Two warnings. spring vibration will be amplified whether it is electrical
(signal) or mechanical (noise). Picture the 'thunk' of a toggle switch or
'pop' of a patchcord and you have the idea.

They are very prone to electrical (magnetic) filed pickup, they would probably
pick up even a toroidal transformer nearby...

Harry... Is this a problem when the reverb is being used, or when it is not
being used, or both.  In other words, are you warning me about the reverb
springs vibrating all the time and creating ambient noise?
