Magnatone MP-1 - which reverb tank do I need?

Postby bloodspoint on Wed May 31, 2017 10:29 pm

I have the aforementioned amp, but a previous owner has removed the reverb tank and the need the reverb level into an additional gain. I'm hoping to reverse that, but I'll need a tank.
The amp in question is this one:

Am I correct in reading that I need a tank with an 8 ohm input and a 2.2k output?
If so, in Reverbese, that would be a 4AB something or other? The schematic references a 25-0005, which doesn't return much from Google.

Thanks!

Sean

Sorry, was referring to the naming convention for reverb tanks the way accutronics does it; e.g., 9EB2C1B.

Looks from Accutronics' site, if I read the 8 ohm in and 2.2K out correctly on the schematic, like a 4AB3C1B would work fine, which is a pretty common tank in the reverb world, bring used in a lot of Fenders over the years.
