Bought the pedal to try to fill out some effects I don't have on my board, had trouble making good sounds when trying to make it sound good with other pedals. The combination of fuzz, tremolo and reverb make it hard to decide where to place on the board, and the output volume seems to not keep up with the input volume. I tried it more by itself and it holds up well when it is the main attraction. Shoegaze in a box! Would recommend if you're not a pedal person and are just looking for a single unit it cover some of the bases.

This is an excellent pedal - Had one on my studio board and another on my travelling rig - down-time last year I ran them together WOW, played till my fingers bled (not really, but for a very very long time). Only reason this wonder does not get top marks across the board is that you cannot use the reverb and vibrato at the same time (essential for surf). Still the effects all dirty up nicely with the "colour' and "dirt" switches, and it is really easy to dial in a perfect effect for multiple genres of music using the tone. At this price - get two, you will thank me.

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
