Re: What to do about my humming amp?
I'm not sure what op-amps are in use, but you might try checking from pins 4 and 8 to ground, if they are 8-pin DIP op-amps. Use the DC and AC settings of your meter, and see what comes up - you would want to see + and - 12 to 16 volts at these pins, along with an extremely low AC reading. At least you can eliminate the op-amp power supply as a problem this way.
