« Good reverb »

Publié le 08/02/11 à 22:25
Blackstar has made some of the best amps in the world and some of these most competitive price amps in the world as well. They have singled handily taken a huge market away from Marshall and Mesa Boogie with their solid sounds amps and their cheap prices.

Now they have been putting a lot of focus on their distortion pedals and their effects pedals. May of their pedal almost resemble the look of their amps. They have very similar control knobs and switches that almost makes them like preamps. Those would be more of the distortion boxes than the effects but they have just gotten even stronger as a force with these new lines of products.

SOUND QUALITY

This is tube driven reverb pedal that is designed to give its user some of the most authentic and natural sounding reverb on the planet. These tube buffered effects pedlas are very popular due to the demand of the best tone period out of your guitar rig. The best part about it is that you don't have to bias these tubes. The tubes that you have to bias are only power tubes and these pedals are equipped with preamp tubes. So therefore you can switch different kinds in and out to see what flavor of tone you prefer with these units. This is a very cool idea in these pedals. I like to put this pedal at the very end of a signal chain. This means out this pedal as the least pedal before your amp on the pedal board. You want everything to comes through this pedal before it hits your amp. You get a very natural sounding reverb which s makes your tone just feel more brilliant and thick.

OVERALL OPINION

You can pick these pedals up new for eight at around $299. That is a bit high for a reverb pedal. I am not a fan of the price of this unit. I don't think it gives you the tools to charge people the price they are asking for it. I trust Blackstar and many of their amps give me that good feeling so I wouldn't believe that they would price gouge like many other companies, but I just couldn't pay this much for a reverb pedal. I would suggest getting this pedal on the used market and not paying new prices.
