well i got a traynor ycv20wr from ebay and LOVE it. It's a bit too loud but w/e. I have one major concern though. On high volumes and low notes, the thing rattles pretty intensely. Hence, I ask... is there any efficient/cheap/preferrably no cost way to eliminate this rattling? It's quite bothersome. Thanx for your help

Where's the rattling?

its probably the tubes rattlling. I had the same problem with my peavey classic 30.

I bought something called "Toms Tube Tamer" online and that stopped the rattling completly but im not sure if that will work on all amps, it think it might be fit just for the classic 30.

I did this earlier
How is it posiitoned? Next to a wall? If so move it away from it and hopefully that'll let the moving air flow away from the amp stopping the rattling

Does it have a spring reverb unit? If it's not secured to the amp right, that can rattle as well. My valveking was rattling, and it was because two of the screws on one side were way loose. Also fixed the crashing and grinding noises I was getting with reverb on, naturally. Kind of nice to be able to play with reverb on without it sounding like I'm inside the hull of an icebreaker.

It does have a spring reverb unit. But I can't quite figure out which part of the amp it is. And I probably have to take my amp apart again to search for it (I had to do it to change tubes)

tube combos do that, it's one of the main reason I don't like them for anything other than recording.
