When you bought your amp, how much attention did you pay to the reverb? Did you just turn it up a bit, heard it was there and then concentrate on the tone of the amp itself? Don’t worry, you are not alone, most people do that. We’ve all done it.
Once you got your new amp home, head over heels in love with it, was it then you noticed that the reverb sounded not quite as good as it could… Or maybe did this happen when you turned it up really loud, or took it to a gig… It happens. Maybe your dream amp is one of those that are being designed without reverb to ensure that the signal path remains as pure as possible. That’s a great idea, but playing without reverb…? Not an option for most of us.
You can buy any number of reverb pedals these days that sound like everything, they give you plates, halls, springs, rooms, gates, reverse halls… even reverse plates – who needs a reverse plate reverb? So many options that in all honesty, you will never use. It may be great to play with at home but would you ever use them..? Probably not.
Guitarists love a really good classic spring reverb sound. You know; those fat watery tones that could make your mouth water. Reverb that has tons of character and added a real juice to your sound, not like the new breed of digital coldness that seems to be everywhere these days. Step up to the plate (or more accurately, the spring) the Faux Spring Reverb by Wampler Pedals. The only pedal that gives you that consistent spring reverb tone that just hasn’t existed in amplifiers for years, or any ultra powerful effects unit, ever.
The great thing about the Faux Spring Reverb is that it retains the Analog base tone, doesn’t send your signal through digital/analog converters and back again (wrecking your tone completely) allowing you to be as springy as you like without your sound becoming lifeless, dull and… well, bad. With the tone control, you can control your sound completely and have your reverb be as bright as day, or dark as night… As lively and bright as a small hall, or as deep as the biggest cathedrals.
