Ampeg Reverberocket

One of the early models with 6V6 output tubes.  A solid state rectifier has been installed in place of the 5Y3, which I initially thought was done to increase the output power, but in fact it was because the rectifier filament winding of the power transformer had been damaged.  I decided to keep the original power transformer but install an auxiliary 5V filament transformer to retain the tone and feel of the original amp.

I also installed a 3-prong cord, replaced the electrolytic caps, fixed the reverb tank and tremolo circuits, and cleaned up some of the earlier work.
