    Reverb for acoustic guitars

    This looks cool.

    I'd like to try one.

    Anybody ever seen one or tried one?

    Reverb for acoustic guitars



    I wouldn't use it on a vintage guitar though.

    That looks really cool, and the sound sample is pretty convincing. If I ever get my old Fender F65 sorted out, I might be a player.

    I'm wondering how it would work with a 12 string--I used the contact info on their site to ask them about that.

    That's an interesting question, and I'd like to hear the answer when you find out.

    I've been looking through the installation instructions and I'm a bit puzzled by Step 5....

    "Lower the unit towards the sound board. The six pickups should be in close contact with the saddle, actually lifting the strings slightly off of the saddle, making the pickups themselves become the effective saddle."

    To me, that sounds an awful lot like something that would change the action and/or intonation. I'd like some clarification on that if I was going to buy one.

    It sure sounds cool though.

    About 20 years ago, when karaoke was new, I remember a "karaoke microphone" that was sold in little mom and pop "dollar stores", usually in Chinatown. They were shaped kinda like an SM58, but a lot bigger. They were plastic, in bright colours. The mic did not plug in - it had some kind of springy-thingy inside. You sang into it and it filled a living room with your voice, all in glorious REVERB ON 10!

    Sounded A LOT like this device on the guitar.

    The best thing about this thing was the instructions on the package. I really wish I had saved them. The best example of Manglish I ever did see.

    This video will NOT sell me:


    This one just might:

    but then I already like Sawlon's playing.

    In all fairness, the first video is there to clearly show us the difference between having a guitar with and without the reverb.
    And it does that well.
    Perhaps they should have Sawlon's video(s) on their homepage...

    They replied that it should--depending on the string spacing--as mine is an S&P and they show it on an S&P 6 string--my 12 string should work...

    I'm just sitting here watching Sawlon's vidoes while my scanner runs through calibrations. Nice stuff. I may need a reverb unit for my Alvarez.
    I don't play guitar because I'm good at it, I play because it's fun!!

    I wonder what would happen if one of those was installed on a Tele Thinline or an ES335. Would it only be audible as an effect when the guitar was played acoustically, or would it make a difference when the guitar was played through an amp?
