    From the guys at Meris, who came from Strymon, who came from Line 6, the Mercury 7 reverb. It’s only got two algorithms, Plate and Cathedral. However, it’s got modulation you can add, as well as pitch, which can do octave below/above, and shimmer. So really it’s pretty similar to the Blue Sky. It too is $299.

    It’s early days, but this pedal really, really blows me away. It’s dead silent whether it’s on or not, and the reverb sounds are out of this world. I’ve never heard a plate reverb (my favorite and primary reverb choice) like it, that’s this good.

    It’s not cheap, but if you’re looking for a higher end reverb pedal, I’d consider this, along with the Blue Sky which is also quite good.

      Cathedral reverb with 50% mix and high decay is a blast. Enjoy!

        Yeah this and a DD-200 delay is pretty spectacular.

            Awesome, Jeff!!! I briefly had a Meris Enzo, but found it too complicated to adjust parameters. It really needed a screen to be able to flip through menus and settings. I hope you have a better experience with this than i did with the Enzo.

              I know there’s more than meets the eye with it, but I don’t know how much I’ll be dealing with that. WYSIWYG is good enough here.

                There is nothing wrong with only 2 reverbs if they sound good! I hadn't heard of them before.

                  Yeah, I use plate 98% of the time anyway, so I wanted a really good one. For the rest, I’ve got an RV-6 on order too.

                      btw, this is my second reverb pedal this month, the first being a Keeley Hydra. Very good sounding pedal, both reverb and tremolo, however it’s noisy; hissy as fuck. So I did the first Jeff I’ve done in awhile, and returned it and bought the Meris.
