Excellent Intersound Spring Reverb from the USA – with options to add 4 band Eq to the dry and/or wet signal, this is a very versatile unit – great for shaping the reverb sound.
It is in very good cosmetic condition and excellent working order – has just been checked over and had the pots cleaned.
As it is a USA 110v model, it will require a step-down transformer for use in countries with 240v mains supplies.
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).
It sounds great with guitars – but it really shines as a studio effect with whatever you put through it: keys, synths, vocals, loops, beats… it has a character that is very had to replicate digitally and sounds great in the mix (and of course you can always give it a little kick 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.
