  1. Well, I hope my new tubes are good and this never happens again. ;) Maybe I try it one of these days.
  2. So it seems there are two versions. I'm sure my values are correct too. Specially C25, I know it well because it exploded two times because a deffective tube. The idea about the dwell control looks interesting. I played with R31 value (put a 4M7 pot in parallel) and it did nothing, but now I guess changing both resistors for a pot as you suggest should work... My 4 last digits: 0059.
  3. Hello. I've updated the schematic to adjust the values of C6/7 (150p) and C25 (22u). I checked the other components and are all ok. Here's the schematic and component list checked one by one.

  4. Try this: increase R32 from 100K to 330K. Happy new year.
  5. Hi. I've looked inside a Fender Deluxe 112 of my own to find what kind of reverb it contains. Casually it's an accutronics 8EB2C1B, so I've quickly changed them to see what happens. First I've measured the impedances: Accutronics 8EB2C1B (Fender): IN=59O / OUT=205O Ruby 2EB2C1B (Epiphone): IN=77O / OUT=220O After the change, the fender reverb sounds wors than before, but it's still acceptable. The Epi with the accutronics tank: the reverb sounds simply less than before, neither better nor worse: very little volume and very very short, and still the annoying behaviour of the pot at the last quarter remains the same, maybe a little better than before. Conclusion: it's not an improvement at all. Now I know that the solution is in the electronics. The tank I've used is quite old (about 12 years or so) but it sounded ok inside the fender.
  6. Hi. I'm Javier from Spain. (excuse my bad english) I've got an Epiphone Valve Senior since a few days and I'm very glad with it, except for the pressence pot (it does nothing) and... yes, the reverb. It sucks, literally. The behaviour of the stock reverb is exactly like you describe it, blackmore1514k (ta'nteráo? intento decir que la reverb tal como viene responde exactamente a tu descripición), but it really disturbs the sound from 3:00 on. So I don't think changing the reverb tank really fixes the problem, but tweaking some electronic components values should do... at least I hope so. I have no idea about the how, my electronic skills are very basic.
