Tried out a few guitars and pedals with the Dr. Z Mazerati GT the other day- Guitars are a Les Paul R7 and an old solidbody blues guitar Kay styled Custom Kraft guitar with those killer 50s pickups like the Harmony stratotones have...Amp on 9-10 oclock, fuzzes set on max fuzz and unity volume, airbrake set 2-3 clicks back into a Germino 4x12 w/ G12M heritage 20 watters. All in all not hugely loud set up this way. I'm getting a Port City OS Wave 1x12 cab with a G12-65 Heritage seaker to tame volume. That should be reasonable volume I hope! Please overlook the clams:
A. R7 Clips w/ Mazerati GT.... Here's some Allmanish clean to overdrive with a knob adjustment:
And a Lovepedal Morph Fuzz in Germanium mode:
NEW: a Lovepedal 200lbs of Tone Fuzz and R7:
B. Custom Kraft guitar, bridge pup.... Heres a brief open D slide thingy, no OD:
And another blues short clip:

Its a Kay made solidbody (not hollow) St. Louis Music Custom Kraft. It has some outrageous sounding pickups on it. Neck is straight. I got it at Player Guitars in San Rafael California. Jim from PG takes these old guitars that the 50s blues guys used and sets them up so they are extremely playable. The one I have has a straight neck, little fret wear. The electronics all work fine. Pickups sound amazing. It has an ABR bridge on it which now makes it totally intonatable and a breeze to play. The action is low and the guitar is extremely resonant. Fretting is a breeze, recently I raised the bridge so I could fool around with slide. I have a long long long way to go before I get out of sucksville.
Here's two more clips into a tweed princeton clone amp.

roscoenyc: I have never in my life experienced tube rattle. That said, I've only been playing electric guitar for 49 years.

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
