So first off, this pedal is unique as far as I know because it's the only mass produced spring reverb stomp box on the market. It's sloppy, too bright, and too wet. If you're looking for a subtle, clean spacious reverb full of texture and richness, well, two things: 1.) expect to spend twice as much as this thing costs for a digital box that doesn't suck and 2.) it says "danelectro" on the box, so what do you expect. Danelectro specializes in cheap, over the top, wacky effects that make up for their lo fi quirkiness with buckets of weird charm. This isn't the most flexible reverb. It does two sounds: over the top surf, and twangy old school rock and roll. THose are surprisingly useful sounds though, and you can get a lot of mileage out of this unit. If you want the same old same old canned digital reverb that everybody else is using, the boss and electro harmonix pedals are both great choices and well worth the money. but if you're looking for something that's a little off kilter in a way that makes you smile, then this might be a pedal worth adding to the chain.

I use my Danelectro DSR-1 with non-reverb tube amps (a Silverface Princeton and a 10-watt single-ended Frenzel). It can produce decent analogue (MOSTLY analogue, see below) reverb, even enough for some surf sounds, but the short spring lengths restrict dwell time compared to Accutronics tanks. I looked inside, and noted that the footswitch is not a typical design, but rather a momentary unit that latches some sort of circuitry. Probably sturdy enough as switches go, but who knows? I've had the unit for some months, but only have about 20 hours use on it. The knobs all function, with "Volume" being a wet-dry blender. The DSR-1 is not true bypass, and must be powered to operate. The 9-volt battery door is easily accessible and clips back in place firmly. The DSR-1 takes a standard center-negative wall wart adapter, but the two I tried induced too much hum, so I run it with an old Boss RPW-7 multi-tap power supply which is quieter. On battery power it is hum-free. The large 6 1/2 x 9 1/4 metal case is heavy-duty, and the jacks are good quality, as is the on-off light.

Danelectro apparently felt they had to 'thicken' the sound due to the short dwell, and added a bit of short-delay digital echo. It's acceptable, but I would have preferred an internal off switch for it.

If you're doing a lot of surf music, this probably won't be 'wet' enough, but for short money (compared to an outboard tube reverb unit) it gets the analogue sound.

Just purchased a Mesa TA 15 to replace my Express25 (which I love). No spring verb on the TA15 and I just cannot fit digital reverbs into my tone. This unit is not bad and for me wanting just a taste of reverb it is great as I also use a delay at various settings. Good for clean sounds and blues; who cares when sustain and dirt is at 11. Boogie plays well with it which is not always the case. OK with both HH and SSS.

I love my Spring Kings reverb. Despite what some have said, can be loud and crazy, or beautiful and subtle. I play a lot of older music (rockabilly and Beatles) and it works great for me! I would highly recommend this reverb unit. Its awesome!

This reverb is sweet! Not as thick as my Boss '63 Fender Reverb pedal, but with a nice clean rounded tone. I run a Schecter Hellcat VI through various pedals with the Danelectro DSR-1 at the end of one channel and the Boss '63 Fender Reverb pedal at the end of the other channel. This set-up seems ideal. The "Kick Pad" on the front of the DSR-1 is a nice touch, enabling you to get that punched spring reverb tank jangle (like in The Good The And & The Ugly soundtrack).
