Comments: * Some of the PRO RVB AA1069 Circuits (Silverface with the Mid control)came with a solid state rectifier. * Fender switched back to the blackface era cosmetics some time in 1980. Pro Reverbs produced between late 1980 and 1982 have a black control panel and silver sparkle grille cloth. * A Boost switch, master volume, and hum balance control was added before Pro Reverb was discontinued.

    I recently acquired a 1976 Pro Reverb #A-20095 and it had been stored (and NOT very conscientiously I might add) for the past 20 years. I had to replace the wall plug as it had been cut off. Lo and behold i plug it in and she fired right up , there does seem to be a short of some sort when I warm it up it sometimes doesn’t punch right into it’s wonderfully clear distinct sigh voicing s , it is as if it with a few wiggles of the Master Volume Pot is jostled into submission . NOTE sometimes easier than others and it is accompanied by a rather rude “hum” or disruptive signal. What would or could be the possible trouble shooting area’s I should check and can figure on as the possible culprit in my Amps vulgar entrance when called upon to electrify my strings
