Re: Reverb hum
the pickup coil (the "output" side) of the reverb tank is very sensitive to hum (especially from the PT). Shielding will have no effect on magnetic fields. I had this problem recently when I added reverb to a Tonemaster head. Try to move the reverb tank to find a place where it doesn't hum. Try different cables and make sure you don't get any ground loops.
