    What are the options to add a three-knob reverb to a tube amp? I see where Weber has a kit, and I've heard tell of a Kendrick unit though I couldn't locate it on their website. Anyone have experience with this? Cheers,

    Vintone has one. Pricey. That's all I know about them.

    My assessment as well. Might be great, but the price is off the scale. Anyone know the Kendrick unit?

    Jule Amps and Vintone Circuits make the best two units out there.

    I had the Kendrick add-on in a tweed Kendrick 2410 bassman. It sounded really good, but I am pretty sure they no longer offer that unit for sale. I have also owned a Kendrick outboard reverb unit, and to my ears it sounded superior to the add-on deal. Plus, you could use it with any amp you got. It was outstanding in sound and construction. I thought it sounded much better than even the vintage Fender reverb units.

    Uncle Spot makes a great three know outboard reverb unit based on the Fender version but much quieter.

    Well, I already have a very good add-on reverb, truth be told. I'm trying to design a combo amp w/3-knob 'verb that will replace my regular rig (H/C-30 + RV-1) for smaller engagements. Thanks for the suggestions so far...I found another one that may be out of production as well, from SDG? SGD? Something like that. Cheers,

    Rob

    weber makes a kit that you can install into your amp.
