Spring Reverb is one of my favorites here. Personal taste would be to have it be a bit darker. Can it be tweaked with a change of cap/resistor value? Add a knob?

Thank you, counsel of elders.

C3/.01uF forms a low pass filter with R6 and R6. Increasing the value of C3 will cut more highs. If you wanted a variable hi-cut knob, you could hack in the "filter" knob from the RAT pretty easily.

Follow up;

In case anyone is interested, for my ears C3 can be .022uf or even .033uf... I kept a bit of the brightness and went for .022uf.

Perfect

:mrgreen:

Sounds like someone needs to put it on a toggle and label it as a bright switch. :mrgreen:
