Just got a HT Stage 60 Mark II 2x12" 60-watt Tube Combo Amp. I ran through the clean all the way through the overdrive channels at full power as well as limited. I got most everything dialed in, however I hear a distinct "wah" sound no matter what I try on high gain. I can reduce that a bit by turning the mid's way down but that also removes some of the punch and bass along with it. Tried several guitars from a Les Paul to a Jackson to a Ernie Ball, all sound unique but still have the same wah effect. So to clarify, imagine if you hooked up wah pedal, switched it on and pushed the pedal back to about 80% - that's what I'm talking about. Clean channel does NOT do this.

I have Fender 2 x 12 modeling amp that has the same Celestian speakers (seventy 80) and I also hear a similar effect on that amp. Is my hearing going wonky? Has anyone else noticed this? Maybe I should go through my studio rack and turn up the monitors to see if I still hear these ghosts in the machine.
