Hey guys, I just bought a fender twin and for some reason it pops when I turn the vibrato on and off from the footswitch?
The footswitch is bad and I have to order another one because the reverb switch isnt working, But I was just wondering, should I be worried that it pops?
Its a very loud pop to. Kinda nerve racking for me since im broke right now..

-Danelectro Cool Cat
-Fender Twin Reverb 65' Reissue
-Hardwire TL2

lol your two threads are almost simultaneous
i have a few pedals that pop the first time i turn them on, and some of them randomly start sometimes, i think it has something to do with the AC current being stuck in the pedal... maybe you have a loose connection in your footswitch ?

well for now im just going to not use the switch but when it pops its just like when you unplug your guitar while the amp is still on except its way louder.

And sorry about all the posts...
I just like having all this help on this stuff. =]

I heard somewhere that it is capacitance built up in the switches and when they are turned on, the stored current is then released.

Don't quote me on it though, I don't have any sources.

Is that fixable?

Like I said, I'm not 100% sure if that is the reason. And if it is, I don't know. Sorry man. But I can sell you my Metal Muff with Top Boost

That's happened a few times with my amp, no idea why. If you have someone with another TR footswitch, try using that?

Sounds like the switch might be microphonic?
Try it with a different footswitch would be the obvious first step.

Microphonic switch?

TS - If it were me I'd take it back... A new amp shouldn't have ANY issues.

Oh, well it may not be the footswitch, but whatever... I guess for the deal you got it for you may have to just get over it. Or for the deal you got it for you may have to pay out the ass to a tech to get it fixed. Didn't you test it out first?

I don't know a lot about these amps but is it possible the reverb has it's own tube? Maybe that tube is microphonic. Never heard of a microphonic switch before.

I believe these amps have had some QC issues.

Based on your NAD and what you play I'd........oh never mind.

So it doesn't pop when you hit the vibrato switch on the amp?

There is no vibrato switch on the amp.
It only activates with the footswitch.
And to everyone wanting me to get a new amp... Im changing my playing style. K?

I think that the reverb is tube-driven, but it's been a while since I read up on all that fun stuff. I read about it on some website that sells NOS tubes, if that helps at all.
