Yet another reverb question (tubes)
« on: July 05, 2005, 02:20:32 PM »
in my quest to find something to do this summer while i'm off from school and only working 1 day a week i decided to try and design and build a tube spring reverb unit...i dug through the archives of this board and found some info and i'm working my way through the net trying to dig up what i can right now...i was looking at some fender schematics for their standalone unit from the early 60s (http://www.ampwares.com/ffg/schem/reverb_6g15_schem.gif) and the circuit looks pretty simple...2 preamp stages a driver stage and then another dual triode amplifying a dry signal and a recovery stage from the reverb tank and then a mixer control...after the driver stage it shows a transformer for what i imagine is dropping the impedance to a suitable level for the tank...my question is whether you could substitute a cathode follower to drop the impedance in place of the transformer there.

hope that made some sense and i'm not completely off base heh...thanks
weeee
