Electro harmonics is one of those companies that buillds some of the best effects pedals in the world. The most common and highly recognizable pedal that they may have has to be a big muff distortion. They do create a lot of cool delay pedals and effects pedals and this is one of them. This is the holy Grail reverb pedal which comes in a pretty decent size box and has only one knob of operation. It doesn't have a small little control on the west side of the changes in the modes but there's not a whole lot of figuring out with this unit.


You basically have one control knob that turns the reverb effect the loudest it can go. There is a mode switch that changes the setting of the unit if you want a different voicing. it has a input and an output and that is about it as far as features go.


The sound of this pedal is a nice sounding reverb tone that will sound good in pretty much any amplifier for guitar rig is a classic vintage style pedal that doesn't have any new or modern features that you see on many newer pedals today. So it doesn't have any USB or midi capabilities but what it does is give you a classical old reverb style that has a single control knob to give you a nice sounding room filling tone.


I'm not sure if Electra harmonics is making these pedals anymore because they really have been pushing their newer digital reverb pedal that comes in a compact small nano box. If you're looking for a newer pedal then I'll probably go with that one but if you're an old-school type of person then you want the vintage electro-harmonics style then this would be the only way to go.
