A fabulous, dark and characterful spring reverb unit. Modified with jack sockets for in and out, plus we’ve added separate wet only outs.
Recapped, serviced and set up for 240v mains.
This unit has a darker sound that can work wonders in a mix.
Note that these units are stereo in and out, but the reverb is mono (both L and R go through the same tank).
CONDITION: Good overall. Minor wear and signs of use. The wooden case has had a ding to one of the front and rear corners. Our mods means some sockets on the rear have been changed.

You can also see our full current stock of vintage studio signal processors here, but if you have any questions please get in touch as we have many years experience with these machines.
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.
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.
