Univox Pro Verb U3R Spring Reverb Unit in Van Nuys CA for $75

I am a fan of Solid State Spring Reverb - the way I figure it, if you are playing through a tube amp and the Reverb is going in the front it really doesn't make a difference if it is tube or not (a Fender Twin's tube driven reverb runs off the phase inverter so it is after the pre-amp and before the output transformer).

These Univox Pro Verbs were made in Japan in the late 60's/early 70's and they have two input channels with seperate levels and a depth control. They sound good until they get too noisy and this one is apparently still quiet so you are in luck.

Surf purists will cringe but I have a little Teisco made solid state spring reverb that I love because it is very trashy and garage rock sounding - similar to the Cardboard Danelectro units they put in the Silvertone 1484's. It is a great little unit and it was very cheap.

Personally, the best Reverb I ever heard was an Orban rack mount spring unit and it was solid state. Tube units are great if you are trying to replicate Vintage Surf Guitar sounds but these other units can be very useful for a variety of tones as well. Purists will just have to cringe.

  1. I got a unbranded "Reverbation" box with only "Japan" stamped into the inside.
    It's identical to the one pictured in all other respects. The sound is not reverbe any more. A schematic and a few BC108s and new caps may help. Any tips please send to terrysface123@gmail.com. Cheers Terry

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
