  • diy spring pedal

    Has anyone built a small spring reverb pedal?
    I picked up a fairly compact spring unit out of an amp on the bay...

    I've seen people with external spring reverbs about the size of a pedal that they bought fairly cheap, a few companies make them. Never seen one DIY'd but it's certainly possible.

      The problem with making a DIY spring reverb is that the reverb tank takes more power and voltage than a battery typically supplies, so you pretty much have to use an external power supply.

    I haven't, but I've always wanted to build something like the Great British Spring to use for recording.

    Anyway, Craig Anderton's Center Stage Reverb design runs off 9V.
