Spring Reverb:  Just like Plate Reverb, Spring Reverb was created mechanically by sending the signal electrically through springs instead of a plate.  Many amplifiers with built in reverb use spring reverb.  It has a distinct, splashy sound all it’s own and has become synonymous with surf music due to the heavy amount used.
