Almost as long as I’ve been a musician, I’ve had an affinity for reverbs of a certain otherworldly quality. Last year, I picked up a Slötva shortly after it was revealed, and I still appreciate its outside-the-box character, along with its ability to compliment my guitar and my other pedals (especially the ARP-87), as obviously or as subtly as I like. I knew I’d eventually cave and snag a Slöer too, and I don’t regret my choice in the least. If I was asked to recommend just one reverb for your board, this would probably be the one, or at least a very high contender. Slöer naturally has the same character as its siblings, but it packs in enough new tricks, aside from the obvious stereo I/O, that I’ve found almost no redundancy between the two. Three moons dancing around each other……… in harmonious orbit. I’ve dialed in textures from swirling washes to nightmare warbles, all up to sounds you wouldn’t even recognize as guitar, and all the way back down to tails floating three inches off the moon’s surface. The only thing I would change, for the sake of anyone new to Walrus pedals, is shipping a more comprehensive manual (i.e., how to change modulation rate/shapes) with the pedal. The little “I love you” note was pretty adorable, though. I was also pleasantly surprised to find a tin of guitar picks in with my order. Thanks, guys. That should keep me going for a while. But getting back to the pedal, would I recommend picking one up? Without debate. Go, do it. And buy direct!
