Hi guy's/gal's<br /> I have bought a Fender 68 Delux Reverb Siverface<br /> After getting it delivered I found it had a very annoying hiss on both channels and thumping noise when I switch it on to stand'by, I sent it back to Fender in London UK after a phone call from Fender they told me it was all tested and ok,<br /> after it being returned to me,I found it to be same as when I sent it,after ringing Fender again the engineer told me to let it settle down after transportation but a couple of weeks later it was still the same,so I decided to NOT get back intouch with Fender as I lost faith in them. So I have a Fender amp I NEVER use how sad that is.

Try posting this in either the New Fender Amp section or in the Amp Repair section of this forum.<br /> You may get some help on how to address the issues with others who may have experience with this amp.<br /> <br /> I will agree that "let the amp settle down" isn't much help.<br /> <br /> I don't have any direct experience with this particular amp, however, a "thump" when toggling the Standby switch is pretty normal - just a capacitor discharge and not anything to really worry about. <br /> <br /> Not sure about the hissing - could be a lot of things. Do you have any spare tubes you could substitute to see if it's related to those?
