It's happened to me a couple times on two different amps, I'll need to move it just a little but I'm too lazy to turn it off and then it sounds like something exploded. What is happening, and can this damage the amp?

I have no idea. But I do have a theory I strongly believe in. These amps have tubes, I guess if they were loosely put together, they might disconnect from one another, then the vacuum inside of the tube would make that noise. I dont even own one, so this could all be a pile of cra p your reading.

It's got to do with the tubes OR there is spring reverb in the amp. My amp is a solid state, yet the spring reverb shakes in there, creating a scary noise.

Now, my drummer's called old Fender bassman tube amp thingy makes noise if you punch the top of it =P I don't think it has spring reverb and I think it's the tube.

if they had reverb on, it may have been the spring in it. i dont know if it hurts it, but i usually try to avoid doing it

No ideqa what it is or what it isn't, I've never noticed because I'd usually turn the power off before moving em.

If I were you I'd be very careful. Don't know whay I say that but it sounds like good advice

Yeah mine has spring reverb and it sounds like it has something to do with a spring so that makes sense.
