Reverb is an essential element in nearly any rig. Whether you're adding dimension to your sound or drenching your signal in sparkling reflections, Fender's Marine Layer Reverb can do it all. Multiple reverb types, including classics like Hall and Room along with modern marvels like Shimmer, make this an indispensable pedal in your signal chain. The reverb tails continue when the effect is muted, ensuring a smooth and natural decay.

The chassis is crafted from lightweight, durable anodized aluminum, and the Amp Jewel LED gives your pedalboard the classic Fender look. The LED-backlit knobs show your control settings on a dark stage at a glance, and swapping batteries is quicker and easier than ever with Fender's exclusive magnetically latched 9V battery door.

Create full and lush sounds with Fender's new Marine Layer Reverb.

Got this Reverb a few months ago, and have really ran it through it's courses. It's a very sturdy design, with an easy-to-access battery port (this thing eats batts, btw). The sounds are very expressive. Essentially, you get a basic hall, a more ambient hall, a very convincing 50's Studio room sound, a more focused room that can adjust to a pseudo-plate with knob tweaking, a huge modulated delay not dissimilar to the Cloud algorithm, and a wide shimmer. The Hall and Special settings are the best modes. I find the shimmer to have a bit of artifacts that are present when you crank the volume (but shimmer is far from a natural sound anyway), but aside from that, this is an incredibly awesome pedal. It provides the best reverb sounds that I've heard in years. Fender went into a "boutique" direction with this new line, and I really think the Marine Layer is the best of their modulations. If you want a traditional reverb pedal with a "drop-in-and-play" plate sound, or you're looking for that classic Fender spring reverb sound (probably saving them for v2), this pedal won't be able to get you there. But if you're aiming for an ambient machine, immense control over your sound, or want an assortment of reverb for less than boutique pricing, the Marine Layer Reverb is your best option on the market right now.
