Vermona DSR-3 Dual Spring Reverb
The DSR-3 – dual spring reverb – is a professional spring reverberation unit for use with stereophonic sound sources. Besides this function, the unit offers additional parallel and serial operational modes for advanced and creative applications
As in our valve based model ReTubeVerb, the classic VSR-3 and the creative Retroverb Lancet, the DSR-3 relies on finest quality reverberation springs manufactured by AccuBell (formerly Accutronics). To assure perfect stereo sound, the springs were carefully selected and hand-matched.
Each channel offers two band equalization with BASS and TREBLE control being matched to the specific frequency spectrum of the springs. By this, the effect can easily be adapted to your personal sound preferences.
The DSR-3 offers TS in- and output jacks as well as balanced XLR in- and outputs. Balancing the outputs is carried out by specially designed and manufactured output transformers with excellent sound characteristics. This also qualifies the unit to be used as a first class DI box.
The three operational modes allow both SPRING REVERB channels to be used in interaction or independently:
- STEREO for the use with stereophonic sound sources. For perfect channel matching, the first SPRING REVERB channel’s physical controls are used to define both channels settings.
- DUAL MONO for use with two independent sound sources. Each DSR–3 channel works as an independent unit.
- SERIAL for experimental reverberation effects. Here, the first SPRING REVERB channel is fed into the second channel. This allows creation of long lasting reverberation tails.
The DSR-3 is carefully assembled by hand in our electro acoustic manufactory in Erlbach, Germany.
The VERMONA DSR-3 allows creating full, deep and rich reverberation effects at highest quality breathing the charm of former days.
