so what's the real purpose?
to simply protect?
to dampen vibrations?
hide your weed..
I can't tell you how many bags,spliffs I've found..
I believe to dampen vibrations by allowing the tank to be protected but not firmly atteched to cabinet which would transmit more vibration to it.In short it does both.
Yep, that's it. My amp started without the reverb unit bag, and I was getting a nasty mechanical vibration on certain notes. The bag solved the problem.
that's what I was thinking
converting a combo to a head and trying to figure out if I need to account for the reverb size with bag
Try holding the tank up near the chassis first (where it will be in head)to see if noise will be an issue. Many reverbs mounted too close to amp curcuits are miserable. Maybe consider placing tank in speaker cab?
There's another reason - it's to keep the tank free from dust and crap.
Related question... does a larger/longer reverb tank make a better sounding reverb? "Better" is a bad word... how'bout richer, more versatile, wider ranging... any of the above??
