Permalink How long should decay be on longest setting for Fender Reverb Unit Reissue?

New Topic
Page 1 of 1

So I got a fender reissue reverb unit. When I got it, the lock down had no effect on the reverb. So I opened it up and saw that the foam was just free and bouncing around. To reattach it, I used some two way tape that had a tiny bit of thickness to it. Now the reverb lock definitely works. No sound. But when I undo the lock, I get about 1.5 - 2.5 seconds of decay, max. With settings dimed. Is this normal? Or is it supposed to be really long? I've never owned one before, and I may be used to digital delays with endless decays. I'm just wanting to make sure the foam isn't now too high, and hindering the operation by stopping springs a little early.

I know this probably won't help, but I "accidentally" took the foam off of my unit over a year ago. My tank sounds great with my vintage tubes and a MIK pan. Anyway, can you record something and play it for us? Is your unit all stock or has it been modified?

You don't want too long a delay with surf music, 1.5 sounds right I think. But just listen to some surf music and see if your tank comes close.

+1 to what Danny said. An outboard reverb unit is not a delay/echo.
