Hi Hoopnholler

I would start by changing out 12AT7 (V4), is a common buffer stage to the vibrato and reverb audio path. If you have trouble identifying it, you can just swap out with a known good tube and see if it resolves your problem.
If that does not help, then time to go see an amp doctor. If youy are inclined. here is a circuit diagram that you may find useful in faultfinding the problem yourself.
.
I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

I have a '93 Fender Blues deluxe tweed and don't seem to have any reverb, am I missing something?


Check the connection to the reverb tank (rectangular box usually sitting on the bottom of the amp). There are a pair wires that connect it to the amp. If wires are connected, and the reverb is not working, you may need to replace the reverb tank.

Sometimes the reverb works, then next day it dont.i have a 1999fender hot rod deluxe


Fender Amplifiers are notorious for their reliability issues.However, I'm sure that amp will sound sweet once you get everything working again!

The problem is likely your "tank". The tank contains the springs which create reverb as the guitar's signal is sent through them. A broken spring could be causing your problem.

Luckily, any of the larger music stores should have them avalible.

Good Luck!

My reverb on my Fender deluxe Hot rod amp has stopped working. What is wrong?


Your reverb spring is most likely broken. If it has electronic reverb, then the chip has gone out. For both of these problems, a qualified amplifier technician will have to look at it and replace the parts.


Hope that helps!

My Fender Hot Rod Deville reverb is not working. What should I look for in trying to fix this problem


There are two coils in the reverb unit which use delicate wires which can break off - these can easily be checked, as follows:-

i) Remove one cable plug from the reverb unit & substitute an uncapped phono plug to the socket.Then check that there is electrical resistance across the plug terminals.

ii) Reconnect original phono plug & do same test as i) to the other socket.

iii) If either is open-circuited, then look for a break in the lead-out wires from the corresponding coil inside the reverb unit.
This break may be repaired (contact me for details) or buy a new reverb unit!

iv) If there is electrical resistance at both sockets of reverb unit, then clean both original phono plugs & try the system again.

How do i connect the boss gt 10 to a fender blues deluxe amp and bypass the amps preamp


You can plug the output of the gt10 into the "power amp in" jack of the Fender. This bypasses the preamps in the Fender but uses a buffer amps in the Fender to drive the power amp. Please note that the reverb is STILL in the circuit when you do this. You can turn the reverb to zero if you wish to disable it.

Fix Reverb unit on Fender Hot-Rod Deluxe Amp


Could have broken a spring in the reverb tank, or a wire connecting it to the amp, or the reverb driver tube, or a few other things, but those are the most likely in this situation. Thats what I'd check first. Give it a little slap and if it vibrates like normal, your spring is probably ok, you can still open it up and double check though. Check your wires. Then pull your reverb driver tube and replace it. If that doesn't work, it is probably in the circuit somewhere, and you should not work on your amp unless you know what you are doing. They store large amounts of electicity in the caps and they can kill you.

I have a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe. It has very few


First try turning the volume control down before turning switch to operate.

IF this seems to fix it, IF the unit has a tank reverb, the vibration of the reverb springs MAY be causing the problem. The solution then is to reduce the volume before applying power WHICH is a good idea anyway... from an electrical engineer.
