From Source Audio: Turn on to the vintage charm of natural spring reverb coupled with pulsing tremolo.Source Audio doesn’t depend on the off-the-shelf reverb effects processors found in many modern reverb pedals, we meticulouslycraft every one of our proprietary effects engines and load them to high-powered, 56-bit Sigma DSP. Our two manengineering team of Bob Chidlaw and Jesse Remignanti put years of collective man-hours into capturing every nuance and idiosyncrasy of the spring reverb and tremolo effects from some of the music gear industry’s most iconic guitar amps and outboard gear.The result is indisputable sound quality with magnificent tonal depth and precision. The Spring Reverbs The True Spring’s reverb effects are based on a mechanical design originated by the Hammond Organ Company™ in the late 1930s. This stark design uses a pair of input and output transducers to inject an instrument’s dry signal into an actual set of spring coils and capture the very distinct reverberations as the sound bounces back and forth within the springs. Of course, Leo Fender adopted this design in the 1960s with the some of his "blackface" amplifiers and a revolution was born. ​ Short Spring Reverb: Modeled after the unmistakable twang of "blackface"amplifiers of the 1960s. After extensive research we found tremendous diversity in the spring reverb sounds of a variety of amps. Some offered a tighter, less animated tone while others sounded “drippier,” with longer sustain and livelier reverb trails. TheSHORTSpring reverb engine offers a taut sound with a quick decay and smooth trails. Long Spring Reverb: Produces long and deep reverb decays with noticeable “drip” and highly animated trails. TheLONGSpring engine is not as dramatic as theTANKReverb engine, but does offer an extremely authentic representation of some of the livelier reverb tanks found in vintage combo amps. Tank Spring Reverb (Outboard Spring): Captures the unmistakable effect of the tube driven outboard spring tanks of the 60s. The sound of reverb tanks like the classic Fender 6G15™ are characterized by their “drippy” attack and animated trail. This original two-spring design produces a bouncing, delay like sound inseparable from the early days of surf rock and spaghetti western soundtracks. The Tremolos The True Spring Reverb also allows you to combine any of its iconic spring reverbs with any of the pedal's three tremolo effects. The True Spring's tremolos are the same organic effects that originally appeared in our Vertigo Tremolo - the winner ofGuitar Player’s“Hall of Fame 2015” andPremier Guitar’s“Premier Gear Award.” Opto Tremolo:Optical tremolo (a.k.a. “Photocell Tremolo”) is the effect found in many combo amps of the 1960s. This version of tremolo relies upon a neon light bulb and a light dependent resistor called an "optocoupler." The non-symmetrical aspects of the light and the optocoupler give the tremolo a distinct choppy character. Harmonic Tremolo:Thisunique effect first appeared inFender™“brownface” amps made between 1959 and 1963, which alternately modulated the levels of bass and treble frequencies in the audio signal. The result is a very pleasing and complex tremolo that has characteristics reminiscent of a phaser.
