Reverb in a stomp pedal does not get much better than this
Mombasaflash 03.05.2018
Reverb is not generally high in guitarist's consciousness. Most amps have a reverb of some type, mostly springs, and they are usually adequate for taking the edge off an other wise very dry sound and are generally just left at 50% or full on forever.

The Mad Professor Silver Spring brings the attention to detail and whisper quiet operation that is somewhat of a hallmark with almost studio fidelity reverb. No booming 'sproing' here.

Whether it is set to a short room sound or a huge hall with the reverb tone on maximum treble for a plate sound, the reverb sound really is very, very smooth and is top quality.

The absence of ANY alteration to the original guitar tone, with the effect off or on, is also very noteworthy. I have had the experience with quite a few delay pedals recently that, whilst offering a fabulous array of echo types and features, sadly alter the guitar tone to a noticeable degree. NONE of that with the Mad professor Silver Spring.

One small footnote to all this glowing praise. In my experience, reverb sounds fabulous in the bedroom or the rehearsal room and the studio. But live? I have rarely played a single venue where the invariably awful acoustics of hard reflective walls have not produced a huge booming sound man's nightmare. In these circumstances, the last thing a guitar player is even more reverb to finally wash everything all overboard.

Spring Reverb at its finest!
Jonathan99 16.05.2013
This is an awesome pedal...it's not my first Mad professor pedal and I hope it'll not be the last. If you want small to large reverb without loosing your I guitar tone this is the pedal for you.

Auf unaufdringlich Weise gut

Die Mad Professor Pedale sind schon etwas ganz besonderes - klein, einfach zu bedienen und gross klingend. Das Silver Spring Reverb ist da keine Ausnahme. Es hat genau einen Sound - Spring Reverb - und den macht es gut, verdammt gut. So gut, dass ich kaum einen Unterschied zu dem Röhrenhall in meinem Twin Reverb hören kann. Also - Klassenziel klar erreicht. In der Hallintensität ist alles möglich, von sehr dezent (eine Mad Professor Stärke) bis zu so "nassen" Sounds, dass man darin förmlich ertrinken kann.

Im direkten Vergleich kann ich vom TC Electronics Hall of Fame, einem EHX Holy Grail und einem Boss FRV-1 berichten. Alle Pedale klingen gut bis hervorragend und alle bekommen einen schön und authentisch klingenden Federhall hin. Von den vier mag das Silver Spring Reverb das authentischste sein - die anderen sind aber sicherlich nicht viel schlechter. Sowohl das HOF wie auch das HG klingen verdammt gut und höchstens eine Nuance schlechter (und beide haben noch eine ganze Reihe anderer Hallsimulationen, v.a. das HOF ist mit den Toneprints extrem flexibel).

Das Boss klingt auch sehr gut, aber im direkten Vergleich vielleicht etwas künstlicher.

Ob einem das Quäntchen an Ton das Extrageld wert ist muss wohl jeder selber entscheiden. Wer nur einen einzigen Hallton will und das ein Federhall sein soll, der ist mit dem Silver Spring Reverb sicherlich gut bedient.
