    After convincing myself that 200 watts was a bit more than I needed, I've decided to power down a bit.

    Now the search for a good reverb pedal begins :)

    Very Nice. I was going to ask why you were selling your 200 in the other thread but now I see. FWIW I am loving the Strymon Big Sky.

    These amps are completely unknown to me. Please teach me.

    I found the TC Hall of Fame to be an affordable starting point. Lucious, clean, lot's parameter control and it's plate verb is almost of slapback quality

    Gladly! This here is 4 pounds of state-of-the-art class D solid state amplification. 100 watts max on the Jazz and Surf voicings, 50 watts on all the others. Not bothered by finicky electrical supply. Drives speaker loads between 4 and 16 ohms. Made in the USA, and designed by Pat Quilter (google his name - quite a story!). Excellent tech support too... a few times Mr Quilter himself has answered the questions I've sent to their online info email address.

    I looked at the Strymon, but yikes, that price tag! Maybe a Digitech Polara ?

    I got a vintage style spring reverb pedal for sale.
    Take a look in the for sale section.

    Hey Pmac, I had exactly the same amp. Great sounding little rig with the right speaker. I sold it to buy the 101 Reverb. I made up a cable that has a 1/4" plug at one end and a pair of alligator clips at the other. I carry the rig with me on every gig. One of my old tube amps goes south I'm back up and running with the little Quilter. Saved my bacon three times so far.

    I had a little open back pine cab with an Emi Legend 10" inside. I'd chuck the little head inside and you had a rig about as loud as a Deluxe Reverb that weighed ten lbs.

    I've got a 12" Eminence Texas Heat in an open back pine cab, man, she roars. Ever consider just using the Q as your main amp? I put a Jr Barnyard in front of mine, it's a very tubey sound.

    Yes the prices are high, they also have the Blue Sky smaller less tweaking and cheaper but for me, the big contender was the https://neunaber.net/collections/pedals/products/immerse-mk-ii

    The Big Sky won only because it had an additional option on shimmer I wanted. Been a bit of a steep learning curve though. I think I am getting the hang of it. the stock sounds are good I like to tweak sometimes and this is one thing I want to tweak.

    The HOF seems to get a lot of love here and I think it is only around 150$ US, someone correct me if I am wrong.



    I just wondered, after posting the link, if I picked the right unit this does sound good. I just had to run down and play the Big Sky and it is still killer! I was worried for a minute there.

    That Neunaber looks cool. Can never tell with the you tube vids though.

    I love my tube amps but when its time to say the ol' T model don't cut it no more i won't be heartbroken. I use solid state analog and digital modeler's already and they keep getting better imo.

    The original, mk1, is 199$ but they recently had a sale on them so I would expect another sale at some point but I could be wrong the mk2 is 249. They both sound good but the mk2 has some customer wishes included as I understand it. Youtube can really be hit and miss. I always try to find some clips to listen to elsewhere preferably on their manufacturer's webs site.

    I played a show with an amazing player who used a small Quilter combo amp. Sounded killer.

    I had a Marshall Code25 once, sold it a little over a year ago. Totally regret it, the thing was perfect for recording.

    Congrats! I've had both this one and the 101 Mini Reverb a couple clicks from on their way to me on several occasions.

    My plan would be to mount it in the back of a Nocturne F-bomb sitting in the loop for real live tube-y and spring-y drip and throb, but it would be a significantly more costly solution than reverb and trem pedals of choice (or a Flint) and a fairly big experiment to me w/o having tried either bit in person even w/ the great demos out there...

    I have a Neunaber Expanse + the EXP controller I grabbed from Tony Sims last year and it's quite a cool swiss army pedal setup w/ some pretty great patches available for any of the effects you can load into it and a good deal of tweakability via a USB cable and their app if you're somewhat technically inclined. Tony's got some great demos of it posted up on here some where. I'd guess the Immerse would be very similar (if not exactly the same) as the reverb programs on the Expanse.
