    I know this is a long shot but thought I would see if anybody had any idea what this noise could be. Ive already checked out all the tubes. At times it sounds like its starting to get better then it gets worse. It still sounds great, even through all the noise.

    Check the filter caps for leakage. These amps already have cap problems. BillM shows this on his site about Blues jr's. The HR's all use the same caps.
    Check the low voltage supply. The 2 cement block resistors at the bottom of the pcb near the power tubes overheat & come loose. This not only makes noise but also affects channel switching.

    Thanks for the info. The channel switching is out as well. I can bump one of those resistors and it goes away. Maybe just needs a resolder. THANKS.
