SOLD: Fender 6G15 Stand Alone Reverb

Post by MikeC »

You want drip? No pedal compares to this classic stand alone reverb unit.

Hand wired, hand built by me, this is not a kit. The dovetailed pine cabinet in amber tweed is by BG.
The back panel is shielded for noise reduction. Foot pedal included.
This is a clone of Fender's 6G15 stand alone reverb unit. I have utilised 2 improvements from the current production 6G15 which you need.
1/. Isolated Ground Bus so no earth loop hum when plugged in to another amp or device connected to earth.
2/. Full wave bridge rectifier (the originals have a half wave).


Valve complement:-
NOS Philips 12AT7
Brand new TAD 7025 WA
NOS 6K6GT

Price is $1250.00. This is my cost for components as I build these amps/effects as a hobby and for the tonal experience.

Bit too luxurious for me, but what does it sound like, Mike? Would love to hear it!

It sounds fantastic. From googling and listening I discovered what "drip" is!

They do sound fantastic. I played through one once. I secretly wanted to hear if you were as good a player as an amp builder. If you were, I'd have to cut all ties, just for the sake of my own ego.

Anyway, here's a nice clip.

Ha, I'm an OK guitar player and pretty good sometimes when I practice (as I used to when with the band). Yes, nice clip - it sounds just like that if not slightly better!

I bet!

Nothing competes with real life, eh?

In a similar vein, the day I heard a guitar through a real Leslie was the day I sold my rotary pedal.

Now THAT is a difficult sound to emulate.

I recently met a guy that's in a blues band (he sings AND plays lead - coont!). I watched/listened to them playing a cover of SRV's Cold Shot and he uses a Fender Vibroverb thru a guitar leslie. Wow - inspired me to build the Vibroverb!

No - will be a '64 combo with a 15" speaker. I've already tee'd BG up for the cab!
