Three spectacular new reverb pedals released this year – what hugeness can we coax from them?
Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.
Welcome all ye tone seekers! In this episode Daniel and I take a look at the three big reverb releases in 2020. Well, Daniel does – I kinda nod a lot and get swept along.
Reverb pedals have advanced perhaps more than any other genre in recent years with companies honing ever more powerful DSP into musician-friendly, easy-to-understand interfaces.
This trio fits that description perfectly, offering exciting paths towards true inspiration.
If you're minded to tell us about all the awesome reverb pedals we didn't put in this video, we know. We know we know we know we know. We know you love your pedals and we know you're disappointed when we don't put your pedals in our videos. We have to make a selection and today, this is it. Cheers!
Filmed before lockdown, just in case you were wondering.
