Permalink Isolate Reverb Unit From Vibration

New Topic
Page 1 of 1

From club gigs with plywood on milk crate stages, to Rock Star mega sub-bass festival stages.... these rubber isolators Isonode have worked for me to control the crashing of the springs in a Fender Reverb Unit. I use them under the entire Reverb Unit, and, they also work when I'm just using my Slacktone Amp, with built in three knob reverb, when I pull the tank out and set it on these isolators. They have figured out the correct amount of softness, I guess, to get true isolation.

They are not perfect, but they frequently save the day for me.

Another good use is to isolate an amp head from a speaker cabinet. It's not a good idea to place a head on a cabinet because it rattles the heater filaments in the tubes. But, these would be good to use to help with that.

You can mount them using the sticky surface, or leave the protective paper on the adhesive like I do, so you can use one set for different things.

I put a piece of thick corrugated cardboard over the entire open side of the pan and wrap the entire pan in a layer of bubble wrap bound with duct tape , which works for me. Sometimes I even put a bit of old carpet on the bottom of the cab (where I have a combo where the tank is resting on the cab floor), and the pan sits quietly on that.

He who dies with the most tubes... wins

Dave: that looks like a slick solution! I have had some bad experiences with the kick on large stages. I eventually took to bringing a memory foam pillow to support the reverb unit. This is way less goofy.

what size did you use

I think I will make a case for mine with memory foam lining it since you said that, hahaha.

If your asking me, the small ones. You might even try using just 3 to the weight/shock absorption ratio correct. The other solutions offered by the above posters creates a remedy that's too cumbersome, size-wise. Even when I used to use bungee cords... the length down to the reverb unit was critical to achieve isolation.

thanks

I think he was. If he was asking me, then the answer is "queen size".
