A few things about this pedal.
I'm going to adress a few things here. First of all, you can choose for it to be true bypass, or you can choose to have it buffered. There is an internal switch to turn the trails effect on and off. If it's off, it's true bypass. If it's on, it's buffered. I personally leave it off. That brings me to point two. If you have it on buffered (trails) mode, it will DESTROY batteries. I've never used one with this, because as a gigging musician, I can't risk it dying. With my Dunlop DC Brick, it works fine. Don't use batteries!
That being said, this pedal is great. The reverbs are natural and not wacky. They can get big, but they don't strive to. I've got spring reverb in my Hot Rod Deluxe, so I don't care about the spring setting so much, but it is good. The plate is amazing, as is the hall. I use the Reverse Reverb for a few songs live, and it's one of those nuances that when used in the right situation, makes a huge difference. The liveliness control is a must-have, because a lot of reverbs tend to get grainy at the high end. That doesn't happen with this one. With the internal voltage ramped up to 15v, I'm not sure that would happen anyway. Either way, this beats every other pedal in its class. The Boss RV-5, the TC Hall of Fame, and even - in my book at least - the EHX Cathedral. Just get it.
