    Have just recieved a used masonette.Sounds great,anyone using reverb pedal on these or delay?Like to kick a little wetness on my leads.My Boss rv-5 and the germino don't seem to like each other.
    :confused: Thanks Steve

    Can't help you with that one. I have a Masonette and use pedals but don't use any reverb or delay types. I used to have a Maxon AD-80 that worked well with a lot of amps.

    Steve,

    Neither can I as I don't use any "wet" effects. This is a first for me!!!

    Loving it so far,

    Fulltone Tube Tape Echo (TTE). Killer effect with every amp I've tried it with.

    Not exactly pedalboard friendly is it?

    I'd love to try one of those though.

    When I had a Masonette, I used my DLS echotap delay- worked great together!

    This is the pedalboard I used with the Masonette:

    Not a fan of reverb, but I did use a Analogman modded Boss DD-5... nice tap tempo feature. I know... sorry for the sloppy board....

    put an at7 in the phase inverter and try your pedal again.

    Hey Steve,
    That Masonette is a 4 input amp, yes?

    On my JTM45 style head, I have an A/B/Y switcher that, on "A", sends my direct signal to the Brilliant channel, and on "B", goes through a delay first and then on to the Normal channel. This keeps my tone as pristine as possible and I can dial in some wetness on the other side. I have found with the 4 input Marshall style amps, I like the tone better when I do not jumper the channels together.

    M.E.

    yes change the 12ax7 that is closest to the power tubes to a 12at7. This will give you a bit more headroom which is what you most likely need.
