I have had this pedal for a little over a month now, and it has exceeded my expectations (which were already high!), much like the Oceans 11 did. Creating and saving presets in each mode is very simple, and the fact that you can run two reverbs at a time, either in series or in parallel, makes for some interesting and colorful sonic combinations. Every single setting has at least two modes that you can switch between, and the sounds are unique, while still being very musical. This is a real treat for anyone who wants a high-quality reverb pedal that doesn't completely break the bank.
The sound is very lush and rich, without any grainy, static noise. Using it in stereo is not required to get good sounds, but you can really enhance the reverb wash by using a stereo setup.
The fact that you can save presets you come up with, and alter those presets without changing them once you have saved is essential for anyone wanting to use this pedal live.
Ease of Use
Figuring out how to use this pedal is super easy, even without the manual in front of you. It is very user-friendly and intuitive, and it is easy to fix any "mistakes" you make while experimenting.The print is a little bit small, making it impossible to see on a dark stage. To that end, it definitely serves to have a small lamp attached to your board if you plan on using this pedal in a live setting.
I've been using this thing for about a month, stomping on it pretty hard and the running it at maximum silliness into two loud amps. just like all of my other electro-harmonix pedals, it is built very well and feels like I will be able to keep it around for years.
This is absolutely a fantastic value! Often times, when we hear the word "value" we immediately think of the word "cheap." This pedal, although not cheap, will get sounds that you can only get from reverb pedals costing at least $100 more.
I haven't had to send any products back, or deal with the warranty or service department, but every time I have emailed with questions I have received a personal response, so I can vouch for the fact that they care about their customers.
I've been playing guitar for a little over 20 years, while "dabbling" in bass and drums (don't we all lol?) in different bands.
