fostex 3180 80's Vintage Stereo Spring Reverb Desktop Unit - 100V

The model 3180 is a compact stereo reverberation unit designed for the live musician or recording studio. The benefit of a stereo device is that a much more natural reverb sound can be produced with a good spatial image. Like many other budget-priced reverb units, the Fostex 3180 relies upon a springline mechanism to produce the delayed output. However, the unit also employs a novel 24mS predelay circuit, based on bucket brigade devices, to recreate the delay heard between the perception of the source (original) signal and the first echo repeat; the end result being a far more realistic reverberation effect than is usually obtained from such spring-based devices.
