Reverb for tweed clone ?

    Looking for recommendations for a reverb pedal to give a Fender spring reverb sound to a tweed clone. Should be simple, realistic, and not sound overly processed (if that makes sense)... just a simple spring reverb simulator in pedal form.

    I use a Boss '63 Fender Reverb into my amps without reverb, including my 5E3 clone

    It's a bit pricey, but I love the Strymon Flint; it has tremolo also... I didn't care for the Boss Reverb 63 pedal, and have never tried the MXR Reverb, or the Hall of Fame, which is quite popular.

    I don't own it but it is on my wish list. Real spring reverb: Carl Martin Heardroom. Here is a demo by Pete Thorn:

    Do you have the amp yet? Wait until you do. I have no need for reverb with a tweed circuit amp. :D

    Not sure what Fezz will say and definitely not speaking for him, but to me reverb is best used more as an effect for surf style music. Many people however use it to make an amp sound bigger or less boxy (Blues Jr) and the tweed circuits do not tend to suffer from this IME. I always prefer a delay to give my tone tome space and only use verb for surf rock stuff. I think too many folks “hide” behind reverb to make thief sound “bigger”

    Thanks, that's interesting. I usually use a little bit of plate reverb OR some slapback delay.

    in my little experience, the tweed circuit has so much presence and resonance that it makes the room feel bigger and warmer. i use a small touch of delay and that's it... but i'm not a dripping wet reverb kind of person to begin with...

    I use the reverb into my 5E3 clone for surf tunes. The amp is really good without it.

    There's a harmonically rich thing that happens with tweeds.

    It sounds great. Does this apply to all tweed amps? I've bben eyeing the Champ schematics for when I'm done with the Madamp build.

    Not yet. I have a bid in on a Vibrolux clone and I am chatting with two companies to build either a Vibrolux clone or a Tremolux clone. I decided the Super, as much as I REALLY want one, is more than I can use. I don't think I'd be able to open her up and allow her to stretch her lengthy legs.
    Since I started using reverb again, I'm not sure I can quit cold turkey. :D:D:D
