Lightning Boy launches a mega plate reverb
If you love EMT-style plate reverbs, take a look at the new realization from Lightning Boy, but be careful, you’ll need a lot of space for it.
Called VOG, for Voices of the Gods, the reverb is a 8’ x 5’ giant weighing about 400 pounds and equipped with two pickups for a true analog stereo plate reverb. The beast ships with a dual rack for the two necessary handwired Class A tube amplifiers.
Inside VOG, you can adjust the panel in order to vary to reverb decay time from 2 to 5 seconds, manually or via an optional motorized system that is remotely controlled.
The VOG Driver Amplifier is a 15W mono amp with a passive two-band equalizer and a volume knob. It uses NOS EL84, 12AX7 and 6x4 tubes, oiled paper capacitors and audio transformers.
The second amplifier, VOG Output Amplifier, is a stereo push/pull model with separated volume controls. Its hosts pairs of NOS 6922 and NOS 6x4 vacuum tubes as well as audio transformers. You can connect it to the effect return of a mixing console or to the inputs of an A/D converter for digital mixing purposes.
The price of VOG is $6000, to which you can add $800 for the motorized control system of the panel, and $50 for a stainless steel panel, and don’t forget the shipping fees.
