EMT 140 Large Plate Reverb
I don’t care what anybody or their Gearslutz mother says, to my ears there is nothing, and I do mean nothing, to compare with the rich natural sound of an EMT plate reverb. I grant you, these are not the smallest box of frogs in the universe, but if you have the space (and who needs a bedroom after all?) this is one mean dude that will put a smile on the face of your clients, if not your sour-faced mum.
I’ve paraphrased some blurb from the Universal website (excellent reading as usual) but to add my few pennies’ worth, would say that these plates have come from the original owner, one of the most prestigious studios in Europe, where they were kept from new in a dry, air-conditioned plate room. We’ll service and can offer a choice of tube or (my preferred) solid state plate amps. They sound quite amazing and cost more than a house when new. Decades have been spent trying to emulate the sound digitally without success.
Plates in this condition are as rare as rocking horse teeth. Dreaaaaaaammmmmy!!
