      So I am thinking about swapping the cathode cap. The before after photos are missing, and I was just curious to see how you positioned the cathode cap differently. Any chance that you still have those photos? Also, if you have any other suggestions for the parasitic noise, please let me know!

      Thanks in advance for your time!

      Best,

      There's also a subtle parasitic noise when the reverb is engaged. On certain notes, there's a light static at times accompanynied with a very quite harmonic ring modulation overtone. Ruled out dirty pots, and bypassing the verb via the effect return eliminates it.

      Hello! I was just reading your post about your Vibro King and repositioning the cathode cap away from the 5 watt grid resistor. I recently went through mine, having a similar issue where there's a crap load of noise when I tap the tank, but just not getting the verb that I think should be there...tried swapping out several different 6V6's, input and output preamp tubes, changed out the reverb cabling etc.
