VSR3.2 is the enhanced successor of the VSR–3 - with focus on simplicity and excellent sound.
Most of the features, like the AccuBell spring tank (type 9), the TONE control as well as in- and output stages are equal.What we improved is the way EFFECT STOP is working. Compared to its predecessor VSR 3.2 offers the possibility to determine where EFFECT STOP cuts the signal path: PRE or POST the spring tank. In the new PRE mode the input of the spring tank is cut from the signal path, so the reverb’s decay isn’t abruptly stopped when pressing EFFECT STOP and still can fade out.
More than 70 years ago spring reverbs were used for bringing the large reverberated cathedral sounds to the homes of Hammond organ players. Meanwhile the sound became classic and you will find spring reverb devices in most studios around the world and even today it is kinda standard in guitar amplifiers.
The imperfectness is what makes the VSR-3 perfect for any kind of audio signal: organs, synthesizers, acoustic and electric guitars, vocals, (electronic) drums, whatever you like... it always adds that clashing and resonant but always musically and warm reverb sound.
Like the ReTubeVerb, the VSR-3 uses a spring tank made by specialist Accutronics. The reverb signal can be refined by a well-adjusted tone controller and seamlessly added to the unaffected original signal. Simple but effective.
Thanks to the well-shielded, internal switching power supply the VSR-3 works smoothly on any place in the world. In its 1U rack-housing it not even takes much physical space... but will create much acoustic space.
