FET reverb idea
« on: September 12, 2013, 07:54:50 AM »
Not sure if this has been posted already but I came across a st at Offsetguitars that a dude made a FET version of the Fender 6G15. Here is the info and build doc.

Thats really cool.

Especially as I have a spare spring reverb tank knocking around  :)

I might put a PCB layout together for it.

thats what I was thinking also... might be a fun project without messing with tubes and high voltage. I don't think I'm ready for that yet. lol

I wonder if I could apply a belton reverb to that as well…

As good as the belton sounds... nothing beats real spring reverb IMO.

Plus Accutronics spring tanks are quite readily available (and quite cheap).

Ah yes, but can you get one in a 125B?

Nope... but that all adds to the fun  ;)

Do you mind if the tank hangs out of the side?

In that case, the 1590a enclosure is going to have to be much taller.

Well, apparently accutronics will have to invent their new mini folded spring reverb tank then.

You could also use a tesseract to create a break in the space time continuum and then create a larger space inside the 1590a. That way, you can have as long a spring as you want…

Wait. That's getting a little ridiculous. You only need a medium spring.
