mooseherman's review"Pretty Solid Digital Reverb"

Marshall RF-1 Reflector
This is a reverb pedal made by Marshall. Marshall is primarily known for their amps but they are also increasing production of effects pedals. This one is a digital reverb with a lot of different settings. There is a 1/4" jack for input and output, and an input for a power adapter. This pedal is not capable of being edited through MIDI or with a computer. It is also not a rackable unit.


This pedal is a pretty easy one to use overall, it's got a pretty basic functionality to it. It has a mode knob which switches between 6 different modes of reverb (hall, plate, room, spring 1 and 2, and reverse.) There are also knobs for damping, reverb time, and level. The manual explains each function pretty clearly but you can get a feel for using it without the manual pretty easily, in fact I'd say you don't need it in the least as you'll learn more from just using the pedal in practice.


I like this pedal for a lot of different things. For a live reverb in a difficult acoustic environment, it's got enough functionality to get great tones. The damping knob really makes this pedal more interesting, you don't always see that on this pedals, and I think that makes the difference. It can give you a variety of reverbs, from a surf-rock drenching reverb to a light room sound. Most of the 6 modes are pretty accurate in terms of their descriptions, and they all work pretty well. I really don't think they compare to analog or tube or spring versions of these effects but they do a pretty solid replication for a pedal.


While this isn't my favorite reverb pedal, it's pretty good for a digital, and one of the better pedals that Marshall makes. I'd say it most likely works best with the Marshall pedals, I don't use it with my Twin Reverb because that has its own reverb obviously. I like that it isn't too much money but is still pretty useful. I definitely would recommend this for somebody who needs a versatile reverb pedal and needs a more functional pedal that still sounds good.

Marshall RF-1 Reflector
Marshall Reflector, digital reverb pedal.
Powered via battery / 9volts sector.
Bypass mechanics I think, basically dsenclench tone signal is respect Switch-on tone signal is transform!
4 knobs: fashion / reverb time / damping / level.
Robust pedal and look nice, the knobs on the other hand are not really visible standing.


6 modes of reverbs: Hall / Plate / Room / Spring 1/2 Spring / Reverse.
Reverb time for his hard, damping lightens the specter of rflection, level is a mix of the effect.
As is often the effects numriques there are afterfacts when handling live knobs, otherwise remains a progressive, there is a micro break in the sound when changing mode.


Bad Bad ...
It's still cold, digital, reverb are not frankly Russias and unnatural!
Spring is the most convincing one.
Reverse mode is more difficult to exploit, but ...


Sold quickly, I will turn to an EH Holy Grail in the future.

norvegien's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" little more"

Marshall RF-1 Reflector
more reverb, good bills each with a reverse for the originality


easy to use, choice of effect, one volume, one tone for a "bright" or rather a "mat" and a duration of effect, manual could have been a little better developed, but is compensated by the time looking on the pedal


n my tube amp has no reverb, this effect is still nice clean sound for arpeggios and to soften the saturated, the above do not worry I'm thrilled we have fun games to change its function reverb chosen, and we shape a for what we need,
The HIC, in clear channel amp everything goes you can have fun with all possible settings, but beware of a surprise if it goes into overdrive channel, you must then lower the level not to be drowned by effect, it is not comparable with reverb amp integrated, this time should be measured but it is also a quality sound if you're looking paufin


I use it recently, probably I would do this choice, I have not tested other pedals but I compare with INTEGRATED reverb amps I could know, marshall mg, mf, line 6

Countdown's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" All that is expected of a reverb ..."

Marshall RF-1 Reflector
Reverb pedal analog stereo ... if needed!
It is very complete (see below), the correct size (same Boss, 120x70), not too heavy despite its metal structure (about 550g) ... I think the look aesthetically is successful (even if it is a detail), like all the pedals also Marshall ... (this is only my opinion of course).

So level connectivity, we have 2 entrances, one instrument and one for an expression pedal that will appropriate control / adjust the reverb time ... "live".
2 outputs are also present. 1 being the "bypass" and 2 for stereo when one is connected too.

Level settings, we have 4 knobs that are:

-Selector (MODE), which lets you choose between 6 modes of reverb. This can range from the "cathedral", the spring reverb, reverb to subtle and mellow ... short! Not easy with words, but everything is there.
Time-reverb (REVERB TIME), which controls the lag time of the effect, more or less "spacial".
It DAMPING, which controls the passage of high frequency (light / dark and thick gloss).
LEVEL it, which in fact is not a volume but a global setting of the passage in the level of effect on the sound.


Simple configuration but take your time and look calmly what is expected of this pedal. I think everything is possible. Anyway, there's no fire, eh? Do not hesitate to note some favorite settings, especially with the selected mode!
The manual is complete, it also shows 4 presets test. I have attached the pdf file to download to interested parties.


Very realistic effect.
I am a small guitar with average knowledge of gear, but I find this very rich reverb, and faithful to its desired effect.
I tested the stereo rack (Jmp1/velocity) + 2 2x12 and it's really beautiful.
I like the reverse which creates a weird and wacky on full chords (clean or crunch).
Otherwise, I use it in "classic" Knowledge 1 (hall), reverb time 1 hour, damping and level at noon to 1am also!


I love the effects Marshall. I have the "Swampfire" (modulations) and have owned the Supervibe (chorus) and Echohead (delay). I've never been disappointed with the quality of workmanship and sound of these pedals.
So, admittedly, I have compared this brand with the Boss, MXR and multi-fx line 6 and Rocktron, but I do not see anything negative report. After the pedals at 150 € each, minimum, I do not know, sorry!

I bought this pedal when I changed my amp head. I found what I needed in a reverb, so no need to waste time looking for something else.
Value for money very good for me (seller careful, box, instructions etc ...).
Personally, I recommend it, but that's just my opinion ... everything is tested! However, I tried to be objective.

I hope this review is helpful ...

Zique good at all
