Reverb tank grounding

Some like 'em and some don't, but I bet everyone has at least a couple — Analog Delay, Digital Delay, Reverb, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Tube Overdrive, Transistor Overdrive, Fuzz, Octave Fuzz, Tremolo, Vibrato, Compressor and the list goes on!

Reverb tank grounding

Postby buzzman on Mon Feb 13, 2017 8:04 pm

I’m looking for a particular reverb tank for my Ampeg GVT15-112. The stock tank is the common 8EB2C1B, but I’m looking for a two-spring replacement to tame it a little bit. So, from what I can tell, I need a 1EB2C1B, which I don’t think exists – or if it did, it is no longer made. As an alternative, I’m considering the 1AB2B1B from AES. From what I can tell, everything seems to match except the grounding configuration (input grounded, output insulated). The 8EB2C1B is the opposite (input insulated, output grounded). Will this be an issue? Thanks!
