Re: ringing reverb
I'm not familiar with the ampeg gemini, but I had the same problem with my Gibson Falcon. Two things really helped and I don't have the problem anymore:  
1. It didn't have a bag for the tank. I enclosed the tank in a vinyl bag and secured it to the bottom of the combo and it helped TONS. I think it dampens the tank's vibrations.  
2. Replaced the reverb driver tube. The tube was very slightly microphonic and this helped a lot also.  
Hope this helps!
