upgrade reverb tank on RV50 mk1?

Post by tayholliday » Tue Dec 29, 2020 5:40 pm

Anyone know if the reverb tank on a RV50 mk1 could be upgraded to a longer tank? I noticed that it's a shorter tank (around 10" long), and it seems like there's enough clearance inside the amp to put in a longer reverb.

thanks!

I would think that if there is enough room, you could swap out the tank....

I called Orange USA and I was wrong: a channel is routed out for the reverb tank in the top of the case, so a longer one won't fit. Also, upgrading the tank would require changing the impedance of the send and return for the reverb.
