YBA200 preamp tube shock mount

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by mzungu, Apr 27, 2006.

  1. Has anybody else removed the three-holed metal plate thing (I think its called a shock mount) in the preamp area of your YBA200? After trying several different preamp tubes I got tired of messing with it and just removed it for good. Is it really necessary for the preamp tubes and should I put it back in?

    Hey, I can't speak to the importance of the preamp braces, but my YBA-200 vibrates like a glass rattlesnake whenever I hit a D at the 6th fret of the A string. It's really annoying.... I like the key of D. Ideas, anybody?

    Actually, I think the entire world would vibrate and shatter if you were able to hit a D on the 6th fret of the A string.

    if the amp is on your cab, put an auralex gamma, thick foam, etc. between the amp and cab to protect from rattling.
  6. Any rattle may require a little EQ adjustment!!!!
  7. Tune to Drop C# or to Eb. Bamm! D on the 6th Fret of the 'A' String.

    And I thought I was the only one who uses that tuning...

    As far as the plate... everything is there for a reason. I say that once you settle on your fav preamp tube combo... put it back in.
  9. A lot of the bands round my area use it. To tell you the truth i don't dig it that much, it was a comprimise as my guitarist wanted to tune BGCFAbD, *shakes head*

    i don't know this head but if it was my Sunn, i would get it cheecked out and if nothing could be done i'd take the amp off the cab.
  10. If the buzz really bothers you, Try playing LOUDER!:)
