I have found a few bad input resistors.And i know in old fenders,alot of the noise problems are from lod carbon resistors,sound like bacon frying..lol and pops and hiss. But i like the sound of the carbon resistors.  
seem more smoother to me. Alot of new amp designs are useing border line resistor ratings.. maybe to save a few cents on each amp? The little pro jr is an example. The power resistors heats up enough to get loose and the vibration,makes it fall off the board. HAd at least 3 of these like this. I still think about every part in an amp has some factor in how the amp sounds. All you have to do,is change a value or type componet used and listen.. the tone changes. maybe not much but it changes. {~}==:::Richie
