    I have a Fender Twin Amp (I believe its a 2005). The tubes all seem to be working, but if I dial in even a little bit of reverb, I get this loud hissing noise. Does anybody have any experience with this? Can I just replace the reverb tank? Thanks for your help guys.

    Try replacing the reverb tube first.

    Do you get any reverb at all?

    I would agree with the first post, try chaning out the reverb tube. The tube could be bad even if you are still getting reverb. If that doesn't work, I would take it to a qualified local tech.

    There's no reverb coming through at all, just that hissing noise. Right now I can only use the amp if I dial the reverb off completely on the amp.

    Unplug the reverb cables from the back of the amp and see if that changes anything.
