Well, I may be a little biased, but, the TAPCO 4400
reverb was based on the 6000R reverb circuits and
I believe this is one of the best sounding spring
reverbs around. At TAPCO, we took great care
in making the reverbs sound good. Greg Mackie
had us "shim" the Hammond reverb tank pickups
when they needed it so the ends didn't twang on
the coil laminations etc... Also, Rodger Rosenbaum
designed a great balanced driver and EQ circuit,
(drive and pickup EQ) so we would get the best sound we
could from the reverb tank. I remember there was
a slight difference between the 6000R and 4400
circuit but I can't remember exactly what it was.
Basically the same although I seem to remember the
6000R was slightly better sounding reverb than
If I get the service manuals up here, then we will see.
The 4400, of course, had the separate 4 channel graphic
EQ and the reverb tail switch. Did anyone else
have one of those switches where it cut out the
direct signal and the reverb drive signal and just
left the tail so you could adjust it better?
