Premium recap kits for your Fender Super Reverb, Pro Reverb or Bandmaster Reverb amplifier
This listing is for a full replacement set of premium electrolytic capacitors for your Fender Super Reverb, Pro Reverb or Bandmaster Reverb amplifier.
Complete instructions with diagrams & illustrations are included!!
It is standard procedure for amp techs to replace the electrolytic capacitors in an amp every ten years or so. These caps perform two duties. The filter caps literally filter the high voltage used by your amplifier. Good fresh filter caps greatly reduce hum and background noise, & keep your bottom end response tight. The electrolytic bypass caps in the preamp determine the operating & tonal characteristics of the preamp tubes. These caps wear out & drift over time. If left unused, these caps can dry up & malfunction rather quickly. This can cause serious damage to your amplifier.
Filter Caps for the power supply are German made F&T caps (Fischer & Tausche - F&T have been making premium caps since the 40's). I've recently discovered that - as far as power filters go - these caps are electronically superior to the popular Sprague Atoms (my old favorites, and still great caps). They have more accurate capacitance readings and significantly lower ESR (equivalent series resistance). Low ESR facilitates a more efficient & accurate circuit, enabling better tone. As power filters, F&Ts perform BEAUTIFULLY in vintage Fenders.
Cathode bypass caps are all Sprague Atoms, made in the USA. These little guys do a great job in the preamp, allowing full, musical tone capability for your preamp tubes. The bias capacitor is also a Sprague Atom.
This kit includes:
Diagrams & complete instructions for recapping your amp!!
2 x 100uf/350v F&T electrolytic capacitors
3 x 22uf/500v F&T electrolytic capacitors
7 x 25uf/25v Sprague Atom electrolytic capacitors
1 x 25uf/50v Sprague Atom electrolytic capacitor*
*The 25uf/50v cap is the blackface bias circuit value; for blackface amps & silverface amps with the blackface mod. A 100uf/100v silverface replacement is available upon request. If you have a true, unmodified silverface circuit, you will need a second 100uf/100v bias cap. Please make a note of this at checkout and DO NOT PAY! I will send a revised invoice with the second bias cap included for an additional $3.50. You will then receive 2 x F&T 100uf/100v bias caps.
THIS KIT IS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR 35-45 watt Fender Super Reverb, Pro Reverb & Bandmaster Reverb amplifiers. Not compatible with the 70W ultralinear models. UL recap kits are available on my website VintageFenderAmpRepair.com
PLEASE SPECIFY WHICH AMP YOU ARE RECAPPING SO I CAN SEND YOU THR CORRECT LAYOUT DIAGRAM WITH YOUR INSTRUCTIONS!!

Blackface mod kits:
Complete kits for full blackface conversion of your silverface Fender amp. Includes all necessary parts, diagrams & detailed instructions.
Optimize your power tube performance with matched resistor sets:
The resistors on the power tubes of vintage Fender amps take some serious abuse. They handle a lot of juice and are subject to further physical abuse from the rising heat of the power tubes. This causes them to burn & drift over time.
It is important to match the resistors on your power tubes if you want the best tone possible. This is especially important if you shell out the big bucks for matched sets of power tubes or vintage NOS matched sets. What’s the point of matched tubes if they are all being fed different operating voltages?
Greatly enhance your tone with signal capacitor upgrade kits:
If you are looking to get the most out of your silverface Fender, it’s a good idea to upgrade the coupling (signal) caps throughout the circuit. Doing this will greatly enhance the clarity, richness & sustain of your amp.
