Re: Reverb hum
Bob,  
 
as Mark said, the bag is to dampen mechanical feedback. This is more critical in a combo amp than in a head. I've seen heads with the reverb tank on rubber washers and they worked fine. But when the tank is in the same cabinet as the speaker, a bag is highly recommended (sometimes you can find a place where the magnetic field of the speaker is weak, so you could try this first).
