    Specifically to make the reverb sound better. I just got the amp and find that the reverb level has to be up quite a bit to hear the effect and then it's very metallic, poor quality. Are they all this way or do I have a bad one? How does the reverb work--and IC? a DSP embedded in the circuit? Any way to make it sound better?

    I've had one of these for a few years (it was my 1st amp) and it's never seemed that way to me. It's noisy at max, but I don't need that much. It's not the ultimate reverb, but it's not bad.

    You got a bad one it appears . It's solid state but the verb is actual (spring) .
    Never had mine past 5-6 max .

    I've never seen a schematic on one but had mine apart to replace the vol. pot & input jack .

    Cambridge is a different animal ....

    yeah, the reverb in mine is spring too, and mine sounds pretty good considering what it is. maybe replace the tank?

    i actually quite like it--it gets pretty decent voxy tones for very little money. i put a weber alnico blue pup in mine as the stock speaker was a POS.

    i've had mine apart as well....it's all PCB based, so i don't know how much modding is an option.


    cheers,
