Ok, seems you need to replace C8,C2 and C1 on the tube board, also C16,12,13,7 and 6 on the tubeboard.

Then on the mainboard all the small caps near the voltage regulators (near the MDRT).

Just out of curiosity, those caps which I know I need to replace, they wouldn't cause the noise I'm getting right?

The noise is now so loud no guitar can be heard.

When you say big caps?  I replaced the big ones near the tranny so they should be good.  Or do you mean one of the smaller ones that I have yet to swap out?

The noise is actually insanse now I must record it and let you all hear it.

emailed you mjmp the caps you give me and hopefully you can tell me where they go.  Soon as I get those installed, we shall see if the noise is still there.  If the noise is still there, further investigation will be needed :thumb-up:

So replaced the caps on the tube board and tested.

Strangely the insane noise I was getting the last time I tested, which was louder than the actual guitar signal"!!!!  is gone....................

seems a bit strange to me as this noise was crazy loud.  I wonder did opening and taking the guts out move something back to where it should have been?  The caps alone don't seem entirely responsible for the fix.

Who knows perhaps they are.  MP1 sounding f**king awesome!  Gonna rehearse with it today.

Will replace the last few caps tomorrow ones situated at the MDRT.
