  1. Hi guys ...

    It's a year since I bought my svt 3 pro and I noticed that the cooling fan is making alot of noice ... also there's a buzz/hiss when I'm not playing ... it seems alot louder than in the beginning I used my rig ... Is this normal ?

    Take it apart and clean the fan before you lose the bearing, if you haven't already. Just blow it off with some canned air. Spray it from all directions. They get dusty and start causing trouble.

    As for the hiss, I really don't know about that. I've never had a hiss that couldn't be taken out with a treble adjustment on the bass. Course, I've only had mine for a couple of months. I may start seeing the same problems.

  4. Hey Fastslapper,

    Do you also hear sort of buzz/hiss when you're not playin' ? It's kinda loud ... and I didn't had that when I used the amp in the beginning ...
