Use a cable from the second jack of that same channel to a reverb/ delay unit of your choice.
Come back out of the effect into the second, bright, channel of your amp.

This allows several cool things to happen:

-You can blend WET and DRY signals using the channel volume controls. This makes your amp have a bigger presence in the aural soundstage of the listener.
The dry signal is an "advancing" sound, keeping your guitar at the "front", whilst the Wet (echo,reverb) signal fills the periphery, creating an illusion of space . By blending wet and dry you will never fade into the back of a band's sound.
- Since you are BLENDNG the sounds, cheesier (and less expensive) delay/ reverb units can be used, and used harder, since they will be mixed with a warm dry sound. I've found that by using this technique I got great overall sounds from the amp, using effects which I did not like by themselves when they were
simply run inline with the guitar to a single channel.

I've had great results with the Alesis Microverb and Microverb II using this technique.

Season's best,
DRU

Anyway, I got the wall wart, and I'm enjoying its sounds. I haven't tried it out yet, though. I keep it on the spring setting about 1/4 of the way up. YMMV.

Probably not as warm and lush as the real deal, but then it only costs a fraction of a real Fender reverb. Plus it's a lot smaller/lighter to carry around.

Bit-Mo offers a kit to turn a Epi Valve Jr. into a tube driven reverb unit. Looks interesting. probably a lot cheaper than $750

I wouldn't mind given one of those a try. Could be fun.

For all you Holy Grail users out there;

Do you get a NOTICABLE volume drop when the grail is engaged? I do, and I wonder if this is normal. thx.


John, I haven't heard that but I don't have one either.
I have heard on another board from more than one source that they are a tone sucker when off.

I worked but needed some new pots & needs new caps. With help of someone that has the technical expetise and the equipment,(lifelong friend) we are making some mods to it at the same time, mostly to the bass channel thats not guitar friendly anyhow. Hopefully we will "tweed" out that channel and while we are at it, I brought the head enclosure home and am stripping that, re-doing it in tweed to match the cab I got for it with a raised leather handle & oxblood grille cloth to match the head also.

Through this project I'm learning and already thinking about building an amp kit, this is getting highly addictive. But I will wait-n-see how this comes out, If its the Tone Monster I'm hoping maybe I'll be done.
I have learned a bunch doing all the research, actually building the stand alone reverb unit would be easier than most amp kits. :mrgreen:
I'll post a full photo layout of the amp process when its done.
