Ampeg, Fender, Marshall, Peavey, Music Man, Crate and Mesa (among others) have all used these tanks.

Originally a subsidiary of Hammond, Accutronics is now owned by Belton.

Inside the tank, a small transducer converts the electrical energy into mechanical energy that vibrates the tank's springs.

The reverb character is determined in part by the size, length and number of springs, with more springs, springs of different densities and different spring lengths adding to the reverb's complexity.

The vibrating springs create the delays and reflections that simulate the way sound bounces around in a large reverberant room.

At the end of the springs, a second transducer converts the mechanical energy of the spring vibrations back to electrical energy and that signal is set back to the amp's reverb recovery circuit.

These codes are usually stamped on to the top of the tank itself and they tell you the type of tank, the input and output impedance, the grounding (if any) used by the connectors, the way the tank is supposed to be mounted and even the length of the reverb decay time.
