The Mad Professor Silver Spring Reverb (SSR) is a compact, easy to use digital/analog reverb with a pure analog direct signal path. It creates a natural sounding ambient reverb that will not get in the way of your original signal.

The Silver Spring Reverb’s bandwidth is in between the dark warmth of an amplifier’s spring reverb and the pristine clarity of a studio reverb.
There is no noise reduction system, in order to keep the decay as natural as possible.
The direct signal path is all analog, going straight through analog amplifiers with no filtering.
With the input set below the maximum, there is no signal distortion or coloration
The Reverb signal path is filtered to produce the Silver Spring Reverb’s natural ambiance.
The SSR’s sound is exceptional with a clean signal but was specifically designed to work equally well with the tougher performance requirements of distorted tone. The SSR can be used before distortion, although it was primarily designed to go after. If you use the SSR before distortion, you may want to use a lower Reverb (Wet/Dry) setting.

Built the Mad Professor way: Small footprint and big tone.
Complete true bypass and input of circuit grounded in bypass.

CONTROLS

TIME: This sets the decay time of reverb. Turn it clockwise for longer decay. At the full counterclockwise position, the decay is that of a small room. At the full clockwise position, the decay resembles the large hall sound of a plate reverb. Around the centre setting the medium decay time is optimal for rhythmic chords and single notes.

TONE: This adjusts the bandwidth of the reverb signal. Turning clockwise results in a brighter reverb tone and counter-clockwise darker one. Fully counter-clockwise approximates the response of a typical spring reverb, clockwise a studio reverb.

REVERB: This adds reverb to dry signal. Reverb can be turned fully off if Reverb knob is turned fully CCW, and is loudest at fully clockwise.

This product is covered by a 1 year manufacturer warranty.

Although we are not authorised to determine if any repair is covered under warranty, if the item was purchased through World of Music, then we are often the best people to facilitate the claim for you and will do so as timely as possible. Warranty does not apply to cosmetic damage or faults that are a result of user neglect. Although your mate is really handy with a soldering iron, any product modification or home repair will also result in a void warranty.

Quite often, something perceived as a fault is as simple as a faulty cable or power issue so we always suggest checking over Frequently Asked Questions on the manufacturer website first. It can be a helpful approach to getting to the bottom of a problem and save you a lot of time in getting your gear back up and running!

This item ships via courier; fully insured for your peace of mind. Orders require a signature on delivery and we suggest using an address where someone will be present for the speediest delivery time. For delivery attempts with no one present to sign, your order will be taken to the courier depot and a card will be left for you to organise redelivery.
