Tripecac (Travis Emmitt)

I bought my Realistic Reverb Box in 1992 for about $30.

I'm pretty sure this is the same reverb box that Jon and I used in IPECAC. He bought it (or one just like it) from Radio Shack in 1989 or 1990. We used in on our Live at Carnegie Hall album to give us a "big hall" sound. I think he then sold it to me after he got tired of it.

We also used it in the Anchovies, probably after I bought it. I used it on several Tripecac albums as well.

How does it sound? Um, pretty fake. It's nowhere near as "realistic" sounding (no pun intended) as a modern-day reverb plugin. It was sorta fun to use, though.
