Not sure if this is the right place, but I have a fender "evil twin" and have heard that removing the reverb tank helps the sound out alot. Now I don't use the reverb so how hard is it to remove, how do i do it, and are there any potential problems with this.

Usually the reverb pan is just screwed somewhere inside the cabinet. And it should just have RCA connectors that can be unplugged.

So you can just unscrew this disconnect the cables. Will this cause any problems

I've done it twice. On my Epi SoCal 50 and on a Fender Princeton and there was no trouble.

what do these people who say it "helps the sound out a lot" tell you about how it accomplishes this? I can't imagine a benefit from removing the tank.

It makes the amp lighter so it resonates more. Duuhhh!

Defeating the circuit will certainly increase gain and often makes amps sound better, but pulling the pan out doesn't constitute defeating or removing the circuit. Many times the reverb channel will not work with the pan unplugged.

It won't matter if you remove the tank or just turn the reverb to zero, it'll still sound the same.
Not taking any online orders.

Just turn the mix knob to zero. I love to hear "I heard that...." its never first hand knowledge or second or even third. Its always my cousins - brothers - aunts - best friend read it somewhere. The internet can be a great tool but it is also can make rumor into supposed fact.
