First of all, the reverb sound reminds me UAD EMT 140 and the audio quality is competitive with Strymon pedals. Usually plate reverbs are for vocals but this pedal works great both for clean and overdriven guitar sounds adding short invisible room like tones or bathroom like wall of sound in extremes. ?Time? knob controls the length of reverb tail. ?Pre-delay? allows you to use this reverb as slapback echo when reverb time set to short. ?Mix? knob sets the level of reverb sound without affecting dry signal level, which I like a lot. ?High pass? allows you to balance reverb sound between invisible or bathroom like. I usually set it at 3 o?clock for ?invisible? side.
This pedal has coloring preamp circuit, which affects both wet and dry signal. You can use this pedal as very cool boost pedal (without any reverb) if you set ?Vol? to maximum and ?Mix? to zero! Also the preamp sound depends on input voltage! Try 9, 12, 15 and 18 volts. My favorite is 12 volts, it gives the most neutral coloration.
The pedal has internal switch to change bypass in ?soft? mode (default) or in ?true bypass? mode. Unfortunately in ?soft? mode reverb signal is leaked into the output even if mix control set to zero and also I had nasty feedbacks in extreme positions so I switched it to ?true bypass?. Besides this the pedal operates flawlessly already for several months and earned its place on my Pedaltrain Nano pedalboard. It can be used as reverb, slapback delay and booster preamp pedal.
The reverb implementation is digital of course but probably due to preamp circuit the pedal sounds very smooth and analog.
