Found something strange
I had the chassis out again and noticed that without the reverb cables plugged in the reverb control acts like a strange gain control. As you turn up the reverb the amp volume and gain increases tremendously going into full distortion.  
 
I have never seen another Fender amp do that. Also when the reverb control is turned up the ringing gets worse. It is not the reverb tubes.  
 
Any thoughts? Should the reverb control act this way on this model with the reverb cables unconnected?  
 
Thanks,  
Tim C.
