Spring Reverb Tanks Explained and Compared
Curious how Spring Reverb Tanks work? Do you have an old amp that the reverb tank has finally given out on but aren’t sure what tank to get to replace it? This article explains how the tanks work and helps you figure out what the numbers on your tank mean and guides you with picking out a new reverb tank.
Man, it’s been a while!
Here’s a mid-60s Premier 90 tube-driven spring reverb I sold a couple weeks ago. Fresh capacitors and a 3-prong power cord brought this thing back to life!
Fender Rhodes & Small Stone.
Why, yes this is a Fender Rhodes, and yes, I did find it abandoned on the street with a “free” sign on it. After I managed to lug it in to my apartment I plugged it in and discovered that the keys still work but that electronics do not. However, unless the price to get such a thing fixed is prohibitive, I am thinking I just made the street score of my life.
Anyone out there give me some advice on how to fix these things?
I think there is an issue with the pickup rail or the out put circuit… I am just repeating what I found online just now of course. I really don’t have any idea what either of those things are, or where they would be located, and if found, how one might fix them… But! I did find a place down in San Mateo that works on these guys.
