         Hey... If you have a 2600... open it and look under the reverb 
section.  you'll find a bunch of little white cables.  Check their 
connections some might have cold solder joints.  I had a little noise and 
I checked out the guts. Yes... loose cables,  I guess thats what you get 
with antiques.  It is an antique isn't it???>
