|I bought this for reverb because i dont have a footswitch for the reverb on my little orange crush practice amp and also because i wanted some different sounding, deeper cathedral style reverb.
that said, im not amazed by the reverb nor am i disappointed by it. the room reverb is less distinct/impressive than i expected but the hall adds more and does the job. i just wanted a cheap alternative (bought this used online) to the Cathedral, but wasn't able to get all of those different sounds.
On the other hand, i was amazed that this pedal is actual hugely multi-functional. it has a pitch shift setting and an extra outlet for an expression pedal. its great value for the price to have that.
there's also tremelo. but more importantly, it has fuzz and a type of distorted drive on it as well. that's a lot of functions for an analog style stompbox. i would definitely take only this with me if i were just throwing something in my guitar bag/case and not taking my pedal board with me.
the only real draw back is that when you switch from reverb to pitch shift... and especially to fuzz distortion... the voume varies A LOT . so you have to turn that knob up/down to compensate.
nevertheless, being able to click on one switch on just one pedal (not a cheap digital pedal board but this EHX) and get both pitch shift and fuzz is great for me. one switch goes wet/bypass, while the other goes between trem/rev/pitch. though, you can turn the fuzz on / off... so that you can switch into the wet effect with either distortion or not. that was super surprising and helpful. again, just want to adjust the volume knob a lot if you have the fuzz on or off when going into the effect|
