    I desperately need the push-pull/1 meg master volume pot. Can you help?

    The hum balance pot, line out jack and distortion switch were introduced in 1977.

    Other notable features included an ultralinear output transformer, scripted tailless amp decal and an orange sparkle grill cloth.

    The Quad Reverb was discontinued in 1979.

    I have one of these amps since it was made in 74. In addition this amp has a pot accessible from the bottom of the amp chassis which biases the 6L6s. In good condition this amp will belt it out with the best. But, it’s big draw back is the same with all stacks & half stacks. 89 LBS sucks for hauling it about.

      There is one listed on reverb, ebay, and CL in Birmingham, Alabama that appears in good shape, yet pricy.
