edit MAINTENANCE reporting 2 main issues:
- the front buttons tend to get hard to push but a good cleaning just does the job.
- faulty quad operational amplifier LM348N has been replaced with an equivalent but with different pinouts, a homemade fit has been done.

RAW REVERB

REVIEW "totally obsolete stuff. Grab one If you like dirty noisy early digital sound. Instead, if you're looking for clean or classy reverbs or warm analog effect (TTL does not enter to it) the DRP16 is definitely NOT a wise choice "
