Subdecay has captured every nuance of tube driven spring reverb by analyzing design, sound and the physics of real spring reverb tanks. Even something as innocuous as unplugging your guitar cable (kerplangagnangang) sounds like real authentic springs. While much gear was evaluated the main inspiration for the spring setting is still our 68 Twin Reverb. Unlike the amp you can bend nature of physics with the decay control (something even an outboard tank can’t do.) A tone control was added allowing you to dial in the perfect timbre. There is also an internal trimmer for running hotter signals into the reverb. The trimmer serves two purposes- 1. It allows you to turn down for hotter signals. 2. It does essentially what the dwell control does on an outboard reverb tank. You can turn it up for a more dramatic effect or back it off for subtlety.
Subdecay has retained an all analog signal path for your clean signal with an improved preamp. JFET amplifiers carry out the send and recovery of the reverb signal for even more tube like dynamics. The Super Spring Theory is even better in front of overdrive pedals or a dirty amp.
Improving overall performance was not enough. Subdecay has been listening and we know what you want. We’ve packed a ton of new features in the same pint-sized pedal. Now you can hear reverb tails when bypassed. Separate level controls for the dry and reverb sounds along with the new wide range tone control allow for subtle reverb to in your face saltwater splash.
There’s also that other reverb setting. ROOM. Don’t think of this as your typical subtle ambiance room reverb. That is certainly possible with the decay knob rolled back. It simulates a space where you can modify the very nature of physics. Longer decay times are like a cavern covered in ceramic tile with reverb trails over three minutes long.
Spring tank reverb and bonus “room” reverb mode.
Decay control to dampen or expand reverb.
All analog signal path for your clean sound to retain your tone.
Trails option when bypassed
Separate controls for the reverb and dry signal levels.
Redesigned preamp for tube-like dynamics and feel.
Tone control for subtlety or in your face splash.
Powered by a regulated 9VDC to 18VDC adaptor with a negative center 2.1mm barrel style plug.
If using a “daisy chain” power supply, all other pedals MUST be negative ground.
