Kustom Tube 12 practice amp - no reverb !

Post by Davesax1965 » Fri Jun 19, 2009 6:39 am

Hi folks - looks like I'm getting a Kustom Tube 12. It's a hybrid with a 12AX7 - however !! There's no reverb on it. I'm thinking of adding a Danelectro spring reverb pedal .... (you might get the idea that this is "best possible noise for low money) .... just thinking about it, are there any reverb tanks out there which plug through the output of the amp .... if I've explained that correctly ?

I.e. "plug in reverb unit anywhere " ?

Cheers !!!! :wink:

Cheers, Marcus - but - if I was spending that amount on a pedal.... I'd prefer a plug in reverb, to be honest !

I tried a spring thing as I thought they looked cool and was very dissapointed, it souonded pretty awful! There's a digital delay effect behind the reverb to compensate for the small spring, DaveWW has a holy grail and it sounds ten times better.

Roland has a new reverb pedal - don't know if it's in the shops yet.
