The FX loop jack, is it just a single jack on this one? I suspect the cutout contact inside it is dirty or oxidized. Spray some cleaner in it and poke a plug in and out a few times. ANy help?

Reverb JFETs. Look at your schematic, the two JFETs which select which control sets the level are controlled by S and /S. They are opposite each other. The control circuit is by the Footswitch jack on page 1. The test points are called out, when one is at -10v, the other is at 0 volts. So you have a 1 meg resistor from each of those to each gate, and since the gates are shorted together. You wind up with 2 meg between S and /S. The gates are in th middle. SO when one is at -10, the other is at 0, ao the gates are in the middle at 5. Switch the other way, and the other end is no -10 and the opposirte end now is 0, so again you have 5. That is why your 9 makes 4.5 all the time. It is acting exactly as we would expect with those two gates shorted together.
