Yamaha G5 Spring Reverb Impulse Set

by Flo Audio



Hi guys,

I promised you exotic pieces, here’s quite an exotic one!

I have the pleasure to share with you the tiny Yamaha G5 guitar combo which was made in japan in the early 80s! I didn’t know it at all, so i was eager to see how it sounded! Its spring doesn’t sound harsh at all as it doesn’t have a long release, which makes it quite usable on lots of possible sources! Less noisy than the Park G10R too!

I captured the spring with sine sweeps, at 4 different levels of reverb (3-5-7-full) and 9 different EQ settings, depending on the reverb level, all in all 24 impulses including 2 ‘All In’ settings, which of course implies that every knob was turned to 10! 4 ‘Amp Noise’ are just loops of the noise that the amp does by itself.. 4 ‘Kicked’ settings specially added for the wild at heart haha! 7 ‘Miced’ miced with a sm57 and finally 5 ‘Cabinet Impulse’ including a pass thru captured with a sine!

44 impulses!

As usual, this is a freebie that i’m very glad to share with you, and i hope that you’ll enjoy it!
