Hi all - just rec'd a new Z-verb and I have a couple of questions.
I've never had a stand alone reverb before - is it meant to stack on the head? When I try this I get some wicked hum, so I'm thinking the answer is no. I know, lame question...
Second - I'm getting the "whooshing" that's normally associated with a bad/noisy preamp tube in the first position- replaced both the 12AX7/12AT7 - no change - went to replace the 6V6 and noticed a missing pin - guessing this is normal, but is this tube a variant of the standard 6V6? Can I not pop a "normal" 6V6 in its place? thanks for your help! strictly
No stacking, your putting the Z-Verbs electronics on top of working transformers, lots of stray EMF.
That is a 6V6 , JJ just doesn't insert a pin in unused position like other manuf.
Hmmm. I'm wondering if that is why I'm getting issues. I am not stacking it directly on top but I have built a stand that places the Zverb over my Stangray head. Its probably about 3 or 4 inches directly above the Stangray head. Should I not do this?
That explains why I was getting noise from my Z-verb. Had in on top of my Maz, but when I had my KT45 on top of my Maz (switched off) and the Z-verb on top of the KT it was quiet.

will stacking to zverb on my rxjr damage the zverb or rxjr in any way?? or is it basically harmless and just gives off noise?. Ive had mine stacked on the rxjr for a little over a month now with no problems and no noise issues whatsoever???

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
