I know that this isn’t a pedal, but the quality of effect from this unit.. is pretty awesome. I’m talking about the Fender Vintage Reissue ’63 Reverb unit. This is a a all tube (6V6, 12AX7 and 12AT7) reverb head. It’s built to do one thing.. and one thing very well… reverb. There is a on/off footswitch available, and creates instant retro-surf-twang reverb. I’ve heard about these for years, but today I saw some sound clips.. and this thing sounds great.
Here is the official description of the unit:
The ’63 Fender Reverb is a replica of the original 1963 Fender tube reverb standalone unit. Features a solid steel welded chassis and all-tube circuitry. Includes dwell, mix, and tune control. Fender ’63 Reverb is brown with tan grille cloth.
