Question about Peavey Valveking Vk100 Guitar Head
You may simply be overdriving the clean channel and causing it to "flat top" . See if it occurs when you back the gain down a bit. New tubes PROBABLY will not help and be a waste of money. You may be unconciously playing harder during the popping episodes. You cannot hear level variations smaller than about 3 Db BUT the electronics will sense much smaller variations. You could gently tap the tubes with a lead pencil to listen for any pops... NOTE: tubes can be slightly microphonic so some sound from tapping is normal.
Yes, a cable can be noisy and not show itself when using intentio0nal distoprtion... try another to verify it is not the problem.
