The Mr Black Eterna is a stunning simmering reverb that as they put it 'sounds as if 10,000 angels were singing exactly what you were playing'. This pedal even without the shimmer mode turned up sounds large and can go on for quite some time with a luscious sound that will work with a bunch of styles.
The idea behing a shimmering reverb is that behind your guitar you have a pitched up version of your guitar that is also heavily reverberated. This pedal like all Mr Black pedals likes to take things up a notch and does so by creating a sound that sounds like it has a whole choir behind your guitar. This works amazingly well with large swells and slow chord sections that can take advantage of the long reverb.
It Goes On and On
Most reverbs will trail off within a second or so at most apart but the Eterna has a lush trail that can go on for 40 seconds. That is not a typo it realy goes for up to 40 seconds! Of course you can still get a shorter reverb when you need it but this pedal is at its best when given plently of room to breath.
