Verdict
For a genuine spring reverb for use in studio situations, the Retroverb does a great job. For reverb with a different flavour and a bit of personality it makes a useful complement to the usual digital units. That's not the end of it though, while a pure spring reverb unit might have been a little dull and perhaps lacking wider appeal, Vermona, by combining spring reverb with the filtering etc have created something much more special that is a great sonic resource for anyone wishing to add something quite unique to their studio rack or live rig.
