Can I take out a spring from my 3 spring tank or will that change the impedance?
Impedance should have to do with the transducer coil, not the number of springs, don't you think?
You'd think so unless the springs are in series with the windings...
I'm pretty sure the springs are mechanical components, not electrical.
Better to buy the tank you want and have the other for a spare, than risk ruining a tank and then still having to buy one.
I cut the spring and everything seems to work fine. Unfortunately, the delay is still so long it's unusable.
I think Scott Lerner has done some pretty extensive experimenting w/ reverb pans. He might be a good guy to talk to.
I wouldn't have cut the spring myself. You should've just installed a damper at the recovery end to stop it vibrating.
