List of tasteful modifications that I'm implementing that allows me to maintain an honest '65 vibrato channel circuit, but with additional tricks. I learned a lot of these tricks from comments on my YouTube channel as well as from Rob Robinette's website. NOR channel tone stack will be a Fender Custom Shop Dual Professional stack Polyester Orange Drop capacitors - (Original '65 used polyester, the DRRI uses polypropylene blahh) Metal film resistors anywhere that's going to ground as well as RN70 plate load resistors Mogami coax internal wiring for sensitive signal areas Silver Mica caps replace all-ceramic caps Move the power supply from the dog house to inside the amplifier NOR channel added reverb Wirewound power supply resistors for the lowest thermal noise floor VIB/NOR channel with push/pull volume pots for bright cap Mid pots added in place of Input 2 on both channels Alembic style preamp out so I can run the preamp into another power amp (like my SSS) 😎 Jerry Garcia style mod Vibrato disconnect switch like SRV's Vibroverb 50KRA with switch https://www.tedweber.com/wp503ras Do It Yourself Layout Creator (DIYLC) layout and all of my files for this project located on my GitHub https://github.com/colganr/fender-deluxe-reverb YouTube Playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7cXUZ8g7NhSbACVai7X8FXtYO0IpqZlp As-built layout
