    What's your thoughts on what is the best footswitch mod for reverb on a Blues Jr?
    I want one and googled and there's quite a few ways to do this. Which one is the best you recon?

    For the Hot Rod series amps that don't have footswitchable reverb I always recommend just using a splitter cable at the reverb tank side. A Y cable where one end goes out to a simple on/off footswitch works great, and allows you to put the amp back to stock in a few minutes with no circuit modifications.

    Yes I've thought of this mod. I really like the idea to get it back to stock easily. Some mods seams sturdier but they all involve soldering to the board and that I'd really like to avoid.
