  • just realized the vibroking amp is not what i thought it was....

    it has a solid state rectifier [thought it was tube, not sure if its a big tone difference though] and the big one, the footswitch is tremolo/fat NOT reverb... why the **************** you put a fender 63 tube reverb in an amp and not allow on/off fender!

     

     

    so i guess I am looking at other Fender 6L6 tube amps with teremolo and tube driven spring reverb  on a footswitch and 10s speakers... 

    so super reverb and some old heads I guess, right?

    Tube amps above 40 watts are generally solid state rectified.

      Super reverb has a tube rectifier though

      Turning the reverb off is good so it can be turned back on

        During the fast parts?

        Get a bassman head and a tube reverb unit. No amp except the vibroking has that crazy awesome tube reverb circuit.

          SS rectifier more or less means it can have a cleaner/more defined sound. Tube rectifiers sag a lot more easily and are often a little darker as well due to the fact that a tube rectifier cannot run the rails on the amp at as high of a voltage as a well-done SS rectifier. I like both but usually use SS rectifiers nowadays (or use a yellow jacket converter in a tube rectifier socket). It's not something that's in the signal path, anyway. It's part of the power supply. What it does is take AC and turn it into DC.

        The original standalone reverb doesn't have on/off switch either. Blasphemy!

          How difficult is it to mod it for a footswitch?

            Yes, the stand-alone Fender Reverb 6G15 does indeed have a foot switch jack, it's in the back underside of the chassis. But, why, oh, why, would one turn it off? Reverb is the KY of effects.
