I recently got a fender blues junior but think something may be wrong with the reverb tank. The best way I can describe it would be, while playing if you were to strike the strings with the side of your hand and pick, it kinda sounds like a short "bong" like the springs are not moving much or something.

Traditionally reverb should sound like it continues on shortly kinda with a "ghostly" type tone to whatever you played. I hope you understand what I mean or trying to describe.

Anyway, what could this be? and can it be fixed or will I need to look for a replacement or something?


Edit: I should also add that the reverb seems to work when playing anything. Only when you "scrape" the strings does it not continue. It just doesn't seem right, but maybe I am wrong?

Thanks for any answers.

See I wasn't sure if it was supposed to. I never really noticed when I have played other amps which is why I am unsure.

yeah I think most people replace the BJ's reverb tank cause it's so springy

Mine does something similar. I'm either going to have to replace the tank or get a good pedal (I"ll probably replace the tank). I love the amp too much to part with it.
