The Physics and Psychophysics of Plates

Plates, Reverb Beards, reverb design, Reverbskägg

Plate reverberators were introduced in 1957 with the EMT140. This was touted as a compact alternative to a reverberation chamber. This is true, as long as you consider a 400 pound twin mattress-sized box to be “compact.” By…
