That’s quite a name… for a spring reverb unit.

Made in the USA and still with its original Fisher-branded valves (tested good) and Gibbs reverb tank, this is the sound of King Tubby, Lee Perry (see YouTube demo further down). A valve spring reverb is not something you’ll find (effectively) replicated in plug-in form: it’s a living, breathing sound. Boing.
Serviced and in good working order (bear in mind this is based on vintage 60s technology so isn’t whisper quiet).
It’s been fitted with a three-core mains cable for electrical safety and should be securely-mounted when installed.  See detailed photos below to assess condition.

As it is a USA 110v model, it will require a step-down transformer for use in the UK/EU.
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, or a top pop mix engineer like Tom Elmhirst (who used vintage spring reverb all over the last Adele album), the sound of springs is everywhere right now (check Alabama Shakes’ album, Boys & Girls).

The Fisher’s a great studio send effect, much-loved by dub producers – it has a unique character and is unlike many other springs we’ve used (and of course you can always give it a little tap if things are getting too polite during the mix…).


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.
