    Got a new toy today, Epiphone 50s Les Paul Standard Gold Top. The Epiphone is surprisingly good with a nice chunky neck... it sounds great with the Marshall,

    bought some new preamp tubes to try, got a couple of JJ ECC83MG to use in V1 and V2 and replaced the Chinese tubes in V3 & V4 with JJ ECC83S, kind of subtle but my initial responce was it sounds clearer and a touch more open. I'm pretty much using just OD1 with the gain between 10-12:00 thats plenty for me these days. But glad I got the ECC83MGs they sound sweet in the DSL40CR.

    Congrates. I had an Epi and you have to be picky when shopping Gibson replacements to get one better.

    Not really an Issue but every once in a while I dont have Reverb, if I shut the amp off and turn it back on its back. Anyone else have this happen? I havent pulled the chassis yet Im thinking maybe a loose connector.

    Just by chance, when this happens have you unplugged the guitar cable from the input jack when it was on? That's the only time I've had my reverb dissappear on my DSL1 - different amp but similar if not the same DFX unit. And turning it off and on brought the reverb back same as for you.

    no the cable was in place, i did pull the chassis and checked all connections and they were all fine as well as the Digital board. I do use the 6 Button ft switch, it hasn't happened a lot but it does bother me a little.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with my amp but rather a quirk in the design. I don't know but I suspect the DFX IC has the capability to turn the reverb on and off like the JVM's IC can, but that they didn't provide footswitch capability to use that function in the DSL. I think the DSL DFX IC can pick up a voltage ripple from somewhere, in my case from when the input jack ground switch closed when I removed the plug, and interpreted that as the signal to turn the reverb off. The default setting must be on which is why it came back on after turning it on and off. That's just my theory based on speculation. Mine hasn't dissappeared again since I've been careful not to unplug the input jack when it's on.

    Were both reverbs turned up?
    Another switching error could be switching reverb, but not channel, to a reverb that is turned down.
    Never heard of this but maybe a possibility.
    I never use the onboard 40CR verbs so wouldn't notice reverb errors.
