Effects Kit - MOD® Kits, The Wave, Spring Reverb

$275.00
In stock

The Wave is a versatile stand-alone, tube driven analog spring reverb unit kit. It can be used in front of your guitar amp or as a line-level analog reverb effect for the recording studio. Two controls allow you to serve up a wide range of wetness from just a touch to over the top psychedelia. The "dwell" control adjusts the input signal level driving the tank and the "reverb" control adjusts the level of output reverberations from the tank.

The Wave's all tube design utilizes four dual triode vacuum tubes - three 12AX7s and one 12AT7 - and comes with a MOD® three-spring reverb tank. MOD® reverb tanks are deemed the closest to the original reverb tanks from the '60s made today. The Wave's reverb function can be switched in and out pop-free via the front panel toggle or with a footswitch. Footswitch sold separately (see P-H470 for compatible footswitch). The Wave has standard ¼ inch in-and-out guitar jacks in the front for use with your guitar and amp, and standard RCA in-and-out jacks in the back panel for use in a recording environment.

The Wave is equipped to be rack mounted using just under 3U of space and is approximately 11 inches deep front to back. Four large rubber feet allow the Wave to be safely placed on top of most contemporary guitar amplifier heads and combos for stage use, and it fits into a rack without having to remove the feet. The Wave comes with a pre-punched powder coated steel chassis, easy-to-follow instructions and all necessary parts.

The reverb "level" knob works similarly to a blend adjustment by incrementally incorporating the "wet" signal.

The "dwell" control adjusts the input signal level driving the tank and the "reverb" control adjusts the level of output reverberations from the tank. So if you turn the reverb control all of the way down, you will get only dry signal?

Yes, that is correct.

From my personal experience with this kit I didn't notice any kind of excessive hum or noise during use.

There is not a cage available to cover the tubes but the unit is designed to be rack mounted in a 3U space so you could go that route if you require extra protection.

The Wave will sound great running through you amp's effects loop and can also be used at line level for recording.

The tubes types are set and optimized for this unit. You can however experiment with different brands.

You would have to purchase the transformer separately. Do a search for SKU: P-T290WEX.

At this time we do not plan on making a stereo option. Since this is a kit, we encourage you to modify it at your discretion.

The one thing you might need to take into consideration is the mounting plane of the reverb tank. Each tank is optimized to be used on a specific plane. For example, the tank in this kit uses a horizontal open side down mounting plane. For more information on mounting planes please see our article on reverb tanks: https://www.amplifiedparts.com/tech-corner/spring-reverb-tanks-explained-and-compared

Tom Anderson - December 2nd, 2016

This was the first time I built a kit from Amplified Parts™. The instructions and drawings provided with this kit made it much easier to verify the component placement than simply using a schematic. I'd recommend reading all the instructions and reviewing the drawings before getting started so you'll know exactly what you're getting into. It only took me about a day to complete and the unit works very well.

Greg Gustilo - February 19th, 2016

This company is second to NONE in customer service and build quality!!!! Great instructions, super fun, and this reverb sounds better than any I have heard. Blows my 64 epiphone pathfinder amp reverb out of the water which used to be my favorite. My Lexicon pcm 90 is shaking in its boots. When I had trouble after building the unit, contacted MOD and they responded within 5 hours......WTF? AMAZING! Better still, had me up and running with their fix (lets be honest was my fault) which took a couple of email responses, each response in quicker time then the last. GREAT customer service!!!! I love also that they post modifications to their products also....Diy is alive and well! Thank you so very much, could not be happier. Greg, Minneapolis, USA

GARY PRUETT - April 18th, 2015

What a great kit! Easy build, but exceptional sound. Best reverb ever! I really enjoyed building this kit. The instructions were superb and the clarity was amazing. I have built many effects boxes with limited instructions (if any,) so this was a joy from beginning to end. I really just can't say enough about this kit. Buy it, you'll love it.
