EARTHQUAKER DEVICES GHOST ECHO REVERB V3
The Ghost Echo is EarthQuaker Devices' spooky take on the haunted amp-top spring reverberation units of yesteryear. This creepy analog/digital spring reverb emulation machine boasts a terrifying 30ms – 150ms of pre-delay, controllable via the Attack knob, for everything from a quick rockabilly slapback to viscous pools of ectoplasmic reverberations. When playing staccato, you’ll hear the tortured trails of the reverb, resulting in more of a slapback or echo sound. Legato playing will reveal a massive ambient “depth” that fattens up the sound – and look out, it’s right behind you! Phew, that was close. The Ghost Echo is true bypass and built one at a time by a team of friendly ghosts in the never-ending hall of funhouse mirrors that is Akron, Ohio, USA.
1. Attack: Adjusts the length of the pre-delay, from 30ms at minimum to about 150ms at maximum. When the Dwell is set to self-oscillate, this will change the pitch of the oscillations.
2. Dwell: Adjusts the length of the decay. This will start to self oscillate around 3 O’clock, the pitch of the oscillations can be changed by turning the Attack control.
3. Depth: Mixes in the wet signal with the dry, unity is around noon and everything after is boosted.
