  • Reverb for Rodgers 770

    I found a great deal on a Rodgers 770 but the church it was in had the spring reverb unit removed as they did not need it and some organists who played it turned it up and the people complained. The church had good acustics . Does any one know of any units for sale, all the wiring is there (the RCA plugs). Should I buy a used one or have a digital model such as those on E-Bay or from Harrison-Labs (I think that is the name of the company)
    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Look for reverb devices from Lexicon or Alesis. Nothing necessarily wrong with Harrison Labs, but these companies specialize in this field and you're likely to get a better product at a lower price.

      I also recommend using a digital reverb unit in place of the spring. My preference is TC Electronics, but others are also good. I had a 770 once where I used a Yamaha DSP-1 for reverb--the sound was stunningly good, but I used 4 corner speakers.

        If you want to try the original spring, you can buy a spring unit from tubesandmore.com in AZ. Not as clean a sound as digital, but it doesn't have any 7 year life parts in the power supply. I have a whole stack of effects in the closet I got "free" with my speakers and power amp, because the power supplies are past due for maintenance.

          I'm using 2, Lexicon MX400 units. I have had no problems.

            FYI, I purchased my Yamaha DSP-1 around 1986 and I believe it incorporates a lithium memory battery backup. I haven't powered it up in at least 8 years, and did so last week. Memory was in tact.

              Lexicon 400 here also; standard on Phoenix Organs. Lexicon and Phoenix collaborated together in fine tuning the 400 for organ.
