Made in the late 60s early 70s designed to produce a natural reverberation impersonating the sound of some of the finest concert halls. Big, Dense and complex sound with only the slightest hint of spring-like wobble. The lack of a sonic signature of a room or hall makes it very usefull on both drums and vocals to create a unique space. The BX20 is a true classic spring reverb also used today by artists like White Stripes, Kings of Leon and Black Keys etc etc.
The first Plate reverb, a piece of history from Elektromesstechnik (EMT) 140 made in mono 1957 and in stereo 1961. EMT in its day was by far the most popular developer and manufacturer of artificial reverb solutions for the recording industry. Dense, with heavy diffusion — wonderful, warm, open, and natural. Not necessarily like a room, yet it has room-like qualities.
A swedish Plate reverberation design by Lars “Stockis” Liljeryd”, around 250 units ever made. Its an unique piece of gear with an unique sound. The stainless steel plate is only 0,3mm thick which makes it very bright and brings tons of character to a mix, we use it alot to bring a dark sounding vibe to an arrangement by rolling off its brightness.
Fairchild model 658
Made in the 1960s with three individual 662 Fairchild solid state preamps, transformer isolated input & output along with three individual spring tanks the sound gets Warm, deep, and lush. Great on vocals, guitars and almost all acoustic instruments. Ends up on most of our mixes here at Nevo Studios.
A swedish mono spring reverb made in the mid 80s from what then became the EBS bass amp company. Our impulses are made of two units to make a true stereo print. These springs are one of a kind and if you want to make sure you have a unique sonic signature you just have to try this one out.
Master Room XL-305
This spring reverb from the MicMix Audio company came out in 1979 described as the “The acoustic chamber synthesizer”. It is a dual channel unit with different decay times giving it a rich tone. Exhibits no unwanted side effects as boing, twang and flutter as many short spring unit has. It’s as natural as a chamber itself, a very smooth sounding spring reverb even for percussion and drums. If you ever record vocals with an RCA ribbon microphone for that smooth vintage sound the XL-305 adds another level of magic.
Master Room Super C
Another excellent, long spring reverb made in Dallas USA in the early 60s. Inputs and outputs are transformer balanced and it is a very rare unit. The springs measure 100cm and 78cm, some people say it sounds better than the AKG BX20 some say not. Its a different thing, still a beast in our opinion, works on everything.
Another classic reverb from Elektromesstechnik (EMT) that needs no introduction. It uses an electroplated foil of pure 24 carat gold measuring 27×29 cm and is super thin. A rather small unit being a plate reverb but the sound is rich and luxurious, simply amazing. It is always connected to our console here at Nevo Studios.
