      I’m getting a squeel oming from the amp I disconnect the reverb tank and it goes away. I tried contact cleaner it worked for a short spell but it came back. Any ideas on a fix. Possibly replacing reverb tank…..

        I had the same problem, it appeared to be the casing on the reverb tank picking up sympathetic vibrations and causing feedback in the reverb. I shimmed the casing with some folded up business cards under each edge of the casing, being careful not to put the card so deep they interfere with the springs. Started with one folded up card under the middle of each edge, added more cards until feedback stopped. The idea is to make a little cardboard damper between the casing of the tank and the cabinet.
