I rented a Traynor Custom Special 50 tube combo amp a few weeks ago. When I play even somewhat loudly, especially with the bass cranked up, the amp makes a loud buzzing/rattle noise. I've tried lifting the amp off the ground in different ways, so it isn't caused by the amp vibrating against the floor. So why does the amp buzz?

I think it has to do with the tubes. Can this amp just not handle that amount of bass? Or has it been rented and used/abused from my guitar shop so much that the amp is damaged and/or need repairs. Otherwise, it's a decent amp.

I had that problem with my Carvin. Your tubes need to be replaced. Take it to a tech and have the re tube and bias it.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

I have no idea what that is. But it does the same thing whether I have reverb on or off on the amp.

Maybe call who you rented it from and ask them if this is normal?

A Traynor with a 12" Celestion Vintage 30 in it really shouldn't buzz and rattle.

Edit: Just to clarify, the amp does have a spring reverb in it, and still if that is causing problems then check with who you rented it from.
If I miss one day of practice, I notice it.
If I miss two days, the critics notice it.
If I miss three days, the audience notices it.

the vibration from the bass could make the reverb tank unhappy and cause a lot of noise with the volume up.

i had an issue with the spring reverb on the trace, swapped over a bunch of perfectly functioning tubes from another amp and tested, same thing happened.

there was one time the amp was on and i moved it, and i heard all of this rattle and noise. the little bump on sitting it down made the reverb tank noisy. i threw some thinis h felt washers under the mounts, and screwed it in and it was perfect.

obviously don't do this to a rented amp, but it could be a possibility.
