synchro: TQI, morality is a huge question and capacitors a deep subject. I say do it and don't tell anyone. Smile

Permalink Source Audio True Spring pedal . . . Sounds promising to me!

New Topic
Page 1 of 1

Have you seen/heard about this 'verb/trem pedal from Source Audio?

I thought the 'drip' that starts around 2:35 sounded pretty good for a pedal.

I'm wondering if this will be a Strymon Flint killer?

It looks like it's priced at $229.

It's apparently getting some attention... see this post by SixStringSurfer just yesterday in the "Ventris Dual Reverb Pedal" thread in this same section, just under your new post:

WANT!

Seriously, Source Audio makes great stuff. I have a Vertigo tremolo which is fantastic. I had a Ventris verb pedal, but it was too complex for me. I definitely want to check out this pedal.

I just got their Nemesis delay pedal a few weeks ago and have been quite pleased. Though having spent the $$ on that pedal means I’ll have to wait on the True Spring a little while. So I’m counting on some of you to take the plunge. ;)

Uh oh. The weird, artificial decay heard on this demo video worries me.

I'm sure it's something that wouldn't really be noticeable with a band, but with the guitar on its own it sounds wrong. It trails on too long and instead sounds more like a delay pedal.

Again, I just notice it in the above-linked video, not the other two demo videos on the SA site . . . so maybe it isn't so pronounced in person?

Sounds pretty good to me. Looking forward to seeing/hearing a shootout with other pedals and a real outboard tank.

Got one. It's really really good so far... The tone knob is very subtle, as is the dwell. I need to download the software to see all the editable parameters but honestly it is super impressive with the default settings. The trem feature sounds amazing too but still learning how to work with it as it involves holding down a "control" button etc. I A/B'd it with the Topanga and in my opinion the True Spring is more realistic and toneful. Also compared it to my '64 outboard unit and the unit is definitely way brighter. This pedal may sound better live if you switch between amp reverb and unit reverb as it doesn't change the overall tone as much. CooL era to be a surf guitarist!

if you have the pedal on with both verb and trem, and use the foot switch to bypass it, and then turn it back on, does it come on again as you left it, with both the verb and trem on, or do you then have to go back to the control switch and turn the trem back on and set it all over again?

That is my definition of a great question. Enquiring minds want to know, including my mind.

I have to say, this pedal is making my left arm twitch in the direction of my Visa card. Smile
