Good Reverb Pedal - blueSky Reverberator

Strymon are the makers behind this classy reverb pedal called blueSky Reverberator. I produced this video demo last night, so have a look. I purposely set the knobs all the same, and then switched between modes and types of reverbs, without altering the knobs in between. This way, you get an idea of what the pedal sounds like for a set-it-and-forget-it scenario. Be assured however, there are lots of options for tweaking the pedal in many ways.

The types of reverbs are Plate, Room and Spring. They are all very usable, and by working the Decay and Mix controls, you can come up with great reverb sounds. You can also store your favorite setting since the unit has a Favorite footswitch.

The dedicated pre-delay knob is very useful, and this pedal also has low damp and high damp controls, for further tweaking the reverb sound.

The modulated reverb is very classy, and I found myself drawn to playing lush chord progressions over and over as a result. Just beautiful.

The shimmer mode is intriguing. It adds a pitch effect to the end of the reverb, and it provides some very cool textures for chording work.
