Thank you for welcoming me to your forum, I would like to ask you a quick question about the Buff N Blend V1 rev2 that I built few years ago, I would like to know if any of you tried to put a spring tank reverb in the loop? And if so, what did it give? What technical characteristics should this spring tank have to fit with the buff n blend loop? I would love to buy or find one spring tank to try but I thought it would be a good idea to ask here if anyone else had already tried it! Thank you for your feedback and have a nice day.September 20, 2023 at 2:45 pm #29898PlaysforfunModerator
YOYO, I haven’t tried it myself, but It would have to be a fully functional, stand alone spring reverb circuit. Capable of functioning either with or without the BnB. The BnB simply splits and balances. It wont drive a spring reverb tank. If that is what you mean then you would get what I think you are imagining: you could then mix any variable amount of dry and wet signal. If not you will first need to google making a spring reverb circuit first. CheersSeptember 20, 2023 at 3:33 pm #29899
Thank you Playsforfun for answering so fast. I will make a try with some overdrive before and after the tank and if the result is poor DIY something or buy something to drive it. Thanks for your help, i will make you a return if i succeed in my research.September 22, 2023 at 2:48 pm #29920BrooksParticipant
Craig Anderton designed something called the Stage Center Reverb…I don’t believe it is in any of his books…I think it was from a magazine article. It is basically the circuit that needs to be used with the reverb tank. Google it up…there are some stripboard layouts out there somewhere. I have not built it but had plans to at some point because I have several surplus spring tanks in a box somewhere…October 2, 2023 at 9:06 am #30030
Thanks Brooks, it’s not easy I lack knowledge in electronics, in fact I found the diagram on the Stage Center Reverb on generalguitargadgets but there is no ready-made pcb or diagram for a stripboard here. I will continue my investigations! Thanks 😉October 2, 2023 at 1:06 pm #30036PlaysforfunModerator
Here is a vero layout that google provided. Info here. The few vero circuits I’ve done, I used a sharp drill bit spun with my fingers for the red squares. You need a break of the continuity in the copper strip there. Mind the placement of jumpers and cuts, even under the IC, and the rest is easy enough.
