Product Description

Source Audio TRUE SPRING Reverb

Preamp and Clean Boost

Turn on to the vintage charm of natural spring reverb coupled with pulsing tremolo with the TRUE SPRING Reverb. Source Audio doesn’t depend on the off-the-shelf reverb effects processors found in many modern reverb pedals, we meticulously craft every one of our proprietary effects engines and load them to high-powered, 56-bit Sigma DSP.

Our two man engineering 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.

Main Features:

  • Spring Reverb effects pedal
  • 3 distinct spring reverb modes
    • STUDIO SNAP – hard knee VCA style Compressor
    • OPTICAL RACK – based on the LA2A optical studio rack compressor – for gentler and more relaxed compression
    • DUAL BAND: modern digital processing dual-band compressor with 333hz crossover frequency
  • 3 distinct tremolo modes
    • Opto Tremolo: based on the optical tremolo (a.k.a. “Photocell Tremolo”) found in many combo amps of the 1960s and offers a distinct choppy character.
    • Harmonic Tremolo:  alternately modulates the levels of bass and treble frequencies in the audio signal – very pleasing and complex tremolo with characteristics reminiscent of a phaser
    • Bias Tremolo:  simulates the use of an LFO to modulate the bias voltage of tubes in an amplifier- smooth amplitude modulation with a mild overdrive created by tube saturation.
  • 128 presets accessible via MIDI
  • Second layer knob function accessible via Alt/Control Input-Switch
  • Deep customization features accessible via Source Audio Neuro App and Desktop Editor
  • Stereo Inputs and outputs – for multiple advanced routing options
  • Mini USB Port for PC connectivity (Windows and Mac compatible) and remote control
  • 3.5 mm control port – for connecting compatible Source Audio control devices
  • Selectable Relay True or Buffered Bypass Switching
  • Included 3.5 mm to 6.3 mm TRS cable to connect to mobile device
  • Powered by (included) 9V DC power supply(2.1 mm plug, center -, 165 mA current draw)

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. The SHORT Spring 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. The LONG Spring engine is not as dramatic as the TANK Reverb 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 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 of Guitar Player’s “Hall of Fame 2015” and Premier 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: This unique effect first appeared in Fender™  “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.
  • Bias Tremolo: This approach to tremolo involves using an LFO to modulate the bias voltage of the tubes in an amplifier. This essentially pushes the tubes in and out of saturation. The result is a smooth amplitude modulation with a mild overdrive created by the tube saturation.

 

Out of the box, the True Spring Reverb couldn’t be simpler – just plug it in, select from the three onboard reverb engines, dial in some tremolo if you like, and start making beautiful music. But something deep and powerful resides just below the surface – the truly “Big Idea” behind all of our One Series pedals is the second, far deeper, set of options and editing tools for crafting the perfect tone. These powerful editing tools offer an advanced collection of deep editing parameters. After customizing your sound, burn it directly to the pedal and easily access it anytime without having to reconnect the Neuro Mobile App or Neuro Desktop Editor.
