Okay reverb guys:

I finally got around to taking down the chassis, cleaning the pots and switches and soldered in the RCA cables. I have the reverb unit with the correct impedance, but it is slightly too long to fit into the original position. This gives me two mounting choices; I can mount it on the side vertically or horizontally which would place one end of it very close to the speaker magnet.

Any experience and knowledge that can help this decision is greatly appreciated.

Edit:

Some research uncovered that the one I bought is supposed to be mounted horizontal, open side down. What happens if it is close to the speaker magnet?

Well I got the chassis back in place. I set the reverb on top and plugged it in. A few pots still sound a little dirty, but overall, the old relic is working and sounding well although it doesn’t look like much.

For a solid state amp, I can get some really good sounds from it. In less than two years I will have had it fifty years. There is nothing like an old friend.

I will screw the reverb next to the speaker and see if it still sounds the same.

Whichever way you settle on, make sure the input jack on the tank is as far as possible from any transformers your amp may have. Too close, and it can pick up unwanted hum.

Thanks Clint!

Where I am going to try it is far away from the transformer but close to the speaker magnet. We’ll see how it works and go from there.
