Electro-Harmonix Introduces the Oceans 11 Reverb Pedal

Electro-Harmonix Oceans 11 Reverb PedalElectro-Harmonix has unveiled the Oceans 11, a pedal that packs in eleven reverb styles into one stompbox. Its effects are described as ranging from essential to exotic.

The reverbs include hall, spring, plate, reverse, echo, tremolo, modulated, dynamic, auto-infinite, shimmer, and polyphonic styles. A mode button allows for switching between three variations of many of the reverbs for further functionality, plus it has some behind the scenes tweakability.

“The pedal also features powerful, yet intuitive “hidden” parameters accessible thru its Secondary Knob Mode that enables the player to take greater control of its effects,” Electro-Harmonix writes. “An internal Tails switch provides a choice of whether the reverb effect fades out naturally or stops immediately when the pedal is switched to bypass. In most settings, the pedal is also capable of producing infinite reverb which can be played over with a fresh reverb effect complete with adjustable parameters.”

The Oceans 11 is available now with a street price of $147.80.
