Yeah, but the rack mount is... cumbersome.  8)
it's amazing, all the little dumps I work now are pretty good for sound, none of them have slapback or bounce or natural reverb. Back when I was working mainly churches, I rarely used any effects, the room usually supplied MORE than enough.

$6K - price of the gods as well. Here's the DIY link to build similar for around $500

If you really want to be a DIYer, why not build your own live echo chamber.  If you are in tornado alley it could also do double duty for a storm shelter.

A (real) plate reverb is not remotely a live sound tool. Even in studios they need to be sonically isolated from loud sounds.

Built one back in the early 70's. Decided a mic down the hall in the bathroom worked better.

Are you suggesting that sound providers keep a couple of these on the truck and set them up at gigs?

Well, you know, if you've just GOT to have that real, analog reverb sound that digital just can't emulate... then yes, you MUST buy these things.

I can't imagine someone actually using something like this on a real show... unless it was Pat Metheny.

well, I can imagine some of the quirky big name artists wanting such, but in my world I don't think it would be feasible, especially since real estate is at such a premium in the tiny, packed places I work!
