It never hurts to add spacial depth to your sound, and that is what FoxGear offers with their latest entry: the Rainbow Reverb. Based on the trustworthy DSP FV-1, this brand new stompbox features five reverb presets.
The “Program” knob offers standard reverb presets like the huge “Church” and the classic “Spring,” but it is the pedal’s “RotaryVerb” that takes the cake, described as a “Rotary speaker right in the middle of a pantheon in Rome” – it’s hard to resist the temptation to try it. The Celestial effects is also intriguing, integrating the shimmer effect sith:
High pitched and different frequency harmonics (that) mimic a more effective organ/string carpet.
The “Multi” knob offers different functions depending on what mode is selected, cleverly explained in the pedal’s graphics through rainbow-style color coding.
The other three knobs, Tone, Level, and Deep, operate consistently In every mode, and we are sure you can figure out what the first two do, the latter changes the reverb’s size or – in Celestial mode – changes the frequency used for the shimmer effect.
You can listen to the kaleidoscope of sounds the Rainbow offers in the demo video below.
Smart dimensions: The pedals from the Foxgear Professional Compact series measure only 2,3” x 4,7” x 1,1”, and thanks to their top mounted jacks, they can easily fit in any pedalboard. Compared to other manufacturer’s lesser-quality, side-jack mounted micro-pedals, you can fit 4 Foxgear pedals in the same space normally needed for 3 of the other manufacturer’s micro-pedals.
Quality: Foxgear pedals are constructed with non-SMD components in the audio path, with analog design, and high-quality components like Wima capacitors, real Alpha 16mm pots, non-plastic trimmers, and a true bypass circuit that includes Panasonic golden pin relays. That’s why all Foxgear pedals are covered with a full 5 Year warranty!!
Shimmer: The Shimmer effect is a well-known kind of reverb tail that mimics the sound of strings or organ that rise up behind your notes and follows the harmony of the chords you are playing for an outstanding result.
Celestial: more shimmer! High pitched and different frequency harmonics mimic a more effective organ/string carpet, organic, dynamic and touch responsive, so creative! (Deep Control changes the frequency used for the shimmer effect)
Rotary Verb: imagine placing an old rotary speaker in the middle of the empty Panthenon in Rome. With the Multi control you can change the LFO rate to increase or decrease the modulation.
Church: one of the coolest reverb effects, uses the Deep control to move from your local church to a larger Gothic Chathedral.
Spring: emulate an analog spring reverb allowing you chose the length with Deep control, and Lo- cut filtering with the Multi control.
