fixed the reverb was a bit of a bitch to access but as soon as i pulled it out i saw the bugger that was causing the problem. one of the four little springs that holds the main springs in place fell out of its socket so the main springs were just resting on the side of the tank. luckily the little spring wasn't lost and still in there, so i just resocketted it and presto!
now to get this smoke smell out... i swear i'll get cancer just from this amp
^ i'm sure you'd be able to score one for a decent price.
just took a ton of rubbing alcohol to the whole outside and back of the inside of the amp. febreezed the grill. you have no idea how many used papertowels and old rag socks i have in my trash absolutely covered in soot and ****************. hopefully this helps, leaving it overnight in my bathroom with the fan and exhaust on to air out some more. should be better now that the amp isn't in the smokey apartment too.
lastly my dad has a nice ozone air freshener thing, which i've read eliminates the odor. i'll have to borrow that and let it ozone for a few days in my bathroom again what a headache. but well worth it lovely amp indeed
if that doesn't work i've read theres some kind of ozone spray that does this well too. i guess the very insides are still covered in soot and tar and ****************, so hopefully tomorrow i'll be able to open it all up, clean out the pots with deoxit, and clean up all the gunk on the insides. then let it ozone away.
btw, anyone know where i could find a knob for this amp? its missing one **************** might as well buy a whole new set so that i can just throw out these tobacco'd out ones. i can't imagine what this poor fellows LUNGS must be looking like and i'm not even an anti-smoker!
One significant difference of the JC-77 from the JC-120 is there is no Vibrato on the JC-77. Instead it lets you choose from fixed or manual Chorus. This is also true for the JC-120 head, the JC-90 and the JC-55.
