High pitched whine
06/09/12 at 18:24:07
 
My MT has started making a very high pitched whine. It sounds like its coming from the tubes. Ive had tubes buzz and hum before but this is much higher frquency. Just trying to troubleshoot.

Start changing tubes I guess. You may wish to start with the inputs and then the rectifiers.

I always thought is was the OC2 whining with that high pitch. I think I added dampers, but I can't remember if that solved it.
