Is this safe for my amp ?

    Normally with cheaper amps I have always stuffed a couple of patch cords and the power cord for the amp into the back of the cab. My new amp hover has a reverb tank in the bottom of the cab, and the tank doesn't have a protective bag around it like some I've seen.
    If I'm careful will it still be safe for the reverb tank to put 3 patch cords and the amp's power cord into the back of the cab ?
    I live in the middle of nowhere and can't afford to ship a 50lb amp somewhere to fix the reverb.
    Thanks for any and all advice!

    Putting the cables and cord on top of the reverb metal pan should be fine. The fragile parts will all be protected underneath.

    This. With a metal 'verb tank you'd just about have to take yer shotgun to it to do any real harm.

    No problem with the reverb tank but be careful not to shove a cable through your speaker cone.

    Don't let them bounce around and hit your tubes either.
