Just bought a R1000 and it's got a little distortion in the background at low volumes. I heard it in my horn on my RL810 cab (thought it was the horn but no) and also heard it in my practice cab. Is this normal or did I get a bad head? ALSO where can I find replacement knobs of a different color?

Do it happen at loud volume? Try some contact cleaner and take your time cleaning all controll knob and then open amp and remove all ribbon cable ( one at a time ) and clean and reseat them. Hope this works for you.

Don't forget to hit ALL of the input & output jacks - a dirty jack, especially in the effects loop circuit, will cause this, too.
