So recently my Fender Blues Jr. has started making 'popping' noise after it's been on for about a minute. The sound somewhat resembles what it sounds like when you plug/unplug the cord into a guitar. However, I unplugged the cord completely and the sound stills continues (note: it's not at regular intervals, it's kind of random).
So I guess this is a multi-part question: 1) What could be causing this? Is there something I (not an amp expert) could do to fix this? and 2) If I should get it checked out by someone who is an expert, what would be the best way of going about that (i.e. finding someone who knows what they're doing and not getting ripped off)?
