    If I raise the depth all the way on the tremolo with the Master Volume wide open my speakers begin to make a deep popping/light thumping sort of sound. Anybody know what may be causing this?

    With the intesity all the way up and the master dimed i'd say you must be overdriving it . It is possable you have a tube issue as well that is in the Trem circuit .

    Does this happen when you are playing, or just when the amp is idle?

    Thanks for the responses, guys. This happens when the amp is idle.

    Which tube would it be? I just replaced all my tubes....maybe I received a faulty one?

    Not sure of the EXACT noise you speak of, but my CC2 makes some serious noise with very high levels of tremolo dialed in. Not a 'popping' sound but more of a pulsing or whooshing sound.

    yeah, the noise actually makes my alnico blues thump...like someone is hitting it.

    can any other ac30cc users confirm to see if theirs does this?
