Bob, fascinating stuff! It's great having this sort of "first-hand" (biased though it may be :) )knowledge to draw on....thank you!!
: 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
: the 4400.
: 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?
