The Wampler Faux spring Reverb is built to give you that classic spring reverb sound. In one simple, sparkly green box you get all those fat watery tones of old. Many of the modern digital reverbs that are built into amps these days tend to give you something of a digital coldness and many of the short reverb tanks used in combos tend to leave you a little flat. The Faux Spring Reverb is designed to sit in the loop or in front of these amps to give you back the character of an old school, long spring reverb tank.
Here's a little story on the subject From Wampler...
When you brought your amp, how much attention did you pay to the reverb? Did you just turn it up a bit, heard it was there and then concentrate on the tone of the amp itself? Don't worry, you are not alone, most people do that. We've all done it.
Once you got your new amp home, head over heels in love with it, was it then you noticed that the reverb sounded not quite as good as it could... Or maybe did this happen when you turned it up really loud, or taken it to a gig... It happens. Maybe your dream amp is one of those that are being designed without reverb to ensure that the signal path remains as pure as possible. That's a great idea, but playing without reverb...? Not an option for most of us.
You can buy any number of reverb pedals these days that sound like everything, they give you plates, halls, springs, rooms, gates, reverse halls... even reverse plates - who needs a reverse plate reverb? So many options that in all honesty, you will never use. It may be great to play with at home but would you ever use them..? Probably not.
The great thing about the Faux Spring Reverb is that it retains the Analog base tone, doesn't send your signal through digital/analog converters and back again (wrecking your tone completely) allowing you to be as springy as you like without your sound becoming lifeless, dull and... well, bad. With the tone control, you can control your sound completely and have your reverb be as bright as day, or dark as night... As lively and bright as a small hall, or as deep as the biggest cathedrals.
Take the random part of you tone away. Take out the one thing that is overlooked the most and replace it with something pure, consistent and altogether, perfect. The Wampler Pedals Faux Spring Reverb. The pedal you never knew you needed but can't live without.
