1980 Fender Twin

Postby Mastah_m on Tue Apr 18, 2017 3:29 pm

I recently purchased a 1980 Fender Twin Reverb. It is a blackface model with the master volume that can be pulled for Overdrive. I have fallen in love with the sound of this amplifier however there seems to be one small issue. At lower volumes the amplifier responds nicely and that higher volumes the tone is not compromised. The issue that I'm dealing with is that when I turn the amplifier above 5 or 6 I will get an occasional rattle and a slight Distortion coming through the signal. It goes away for awhile but periodically it comes back. Is this a tube issue? Or does it have something to do with the capacitors and or potentiometers.
