Quality British-made spring reverb. Includes Stereo Reverberation Controller, remote reverb tank unit, UK 240v power supply, plus connection leads (5 pin DIN from power to controller and controller to reverb – not pictured).
Demo below. Also feature’s in Tony’s “Lords of the Springs” article in Premier Guitar Magazine.
NOTE: pictures are of another unit we sold. Current unit is in good condition – has minor scuffs and signs of use and the reverb tank has some light oxidation on part of the casing. Pictures will be added soon, or can be sent to the buyer for approval before shipping.
Serviced and working well – this is mono in and stereo out with a useful sweepable-frequency cut/boost EQ.
Very good cosmetic condition – a few scuffs and scratches and some blemishes on the reverb tank.
This is a great vintage spring reverb with a stunning sound which also reacts very well to abuse – gets thick and crunchy when you overdrive the input.
Made by Turnkey who also made the Bandive Great British Spring – this unit is a somewhat more practical size! Dating from the late 70s or early 80s it consists of a controller connected to a separate unit containing the springs – useful in order to isolate the springs from vibrations and interference.
240v power supply will also power three other Bandive units.
Demo below of a previous unit (also features the Hawk HR-202):
Springvestigations… Hawk HR-202 vs Bandive Accessit unit. Both available now – get in touch if they are showing as sold on the site. Percussion test – you hear the Hawk first. Note that both units are stereo out, but here you are hearing the left and right from each as one mono signal. In stereo both sound richer, especially the Accessit, and the Hawk has a phase reverse option that you obviously can’t hear in mono. Conclusions? The Accessit is maybe a better spring effect and you have more control with the Gain and Frequency controls; but… the Hawk doesn’t sound bad either, and it has a secret weapon (not deployed here) in the form of the rich, heavy, harmonic distortion you can get out of it if you plug into the mic input. So yes – you do need both . (If you want to hear that distortion then head to the Hawk listing on our site.)
