Demeter RV-1 overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Demeter RV-1 reviews

    RV-1 Spring Reverb is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from RV-1 Spring Reverb by Demeter - Awesome 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jon Demeter does it again I have heard knocks on this product, cant understand why. Its sounds great, and is as versatile as a spring can be. The two tanks sound great in stereo or mono. The link input/output can do some fun complex verb with early reflections. It has a HP filter for each tank as well as a phase flip. I hear you can ask for matched tanks so they both have the same time decay if you like. I prefer the way it comes, having different decay times is not a bad thing! Last but not least its not all noisy like older spring units, but it definitely sounds old school. Thumbs up to Jon Demeter
