EMT 140 PLATE REVERB

Plate Reverb Project?

I came across this EMT 140 reverb description while perusing my Audio Cyclopedia last night. I just might consider building one of these and documenting the entire process. 


It looks somewhat do-able. 3' x 6' annealed steel sheet, tubular steal frame, one magnetic driver, 2 piezo pickups, some sort of amplifier / mixer circuit. Who knows, it could be fun....







Although my plate reverb plug-ins are convenient, they're nothing like a real plate verb! I'll look into a bit more and post next week on my decision. 




First, I'll need to figure out a place to put it!
