Verb Engine

Not for the easily offended, or those looking for nice, clean reverb. You have been warned!

This piece of work is less a reverb than an unpredictable, untameable texture machine.

Based around the ever-popular Belton 'brick', this circuit twists and tweaks the boundaries of this unit. Controls for reverb level and volume are pretty straight forward. Add the gain control to the mix and things get crazy. The extra signal being mixed with the verb causes all kinds of overloaded, distorted havoc which is both fun and satisfying. Two distinct tone modes are available, giving you dark, cavernous rumbles or bright, spangly twang. Something for everyone, as long as you're a fan of the unusual.

NOTE: This kit does NOT include the Belton Brick. If you need one please order it on this page. The original uses the LONG variant, and for the most fun we'd say stick with that.

We highly recommend you stick with the board-mounted pots with this rather than the wired ones. You could mount the PCB using only the toggle switch, but the extra weight of the reverb brick will put a lot of strain on those few connections. Honest. If you go for the vertical board-mount pots note that they have round shafts. You'll need knobs with set-screw fitting.

Partial kit: PCB, all board-mounted components (not BTDR-2), pots.
