ok, so I was asking in another thread about sustain, but I figured I'd make a new one for this. I am not sure if there is a problem or not, so I'll let you guys let me know what you think. I have a BlueVoodoo, and there is a rattling noise when carrying it around (to the car, into the studio, etc) This isn't while I'm playing might I add, it's literally like from something shaking or rattling around inside is what it sounds like, like some tin rattle thing. I'm not sure if it's just one of the metal parts inside the amp or if this is a common thing to make a noise while moving the amp around etc. thoughts?
Thanks again, you guys have been a huge help

um....that is probably the reverb tank dude


also, post in here if you are still not sure

it could be something else is loose.

the reverb tank should be pretty easy to identify and remove if you want to double check


*well, at least the pics I just looked at it looks like it has true spring reverb tank*

I happen to have a pic handy because I was helping someone else with something.

This is what it looks like. In a combo it will be attached to the bottom. In an amp head, it will usually be attached to the top of the headshell. Some amps have digital reverb - in which case you won't find a reverb tank and it also won't 'jangle' because there are no springs. The tanks are attached via those red and white RCA type jacks.

Just FYI
