Have a listen to this ringing guitar amp?

I'm having trouble with our guitarist's amp tone. There's a very annoying and piercing ring that occurs when he plays, and I wonder if anyone might help me figure out how to tame it.

This clip is a nashville tuned tele reissue through a Fender Twin reissue.

I'm pretty sure it's the amp as I can also hear this when he plays his jag.

Is the amp broken? Or - is this "what you get" for buying re-issue stuff tutt

could be the early stages of a tube going microphonic.

I'd start with the preamp tubes.

I was thinking power tubes, because I've had this sort of thing lately in several different, and new, amps. I also had to change an EZ81 rectifier, though I don't remember the symptoms.
