Hi guys,

I have noticed that my amp makes a pretty loud rattling noise when I am playing sometimes, I notice it the most when there is a lot of feedback etc. It doesn't sound very appealing but I never really realized it probably isn't a good thing until now....

What could the problem be?

EDIT: duh look at sig

well, it could be the reverb tank, it could also be microphonic tubes. depending on what the rattling sounds like.

I'll try to record it but I don't have any recording stuff here and I don't think my laptop mic will pick it up but I'm going to give it a shot I'll post back in 5 to say whether I can pick it up.
