(a) the tubes are bad/microphonic and they themselves are resonant there
(b) the tubes are microphonic and not resonant, bu the case/chassis is resonant and only that frequency gets back to the tubes.
(c) Something else in the chassis is resonant/microphonic, and getting this back to the outputs.
In either case, try a new set of tubes. Even if this does not fix the problem, you're not just stuck with tubes; you'll need them eventually. You might find a kindly tech to try some new ones temporarily. If the tubes don't fix it, tighten EVERY tightenable fastener on the chassis, and then start chasing cabinet/chassis resonances.
