Need an Awesome Spring Reverb and DIY Project?

Need an awesome spring verb and DIY project? Look no further.

But what if you’re into adventures and building cool things that you can ultimately use? Then you’ve got to try this:

  1. Back in the day (the 80s), the only reverb we had was something called THE GREAT BRITISH SPRING. I think we paid just over a hundred dollars for it, brand new. Wonder if they still make them.

    Of course, we also had an extra TEAC tape machine, show we used that for slap.
