I Haven't had much action around these parts lately, and the channel switching in this bad boy started acting up, so let's get the trace show running.
I haven't seen schematics for these elsewhere :horsey:

First up: Board A - the preamp board.






Board B contains the power amp and tube driven effects loop. I'll take photos of it as soon as I finish tracing board A.

I think the Rev Jr is the krankenstein with a fixed tone stack and a BMP tone control after that?
Here's a schem that might be a good place to start comparing

Looks like they have quite a bit in common, though it seems this PCB accomodates circuitry to switch between a solid state or tube buffered effects loop instead of multiple master volumes ;)
Here's the work in progress. It's linking to my dropbox, so this will always be the latest revision.

The preamp board is pretty much done - this was a messy bugger to trace out. When comparing it to the Mesa and Soldano amps I've otherwise worked on, even the japanese SP-77 knockoff sports a nicer PCB layout :lol:
