Foreword
More than 70 years ago spring reverb systems were used to bring the
natural reverberations of cathedrals into the homes of Hammond organ
players. Over the years they got smaller and more reliable and became what
we know today as spring tanks.
Nowadays reverbs were simulated more accurate and natural with the help
of digital technology and software. Despite, or maybe because of this, the
typical spring reverb sound with all its rough edges and flaws is highly
requested.
The VSR-3 vintage spring reverb creates this classic sound - not by
simulation but by using real springs combined with modern low-noise
circuitry.
We are proud to welcome you as VERMONA VSR-3 user and hope that you
will enjoy to use it during music production and performances.

• a power cord
• this manual
Connections and Powering
If you came here without any problems, you can finally start up your new
VSR-3.
ATTENTION!
Before connecting the VSR-3 all level controls (GAIN and
OUTPUT LEVEL) as well as the level controls of the following
equipment must be set to zero. On the VSR-3 that means
the far left knob position.
Switch off the VSR-3 before connecting.
1.
Connect the provided power cord to the MAINS IN (10) jack.
2.
Connect on of the input jacks (1) or (7) of the VSR-3 to the audio
output of your signal source, i.e. an instrument (guitar, synthesizer), a
CD player, the output of your DAW, etc.
3.
Connect one (or both) OUTPUT jacks (8) to an appropriate audio input
of your amplifier, mixing console, audio interface, etc.
4.
Start the VSR-3 by switching on the POWER switch (11) on the rear.
The LED above the BYPASS SWITCH (6) will be lit.
5.
The VSR-3 is operational.

Control Surface Features
Front Panel
(1)
INPUT
This high-Z jack input (1MΩ) on the front works well with electric
guitars or basses. The inputs on the rear will be muted when this
jack is used.
(2)
GAIN
This controller adjusts the input level.
For optimal leveling the corresponding LED should only illuminate
at high level peaks.
(3)
TONE
The sound of the reverb effect can be influenced with this
controller.
Low frequencies will be boosted when turning it to the left, on the
opposite high frequencies will be boosted when turning it to the
right. Center position is 12 o'clock.
(4)
MIX
This controller sets the value between direct and reverberated
signal.
If the knob is set completely to the left, only the direct signal can
be heard. The fare right position means no direct signal but 100%
reverberation.
(5)
OUTPUT LEVEL
This controller adjusts the output level.
(6)
EFFECT STOP
This knob turns off the effect signal. It also can be controlled by a
foot switch connected to the rear (9).
-5-

Rear Panel
(7)
INPUT
There are two input jacks with different input levels (0dBu and
-20dBu).
Only use one jack at the same time. Don't use both jacks
simultaneously!
(8)
OUTPUT
There are two output jacks with different levels (0dBu and -20dBu).
Both jacks can be used parallel.
(9)
EFFECT STOP
A foot switch for controlling the effect stop function can be
connected to this jack. The switch on the front panel (6) is out of
use when a plug is used with this jack.
(10) MAINS IN
The power cord needs to be plugged in here in order to get the
VSR-3 operational. The VSR-3 has a switching power supply and
can be used with AC voltages from 90V to 240V (50/60Hz).
(11) POWER
This switch turns the VSR-3 on/off. The LED above the EFFECT
STOP switch on the front illuminates once the unit is operational.
