Overview

The Afterneath is an otherworldly reverberation machine that uses a swarm of short delays to create wild and cavernous reverbs and scattered, short rhythmic delays with bizarre characteristics. The reverb created is beyond massive and goes well beyond the territory of most reverb pedals. The controls allow you to stretch, smudge, swell and even self-oscillate into messy ambient washes of sound.

The Length control adjusts the decay of the reverb; anything from shorter hall through endless plate style reverbs can be achieved. The Reflect knob controls the regeneration, basically feeding the output back through to create an even deeper otherworldly dreamscape. The Drag control lets you pull the reverb through time by slowing down or speeding up the reverb. The Diffuse knob adds control over spread of the reverb ranging from identifiable attack to a wash of smooth reverb. The Dampen control adjusts the tone of the reverb, both stinging bright tones and warmer swell.

The end result is an ethereal, ambient wash that goes from hall to an infinite glitched-out orchestra pit warming up in a canyon at the bottom of another canyon inside a well. The Afterneath is true bypass with an all digital reverb engine, all analog dry signal path and hand made one at a time in Akron, Ohio.

Features
  • Length: Controls the decay length of the reverb.
  • Diffuse: Adjusts the spread of the reverb. Sharper with more attack counter clockwise, more ambient and washy as you turn it clockwise.
  • Dampen: Clockwise for brighter tones, counter clockwise for darker tones.
  • Drag: This digital reverb is made up of a bunch of short delays, this separates the delay lines creating a stuttering, pingy effect. This is the coolest control on the Afterneath, we highly advise slowly turning this while you let notes ring out for a cool warped speed effect. More delay as you turn it counter clockwise, more reverb as you turn it clockwise.
  • Reflect: Controls the regeneration of the reverb, turn clockwise for more wash and echos, counterclockwise for less. This will self oscillate if turned up high.

    Comments about Earthquaker Devices Afterneath Reverb Guitar Effects Pedal:

    The Earthquaker Devices Afterneath is amazing in the sense of creating soundscapes and sweeping epic washes of musicality, and I would recommend one to anyone who likes to do atmospheric music of any kind. It is an amazing pedal and I'm very glad to have it, but as a word of warning it does what it does extremely well, and it sounds great, but musically you might only use it to put down a foundational track and then go back over it to play a lead along with what you previously recorded using your other pedals. I really enjoy this pedal though, but it can get away from you if you're not careful!

    Comments about Earthquaker Devices Afterneath Reverb Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Let's face it; EQD are KILLING it right now... they don't really have one 'speciality' as they make fantastic verbs/delays/fuzz/OD/wave transformers/etc/etc... but this might be my favorite pedal they make. If you play shoegaze/post-punk you need this thing. It's capable of creating your basic wet reverb that you can have on all the time, or it can open a portal to the nether regions of the galaxy. The trick with this thing is that it's actually a bunch of short delays, not necessarily reverbs. You can manipulate the delays to achieve the effects I previously mentioned as well as everything in between. Personally I run mine almost all the time to 'personalize' my tone, but have used/abused the drag feature on recordings to make all kinds of weird stuff go down. Worth every penny.

              Comments about Earthquaker Devices Afterneath Reverb Guitar Effects Pedal:

              This pedal brings a whole new level to reverb. It sounds great preamp. This thing can add just a twinge of wet reverb, and can completely turn your guitar into a synthesizer holding long tones. It also has the ability to echo the notes pending the way you set the knobs. It took a bit of playing with to learn what does what. It is not super intuitive. But the instructions included provided all the help I needed and a few magazine reviews also helped me learn how different this pedal is. If you want standard reverb, stick with something that's been around longer. If you want original and full versatility, here it is. Time to go play in a cave and make my neighbors melt into their couch.

              This pedal is truly awesome. Never played with a reverb so good as this one. Although, we need to say it is not a regular reverb as we are used to deal with. But if you are looking for ambient tones and to feel like Richard Wright is playing together with you, this is the pedal.

              Comments about Earthquaker Devices Afterneath Reverb Guitar Effects Pedal:

              I picked up my Afterneath pedal last week, and I just can't stop playing with it! It reminds me a lot of the MemoryMan but seems to have better tone. The sound seems buttery, almost. The thing seems to be built like a tank. I haven't thrown it at anything yet, so I'm not sure... I wish there was a tap footswitch on it. Also like the MemoryMan, you aren't going to be finely adjusting your settings while you're playing it, unless you are masterful with bare feet on stage. This pedal brings out my creativity and my desire to play guitar. It really reminds me of picking up my first digital delay pedal a long long time ago. This is truly an inspiring pedal. 'Nuff said.
