Re: tube vibratos etc..
The thing that confuses me is how the varistors do the job they do. I understand the oscillator, the way the shift phase by taking signals from plate or cathodes, and the different cap values to change the frquency response. I get all of this. The part I don't get is how the varistors well.....vary ! I understand how the Fender or Ampeg LDR/Light Source or even the photo resistors that Mesa uses, but I don't quite "GET" how the Magnetone swings the signals from the varistors. Anybody ?
