    And it's amazing! Paired with my Gomez El Sonido, the F-Bomb brings the glorious reverb. Well worth the wait for it to be built.

    I've had a Fender '63 Reissue Reverb Unit and it pales in comparison to this magnificent reverb machine. Many thanks to Tavo!

    I'll be working on making a video this weekend to demo and post in this topic. I'm in surf heaven! Here's some pics:

    Very cool! I have one too. One of the first production models I think. Yours has the Norton logo which is cool. I love mine. Congratulations it's the best reverb you can buy

    Looks great !

    Ha - I have a Gomez too - but not an Amp. I got a g-spring several years ago, when they were available and affordable. I'm really happy with it.

    But if we were neihbours, I'd beg you to let me in to have a Reverb-tank showdown. Always curious about good gear :p. Does it do the surf-drip ?

    I encourage all you 6G15 Spring tank heads to get a vintage Gibbs pan. They are the ULTIMATE pan to put in my Fbomb Spring tanks. Not easy to find but worth every penny. I also like the original AMERICAN built Accutronics pan but the new company from offshore has fallen waaay short in recreating what was once made here in the states.. So this is why I use MOD tanks. Its got the best construction and although the delay is longer than the original accutronics.. this can be modified. I was doing this for the surf response but if you are a blues guy, you tend to have it sit back in the mix so when you hit or attack the chord/ note it jumps out nice n wet.
