I was just curious to see if anyone here has any experience with one of these. I can probably pick one up used for cheap, and I wanted to hear if there is anything I should check for or avoid altogether with these.
My main use would be for achieving the thick twang style verb of early dub.
Dubious or dubbaliscious?
sorry for the post, just tried my search a couple different ways only to realize this had been brought up as recent as the 27th! Crazy.

Reason: just noticed another thread
the way it colors the signal just running things through it dry is interesting, it sounds like it saturates/overdrives and adds compression. I could see using it on bass tones just to get the thickness it imparts. The reverb will definitely give that dubbed out tone too when taken to the extreme setting. The noise is there when you crank up the wet signal, but I believe with pre and post EQing this will give some great results that sound more authentic than software.
$50 bucks / 2 Uses = Good deal.
Plus, I kind of like the way it looks with the simple layout and orange knobs.
Fashion I guess. As the price of the actual classics go up, people who can no longer afford that stuff then go for the next best thing, til even the not so good stuff is going for a tidy sum.
70's precision basses didn't used to be well regarded, but now they go for a lot because there are fewer 60's ones about, and the ones that are go for silly money.
Seems the same with old AKG dynamic mics at the moment.
