EHX Oceans 11 Reverb

I passed on the Canyon delay, but they will be getting my money for this one! So much verb sounds and options in a small box. Looks like the poor man's Big Sky. I'm in!

The plate sounds like hot garbage.

The drippy spring sounds are kinda neat, although the “kicking the tank” sound is corny.

The infinite stuff is interesting , but most of the rest don’t interest me.

I’ll stick with my RV-6.

The shimmer sounds like a poor man's Fathom. I really like the infinite switch when you hold down the button, that sounds extremely useful. I have no real use for this pedal, but I'd like to hear a different demo. This one sounded so cheesy and overproduced.

Mostly interested in the infinite, reverse and mod/trem options, if the price is right. Not a big fan of any shimmer verb, they all sound the same and too synthetic for me. I agree the demo could be much more tasteful.

Looks like it's the same price as a used Cathedral? If that's the case then nah. Stereo and saving presets trumps this one pretty easy in my book.

I got excited about the gated reverb. Then, I figured out Boss has that on the RV5. So I'm gonna get one of those.
I really wasn't crazy about the rest of the O11's offerings.

I love my RV-6 for a small reverb pedal, but miss gating and reverse. This will likely be my next purchase.

I heard someone testing this pedal at Sam Ash last night. It sounded great to me.

I have one and I haven't gotten around to testing it yet. I used that recent 20 percent off promotion at eBay to get Musician's Friend to match it so I got the pedal delivered to me for less than $119.

Btw, it is a buffered pedal, not a true bypass ... but I don't think that should make a difference.

There are a few good reviews/demos over at Youtube from Ryan at 60 Cycle Hum and a long one from Germandude.
