    Generally, with increased gain comes increased hum. Unless its really really loud, it sounds normal to me. Are you using single coil pickups? Fluorescent lights don't help either.

    Amp should hum on its own with nothing plugged in. Plenty do anyway, because its cheaper leaving it like that than making it not do it.
