Re: HELP! Hummmmmmmmmm
Whew! Problem solved. Here is what I did:  
1) Ran two separate grounds from the filter caps. One for before the choke and one after. That cleaned up most of the hum.  
2) I soldered the 250mf cap from V1 and the 820 ohm /100K junction off V2 directly to the chassis nearest the components. That got rid of the rest of the hum.  
Thanks again to all,  
Bob P
