Budget reverb pedal
RichH, 26.04.2020
TC Electronic Skysurfer Reverb pedal review.

I got this to add reverb to a guitar amp that is great, but doesn't have a reverb built in. I've used TC Electronic items before and been very happy with them. This looks well built, easy to understand the controls, and the price was very good indeed.

Sound: I haven't really been able to get the sound I was after, which is simply a basic one setting reverb to compliment a guitar amp, such as a spring reverb. I don't need or want anything with hundreds of options, really just one sound that works, and then perhaps increase / decrease the reverb level, depending on how reverberant a venue is.

Pros: very easy to use, reputable brand, great price!

Cons: nothing wrong with this, but I'll perhaps upgrade to a 'Hall of Fame' type pedal at more money, as this may give me more chance to find a reverb model that works for me and this amp. But for the price, it is really very good!

Summary: a good budget option, although it didn't get the sound I personally would prefer

Three ways to describe pleasure : spring, plate, and hall!
Emile Michel Hobo, 06.03.2020
My amp has a physical spring reverb, which in itself is very nice to have. It’s two springs with a signal coil and a pickup coil, a bunch of magnets to magnetize the springs and make it work, and you can control the amount of reverb mixed into the signal. Pretty cool.

What it doesn’t have is the option to adjust the stiffness of the springs as in the decay time. It also doesn’t allow you to fix the tone of the reverb by allowing more or less high end. This reverb pedal does. You can also place it after the Laney IRT Pulse that I bought and run it into your mixing panel and you have your amp with reverb to record. (The Laney comes with cab simulation.)

You can also run it into your regular amp. I really bought this reverb pedal to use it with the Laney, but you can also use that adding another layer of reverb to your now tube amp, maybe a plate reverb before a spring? Or if you’re like me, you might also like the mellow tones of the hall reverb.

It’s affordable, sturdy, offers three distinct types of reverb, proper tone, decay, and mix control. It’s just an awesome pedal and that’s all there’s to it. If you have a Laney IRT Pulse, you do need to consider that if you want to use switches, you have no other option other than to put it after the preamp.

Splendid clarity
Benjamin I., 01.08.2019
Reviews about sound are not really needed, just listen to the soundbytes here and on YouTube, the clearest tones will be obvious. The chassis is all-metal with grippy sides, nice ergonomic touch. The knobs are oversize and knurled, another cool handling touch, but the overal shape does not handle as well as the less flattened Boss pedals. Just a detail, we don't manipulate the pedals for long, we put them on the ground and stomp them. The knobs are not too close to one another, you don't turn a knob by accident when touching another knob. All three sounds are very pretty.

The on/off switch makes a little mechanical noise but it's electronically silent, that's what matters. At first I thought the tone knob on a reverb was not needed but I changed my mind. When your guitar has a trebly tone the long repetition of that tone can make it seem like there is too much treble in the echo sound even if there is not too much in the basic sound.

So now I like that feature a lot. The battery compartment is rubberized and tight, it won't jiggle inside. The circuit board is clean with a clear layout, all the soldering points are clean. Steel studs reinforce the pedal close to the switch. The input jacks lock firmly on the Planet Waves, Klotz and Neutrik plugs, same for the 9 volts input.

The paint job is done right without the distasteful and sometimes gory visuals that are the fashion now. I listened to tens of reverbs here and on YouTube, the one offering the best clarity is this one, and by a wide margin, to boot. Plus it's among the least expensive reverbs, so it's a winner's winner, and I recommend it above all others of any price.

It takes some experimenting
LuLa12349, 09.05.2020
I saw a lot of reviews about this product (positive and negative).
To be honest I was kinda disappointed the first time I plugged it in, but after some time and some experimenting I learned how to use it to maximize it's full potential. People need to realize that this is a basic reverb and nothing else beyond that. In my opinion it works best as some kind of short bluesy reverb. Personally, I like to use it with my Boss SD 1 and neck pickup to get those nice mellow bluesy sound. Furthermore, it has 3 modes (hall, plate, spring) which you can control with 3 knobs (one of them is a tone knob which I like very much and it's very hard to find on even more expensive units than this one). From my experience mix knob works the best between 9 and 12 o'clock and I couldn't find any use for any position beyond that.
