Which Spring reverbs to use for dubbing?

Post by The Interruptor » Sun Mar 04, 2001 7:33 pm

I was trying to emulate the typical King Tubby <BR>rim shot effect sound for years until <BR>Mel Gray &#40;aka Eating Betty&#41; told me that <BR>spring reverbs have this very typical sound. <BR> <BR>Are there other people out there who have <BR>tried out spring reverbs and could tell me <BR>about their experiences? Which reverb units would <BR>you particularly suggest? <BR> <BR>thanks for your help <BR>Daniel

I got this <A HREF="http://pub2.bravenet.com/faq/show.php?u ... owcat">DUB Technique FAQ </A> <BR> <BR>here you can find the technique for creating Tubby style snare and hats <BR> <BR>DC <BR> <BR>&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42; <BR>You need a spring reverb and a parametric EQ on either your desk or as standalone unit. Place the EQ after the spring reverb. <BR>Boost the midrange of the EQ to the max. Make the Freq knob broadband between 5Khz and 200Hz if possible. <BR>Open the aux to your spring reverb on the snare and the hihat channel on your desk and start tweaking Freq knob on the parametric EQ. And voila … Tubby style hats and snare. Works also very well on the skanks. <BR>&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;&#42;

There have been a few of these "Great British Spring" reverb tubes on ebay lately that some guy's been selling. Check out the link below for an auction thats going on right now. I was thinking about getting one, but i think the guy wants a little too much for whats really a piece of pvc pipe with springs strung in it. The seller admits they're "cheap" and says they're perfect for dubbing too. I just got a furman rv-1 for well under the buy in now price for this reverb. But what do i know? People have been buying them. <BR> <BR><A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dl ... 1479279985" TARGET="_top">http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dl ... 9279985</A>

Hi, I was wondering if anyone is aware of HDB Audio from Germany. They make a fantastic Tube/Valve Spring Reverb that is in a rackmount case. The sound is great with the nice added warm touch from the valves. I use two of them in my studio and wouldn't go without them. The are really great value for money. There are others out there for 3 times the price. I actually am the distriutor for these products so they are available from me. <BR> <BR>I honestly find these units the best in srping reverb, period. Contact me at <A HREF="mailto:gargantuansound@hotmail.com">gargantuansound@hotmail.com</A>

There is a US stereo spring head &#40;I'll find out what it's called&#41; that I nearly wet my pants over a few years a go - thankfully the hangover wasn't too bad so I didn't buy it! Big money. <BR>But I still have to experience plate reverb which a friend of mine has access to in a studio not too far from home. It is a big plate. Really a big plate of brass or whatever. Digital does kind of suck in some ways doesn't it? <BR>The more we know... Cheers Interruptor for expanding our minds and horizons.

Demeter s new stereo spring reverb is a clean sounding box&#40;can use it in stereo like all verb should be, or dual mono ,or linked mono&#41; <BR>U can filter it whithout noise <BR>I would suggest an envelloppe follower filter on it <BR> whith snare or rimshot sound; <BR>HDB tube triple spring verb is a good choice too <BR>Produce good tubby sound whith wahwah skank <BR>and preamp very cool for too clean hihat/snare; <BR>Good hudge bass reverb sound never found yet!
