Simple DIY Spring Reverb

Hello All,

I just got a couple of accutronics spring reverb tanks from ebay, I would like to build a simple mono I/P stereo O/P reverb unit with input level, mix and feedback controls, all of this to be used as an FX unit to send and receive from and to my desk. Any ideas of where i can find a SIMPLE schematic?

Many thanks.

Ghetto reverb looks fun but I'm looking for something a bit more sophisticated... It does look fun though!

It'll have to be pretty sophisticated then, to beat eq on the way in and out and such

Just kidding. Fair enough if you want to build an actual box.

Thanks for the memories!

I built one of these from their kit in the early '80s as a result of some magazine article. And I had NO technical expertise then (and not much now). You can buy their kit, a chassis and have around $150 bucks in it. Sounds really nice. Back then there wasn't anything that you could buy that compared. Actually still have it somewhere.....such fond memories of those days and how much it exceeded my expectations at the time (O.K. they were not that high) I've drug it around the country all this time.

I'll post a pic if I can find it.

Perfect. I love this site, and I love that Roth article! I'm off to buy a spring tank.

Id go paia, mod an existing verb (pioneer) or pick through the best verb box schems and choose what id like in my own vs. What actually can be accomplished with my tool set.

Otherwise preservation sound has a few ideas.
