Guitar Player's review of the Carrera - concerns re chassis

Post by RockNote » Sun Sep 13, 2015 9:46 am

Searching for the old Guitarist review of the Carrera, I stumbled upon a review of the Carrera in Guitar Player Magazine, which I had never read before. Although they agree with Guitarist in giving the amp a favourable review, they nevertheless voice the concern that the "Chassis is held in place with only two screws and doesn’t feel solidly anchored to the cabinet." What do you think of this?

My used Carrera arrived with those two bolts (there are nuts on the other side so they're not screws) slightly loose and the chassis rocking back and forth within the cabinet. Took the back panel off and tightened the bolts; it's as rigid as I can imagine now.

I don't think it's a problem as long as you address any loosening of the nuts when you notice it.
