RV-1 Real Spring Reverb is a high quality real spring reverb for professional sound recording. The unit employs innovative circuit technology with two Accutronics, classic, full size, six-spring reverb tanks. The result is all the great sound of analog spring reverb without the problems usually associated with them. It can function in several modes, including a stereo output.

The unit features two channels, each with its own reverb tank. Channel one has a short decay time and channel two has a longer one. Each channel can be run separately or can be linked. Each Accutronics reverb tank is individually shielded with mu metal to reduce noise from stray magnet fields. The RV-1 Real Spring Reverb is a spring reverb for the digital age, using only the finest components for the highest quality reproduction.

Note! While the unit generally displays none of the artifacts that plagues early spring reverbs and is superb on vocals, brass and guitars, fast drum transients can produce "springy" sounds, which, although could be used as an effect, precludes using the unit as a traditional analog reverb for percussion.

      Comments about Demeter RV-1 Spring Reverb:

      This is a great box, the reverb is infinite, so so lush. This box sounds better than any digital verb I have ever heard, analog natural goodness.

      Had a question about the box and called Demeter and the man himself took my call, how cool is that. Hand made and supported in the USA!

      Be sure to remove the packing foam pieces inside the unit that keep the springs from being damaged in transit, and keep it a few rack spaces away from any other transformers.
