Classic gear from yesteryear; vintage audio standing the test of time.

Reverb & tremolo/vibrato

Yeah, gonna have to check continuity of this part of circuit, for sure. I've actually had jumper cables be bad. And the soldering inside the tanks go bad.

But, hooked to that Fender Reverb Unit... crazy. That unit is worth its weight in gold. No other amp (with onboard reverb) has that kind of range in tone and depth.

The Gibson's tremolo is as good as any amp I've heard. As good as the famous Vibro-Champ. It's a bias waggle on the output tubes. Not an opto-bug circuit. So, no ticking problems. But, at max --- it waggles the hum, with volume at zero. Crazy!
