I have the Dano Corned Beef, which I'm told is more of a delay pedal, and the DanEcho, which has some reverby sounds though it's a delay pedal. I paid $45 total for both of them. Since I don't use much reverb, they work well for me.

I really like my "Corned Beef". I use it with my Baritone Ukulele through a Fender Bassman practice amp I upgraded with a 10" speaker. The rig sounds like Don Ho covering Steppenwolf.

If you ever find one, the Wavebox Triton is the best reverb/delay I've ever used. These are made in Brazil and are hard to find in the states. Its a dual effect pedal.

I am looking for one of those external Fender reverb units. To my ear, that tone just can't be touched by any pedal, bar none. Listen to some Kid Ramos or Junior Watson and you'll hear what I'm talking about.

I jammed with Percy The Wonder Ant from the Michael Messer forum a little while back in a 6th form girls changing room. Due to a gross administrative error, the 16 year olds weren't in evidence, but it was marginally made up for by the echo. But only marginally. :(

i think you are better off getting used to using no reverb.reverb is an effect,whoo needs them?i don't have anything against guys who use effects,as long as they're not after me :) i never use reverb,except for the natural reverb of the room.

Ah yeah but I can think of some other needs for $700+ beans.

I understand but there are some situations that require some forms of it. Thats why I posed the question in the first place to see what others were happy with.
Some amps reverb units suck. Since I'm in the process of finishing up a bassman, hence no reverb. When i get it done suppose I'll make a decision.

whereas i do not use reverb,i was just trying to be funny.i think the best reverb units are premier,then fender.danelectro amps from the 60's have great reverb,i collect them.however i don't think they made a seperate reverb unit.if you have the skills to make a bassman,perhaps you could make a reverb unit.

good luck!!!

If you're referring to whether or not Fender made a freestanding reverb tank, the answer is "yes". I have a harper acquaintance who uses one that he got from his dad. I haven't seen very many of them, but I've seen that one.

Like anything else they make reissue's today, like I said $750.00 though.

A similar poll on the vintage amp/plexi board about 65% of the guys prefered them.
But these are the same guys that spend big bucks on 61-62 blonde bassmans.

yes i realise that fender makes a stand alone reverb unit,i was sugesting it as the second best after premier.

i was reffering to vintage dano.they have great reverb,but i don't know if vintage dano made stand alone reverb.

again,i think one who could make their own bassman could make their own reverb unit.
