Will this work on an ac30 cx2
Asked by Anonymous on January 31st, 2018.
Typically the Vox AC30's take a 9EB2C1B.
Yes, it will. It has a longer decay than the 9EB2C1B.
Is there a "c" version of this model that would work on a '93 reissue fender reverb unit?

If you are referring to the mounting plane then we would not have a 9AB3C1C.
Can this unit be mounted vertically?
Asked by Anonymous on March 22nd, 2017.
The mounting plane for this tank would be horizontal open side down.
How big is the tank? 6in?

The tank in this kit is a 9AB3C1B and is a long tank (16.75").
Will this tank work in a Fender Super Sonic 22. Specs are slightly different.
Asked by Anonymous on February 1st, 2018.
The 4AB3C1B and 9AB3C1B are compatible with each other.
will this 3 spring work as a replacement for the 2 spring 4AB3C1B? the input and output impendences are slightly different. The 4AB3C1B is 8ohm input and 2250 ohm output.

The Input and Output impedance must match in order to be an acceptable replacement.
Currently have an 8AB2A1B, will the difference in insulated/grounded ins/outs still work?
Asked by Anonymous on August 17th, 2018.
We wouldn't advise using a tank that has different insulation points and input and output impedances. We do carry a 8AB2A1B in both the MOD and Accutronics brand that you can view here:
Will this work in a Hughes and Kettner edition 20th anniversary as a direct replacement? The original tank is STAMER 008-CB3E1E-STA 959006.

This appears to be a different tank than the one in question. The most important specs that are required are the input and output impedance. If your amp has a 10 Ohm input and a 2,575 ohm output impedance, this should work for your amp.
I'm restoring a mid-60's Benson 300 tube amp and wanted a replacement reverb tank. My technician told me the values were 176-Ohms input and 168-Ohms output. Since none of your tanks had those values I just tried the MOD-9AB3C1B. I could hear it slightly, but the sound level was much lower than the tank I was replacing. Can you help me find something that will work in a 2-, or preferably 3-spring long delay...perhaps a MOD or TAD?

There is a schematic online that shows a Hammond IV C. If this is the same as a Gibbs type C, the Accutronics code is 4FB3D1B. Please check the schematic along with your amplifier to confirm.
Will this fit a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe?
Asked by Anonymous on January 26th, 2020.
It would physically fit, but the 4BB3C1B and the 4EB3C1B are the designated tanks for the Blues Deluxe and the Blues Deluxe reissue respectively.
I've just built a StewMac Fender ’64 Reverb 6G15 Kit that comes with the Accutronics 4AB3C1B Reverb Tank that is rated at Input: 8 Ω and Output: 2,250 Ω. I want to move to the 3-spring tank. This one is Input: 10 Ω Output: 2,575 Ω. Will this tank work in the 6G15 kit? Will the difference in ohms cause any problems?
Asked by Anonymous on April 14th, 2020.
The difference in impedance ratings between the two tanks is close enough to use without concern of damaging the unit in any way.
Can this 9AB3C1B tank replace a 9AB2C1B in an amp without damaging or harming something?
Asked by Anonymous on June 18th, 2021.
Absolutely. The character in question only refers to the decay length, 2 being medium while 3 indicates a long decay, so the 9AB3C1B will be the exact same specs as the tank currently in your amp, but will provide a longer decay rate.
I have a 1969 Fender Pro Reverb amp. The old reverb pan is pretty tired and short, metallic sounding. I would like to put in a 3 spring tank for more lush, diffuse reverb as opposed to the drippy, bouncy 2 spring thing. Is this the unit I should order?
Asked by Anonymous on June 30th, 2021.
This is an appropriate replacement for a 4AB3C1B tank, that is used in Fender amplifiers from that era, so this should work. You will want to verify that your amp currently uses a 4AB3C1B tank, and if it does, this will certainly work as a replacement.
