i am not that happy with the reverb of my ac15c1. it's to long, i like some surf sound but it simply gets to muddy when over 50% wet.
@ phil: i read your article here on spring reverbs, got me precious infos about. i opened my vox and now i know the spring reverb tank is a "belton BS3EB3C1B", which tells me it has a long decay, like 2,75 - 4,00 sec. but i can't categorise it, 'cause in phils chart there's no "type 3" (like the 3 digit in the model name suggests) spring reverb.
people on the net suggest to swap it with an accutronics 8EB2C1B which would be medium decay 1,75 - 3,00 sec. which is a type 4 reverb and has 3 springs whereas the original vox has only 2 springs.
what, apart from the shorter decay would be the differences? a more dense reverb due to the 3 springs? more "boing"? would it be clearer?
