The Music Thing Spring Reverb is a flexible, easy-to-build voltage controlled 6HP DIY mono spring reverb module.
- Works with a variety of spring reverb tanks (including the A199 mini tank), or with the Accutronics BTDR-2 reverb ‘brick’ designed by Brian Neunaber
- Two cheap PCB panel designs - one with front panel sockets for the reverb tank
- Vactrol crossfade between dry and wet
- Tilt EQ on the reverb send to tune the voice of the reverb
- X-Fade input so the module can also be used as a standalone vactrol crossfader (crossfade demo video)
- Attenuverter on the crossfade CV input

All the details are on the Music Thing Spring Reverb Project Page including:
- Big instruction & build manual that will answer all your questions (PDF)
- Schematic (PDF)
- Eagle and Gerber files, front panel specifications, a Mouser BOM etc

THONK will be offering PCBs and panels

Excellent work, Tom!

I only discovered this project earlier in the week and it's the perfect final piece in my modular puzzle.



A few questions:

Is the small blue reverb tank shown in the build document available yet?
Could you share details please?

The panel documents show the co-ordinates and diameters of all the panel-mounted components.
Could you tell me the co-ordinates of the PCB mounting holes relative to these please?
I'd like to mount the PCB sandwich parallel to the panel but using stand-offs.

Do you know if Thonk will be keeping stock of the Spring PCBs, like your Turing Machine?

Thanks for making this project available!

It's on the Accutronics site: http://www.accutronicsreverb.com/main/?skin=sub01_08.html
I think they'll sell direct and they're looking for retailers.

Sorry, I don't have that information - I'd have to go back to the Eagle files and do a bit of maths.

I can't speak for Steven, but I think that's what he's planning.

Here's a video showing the crossfade mode; mixing between Fold and Square outputs from a DPO

Really nice thumbs up

Is it possible to buy the PCBs ? Will you make them or someone else, maybe ?

After a quick look at the BOM, I don't see the vactrols Silonex 32SR3 and VTL5C3 in the list ?
Am I missing something ?

I already have almost all the other parts though ! w00t
