On a particularly hot summer day in 2019, David Hilowitz came across this charming old glockenspiel at the Philadelphia Flea Market. Aside from its distinctive, homemade look, what makes this particular instrument unique is its resonator tubes – something one tends to see on larger instruments such as vibraphones and orchestral bells.

Reverb Tank Violin

A reverb tank, as the name implies, is an enclosure that contains a sound chamber and a reservoir for water. The instrument’s body vibrates in much the same way as it does when any other bow is used to play an acoustic guitar.

The internal springs of a cello vibrate as the instrument is played, causing the interior springs to shake. This generates a one-of-a-kind, sympathetic reverberation that does not exist in traditional violins.

The reverb tank is an essential part of the violin’s unique sound. Adding a small amount of reverberation, gives the violin a richer, fuller sound that is both familiar and disorienting. The tank also helps to give the violin a warmer, more melancholic tone that can be unsettling.

However, it is important to keep the reverb tank clean and dust-free so that it does not affect the quality of the sound. With proper care, the reverb tank can help to create a unique and powerful sound that is perfect for any musical setting.

Two Presets Sustains and Tails.

“Sustain” presets contain a long note with a resonance that fades out. “Tail” presets contain a shorter note with a resonance that quickly fades out. “

The “Reverb Tank Violin” Sample Library comes with two presets: “sustains” and “tails.” “Sustain” presets contain a long note with a resonance that fades out. “Tail” presets contain a shorter note with a resonance that quickly fades out.
