We will start building a custom spring reverb with an engineer and we need to choose the right Spring Reverb Tanks for a 1U rack unit.
What I've chosen was this http://www.tubesandmore.com/products/P-RK-4AB3C1B
, it has a long decay but 2 springs. It should fit a rack, (16,75'')
But I was confused. Long Decay is good for a deep long reverb effect but what we need is the thundering spring effect. So do you think a tank with a medium decay but 3 springs will do bettter? Or should we stick to the long decay / 2 springs? Anyone?
We also decided not to put EQ on it, we'll handle it on the mixer. Gain, Tone and a kick pad for shake effect will do I guess?
My second question is, the tank we chose has RCA inputs and outputs so that you can use it alone. Will it be effective if we connect it to a send and return to an individual mono channel? Can we create the boingy tone with the feedback when we turn on the sends of the channel to itself? And when we touch the tank a little it should make the rattling thunder sound I guess.. Is it correct? If it costs a lot, we're considering to use it that way.
Thanks for your help
