I've just built my first CB amp. It's a simple 2.5 watt Artec circuit w no reverb. I recently saw a pic on here of a CB guitar with springs literally mounted inside the body of the guitar to give a reverb affect. I'm curious if this same idea would work in an amp. No circuit or electronic control, just literally a spring or two mounted inside the amp cabinet. Maybe drill a couple sound holes in the front of the amp to let the reverb ring out a bit. Has anyone here tried this before? Is it worthwhile to do? Thanks!
The springs in the guitar box vibrate because of the string vibrations. All spring reverb units in amps have a strong preamp or tube to activate the spring vibrations for Reverb effect. I tried to activate spring reverb with round piezos recently, but it just wasn't strong enough.
Maybe if the speaker was mounted on a plate/baffle with spring mounts like a plate reverb is made?
If it did work like that, it would be constant without control though.
