The preamp filter caps are grounded to the preamp buss wire.
Now I'm confused. I could have sworn there was a clear photo of that. I must be mixing this up with another thread, or photo from somewhere. My apologies.
I'd still use shielded wires to the reverb pot.
If you remove the reverb tank from the bag, and move the tank physically further away from the chassis (with the reverb cables connected), does the reverb noise problem get any better?
If yes, next try putting the reverb unit back into the amp, facing the opposite direction that it originally was. Does it help if you do that?
Asking the above because another homebrew guy was able to resolve his noisy reverb problem simply by reversing the reverb tank.
(Here's the thread, scroll through it before you change anything on your amp. Note what his reverb prob was and how he solved it: http://www.tdpri.com/threads/prince...h-deluxe-pt-and-ot.758188/page-2#post-7911886)
I swapped the tank and the cables. No real change that I can tell.
One thing I should mention though is that my house has CRAZY EMI. Single coils hum like a banshee.
When I changed the tank today I tested it with the tank on the floor 2-3 feet away from the amp with no difference.
