    I recently got a 70's checkerboard 4 X 12 that now has 70 watters. I love this cabinet, and it adds so much to my rig. The only problem is I can hear a deffinite sympathetic buzz coming from the handles when I hit certain notes. Any way of damping this besides taking the handles off, wheatherstripping them and re-riviting them?

    Duct tape? Just a thought.

    If your sure that it is the handles (and perhaps not the back panel that isn't tight against the post), couldn't you use carefully-applied silicone to the handles? Perhaps from the inside?

    I thought about the silicone idea too, or maybe some of that "foam in a spray can" stuff for around handles, inside the cab. (You know that stuff that comes out like a spray, from the straw-like attachment on the can, and expands into a plyable foam when the air hits it.)

    Just a few quick ideas........

    I had a similar experience with my 71' 120W red cabinet. I have tightened the screws on the back panel and the buzz was gone.

    Thanks, I will try the screws on the back first. I wonder if I can smash the rivits on the handle to tighten them up? I would imagine the possibility of breaking the plastic handles is pretty high on that operation.

    Well, a bead of glue from the hot glue gun did the trick.

    Most of the times the best solution is the easiest.
