Thanks folks I'll contact them directly to see if they can help. I expected a bit of a volume drop but not this much.

I finally finished my build after collecting the components over a few years. I'm a bedroom picker who plays mostly instro, surf, & rockabilly.
When I started, my main goal was to have a copy of the Fender reverb unit since I couldn't afford to buy one. With the Surfybear kits I could buy what I needed one piece at a time (like Johnny Cash built his Cadillac).
With that in mind, and very little experience with any of the skills involved, I chose to combine the reverb and tremelo kits. I liked the idea of having 1 powered unit that did both. I briefly considered adding the guts from a delay pedal but realized that was too much to bite off.
I built a cabinet with the plans on this site and found some inexpensive tweed pattern tolex and grill cloth on Amazon to get a decent imitation of what I really wanted. I took the Fender logo off of a small bass amp.
In the end I'm very happy with the results. I never played a Fender unit but this sounds just like I think it should.
My thanks to everyone who posts on this site such great information.

That is absolutely great. You’ve combined two very useful effects into one classic package.
