Post subject:  'Bounceback' circuit

Hi - first time post here, and aptly it's about my first Rickenbacker product I bought - a TR25 (I also have a 360/12WB)
I bought this new in about 1983-84, from the now-closed Hessy's music shop in Liverpool (where the Beatles bought their gear) I'd seen an ad in the back of Melody Maker (now ALSO gone!) for the Rickenbacker range of amps - TR7, TR25 and TR75 I think - saying that Hessy's were the only UK dealer selling these amps. I was intrigued that Rickenbacker actually had a range of amps, and being in the market for an amp and not being able to afford a Rickenbacker guitar, I thought an amp would be a cheaper way to get some Ric-branded gear!
My amp was on offer at £125 I think, and I did a deal for cash for £110. I loved it - and still do, although it's on loan at a friend's house.
I could tell that it was, even then, perhaps old stock - my instruction manual had rusted staples in the centre! But long before the internet I had no way of finding out about the model.
Anyway, the original ad, and also the manual itself, makes a big mention of the revolutionary 'bounceback' circuitry in these amps' design. I've always been intrigued as to what this is, and what effect it has - it's not a term I've heard used anywhere else. I'm not big on electronics, so technical explanations will whizz over my head, but can anyone please explain in simple terms what it means? Unless it was just some marketing thing that never caught on.
Thanks for any info!
John (London, UK)
