Spring Reverb

In by phoenixgreen

  • Developed in the 1950’s.
  • The spring reverb works in a similar fashion to the plate reverb except a spring is used instead of a metal sheet. The main advantage of the spring reverb is that it’s a lot smaller.
  • Spring reverb has a characteristic twangy sound.
  • When a spring reverb is knocked it creates a thundering sound
  • Spring reverbs tend to have a mid-range boost and a long reverb time.
  • The reverb time can be adjusted by the tension of the spring.
