    When I fire up my amp and I play a note, there's a buzzing sound that for the life of me I cannot locate. I first thought it was the tweeter or something rattling in or on the speaker. But then, get this, after like a couple of minutes, it goes away. This amp would be perfect if it didn't have this initial buzzing sound when I turned it on.

    Any thoughts? Weird, I know . . .

    when was the last time you changed the preamp tube?

    sounds like maybe the tube is going microphonic on you
    until it warms up.
