Blackface Super Reverb in the Shop !

Fender Super Reverb, Blackface era….who couldn’t love an amp like this?  !!

This one has gone its entire life (so far) without any of the electrolytic capacitors having been replaced. The end result is lots of hum and the amp is lacking some kick.

Look at the power supply caps (see photo below) you can see that one capacitor (farthest left) has oozed-out some electrolyte, and another cap (2nd from right) has a “pimple” that is about to pop and do the same thing – oooze out electrolyte.

This amp is going to sound so much (SO MUCH) better once the power supply is working properly! Can’t wait to here it then!
