    Good day all,

    I have an amp with reverb - is it possible to make the reverb into a vibrato? I don't need the reverb on this unit. Schematic attached in PDF.

    Thanks

    You want to pull all of the circuit related to reverb, then add tremolo to the amp?

    Sure, you could do that. Might be easier to build a new amp, but sure.

    There's no procedure where the reverb actually becomes tremolo with a mod or something. Two totally different circuits that will be integrated into the main amp circuit in two totally different ways.

    I'm curious - in the lower right corner - Designed by: "Gerald Webber Kendrick Amps".

    Gerald's name is WEBER. How does this happen?

    As to your question - sure, you can do that, and then convert your vacuum cleaner into a refrigerator. Anything's possible...

    I have pretty much gutted it aside from the Transformers wiring and filter caps- rewiring pretty much the entire amp from pre-amp through power because I don't think I did it properly from the get go. So I figured while Im doing this maybe rewire the reverb circuit to a vibrato circuit.

    And you still trust him? A guy who mispells his own last name and you're building his potentially lethal high-voltage circuit?

    I for one have seen some of his Youtubes, and I wouldn't let GW fix my toaster.

    DO you mean vibrato? Or tremolo?

    If the latter that's not too hard (Check out sluckey's 1/2 tube design)... if the former, good luck.

    Now that you mentioned reverb into vibrato, I going to try that out on my GT-100. Amp into reverb, then into vibrato pedal. It ought to sound weird.

    Not really sure you can trust a guy who can't catch a typo in his own name!

    What's wrong with your toaster? (Maybe we should start a new thread though.) The problem with mine is, it's a cheap piece of junk.
