Hi There,

I've got a minty Sarno Tonic Pre Amp. I have too much gear as it is, and a new baby, so I must part with it. $400 o.b.o plus shipping. Thanks!

I use the Sarno Tonic in a 15" TC Furlong combo cabinet. It's the ticket, in my opinion. It sounds the best around the 2nd set when everything's warmed up.

No it doesn't have reverb, I think Brad Sarno mentioned maybe being able to get a computer chip you could put in there that would give it reverb. But I don't see a place for that anywhere. So as far as I know, there is no reverb. Eric, what do you use for Reverb?

My Tonic Preamp has Reverb. I wasn't aware there was a Tonic without Reverb.

Both of mine have reverb. I think it was an option when Brad originally built them.

Wasn't the reverb an option? The Tonic I had didn't have reverb.

As I recall, reverb was an option on the Tonic.

The other night I used it but with a Wet Reverb pedal instead of its onboard effect. I also went straight into the Effects Return input. Big difference.

I highly recommend this pre-amp. Build quality is outstanding. Sound and versatility is great.
