    has anyone ever tried one of these out? the kick feature seems pretty cool (though couldnt you get the same effect out of any real spring reverb pedal by simply kicking it?) thanks! -dave

    Yeah thats the point you simulate kicking a spring reverb amp, but without kicking and scuffing and denting your spring reverb amp :eyebrow:

    I hear they are meant to be quite good and I've never ha da problem with any danelectro pedals, I wouldn't pay much for it mind.

    Hope this helps

    Kicking my Fender Reverb is much more fun!!! No 2 kicks are quite the same.

    Naaaah *L*

    The foot switch went kaputs... Seems to occur when the footswitch is 40+ years-old. I'll prolly build a new one eventually.

    BUT to end this hijack...

    I looked at the Danelectro Spring King, but it appeared to be made of plastic. Obvious remarks of abuse aside, I am also really tough on gear. I have 2 gauranteed giigs a week at church, 2 rehearsals, and the possibility of 1 or 2 more of each a week. I end up moving my gear several times over the course of a week. A plastic housing probably would go bye-bye pretty quickly.

    If you get one, stick up some sound samples. I'm not above re-housing, if the guts inside are good quality. I'm looking into a second, smaller Pedal board for my AEB (chorus, reverb, and EQ) and want to stick on a good Reverb that will sound good, but won't cost me a fortune.
