A little side note on the 'PEC' tone control module.

Interesting reading:

They are available but without a datasheet you can't tell what they include internally.

Interesting how Sprague refers to them as a "Couplate PEC BulPlate Coupler Module ".

Centalab also made them:https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=%20Couplate%20Info&qs=n&form=QBIR&sp=-1&pq=couplate%20info&sc=1-13&cvid=7DA336B3F1BF4308ADE01C1119A853F7&first=1&tsc=ImageBasicHover

I would not think that it's the battery's fault.
More likely it's the dc to dc converter.
Do you have access to a scope to find what frequency the hiss is?

Oh.
But the converter is what is making the pedals hiss?
Not the amp? (with the pedals powered from the converter)

Stupid question: why did you knock down the 12Vdc battery to 9Vdc?

To replace the ic properly the balls on the pcb have to be reflowed.
They make sheets of teflon with the correct spacing holes in them & you simply lay the sheet over the flattened balls apply flux and reflow the them.

What in the heck were they thinking when they chose that IC ?>>>?
Great for a cell phone but a guitar amplifier?
Come on !
Good job midibob!!

The Reverb not working could be a faulty wire or transducer in the receive side of the tank.

The Vibrato working means that the circuit for Chorus works.
What differentiates the two is the switch. (Chorus does not use the variable Depth and Rate)
I would suggest that you check that.

The Vox amp uses the TPA3091 D1 ball grid array ic (cute!).
Midibob chose to use the SSM2305.
The layout that he chose is directly off of the datasheet.

It appears that you may have an Input Jack issue.
If the Mic Input works then the output stage is fine.
The 'daughter board' is meant to resolve an overall 'no output' issue. (blown output ic)

Can you supply a link to that limiter?

Marshall never was one to supply actual service manuals.
Schematic is all you get.

If nothing else shows as shorted after removing the bad PNP transistor, it is ok to power up the amp to check it further.
At this point do not connect a load.
And with one transistor missing, do not run the amp output to full power with a load.

Being that the amp is 'programmable' and the FX jacks are after all of that, it sounds like the problem is in the front end.
