An über-simple reverb whose sounds are both addictively immersive and impressively diverse.

Gorgeous fidelity and near-infinite reverb “space” help convey emotions ranging from heavenly to nerve-wracking.

Trails mode renders 100-percent-wet sounds impractical unless used in a separate signal loop, as no signal is passed when the unit is bypassed. Hard-to-read knob labels.

$210
