PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Serviced, excellent condition and full working order. Vintage Great British Spring dual channel reverb made in England by Bandive. This is the stereo version with XLR ins and outs.

A feat of British ingenuity – a pair of Accutronics spring tanks housed in a length of plastic drainpipe…

It has the XLR in/outs (please note that for some reason on these units, inputs are wired pin 1 hot so may require custom-made cables to interface correctly with some equipment) and input level can be adjusted by a small screw dial (some crackling can occur on adjustment after long periods – use or Deoxit will rectify this).

It’s been tested, serviced as required and checked for safety and comes with an original 240v Bandive/Accessit power supply (the one that can be used to power up to four Accessit units)

As it is a UK 240v model, it will require a step-up transformer for use in countries with 110/120v mains supplies. We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply or recommend a high quality UK-made transformer if required.

The GBS has a good long reverb tail and sounds great with guitar – but we’ve found it really shines as a studio effect with whatever you put through it: keys, synths, vocals, loops, beats… We have one in our studio permanently hooked up to an aux send: has a character that is very had to replicate digitally and sounds great in the mix – almost plate-like (and of course you can always give it a little kick if things are getting too polite during the mix…).
