The Spaceman Effects Orion is the smallest reverb pedal with real springs in it, fitting two springs in a case that’s only 6 ¼’ wide by 4 ¾’ deep.
Entirely hand soldered in Portland Oregon, the Orion features three standard controls like Tone, Mix, and Volume, while the Dwell knob allows you to dial in how hard you push the dual springs, for splashy surf tone or a mellower spring sound.
Yoyu can get the classic “bang” out of the springs if you kick the pedal on the front side, but stomping on the footswitch won’t cause that.
