I'm asking for help from anyone who has experience with the early (2004) Rockerverb 50.

I got a used 2004 Rockerverb 50 on ebay. It had the following: Broken reverb tank wires (now fixed), unshielded reverb cable, and Dagnall transformers. I never use reverb, so does that mean I don't need a shielded cable? I have replaced the Dagnall OT and choke with MM, this made a noticable and welcome improvement! The PT seems to be functioning fine, however, would putting a Mercury Magnetics PT help anything? Lastly, I've heard that the early RV50s sometimes suffered from cold solder joints. How can I tell if I have this problem?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
I've got a hand-wired JTM45. It's right next to my Rockerverb 50. They're lovers, not fighters, and they make beautiful music.
