Tsakalis AudioWorks Ocean Reverb - Summer Gear Slam 2020

Greek pedal guru Chris Tsakalis updates his flagship reverb with more nuanced algorithms for each of its three voicing modes.


3 Types of Reverb

  The Ocean was designed to produce studio quality classic and ambient reverb, enabling you to set different moods without having to sacrifice too much precious pedal-board space due to its small size. It offers a wide range of textures, from thick, endless hall reverb to symphonic shimmer and vintage spring reverb.

  It features three different reverb type modes: Hall, Shimmer and Spring, all customize-able via Size, Diffuse and Storm controls. The Mix control lets you adjust the level of the reverb volume in respect to the dry signal.

  Another very important aspect of the Ocean is that it does something that many reverb pedals fail to accomplish. It respects your signal and preserves your sound signature!

  The Ocean features 3 different reverb algorithms:

  • Hall mode (HL) Choose from echo similar to that of a small room all the way to a long “haunted” hall.
  • Shimmer mode (SH) From classic hall reverb to symphonic – almost infinite reverb with pads and overtones.
  • Spring mode (SP) Classic vintage spring reverb similar to that of an actual spring reverb tank. From very short and small room reverb effect, to vintage surf and all the way to glorious splash & ‘boingy’ spring reverb.
