    I had some of these in my "drip edge" Super Reverb. They are no longer in the amp, but I still have them.

    Truthfully, I think my Super Reverb sounded better with these originals than it does with the blue Spragues that were installed.

    Had no idea Scott was using PCB. Very neat and nice looking work.

    proof that all the hours reading about parts doesn't help when you gotta put solder to them.

    Actually, I was awaiting parts when these pics were taken...it usually works that way with me....hmmm, no parts, let's do something else then like take pics...

    That 500pF is now under the HRM PCB. The amp sounds great now. Lots of smooth gain and very focussed. The best part is that it even sounds great without the Preampboost engaged.

    And OP: I really like this thread. It is cool to see the builds of others. Thanks for starting Rev II. :beer
