I was reading an issue of Big Daddy about recording funk and there was a technique listed there you that I've yet to try out. I'm going to type this out because not everyone can get a backissue of the mag and their content is yet to be online.

Big Daddy #5
pg 80
Shitty Is Still Pretty: Anatomy of a Heavy Funk 45
by: Gabriel Roth (producer for Desco/Daptone)

(Exerpt)
Figure 1: Gabe's Ghetto-Verb
Take the spring tank out of the back of a guitar amp or organ or anything else that you find that has a spring reverb. (You can order a Fender reverb tank through any music store for about $20) Use the biggest one you can find. You can use two channels of your mixing console for a pre-amp and a post-amp (Channels 11 and 12 for this example). Patch your auxilary output (effects send) into the input of Channel 11. Patch the output (direct out) of Channel 11 into the input of the spring tank. Patch the output of the spring tank in to the input of Channel 12. Patch the output (direct out) of Channel 12 into either the input of another channel (e.g. Channel 24) or into an effects return to use as a reverb return. DO NOT BUSS EITHER CHANNEL 11 OR 12 TO THE MAIN MIX. You are using these channels only to pre-amp and post-amp the springs and do not want to hear them in the mix. Boos tthe highs and cut all the lows on the pre-amp channel (Channel 11), and do the opposite (cut the highs and boost the lows) on the post-amp channel (Channel 12). Though the EQ settings should cancel each other out when the signal passes through both channels, cutting the low end on Channel 11 will decrease the high-energy bass frequencies passing into the springs which would normally cause excessive distortion, and cutting the treble on Channel 12 will minimize the electronic hiss generated by all these successive pre-amps.

Hope that's of help to someone.

yo thanks mike!

this is a nice addition to Dubcreator's post discussed here. the new idea in this case is to use one mixer channel each as pre and post amp.
