Who makes reverb units?

I had a Fender RI that sounded great. Sold it after I bought a mint "real" '63 blonde.

Sold the '63 and replaced it with another RI. This one sucks and has dies once. I replaced power tranny but now something is wrong again.

I am ready to move on and

1) Buy another vintage unit
2) Buy a custom made one.

The only option I know is Uncle Spot and it's a long wait. Any other suggestions?

I had a reverberato but I thought the trem was too "pretty" I prefer bias trem.

The reverb was nice though.

Using a VanAmps Sole-Mate right now. Makes my little '52 Tweed Princeton sound like it had an onboard spring reverb on it all along, that's how transparent it is. Great real spring addition. Plus on my '64 Princeton it can switch my Tremolo circuit on and off with its AUX switch, very nifty. Best of both worlds, and a low (but wide) footprint.

I've used a Clark, Uncle Spot, and Vanamps. The Clark is what I have now but I think the Vanamps sounds just as nice. Both of the above units are darker/smoother than the Uncle Spot to my ears. Seem to impart a nice tone when in front of my 5e3. The Uncle Spot did not change the tone at all and the reverb was clear and articulate with a pronounced verb drip on the trail of each note (read Hi-Fi when compared to the other units). In the end I prefer the darker/vintage tone of the Clark and Vanamps unit.

Traynor made a nice one back in the 70's (I think). I believe it was called the TR-1. You might be able to find one used for a decent price since old Traynor stuff is not that expensive.

Another endorsement for the Van Amps Sole Mate. I'm using it, with great results, with my Greer and Clark amps.

Jim at Lil Dawg makes them but I think you have to have one of his amps before he'll make you one.
