    Some stand alone reverb unit ideas...

    Hey! I was hoping to get a nudge in the right direction in terms of what is out there as far as reverb circuits. Anything cool, uncommon, and very effective? I would really love to based it off a Reverb design that gives the most flexibility of color, using common tube types of course. Vintage ampeg reverb design is really intriguing to me, and I wonder if it has the potential to be brought to another level.

    Iím not sure how it would be done, but something I would like to incorporate is reverb gain. Iíve heard reverb units that offer the output to be slammed enough to provide a very effective.. boost? Can you even call it that? So in theory, it would be great to have something like this as a guitar preamp as well, and get some desirable saturation of the dry signal and maybe some ugly nasty tonal options when at maximum. Wondering where in a Reverb circuit you would put a control like this, and how it can be achieved. Thanks!

    There is a Weber kit 5G15 (expensive) based entirely upon the Fender 6G15 Standalone Reverb

    There is a thread here on current mode drive of Reverb Pans using a Pentode driver.
    Might be worth a look.

    and
    A "tremoverb" with a Belton Reverb Brick rather than a spring pan.
