EarthQuaker Devices isn't known for making by-the-numbers pedals, and its new Transmisser Reverb continues the company's tradition of pushing the boundaries, by offering "endless intergalactic reverbs".
At its core, the Transmisser is a modulated reverb pedal with extra-long decay, but the unit also features a resonant low-pass filter, which is adjusted via a Freq control and positioned just on the edge of oscillation for ethereal tones.
Elsewhere, a rate control adjusts the speed of the system-wide modulation, and Warp makes the whole effect more or less extreme; decay, darkness and mix knobs do exactly what you'd expect.
Hooking up an expression pedal also allows for hands-free control of the Freq control, although EQD do note that this "can cause time to disappear". Yikes.
The pedal boasts a fully analogue dry signal path and electronic relay-based true-bypass switching, and is powered by standard 9V power supplies.
EarthQuaker reckons the overall sound is akin to "blowing your signal to bits, shooting it through a black hole then beaming it back down on a cloud of cosmic dust".
If that sounds like your kind of thing, the Transmisser is available from 3 October for $225/£219.
