    These are just Fender knockoffs, so whatever model its closest to (Deluxe rev?), just use a replacement for that. Since the recto tube was wasted, its likely the filter caps are gone as well.

    I have an Elk Custom 30 with the same problem, no vibrato. The tube that controls the circuit is 6AQ6 as I can best remember. While many of the characteristics are similar to a 12AX7, there are differences in plate voltages and the heater elements, as I can vaguely remember. Rather than dig into the circuitry, I'm going to find the correct tube and try it first. I'll get back to you in the future if I have positive results. Good luck in your search. Ollie
