VanAmps Sole-Mate Jr. - Component Reverb System



This analog spring reverb pedal is based on the original Reverbamate circuitry, which has become the reverb standard of choice for the serious guitar player the world over.

The Sole-Mate Jnr differs from the original Reverbamate in that it has a single output and is fully compatible with any guitar amp on the market today, yesterday or in the future. From surf to jazz and everything in-between, no other reverb comes close.

Those who have a one input amp and want the sparkling reverb effect that the original Reverbamate is famous for can now claim that awesome reverb tone for their very own. In addition, the Sole-Mate Jnr sports status indicators for power and effect, and comes in a variety of coverings to complement or match just about any amp. The Sole-Mate's Jnr circuit design negates pickup loading in both the effected and bypass mode.

Our patented “Tru-Out” circuitry assures guitar tone integrity by adhering to the strict parameters of guitar pre amp design.

This is techno babel for “DUDE, my guitar tone is totally awesome with this pedal!” Employs a bipolar fully regulated power supply for increased headroom and low noise operation. The Reverbamate Sole-Mate operates on 120VAC or 220VAC, appropriate adaptor included.

The Sole-Mate Jr is a first of its kind, a spring reverb designed for pedal boards. It's component design allows the user to place just the control head of the system on the pedal board while the actual tank is located remotely, either under or at a short distance from the pedal board. The small head unit is normally attached to the pedal board with hook and loop methods commonly used on today's pedal boards.

The spring tank can also be mounted via this method or with small screws utilizing the holes on the spring tank flange. Mount the spring tank with the open side toward the mounting surface to prevent damage to the springs. Connect the head unit to the spring tank with the attached RCA cables, plugging the RED plug into the OUT jack on the tank and plugging the BLACK plug into the IN jack on the tank.


  • Reverb In/Out Switch:

      This switch cuts and engages the reverb effect when pressed alternately; it does not turn the power to the unit on/off. The red LED indicates when the reverb effect is engaged.

  • Dwell:

      This controls the amount of gain the dry signal has that feeds the reverb circuit, i.e. how hard the springs in the reverb pan are driven.

      When first becoming familiar with the Sole-Mate's controls and how they affect the output, use small adjustments until the sound you are after is achieved.

      The Sole-Mate's dwell control is very responsive so using large changes in the controls range will prevent the user to hear the important subtleties that this control can contribute to the overall sound.

  • Output Level:

      This controls the level of the signal derived from the reverb generating circuitry, which is then mixed with the dry signal from the guitar at the output of the Sole-Mate Jr. Here again, the user is urged to make small adjustments so the the full potential of each control is understood.

      This control along with the dwell control, the musician will discover and endless array of reverb effects, from a background shimmer to a fully drenched surf effect, it's there for you to discover.
