The Mod Electronics Reverb Tanks are high quality upgrade units. Some of the major differences between the Mod®s and other reverb tanks are that the Transducers are wired directly to their respective RCA jacks as opposed to current production tanks where Transducers are connected by a detachable plug to their respective RCA jacks. This makes the tanks less receptive to any outside interference. The original Hammond Accutronics tanks from the 1960s were also wired directly to their respective RCA jacks. In addition, very close attention has been paid to the spacing and size of the lamination of the Transducers resulting in a more vintage like tone.

Yes, this tank can be used as the most important specs match(input/output impedance,grounding, etc.). The main difference would be that the 8EB2C1B is a shorter tank.

Always pay close attention to the series of letters and numbers associated with each reverb tank. In this case 8EB2C1B.If these numbers match your existing tank then this replacement will be compatible. Please refer to our tech corner article explaining reverb tanks for a fully detailed explanation of what these numbers signify in terms of determining compatibility with your amp.

The proper tank for a Hot Rod Deluxe is a 4EB3C1B.

You always want to pay close attention to the Accutronics numbers. For example in the two tanks you are inquiring about the varied numbers may affect performance and compatibility. I would suggest checking out our tech corner article explaining reverb tanks to determine the tank that will best replace the existing unit.

A 4EB3C1B is what the Hot Rod Deville ships with stock. This is a two spring reverb tank. If you want more reverb with the same decay, try a 3 spring: 9EB3C1B.

I would check your reverb tank and confirm the eight character number on it. As long as the second and third character are the same, you can play around with the other characters. For more information please see our article on reverb tanks. https://www.amplifiedparts.com/tech_corner/spring_reverb_tanks_explained_and_compared

A 4EB3C1B is what the Hot Rod Deville ships with stock. This is a two spring reverb tank with a long decay. For a medium decay look for a 4EB2C1B.

Yes this should work with your Fender Super 60 amp.

According to our resources you need a 8DB2C1B. You may want to confirm this with your original tank.

Either the 9EB2C1B or 9EB3C1B should work. The first one has a medium decay and the second one has a long decay.

This is able to be driven by a reverb transformer and can also be used in solid state circuits, however, the circuit of the amplifier is what dictates what reverb tank is suitable for each application.

It does appear that this is the direct replacement for the tank in that amp.

Purchased this replacement reverb tank (as well as a fresh set of tubes) for my Fender Blues Jr. Great service and delivery and "Jr." is back in business. Thanks much!

Worked great as a replacement reverb tank for a Peavy Envoy 110.

I replaced the stock reverb tanks in both a 2000 Fender Blues Jr. (Accutronics 8EB2C1B) and a 2017 Vox AC15C1 (Belton BS3EB3C1B) with this MOD unit. Both dropped right in with no modifications. In the Blues Jr., the stock reverb was too thin and subtle. This tank made it sound more like a traditional Fender spring reverb. In the Vox, the stock reverb was too thick and overpowering. This unit produced a much smoother, easier-to-dial-in reverb, and not just as a function of the shorter decay time. 5 stars.

The reverb tank sounds great in an Fender Acoustasonic jr amp. Although this amp had the original tank on it's side I just attached the tank on the bottom of the cabinet.

Awesome reverb tank. I didn't hear the sound of original one on this Princeton 65, but this sounds great, matching what can be heard on youtube videos. The overall impression from the construction is very good, an obvious improvement from the original tank. Hope it will also last longer.

When I received this tank (really fast delivery by AES BTW), I thought it looks exactly like the Blues Jr. stock tank - the only difference being the MOD label and one of the connectors is red. Same construction, weight, etc so I thought there's no way this is going to sound any different. But what a difference - much warmer, cleaner reverb. And If you replace the BJ Reverb pot with audio taper, you get much more control to dial in, especially subtle levels.
