    If you wanted a spring reverb would you go for a Fender style tube reverb OR the Vanamps Solemate real spring reverb pedal.

    Trying to decide and do not have the opportunity to try the Vanamps unit. I like the small pedal footprint but have no experience.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Prices have come down quite a bit on the real deal vintage 6G15 tanks - if you want the real thing there really isn't a better time to score one than right now. They seem to be in the $500-$800 range now from what I've seen lately.

    That said, you can find a reissue and with a few tube swaps get 90% of the way to a vintage unit.

    I bought a used soul mate a couple of weeks ago for $150. I absolutely love it. No emulation, just a great spring reverb. I use it both going into the front of a clean jcm800, or the fx loop of my dirty one.
