Keeley Aurora Reverb Pedal

Join Keeley Electronics' grand entrance into the hallowed halls of psychoacoustic processing-the Aurora Reverb. From the distant echo of cathedrals to 600 pound sheet-metal plate vibrations to spring reverb coils in a tank, reverb captures your imagination and plunges you deeply into your musical psyches. Few effects complement a guitar better than reverb.

At Keeley Electronics, the Aurora Reverb had to meet certain specific criteria. It had to be affordable with no compromise to audio quality. It had to be easy for guitarists to use and be inspiring. And it had to offer the essentials for tailoring your tone without a dozen knobs to learn. Now achieved, they are proud to offer a true bypass, 100% dry analog path, low noise, 24 bit, high-fidelity reverb processor. AND IT SOUNDS GREAT!

The following controls offer everything from pristine fast reflections to ethereal spaces to deep, dark, and endless caverns:
- Decay: Decay controls the amount of time it takes for the reverberated sound to disappear. It provides a range from a realistic, close-quarters reverberated dimension to a walk-away-and-come-back signal of complex, still-ringing musical reflections.
- Slapback: Slapback is what most call predelay. Predelay creates distance. How soon or late you hear the first reflection is crucial to crafting the reverberated space. Sometimes you do not want any delay between your note and the reverb. And sometimes, for clarity's sake, you want the reverb to wait a moment before joining the dry signal. Such a setting would enable short, staccato, single-syllable type expressions to finish articulating before being suffused AND being joined by the tail-end of previously reverberated sounds. But when the illusion of infinite space is required, set your Slapback to zero and you'll streak vividly away like Dr. David Bowman breaking free of Jupiter's gravitational pull. The Keeley Aurora Slapback setting provides you with a sufficient range of time, from zero milliseconds to 100 milliseconds, ample time considering a pedal-board footprint this small.
- Warmth: Dial up the warmth. Opposite to most tone controls, it increases the warmth, as it is a dampening control. Its brightest setting is when completely dialed down.
- Blend: Blend will take your 100% analog dry signal and blend in the reverb, from just the slightest mix of wet to much more. Because the Keeley Aurora Reverb is a pedal-board unit, you should place it at the end of your pedal chain and use the Blend Knob to tailor your sound.
- The Toggle Switch: The three most popular reverb styles that don't come built into your amplifier are Room, Plate, and Hall. You can achieve cathedral resonance, enormous surface areas of sheet-metal plate sounds, or convincing room decays. Room sizes range from something like a broom closet to that of a barn.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Wonderful depth, with pristine tone"
Overall: The settings on this pedal all sound beautiful, but the plate setting is my favorite. It's a fantastic representation of studio plate reverb, that never overwhelms your tone. The warmth knob can make it sit very subtly around your guitar tone. In the hall setting, you get beautifully haunting cathedral like depth. The room is awesome and bouncy. The slapback knob adjusts the pre-delay, and the mix adds the wet signal to your analog dry signal. It's a fantastic sounding pedal, great for anyone who wants to add depth, and dimension to their tone. If you're looking for something to use as a special effect, you might want more controls, but for anyone looking for fantastic reverb sounds, it doesn't get any better!
Style of Music: I've played a little of everything over the years.
