I think i have an easy and proper solution for a housing wich easily shakes the springs.
Make the bottom of the housing not flat.
Make it with an angle in the horizontal mid.
So you can easily rock it over the angle.

Sorry i can't explain it better in english.
If you like i can make a little drawing.

No worries, you might be on to something!
I think i understand,
but not sure if you mean the mid in the "x axis" or "y axis" I'll definitely take a drawing Smile

Alrighty fellows, looking for some feedback on my proposed build. I'm looking to make a big all in one pedal, so was looking at large housings and found the Hammond 1441-20 (http://www.hammondmfg.com/pdf/1441-20.pdf) which is I think meant as an amp chassis but should be perfect to fit this reverb tank:
https://www.tonefactory.nl/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/650x650/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/r/v/rv-9ab3e.jpg

The case is 17" long, 4" wide and 3" high. I think I'll put the circuit board upright on the side so I can use the full width of the case to hang the tank. I'll drill long screws on the end which should be long enough to hang the springs for the tank on.

This is a three spring tank, how much difference does that make? I haven't been able to find the 2 spring version of this naked tank type yet.

Is it only my surfybear that tends to sound too harsh and ice-picky? I've built it with the kit into a metal tool box; I've tried it with an ultralinear super reverb and deluxe reverb reissue. Both sounded too trebly when I tried to make it drip more, specially at higher volumes. Is it supposed to do that or is something wrong?

In the beginning was reverb

@Doc Helliday
sorry i only have my mobile phone right now.
So the drawing is very rough.
Here we go. You can create your housing so the botton has an angle or just lay a strap of wood under it. This will work X or Y axis.
Back to forth or left to right.

Have you tried adjusting the gain trim pot? My Surfy Bear build sounded too clean/sterile compared to my tube reverb unit at first, but tweaking the trim pot did the trick.

I have and it got better. I put som tape on the grill cloth to kill the highs a little and it's definitely better. I also used a different guitar with lipstick pickups and it's better.

Yes many things affects the tone. Also the Accutronic pan is brighter than MOD and TAD.
