  • Looking for a very specific reverb sound in a pedal

    Is there a pedal that will get me this exact spring reverb sound?



    I've tried several out now and they get in the ballpark but not quite as drippy/warm/deep/sproingy sounding.



    Hall of Fame sounds fine on most settings, but doesn't seem to do spring as well as I'd like. The Boss RV-5 was total garbage on the spring setting, but I haven't tried an RV-6. Biyang tri-verb was not good. What pedals should I be looking at?

        FRV1 is a classic, but the prices are through the roof these days! for that money you might as well get a surfy bear reverb tank pedal!

            I’ve never heard a spring reverb emulation sound like a real spring reverb. If you really want spring, there are things like the Carl Martin, SurfyBear and Anasounds that have a real spring tank inside. The old Danelectro Spring King apparently has one but I’m not sure how it sounds. Of course the old Fender amp top box would be killer....

            i think the Holy Grail does a decent job for the emulations.

                Thanks for the responses all.

                The FRV certainly doesn't sound bad, although as mentioned prices are stupid for them! I'm not hearing exactly the same reverb sound as in the video clip I posted (which I think was recorded with amp 'verb - not a fender outboard unit). The Oceans 11 isn't bad either, but I can definitely hear something that is less clear and less bouncy than the fender unit being compared against . . . especially with the longer trails. In a similar vein, I was checking out some vids of the catalinbread topanga which sounds a little closer to my ears.

                The snake bite doesn't sound at all like a spring reverb in that demo. Does nice hall settings (with what sounds like some sort of slight modulation on the trails). Am I missing something?

                  The digital convolution reverb in the new Tone Master series of Fender amps has the spring reverb sound *down*. I'd never know it wasn't real springs unless I kicked the amp.

                    I'm thinking knowing how to mix a track is more important here. The verb sound was nothing amazeballs to me.

                    Get an HOF and tweek it out with the editor.

                        yeah i guess i shoul've asked...are you talking about the reverb on the guitar throughout the track, or that wash of reverb in the beginning? because you'd probably need an analog delay going into self oscillation along with spring reverb for that.

                          Nah. TC's spring settings have gotten better than they were, but they're still not great. Don't know why. They're so good at everything else, but the springs are still comparative trash.

                            Yeah, I was going to say Topanga. I have a Hall of Fame, and I still bought the Catalinbread pedal.

                              Nice use of the word convolution.
