Greetings,... just had an offer on this <BR> <BR>Please comment´s :-) <BR> <BR> <BR><A HREF="http://www.4sync.com/rc/picdisplay.asp?itemkey=1122" TARGET="_top">http://www.4sync.com/rc/picdisplay.asp?itemkey=1122</A> <BR> <BR>HM
Yes harder to kick, one could offcourse mount <BR>a little metal-plate just over floor-level for <BR>the shoes to hit, but even this would hurt the <BR>toes most likely, maybe AKG did sell a 3-kilo <BR>Hammer as assesory back then :-))) <BR> <BR>joke aside, it´s first time I see this thing <BR>got absolutely no referances as how it sounds, <BR>but I guess it hass a very "clean" sound, when <BR>I make a search on google I happens to get all <BR>kinda big and comercial studios still having it <BR>on their equipment list !!!!!! so kinda classic <BR>"state of the art" referance unit it must be, a <BR>"spring to end all springs", even our national <BR>radio-broadcast still has a BX-20 living along- <BR>side the most new digital equipment in one <BR>of their biggest recording-complexes. <BR> <BR>The little 3-button plate on the top is the <BR>original remote-controll, my guess that there <BR>is many tap-points so it´s possible to blend <BR>the hall-size etc. Some buttons also on the <BR>back-side of the box not visible here. <BR> <BR>I must admit I have a weakness for equipment <BR>like this, but then again it might not be good <BR>in DUB-production still, so any comments still <BR>wellcome if this is a holy grail to go for <BR> <BR>Regards <BR> <BR>Henrik Mahler
If i remember right, this one got a servo motor inside to shorten or lengthen the decay. Decay is variable between 1,5 and 4,5 seconds. Famous Studer desk´s got a remote panel inside with separate controls for both channels and also a indicator in shape of an Vu meter with reverb time marks. In the wooden Box is also separete 2 band eq´s. Stereo or Mono in and stereo out. Back in ´75 they cost same money like nu mercedes benz limusine in germany.
Spring reverbs can sound surprisingly smooth. <BR> <BR>If the aim of this unit was to sound as good as possible at any cost, then it probably has a very smooth, high quality and as HM says clean sound - not at all like the dub spring sound.
Yep, never bought the thing, for the new year <BR>forcus will be on recording real drums and my <BR>new motorbike ;-) as for spring my Danelectro <BR>will do for now, maybe I will make some home- <BR>grown on accutronic type 9 basis later, but <BR>that would be just a 1 unit 19" with several <BR>diffrent tanks in various lenght and with all <BR>individual amps/routing, (all purpose in one)
