Strange sound when I move my new amp.

Just bought a new amp, because I read somewhere that it's what I really need.

It's a brand new Marshall TSL 602. It's a combo amp and it's all valve.

I've never had a valve amp before so I don't know if this is normal, but when I move the amp there's a sound of something moving inside like a metallic springy sound. Is that something valve amps do or is a visit back to the shop in order?

Spring Reverb, perfectly normal.

The same thing happened to me when I first moved my Mesa. First I was scared, then I realzied what it was and thought, "Holy shit, this is awesome." Used that sound as an intro for my old band's songs.

What Arby said.

Perfectly normal.

I happen have a picture of a reverb tank handy. Those 2 long silver looking things are actually springs that are stretched across the length of the tank and add a bit of 'space' to your sound or 3 dimensional feel for lack of a better term. It is somewhat twangy and has a slight slight delay to it.
