Shimmering Reverb Pedal with Intuitive 4-Knob Interface for Modern, Ethereal Reverb Sounds

Shimmer reverb is one of those effects that you have to hear for yourself before you really know what it is. Originally pioneered by recording legends Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, shimmer is produced by layering a tail of reverb that is pitched up an octave and sent through a feedback loop on top of the dry signal. This produces lush soundscapes that take on a life of their own, ranging from voluptuous chimes to interstellar travel-like sounds that will evoke memories of Carl Sagan's Cosmos while you're playing.

A string section in your gig bag
Used extensively by U2's The Edge, the shimmer effect has been adopted by scores of shoegaze guitar players for conjuring up huge, vibrant soundscapes, bursting with sparkling clarity. Ever since U2 started working with producers Eno and Lanois, shimmer has found its way on to classic performances like
With or Without You, 4th of July, and City of Blinding Lights. Wherever there's a need for grandiose string sections of ethereal presence to add body and scope to a passage,
Fluorescence fits the bill.

I called my review that as space is what this pedal reminds me of. A very cool pedal, especially if you are a fan of U2, Daniel Lanois, or ambient music in general. Definitely worth it, to me anyway. There is a lot of shimmer in this thing, and it's fun to tweak and adjust.
