Earthquaker Devices - Cool

Earthquaker Devices/Afterneath-Reverb-Guitar-Effects-Pedal ..oh I really do not know what earthquaker devices   are but I know that guitarist would love to own one.  It is a reverberation malcine that uses a swarm of short delays to make wild and cavernous reverbs and scattered, short rhythmic delays with very bizarre characteristic. Wow , won't our friend Joe who is a musician loves this true bypass with an all digital reverb engine, all analog dry signal path and hand made one at a time in Akron, Ohio and it is such a small device but power packed.  It measures just 4 5/8" x 2 1/2" x 2.25" with knobs and has features stated below

  • Length: Controls the decay length of the reverb.
  • Diffuse: Adjusts the spread of the reverb. Sharper with more attack counter clockwise, more ambient and washy as you turn it clockwise.
  • Dampen: Clockwise for brighter tones, counter clockwise for darker tones.
  • Drag: This digital reverb is made up of a bunch of short delays, this separates the delay lines creating a stuttering, pingy effect. This is the coolest control on the Afterneath,  highly advise slowly turning this while you let notes ring out for a cool warped speed effect. More delay as you turn it counter clockwise, more reverb as you turn it clockwise.
  • Reflect: Controls the regeneration of the reverb, turn clockwise for more wash and echos, counterclockwise for less. This will self oscillate if turned up high.

A great device to add to the sound control :)
