    Spring reverb has nothing to do with distortion. Distortion is a either a controlled overload of a power amp Aka Marshall 50 watt master volume head is a prime example, or done by other numerous other methods ie....incorporated into the amp or by effects pedals etc.

    To hear an example of distortion in the extreme listen to heavy metal music. This is a prime example of distortion. However distortion is derived from sustain in a loose way. Sustain is not distortion however (but I am open to fire on that one) but is classified as overdrive.

    Yes it does but reverb is not distortion. The best spring reverbs are found in valve amps ie Marshall/ Orange/ Laney etc. These amps have overdrive which loosely can be classed as distortion and you can input the spring into the overdrive. But on its own spring reverb is not distortion as such. However the inputed square wave and how it is manipulated?......

    Listen to Jimi Hendrix at the Isle Of Wight Festival. Long gone but that is a prime example of not so much as distortion, but overload/sustain. The chap has never been successfully emulated.

    The wave is originally sine-you-sod-all. Distortion makes it more squarer.

    My reference to distortation was based upon the event where the spring not being isolated (or hidden) from the large amount of ambiant db .

    Thus inducing a kinda feed back loop..

    In a studio or test lab is one matter, but on stage the distortion is mega problem.... however, as already stated this type of (its all gone tits up waveform) can be used to create / stumble upon a unique sound (thats a swine to try and repeat)

    Distortion is not a mega problem on stage. You have choices on your amp and how you use it. You can overload the pre amp and create distortion that way. You can feed a processed distorted single into the pre amp (effects pedals) you can overload the power amp and create an overdrive which has a sound all of its own, Eric Clapton etc. The feed back loop is relevant mainly to microphones....however the feedback loop can be used to good effect if you put a guitar etc in front of the amp..this however is controlled feedback.
    The spring being hidden from ambient db I do not understand.

    If you must then provided it is outside zones 1 & 2 and not subject to splashing then a directly wired RCD/fused connection unit. Even better if they bought a fixed type hair dryer .
