    So I've had this amp (MG30CFX) for about a year and half now. It's great I love it, wouldn't change it unless it was an upgrade. However around Christmas as my band started to doing a few more rehearsals I noticed a quiet crackling noise coming from the amp, I play on a relatively low gain on the crunch setting and when I playing more clean things (like Sleepwalk by Brian Setzer) its really noticeable when I stop playing, not as much with like my Big Muff or another pedal on. I figure with more movement I probably got some dirt in it. So if that's solved, how would I go about cleaning it? Any tips? Any Feedback on what my problem may be? Thanks!

    Clean all your input jacks and pots with Deoxit. Make sure your cable is good and its not the guitar. Does it make the noise when nothing is plugged into the amp?
