Accutronics & Surfy Industries

As much as we love the tradition and sound of the classic Accutronics 4AB3C1B pan, we have to admit that the decay of this pan is currently longer than the decay of the original pans used by Fender in the early 60s. The same model pan produced in the 1960s had a shorter decay, which produced a splashier sound and reduced the reverb tail. We are always searching for "that" sound at Surfy Industries, and we realised we had to do something about this.

So, we spoke to Accutronics directly and proposed to them that they make for us an upgraded 4AB3C1B spring pan with increased quality materials for a fuller sound, a more reliable product, and a custom decay level to get a bit closer to the sound of the vintage pans. We think we have found a great balance with our new product, The SurfyPan! The SurfyPan will now come standard inside all of our "big" reverb units (SurfyBear Classic and Metal) and will also be available for purchase separately.****



This is our top-of-the-line product and the perfect match to your vintage amplifier!

Is a vintage reverb unit true bypass? Changing the tone a little bit is part of the game here and we wanted to keep it so. We did not invent a new effect, our purpose is to allow everybody to enjoy that sound without carrying around a heavy and expensive instrument.


The original piece of electronics that started it all! This is a controller which features the same specifications of the Fender® 6G15® reverb unit replacing the tubes with JFET transistor technology. This is not a digital effect.

Spring reverb technology has been well known for more than 50 years. One of the first reverb units available for electric guitars was the Fender® 6G15® standalone reverb, which has set the standard for generations of musicians. Still today, the unique sound of spring reverbs is very popular among guitarists.


Basically, the tubes in the schematic are replaced with JFETS/MOSFETs and the output transformer with a current source. The circuit is all Class A and it is optimized for a tube-like harmonic content.
