Cool new reverb pedal with a cool new name by German manufacturer Orion Effekte. It’s the Kafka, a reverb designed to generate dark premonition and “unfathomable feelings” – we are in!

One cool feature about this effect is an effects loop that allows you to access the reverb signal only, so that you can apply other effects on top of it.

ATTENTION! Knob names are in German, which will require some learning…

Several dimensions collide in the Kafka Reverb, whose parallel world concept was inspired by the often inexplicable work of the writer Franz Kafka. Both the volume of the dry (DIREKT) and the wet REVERB signal are individually adjustable in parallel.
An innocuous accompanying reverb is just as realizable as the true nature of this pedal: deep reverberation without limits.

In addition to the tone (KLANG) and size (GRÖßE) of the reverberation, the reflection (REFLEXION) control allows you to set the reverb length up to an excessive self-oscillation.
An effects loop in reverb-path with send and return jacks provides access only to the reverb signal, here you open the gate to another parallel world. If there are for example further effects pedals (pitch shifter, phaser, delay, distortion, etc.) connected, the reverb signal can be dramatically manipulated and new, previously unheard reverb world arises.
