    I have more if needed. I tore mine apart today out of boredom. Installed tilt legs and rubber feet. Considering switch to a 12" speaker.

    I put a 12" in my '67 decades ago. Then about 5 years ago I bought a Deluxe Reverb OT for it. Good news - there's already an empty screw hole in the chassis for the slightly longer OT. Bad news - it interfered with the center-mounted 12" so I had to cut a new offset baffle. Good news - it sounds great. So much so I sold my little-used DRRI.

    What rubber feet did you use? Any drilling involved?

    Peavey Small Rubber feet. I bought the large rubber feet, but they seemed like overkill on this amp. I just pried off the sliders and drilled 1/8" pilot holes in the center of where they were. Nothing to it. Probably will put a set on my Blues Jr. someday.

    Is this the 68 reissue? Just looking because I’d like to see what others have done cheaply... I find the the best thing I did was get it 3 ft off the ground on a stable stool ... really let’s me hear more than on the floor and I don’t find it so bass heavy anymore... mine has a JBL 3110 in it I think (can’t remember for sure) but I like it a lot with that simple raising it up

    Yes, the Silverface. I tilt my Princeton and stack my 69 Vibra Champ on top of it.

    Well it is only a couple years old and never been opened. It is a reissue. It sits in my living room to earn its keep.
