    Why does my Reverb suck?

    I have a Monoprice 15w tube amp - it’s decent for my playing level. I swapped out the Reverb tank with one from MOD - but I’m just not happy with the reverb sound. It’s barely “there”. Is it because: - my amp is a cheap-o? (What in the amp would make the reverb better or worse?). - the reverb...

    Replacing a reverb tank on a Princeton Reverb - which to get?

    Hello TDPRI-ers! Have you ever bought an amp second-hand and had to do some work on it? I have a used 65 Princeton Reissue - so far: - New SC64 speaker (sounds excellent, completely fixed the notorious Princeton rattle) - New tubes: Genalex Gold lion 6V6 to replace the ridiculously noisy GTs...

    Got a brand new amp. Is it normal for the reverb to buzz like this? (Video in description)

    Just got a brand new Supro Delta King 12, but noticed the reverb has a really loud buzz/hum that starts when the knob is at about 11 o'clock and gets louder as the reverb is increased. This doesn't seem normal to me. Am I wrong? I didn't take the back off of the amp, but I was able to reach my...

    Twin Reverb Buzzing Issues

    I was wondering if you guys can help me isolate the noise issue with my 65' Twin Reverb Reissue. Things I've noticed with nothing plugged in the amp: -buzz gets louder as I turn up vibrato channel volume, and lesser so when I turn up the normal channel -buzz gets significantly louder and in...

    How to mount reverb tank in standalone reverb unit

    I bought a Weber Revibe kit (which is kind of like a clone of a 6G15, except with an added tremolo section), and I'm uncertain how to mount the reverb tank. I believe that the originals used springs to shock-mount the tank. There are 4 bolts mounted onto the back of the front panel, seen here...

    Love the Tone of a SilverTone 1484, but the reverb....

    Hello All, My friend is in a band, and I've been looking for a portable head unit he could use for practice and gigs. So I found an inexpensive Silvertone 1484 (Number 1) head. (looks rough) The case sways, but my brother is good with wood, so I figured he could make me a box. No reverb...

    Reverb Tank Questions

    Novice amp enthusiast here In planning my first amp build, I've come across an issue with parts I need. The reverb tank I need for the schematic I've put together requires a tank with high input impedance, in the K-ohm range to be close to the output impedance of a 12AU7 at 4k. These high...

    Yesterday was NOCEFLRDT56D!

    Picked up a Sunn Alpha Four powered PA/mixer yesterday, quite cheaply. Sounds ballsy with a guitar straight in. Inside there is an OC Electronics Folded Line Reverberation Device Type 56 reverb tank, which sounds HUGE. Made quite a racket just now. It also has the epic OC label inside. This pic...

    Testing a reverb tank

    The tank is - I think - from a transistor Marshall. Either that or a Blues Jr. My parts stash is not perfectly documented. # is ??B2C1D as far as I can tell. 3 springs, Accutronics. 8DB2C1D seems most likely, so a Marshall it is. 8DB2C1D Type: Short (3 Spring) tank Decay: medium decay Input...

    TAD Reverb Tanks? (8EB2C1B)

    HotRox in the UK carries the obvious two 8EB2C1B tanks (Accusonic, MOD) but also a TAD 8EB2C1B. Anyone familiar with this specific tank or brand? I've not found any info on them anywhere. http://www.hotroxuk.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=8EB2C1B Am considering replacing the damaged tank in my...

    Princeton chorus reverb tank suggestions needed

    Hey guys, I really love the cleans on my Princeton chorus and honestly the reverb is ok. But i know it's a cheap mod so I'm thinking I'll get a new reverb tank for it. I'm looking for a more splashy verb and maybe a little more decay. Any suggestion?? Thanks I'll take speaker suggestions...

    School me on reverb tanks

    I'm curious about how the different physical parameters of a reverb tank affect the sound, e.g. - What is the difference in sound between a short and long reverb tank? - What would a ridiculously short (e.g. 5cm) or long (e.g. 5 metres) tank sound like? - What are the longest and shortest sizes...

    Reverb Tank Impedance Issue

    I need to replace the reverb tank for a Crate Vintage Club 20 but it has a very unusual input/output impedance (1.4K as the tank input impedance and 4K as the output impedance). I found an older thread where someone was helping someone else replace this same tank and recommended a MOD 8FB3C1B...

    Completely removing reverb tank from Blues Junior

    Hi all, Does anyone know how much a stock BJ reverb tank weighs? If I completely removed the reverb tank from my blues junior, would anything go bang? Would i need to bridge the reverb tank send/return leads or could I just pull it all out and tape the reverb control to zero? The reverb tank...
