This is an HTML version of the manual for the MicMix spring reverb,
model name STUDIO B Master-Room. It is a photocopied version I have,
so I hope nothing is missing. I got it scanned (thanks Greg at the
Bongo Club) and converted to ASCII text, then put it into HTML.
The only exception is the schematic, which is just a gif of the
sheet. Sorry if this is a little indistinct, but I can assure you
that it is just as legible as my photocopied version! I have tried
to keep to the format that the original had, within the limitations
of the Internet, for that retro feel. The header and foot links
are my own creation.
I am not too sure about the legalities of making this available
in this way, although I believe the company stopped trading in 1985
, so I am assuming its OK. Please tell me if it isn't.
Although it would appear that I am providing this out of the goodness
of my heart, there is an ulterior motive. I am looking for the 19"
rackmount electronics half of this unit, either working or broken.
I have only the spring unit (photos coming) plus a home made circuit
board, and would love to get the whole thing. Please drop
me a line if you have one of these lying around. You can also
go to the forum
and post messages about this wonderful effect! There is a page from
one of the managers at MicMix detailing their history at http://home.sprynet.com/~sregdorb/micmix.htm.
is no guarantee that there are no errors in the following text. Please
use your own judgment when adjusting, creating or repairing electronics
with the aid of this manual. Double check if in any doubt. If you
aren't qualified, please don't attempt to open and service electronic
units, but call qualified service personnel. Always remove the mains
power, unplug the unit, and if necessary wait for any capacitors or
other components to discharge before servicing. The spring unit itself
is heretically sealed, don't attempt to open it unless you are sure
that it is faulty, and even then as a last measure. It is probable
that the spring unit will be broken by opening it up.
