One thing you can surely say about London’s Rainger FX is that it’s a company that specializes in thinking outside the (stomp)box. Their brand new pedal Reverb X is extra proof of it: it subverts an effect routing commonplace, placing an overdrive and a gate AFTER a reverb, rather than before. The results are very intriguing.
Our friend Eric Merrow shot this demo of it:

Owner and designer David Rainger came in person to our Stompbox Booth at NAMM 2018 to demo it, check out the video below.
A modern take on ’80s gated reverb, the UK-built Reverb-X is both flexible and expressive without taking up that precious space on a pedalboard. The Reverb-X Features:
- Crystalline or dark sounding reverb, with versatility to go between “live bootleg” reverb, mellotron textures, fully burnt-out spacerock atmospherics, and smouldering ambiences
- Dramatic “edited guitar sample” effects
- A “Distn” control dials in desired amounts of distorted reverb
- Rainger FX’s unique styling and mini-pedal enclosure with top mounted sockets!
- ‘Input’ knob and ‘Overload’ LED for optimum performance
- Igor dual sensitivity pressure pad (included) controlling the Rainger FX ‘send’ expression facility on-the-fly
