Reverb Sucks!


SoCalRat

Recommended Posts

Hey All, New here to the site. I was wondering if some one could tell me how to remove the reverb unit from my socal 50?

I dont like reverb and it does not turn all the way off if i turn it all the way down. I hear that you can only turn it off w/ the footswitch. I only use channel 2 so I have no need for the switch. Can I just unplug the RCA cable and leave it at that or do I need to remove the tubes as well?

Thanks,

S.C.R.

You could always replace the reverb with a baseball bat :)

This is a good question for M-Theory - the tank puts a resistive load on the output transformer (I think) so it may damage the OT if you just pull it out and leave it that way unless you put a dummy load on it. Why not use the foot switch to turn it off, then remove the switch?

I dont have the footswitch. I didn't THINK i needed it so it was an extra 40 bucks I didn't need to spend.:- Even if you turn it off with the switch, as soon as you unplug, it turns back on. Maybe guitar center has a generic one for a few bucks that will do the job.
