My reverb sounds far away and is not as loud as my “blackface” vintage amp reverb…
The Fargen reverb circuit is much more of a subtle ambiance rather than a “surf” style reverb. Think of the Fargen reverb in comparison to a high-end studio reverb.
Can I use both 6V6′s and 6L6′s in by Blackbird 20 or Blackbird 40?
No. Each amp was designed with a specific output transformer thus the Blackbird 20 uses only 6V6 power tubes and the Blackbird 40 uses only 6L6 power tubes.
