Limited Edition Descent Reverb
Posted on 21 October 2016
Since the original exploration of the dark caves of the Descent, the crew has taken their exploration into the never ending reaches of space. After exhaustive and haunting testing of their fallen crew members gear, results show that the search for beautifully lush and expansive reverb can be found in space. Their adventure takes them far above an uncharted planet with one of the crew members looking on into adventures unknown.
Limited to 35 units, this run of our three mode reverb pedal has updated artwork inspired by Felix Baumgartner and his free falling descent back to earth from above 120,000 feet on a black textured enclosure topped with a stunning blue to yellow gradient ink.
The Descent was designed to create ambient textures of sound, from thick and endless hall reverbs to symphonic shimmers. The Descent is a three mode reverb system; hall, reverse, and shimmer. In each mode, the user has the ability to feed +1 and -1 octaves into the reverberated signal. The Hall mode will feature a classic reverb sound that can move your signal from a small-room-echo to a haunting long hall- echo. The Reverse mode smoothly flips your signal to playback unique responses and can be manipulated with pre-delay time controls. Shimmer mode highlights the octave features, dry signal, -1, and +1 to mix in your signal and creates a symphony of sound.
The Descent offers you eight controls to precisely hone in your perfect reverb. In addition, the user can use an auxiliary momentary switch in the fav input to switch the pedal on/off and/or save presets. If you have an already crowded pedal board, you can set your Descent at the back of the board and run a small SPST switch to the front of the board so you don’t lose valuable real estate. The Fav input requires a TRS cable to be used. The expression pedal control works with most on-the-shelf expression pedals. This feature allows the user to set the high and low parameters of each control and then fade in and out the those controls by moving your foot up or down on the expression pedal.
