Carlsbro 4 Channel Reverb in very good cosmetic condition and perfect working order.
For a unit made in the late sixties or early-mid seventies, this mains-powered spring reverb unit is in amazing shape. A perfect match for guitars and vintage valve amps, but also a very useful and unique sonic texture for studio use. It’s no slouch in the looks department, either – very cool…
Everything works as it should, though care needs to be taken setting the correct input level to get good results. The pots are smooth and crackle-free. (Please note: it is always possible that crackly pots/sliders may develop over time when equipment has not been used – even during shipping – this can usually be easily rectified either by use or judicious application of suitable switch-cleaning spray). It’s got some tiny paint spots to the case but is otherwise sound. Comes with original mains cable.
As it is a UK 240v model, it will require a step-up transformer for use in countries with 100-120v mains supplies. The UK plug will be removed before shipping overseas to any countries with 230-240v mains electricity unless otherwise requested.
Spring reverbs are a great ‘secret weapon’ to have in the studio arsenal – not just for the ‘boingy’ effect as used by dub and reggae pioneers such as Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, but also for adding that unmistakable classic shimmery vibe to electric guitars. It’s a sound that lends itself well to modern production: the perfect treatment for overly-sterile digital delays and reverbs and it can be heard all over today’s music. Whether it’s cutting-edge dubstep from Rusko, top pop mix engineers like Tom Elmhirst (who used vintage spring reverb all over the last Adele album), or the Alabama Shakes’ album, ‘Boys And Girls’, the sound of springs is everywhere right now.
Try using a little tape delay before sending to a spring reverb, or use a digital/plug-in reverb and send the wet output from that to the spring to add character.
