Otherworldly Reverberation Machine

With an upgraded silent switching system, version 2 of the EarthQuaker Devices Afterneath reverb pedal is better than ever. Go far beyond traditional reverb effects with the Afterneath v2. It generates a swarm of short delays to create washes of ambience. Minimal settings allow you to create room and hall reverb effects, while more extreme settings border on self oscillation, without actually drowning out your dry signal. Speaking of which, the Afterneath v2 pedal uses digital processing for the reverb while leaving your dry signal path completely analog. If you're the type of guitarist who wants otherworldly tones from your reverb, you'll definitely want to check out the EarthQuaker Devices Afterneath v2 reverb pedal.

Unique controls for unique reverb effects

Plug your guitar in to the EarthQuaker Devices Afterneath v2 pedal, and you're ready to conjure everything from short room-like reverbs to endless swarms of ambience. The Length, Diffuse, and Dampen controls will be familiar to most tone tweakers, allowing you to adjust the decay time, delay spread, and tonal balance, respectively. The Drag control is similar to the delay time control on a delay pedal, allowing you to speed up or slow down the time between the individual delays that make up the reverb effect. And the Reflect control affects the regeneration of the effect signal, feeding the output back through the effect to create deeper, more dimensional sounds. Sweetwater guitarists can confirm that if you spend some time with the Afterneath v2, you're sure to find dozens of creative applications.

New switching system is soft, silent, and built for life

EarthQuaker redesigned a number of circuit boards to make way for its relay-based soft touch switching, and the benefits are many. For starters, since there's no hard click when you engage the pedal, the Afterneath v2 is more comfortable to play without shoes, and its switch is built to last a lifetime. And since there's no audible "pop", switching is completely discreet. Experience for yourself the best Afterneath yet: the EarthQuaker Devices Afterneath v2.

This is a fantastic pedal. Take time to learn how it works and after that dialing in the effect you want is a breeze. It can be very subtle or something bizarre and out of this world beyond expectation.

All Around Great Pedal

This pedal is great. Whether you are looking for a reverb pedal to just mess around with, or to use as a serious part of your rig, this pedal will do the trick.


This pedal rules because it's not like any other reverb or delay. Totally weird and interesting atmospheric sounds, but can also highlight a minimalist lead guitar part. Move the drag control for extra warping craziness! The only thing I don't like is I have the V1 and it still has the clicking switch, rather than the soft touch bypass like the V2 has. It's not enough for me to care too much and knock the score down, but I believe I may in the future add my own clickless relay daughterboard to it. We'll see! Awesome machine!
