MOD® Reverb Tanks

The MOD® Reverb Tanks are high quality upgrade units. One of the major differences between the MOD®s and other reverb tanks is that the Transducers are wired directly to their respective RCA jacks as opposed to other 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.

It's possible but requires a good amount of circuitry and possibly an addition power supply. Stand alone spring reverbs are an easier solution and can be put in the fx loop for a similar signal path.

Hey Kenny. You might want to double check with Carr but I think they use a 4AB3C1B in that amp. A 4AB3A1B should work in the Mesa and be closer to that Carr tank. Keep in mind that the circuits around the tanks might have a different sound too.

We don't have an exact equivalent to that tank which would be a 4BB2C1A. One we have that will work is the 4BB3C1B. There are two differences in this tank. The first is that it has a long reverb decay whereas your original tank has a medium. The other is that this tank is meant to be mounted with the open side facing down whereas your original tank is meant to be mounted with the open side facing up.

From the schematic floating around online, this amp has a reverb driver transformer with an 8 ohm secondary. I'm not sure if it will definitely work but the first tank I would try is the 4AB3C1B. This is the standard tank used in Fender amps which as also use reverb driver transformer with an 8 ohm secondary. It's also the same tank in their stand alone reverb unit which is what Dick Dale used.

I see that the short tank 8EB2C1B is for a Fender Vaporizer. It has and Input Impedance 800 Ohms, Output Impedance 2575 Ohms. The 9EB2C1B has the same impedances, in a 16.75" long spring size - is this unit interchangeable? Is there any benefit from the long spring unit vs. short?

The 9EB2C1B will work in place of an 8EB2C1B. I would suggest making sure there is enough room to fit the larger tank. The differences can be hard to describe but a lot of people think that the full sized tanks sound bigger and airier than the small sized tanks. You can also pick a tank with a different decay time to alter the sound. 8EB2C1B and 9EB2C1B will have a medium decay length whereas the 9EB3C1B will have a long decay length.

The schematic found online lists an input impedance of 1475 and an output impedance of 2250 so the FB tanks will be the compatible ones. It also looks like the input needs to be insulated and the output is grounded. The 8FB3C1B looks like it should be compatible as long as the schematic is accurate. If it has room for a longer tank the 4FB3D1B might work but the output jack might need to be modified to be grounded on this tank. This would require jumpering two solder pads on the output jack inside of the tank.

There is a schematic online that lists the following models: L5 Model 308A, L7 Model 309A, L9 Model 312A, and the L11 Model 313A. You might want to check yours against this schematic to make sure it is the same L11. This schematic lists the tank's input impedance as 8 ohms and the output as 2250 ohms. The 4AB3C1B might be a compatible tank. We have no way to verify it but if you have a Fender amp or a friend with one, many of them use the 4AB3C1B so you might be able to test it out.

We can't locate much info on that one. It looks like the schematic shows a transformer used in the driver. If you have access to an impedance meter, you might be able to determine the tank's input impedance by measuring the secondary of the transformer. This would need to be a impedance measurement rather than a standard resistance measurement found on most multimeters.
