Nocturne F-Bomb ‘63 Arrives…

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:

Snorre, did you recently score a VibroKing? Do they have a 6gi5 on board? . If so be great to hear your thoughts/ a comparison.

The first Vibrokings had an EL84 reverb driver - I had one and it ran the EL84 very hot, so needed replacing quite often. Then they changed to a 6V6, probably because the 6V6 is more readily available than a 6K6. I believe the 6V6 version was more reliable.

In the end I would plug into the amp at the back - the FX loop IN - because the reverb was so noisy. Plugging in at the back just bypasses the reverb altogether on a VK. And after that I sold it and bought the then-new Super Reverb RI which had a much better reverb anyway.

I suspect Tavo's outboard reverb will sound a lot better than my VK's reverb ever did.

Thanks , seems like such a good idea to have a 6g15 style verb onboard. the results sound a lil disapointing

That's a great sounding verb!
