Greetings all,I'm working on another build with dual springs along the thru body neck inside the box for reverb effect.  My last build didn't seem to generate that much effect from the springs, so I…Continue

My Google Fu is so weak.  I've been looking for an excellent flat unit (no body curve) for a build.  Can't seem to find a good one, but I know they are out there.  What kind do you all prefer and…Continue

"There was a video that Shane did awhile back of using metal yard rake tines mounted inside the box for a echo reverb effect."

"As I mentioned above, the Resobro guitar uses a blade from a putty knife under the bridge and stop tail piece to make reso sounds. Might get some ideas from that."

"That's fantastic Taffy, great experimentation and I know you had fun doing it. The on/off part made me think of the Duesenberg Guitars Resobro bridge system, it can be turned on/off by pushing 2 screws on the bridge posts(tunomatic style…"

"Hi, I'm learning a lot with this spring thing. By stretching the spring to open the coils, so they stay open when the spring is no longer stretched, I think makes the spring more responsive' My spring is easily set into motion by the…"

"Hi, my thinking is you could be inhibiting vibrations rather than increasing them, with a tin barrier installed in the box.  Taff"

"I am also thinking of lining the inside of the sound box with sheet tin. that may help in bouncing the vibrations. Also want to try this for the reso i am building..."

"Hi, I found an old spring in my scrap bits drawer so decided to experiment used an unfinished CBG I have on the bench. The spring is about 10-12mm diameter and about 200mm long. I have it mounted in the box so that I can find out what excites it,…"

Paul Craig replied to Mikey Hearrold II's discussion In Body spring reverb effect
"Hard to do with a physical spring reverb because of the vibrations, you'll only be able to change the intensity of the effect. At least that's what I'm thinking. A electronic reverb effect would be easily dampened or turned on/off."

Paul Craig replied to Mikey Hearrold II's discussion In Body spring reverb effect
"I like the one you built with the piezo on the spring. Regular guitars with tremolo's have a different tone than the ones with the hardtail bridge(I.E. Strat vs Tele) because the vibrations from the strings carried through the body and hardware…"

Taffy Evans replied to Mikey Hearrold II's discussion In Body spring reverb effect
"Hi, just wondering if anybody has added a dampener to the spring, on/off switch, or some other way of before and after listening test. Taff"

"How a reverb tank workes: "The basic concept is this: a transducer converts an electrical signal into mechanical motion. That mechanical motion modulates the spring which then carries a similarly shaped wave across its length and mechanically…"
