As a soloing bassist I like something other than dry bass. This pedal adds depth to single notes and is the most awesome reverb I have ever heard , I have yet to find all of its abilities but will eventually . If you have a sound in your head I am quite sure this pedal will bring it out. Thanks EH for making the best of the best!!

Cathedral don't surf

By Kevin Hinckley

from California

I bought this pedal after seeing a few reviews on Youtube. I'm using a Carvin Bel-Air 212. Certain settings produce feedback when using the effects loop, so it has to be in front. My clean tone normally sounds bright and full. With the pedal on, it sounds like it's sucking the bass out of the tone. The Accutronics spring isn't as wet as I hoped for. The Cathedral is a decent pedal with different reverb options, but don't buy this if surf is your main style. For a Dick Dale tone, go with the FRV-1 or T-Rex Tonebug. I'm going to spend more time this weekend trying to dial-in a better sound, but chances are I'll end up returning this for one of the above mentioned pedals.

sweet to my ears

By bradley flippo

from beaumont tx

If the holy grail and boss rv-5 had a baby this is what it would be, the added echo reminds me of the boss rt 20 space echo, the infinite switch is awesome you can't get a bad sound out of this, i use this with the deluxe memory boy, sweet tone and lush reverb, the best reverb out of all of them

Solid Pedal

By Chris

from Buffalo, NY

I was looking for an all-in-one reverb pedal that can give me lush, shoegaze sounds, to a vintage plate reverb. This pedal does all that and more. Using this thing in stereo is definitely preferred, as it's a totally different animal than just using it in mono. You can hear a lot of subtle nuances when using it in stereo that just gives the sound a lot more character. The infinite reverb is also a great feature - my only complaint is that it only gives you a dry sound when you play over it, without any reverb. Despite this, the feature is really fun to play around with and gives you a lot of interesting sounds. Overall, this pedal is worth the money and is extremely versatile; and, like other EHX pedals, it's built well and is reliable.
