Hey ahmo, thanks for coming on here and sharing your knowledge.
I'm in the process of recapping my s62. I replaced the rectifier because I wasn't sure if it was the toxic selenium type. I now find the voltages are about 30v over what the schematic says they should be, so I'm going to increase R38.

Anyway it's basically working fine, except for a couple of issues - I wonder if you have any insight?

- Echo repeats are very 'thin', no low frequencies. Is this symptom of old tape? (I haven't replaced the loop yet).

- The leftmost of the 3 controls does nothing (can't recall the name of it, reverb something).
