How much do your combos rattle? Just curious if some rattle is common, when at higher volumes.
None that I can hear.
None. Main one I use is dove tailed, glued, screwed. It better not rattle.
The room it is in sometimes rattles.
I've had rattling in the past but always what I could fix with some temp resistant cloth and a screw.
Yeah, half the time I can't figure out if it's the amp rattling, or something in my room.
I have dealt with this from time to time. Some do, some don't.
Have one now that has some rattle but I'm just not motivated enough to track it down. Lucky for me, my room rattles more than the amp so it wouldn't make a difference if the cab was totally rattle free
I will say it does bug the **** out of me. If I were in a studio, then I would not sleep until it was fixed. For now, meh.
My VHT combo used to rattle. I put more velcro for the grillecloth mount and it fixed it just fine.
Drives me crazy. I Try to only get heads now.
I used to have a mesa subway rocket reverb that rattled something fierce. ended up selling it. my blues deluxe does not rattle at all, even fully cranked up.
I have a classic 30 that has absolutely zero rattles, which is not common at all for these Amps. Normally they sound like a marracca but this one is dead quiet all the way up the dial
Same here. The only combo I have anymore is a Mesa Tremoverb.
That rattles other things around it---like houses and large industrial machinery.
I bought a '68 Fender reissue Deluxe Reverb and it rattled even at low volumes.
Sent it back---because of that and some sound issues. Replaced it with a Blonde '65 DRRI Head.
Now only the walls of my house rattle.
Mine used to, but somewhere I found a guy selling a nifty little double spring holder that keeps the output tubes sitting tight. That got rid of about 95% of all rattle. It clearly wasn't the cab in my case, but the tubes being rattled by the vibration.
If it runs on EL84's....yes
I've never had a combo rattle.
Maybe I was just lucky.
