This is seriously more than just a reverb pedal, you have the industry standards like the plate and spring modes, which I have to say work brilliantly.
Shimmer is awesome! My only problem is that if you turn the time up too high, it's really only good for slow playing because the shimmer goes on too much, and it confuses your playing.
If you want my best mode it's the modulate mode. Oh WOW you can do so much with this!
Overall five stars no problem.
Go along and the good people at Dawsons will let you have a go. Guaranteed you will leave with one in a bag.
