Strange Echoes: 5 Wild Reverb Pedals to Check Out Right Now

It's a wild world of reverb out there.

Where once we built giant rooms, enormous reverberating panels and walls, and huge machines to record and refract sound there is now—a box. For something as simple as sound 'persisting' after its initial production, it sure took us a while to get it down to a science. Rest assured though, now that its here, the world of reverb is forever changed and changing every day on top of that. Take a small trip with us as we go through some of the pioneers on this new front of tone 'harnessed' to produce the much desired effect of 'reverb.'

Earthquaker Devices Transmisser

This isn’t just a plug for our super cool CME exclusive colorway of this Earthquaker Devices Transmisser pedal. This thing is the real deal. Don’t expect to get that “vintage spring reverb tone” or add subtle ambience to your carefully crafted sound. This device from the folks over at Earthquaker floods your signal with otherworldly magic. The ultra-long decay offered by this little box lends itself to some crazy ambient tones, and is almost an instrument in and of itself, transforming any sound you throw at it into a washy, cavernous wave of sound.

Caroline Meteore Lo-Fidelity Reverb

Inspired by a modern Parisian metro line made of glass and steel, the Météoré lo-fi reverb from Caroline Guitar Company adds a gritty, spacious reverb to your tone without effecting your dry signal too much. The iconographic knobs that occupy the pedal’s face from clockwise left control reverb level, attack, which drives the reverb signal but doesn’t effect your clean tone, feedback, which allows you to extend the decays of the reverb, and size, which affects the overall size or impact of the reverb. Also featured on this pedal is a dark/bright switch, which changes the tonal color of the reverb without limiting its range, and a “havoc” switch, which overloads and extends the reverb signal and creates some explosive reverberations.

Alexander Pedals Space Race

This one will take you to the moon and back! Loaded with 6 unique voices, Mod, Spring, Lofi, Shim, Analog and Plate, the Space Race reverb pedal from Alexander Pedals has loads of tonal options ranging from wet, slappy, surfy spring reverb, to whacky, bucket-brigade-inspired analog delay reverb. Store your favorite presets and use an expression pedal to alternate between different reverb tones to create some truly wild and unique reverb effects.

Electro-Harmonix Oceans 11 Reverb

Get 11 different reverbs for the price of one with this affordable little black box from Electro-Harmonix. From subtle ambience to swirling, surreal landscapes, this pedal unleashes a world of new creative possibilities with a clean, easy-to-use interface. There’s even a few hidden features on this pedal that provide even more diverse tonal options. You’ll have to try this one out for yourself!

Old Blood Noise Dark Star Pad Reverb V2

Featuring three different reverb settings, pitch, delay, and crush, this box from Old Blood Noise will let you add warm subtle reverb tones to your signal, or get really weird and experimental, thanks to the two “CTRL” knobs at the top of the unit, each controlling different parameters for the different modes. Pitch mode adds an octave above and/or below your signal to produce everything from shimmering reflections to brooding chords beneath your dry signal. Delay, not surprisingly, adds in a delay function to the reverb and allows you to control the delay time and feedback behind the reverb. Finally, crush mode adds an octave and bitcrusher to your sound, that can create some wild, gnarly reverberated tones.
