    I have the same reverb unit and it sounds great. You can use it as a footswitchable boost as well which is really cool. Very expensive, selling used for around $1000.- $1200.

    :cool:

    are they meant to be used in the loop or in front of an amp? have you tried the TV-1 as well as the reverb? why are they soooo ugly too. i love the way the rest of the matchless look.

    Yep........it's kinda big and industrial looking. Sounds killer though plus the looks of it will grow on you. I've never tried a tremelo unit but I did own a Hurricane 15 for awhile and I liked the trem on it. It's only money!

    :cool:

    Actually,that's a promo shot of Carlos showing off his new Spring line of fashion.
    Carlos has been quoted as saying,
    "In 6 months everyone will be wearing it!"

    The effect clothes have on great tone cannot be underestimated.

    The RV-1 is the 'verb.They also made a killer outboard tremolo-vibrato the TV-1.

    I hope Matchless will consider re-issuing them at some point!

    I'm sure they'd build you a one-off if you asked. Phil has been there for the duration and knows all. :)
