But I'm guessing that with the Valve preamp section running wide open and then gain at 1C3A you are bound to have some hiss.You can always reduce R4 and 5 too a more sane 100k that will reduce some excess hiss but be aware that U3A is active even when the TS part is switched out.As far as the Valve section goes it's a Marshall/Bassman type circuit but volume is after tone stack which means the preamp is full on all the time so hiss will be evident even at lower setting of volume.R17 could be made as a pot for preamp gain, that might have worked better.Sorry I can't think of anything else,Phil.
