The V1 H2O is a fairly simple and very manageable chorus and delay. The chorus is analog and the delay is an analog voiced digital effect. It has mono in and stereo outs and a 9VDC adapter. Very heavy duty pedal, feels like it could withstand a hurricane. It's not very large, but it certainly isn't a space saver. The switches are close enough together that you can turn both effects on and off with one step, which is very convenient.

UTILIZATION

The controls are very simple on the pedal. Chorus has a speed, depth and delay time knob and the delay has an echo time, repeats and effect level knob. There is a switch for the delay side to make the delays short slapback delays or long trailing delays. It's fairly easy to switch with your foot which was really useful for me. I found that I wanted a bit more repeats from the delay of this pedal.

SOUND QUALITY

The chorus can be very subtle or you can get it more lush just using the controls. The delay sounds nice but lacks repeats. No self-oscillation or anything fun here. With that said the delay side still has it's uses and is still very nice sounding. This has been one of my favourite chorus pedals that I have owned.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a very good pedal if you are looking for a good chorus and delay for relatively cheap. They can be found for a very good value used. The build is strong and the effects are truly nice. Very, very lush chorus. I would recommend this pedal to anyone looking for a decent starter or intermediate chorus pedal with a bonus delay feature. I just wouldn't recommend it to someone looking for a stand alone delay. Very nice pedal for the money.
