Van Amps Sole-Mate
Happy owner of a Marshall JTM45 (no reverb and no tremolo standard), I started looking for a high quality reverb.
After switching to digital (nova system), I returned all analog. bah ... yes
So I found this beautiful object used on our favorite site. He was in perfect working condition, if not nine.
Colored tweed, sole mate has two knobs, one input & output jack, an additional outlet jack to replace a switch (no use to me), and finally an entry for a 12 volt transformer.
Accuracy: this pedal is powered by AC ... exit the regulated supply power Voodoolab 2 + (it will consider the model in addition to pedal power AC). Not super happy, so I mounted a power strip under my pedalboard and I've plugged the original transformer. it works fine.


Easy to use, both controls are clear and precise.
Two options for disposal:
- On your amp: more secure, but not operable at the foot (unless you have very large feet and / or to be super flexible). The carrying handle of the amp destabilizes some reverb. possibly provide rubber feet above (detail). otherwise place it on the HP for those who have a body double.
- The ground on your pedalboard: the simplest solution, but instead of consuming. sole mate is the biggest effect that I have. However, Van Amps has planned a little stand to put on top allowing to superimpose effects pedals. m2 are the ones in Paris, then I plan to remove my pedal tuner and replace it with a mini-tuner mounted on the head of my guitar. everything is good to take.
Last tip is a spring reverb, so avoid nuisance shocks with your feet if you move your pedalboard ... otherwise guaranteed sound effect for the audience! so try to move your amp with reverb turned fully ... it's very funny and usually you do that once.
I use it on the front (no loop on my JTM45)


Excellent sound, this is beyond my expectations.
Needless to write a poem, that's what I used best in reverb.
I prefer it to that of my nova system, we find a great vintage sound and that's what I wanted. without cracking at 600 euros fender. Less breath than my fender princeton reverb reissue
Guaranteed heat


I love this sound and I willingly accept all the constraints that I have quoted above (which are more user board). Good stuff, excellent build quality. This is a good investment.
I am delighted and I would do this choice.

Spring Reverb


2 buttons
one to assay the effect
another for depth.
Terribly complicated, (I have not my BAC and I'll have three months to go around ..)
More seriously when it sounds, there is not need more settings ..


Ben is a reverb What ..


I recently purchased because I was looking for a good
spring reverb on my amp.
In view of its original quality on my laney, it would have in fact been more honest not to put all but hey ..
Carefully avoiding char fenderien to 600 euros for obvious reasons of budget (is not messing around anyway) and size,
I took my pilgrim's staff and spent sleepless nights moult on youtube a video of me typing demo often rotten, sometimes very convincing and always subjective chance ...
I inquired (not long) on ​​the simulation genre fender bosses, who have run away quickly:
I'm too old to imitate anyone else who is more with hardware,
Finally, I tell my life ..

I seriously looked at the settings "spring" that offer
most digital reverbs without once being convinced, even on very popular products (holy grail, etc. ..)

Finally, I looked carefully REAL spring reverbs
left me confused with effect splash-boing boing ..

The king seems more spring being designed to receive slaps
that to make music, demeter reverbulator the Little Lanilei (I do not know how they manage to sell it with the samples they provide for that matter)
and then bam:
The van amps.
The slap.
I bought it hoping that reality is equal to the samples ...
And yeah:

It's warm, precise, and fabulously musical ..

A black dot:
The loop of my amp (Laney Lionheart) is parallel and there in the manufacture of a van-amp circuit that is part of the phase out ..
No bowl 2 create a conflict that makes it unusable in the other one
(Reverb in loop)
9 times out of 10 loops of amplifiers are in series and then there are no problems.
Edit made to a repairer.
It cost me 60 euros but it works nickel.
OK, all loved back but I did not see me without this réberbe
after trying on the front.
The repairman has sent an email to Van amps that interested in his manip
will be buying the patent to correct that.
Espéront that prospective buyers can take advantage of this benefit ..

(Send your donations to wizub, audiaufan ... etc)

Van Amps Sole-Mate
Reverberation spring with rglage of intensity and length (dwell), an inlet, an outlet, a switch to start an auxiliary jack for controlling a switch to another pdalier the other as a vibrato effect on a Fender amp. A transformer 12 volts AC is supplied with the pedal.


Is it still necessary to explain how a rgler rverb?


Nowadays most amplifiers have rverbs quite poor, others are dpourvus such as plexi Marshall. The Solemate is to smile again. The sound is warm, generous, beautiful reverb and a great claret. We find the sound of that equipment FIRst rverbs old Twin.


Try some length at a friend who has a nice collection of guitars, amps and effects, I won t rverb this spring that is with the old Fender, I better understood today. Note that there DIFFERENT finishes (19 including tweed) and can also choose from the same manufacturer Reverbamate which owns two outlets ...
