    Seems you are getting reverb'd pops, so the tank and recovery are working.
    Doesn't seem that enough signal is getting to the driver, even though the reverb transformer will drive a speaker. So maybe not enough getting there although some is.
    Or maybe something is miswired and the reverb signal is getting swamped by the (too much) dry.

    .001uF cap to the on/off Reverb Pot was bad...replaced it and I'm in chiming shimmery Gretschy/Valco heaven

    Thank you all for putting up with my lack of knowledge and helping me fix my first amp ever!
    She is mostly original, but a previous owner changed the baffle board to a 3x10 instead of a 2x12. So I have 2 SICA SLD 10/80s in parallel on the reverb side, and a single vintage Jensen p10R on the normal channel.
    Cheers - Dc
