Great sounding reverb for almost any rig

Jon-Paul, 22.09.2015
I use high-output humbuckers with a fairly gain-friendly rig. Naturally at the stock setting, I seemed to overdrive the reverb a little too quickly. Thankfully the manual explains how to overcome the issue with a very easy-to-adjust internal trim pot. It took about 10 minutes for me to find my sweet point which was at around 50-60% of the travel. A really useful feature. This puts up with my higher-output pickups much better but still sounds great with a strat going into the clean channel at this pace.

The reverb sounds lush and exactly how you would want a spring reverb to be. I consider this a substantial upgrade to the TC Electronic reverb I was using. The controls are all expressive though some settings combinations can get a little too crazy sounding and unmusical though I believe such settings are outside of intended operation in any case. Not as easy to use as your standard plug-in and go sort of reverbs, it takes a little more playing with, but once you figure out how the controls react and get the trim pot set up it really is a nice easy to use pedal. It's worth the small 10 minutes of playing time to get everything figured.

Some sample settings would have been nice to get started, but otherwise a great pedal.

Simu 'ultimate spring?

Clément25, 21.01.2015
use
Bin is a reverb what. The sound is fuzzed and distorted, enriched the clear sounds with a more "vintage 60's" side than if you use a delay (although technically the reverb simu is a delay ...). After you have to love it ...

Characteristics
Two Spring and Room modes.
Refined settings of dry and wet signals to find the sound that pleases, balanced, slightly colored, or completely drowned.
Decay classic, more you do not have more ...
And very useful thing that we see more and more a Tone that allows to pass from a "Dark" sound to a spring sound very shiny bringing out the vibrations of the springs (it would be believed!)
The feature that makes the difference, the trail mode that keeps reverb tails after turning the pedal off. Great if you like the shoegazing (My Bloody Valentine here I am ...).
In short, Subdecay offers us a complete pedal without the feeling of being in front of a gas plant. Good game !

His
What to say. The simu 'Spring is superb. Especially since the different tuning can really find the sound that makes us vibrate.
The very (very) good surprise for me since I did not take it for that, it is the mode Room. The manual talks about a "bonus" mode. I had very little opportunity to use reverb type "space" simu but this one is cool. By playing with the Decay one can pass from a simulation of credible space to complete delirium reflecting to infinity and drowning the notes in the cosmos!

Manufacturing
Usual quality of pedals shops at first. I have not yet opened the pedal to check the welds but it seems to be solid.

Average
Super purchase, Thomann shipping. Nothing to say is perfect.
Note that the pedal has according to the manual a small internal Trimmer allowing to pass from a sound of reverb clear to a saturated sound. Not yet tested the thing.
