    Replacement Transformer For Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissue - wiring question

    I have some questions about the wiring colors/assignments when using the Mercury Magnetics APS FDR-PRI Transformer as a replacement in a Fender Deluxe Reverb 65 Reissue (DRRI). I am hoping somebody might take a minute or two to help.

    Please refer to the Fender DRRI and the Mercury Magnetics schematics attached. The Fender schematic I will reference is on page 6 of the attached Deluxe Reverb RI Owner's Manual.

    The solid red, solid yellow and solid green wires are self explanatory and pose no questions as to their use when comparing the schematics.

    On the Mercury Magnetics replacement transformer - does the "red/yellow" wire correspond exactly to the "red/yellow" on the Fender schematic? Does the Mercury wire marked "red/wht" correspond to the "red/blue" on the schematic?

    Finally, on the Mercury transformer, do I cut back and insulate the "grn/yel" wire?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Yes, the red/yellow are the same and the red/white is equivalent to the red/blue of the original for the bias supply.

    And the center tap for the 6 volt filaments is not needed, so insulate the green/yellow wire.

    All

    I want to also give props to the tech support at Mercury Magnetics, in particular Patrick Selfridge, who replied to this same question within a few hours of my sending it.

    Good tech support is hard to find sometimes, but not at Mercury Magnetics!
