ENDLESS REVERB
Andy Green Pedals' Seaverb

A

ndy Green offers "basic building
blocks" of tone - a concise lineup of
effects including distortion, overdrive, fuzz,
and reverb.
One of those blocks measures 4.75" x 2.5
x 1.625" and is painted with a surf scene
riffing on the iconic Endless Summer film
poster. The Seaverb is a hand-assembled
spring-reverb simulation with a slew of
chassis-mounted components - pots,
Switchcraft jacks, 9-volt power, and truebypass footswitch with green LED. Controls
include a Depth knob for dialing in the mix
of reverb and dry signal, and a Shine knob
for the reverb tone and dwell.
The Seaverb was tested with a Fender
Custom Shop 1960 reissue Strat loaded with
a trio of Custom Shop pickups and a 15watt Fender Blues Junior 1x12, and its tone
proved to be classic blackface-style spring
reverb with a very authentic, slightly trashy
splash to the top end and an abundance

of clear smooth decay. The Depth control
dives deeper into an ambient wash of cool,
old-school reverb while maintaining the
amp's natural tone and clarity - without
washing-out the sound or losing definition
and presence. The Shine control acts like a
dwell control on a traditional spring reverb
unit and does a great job of controlling the
top-end decay and reverb tone.
One thing missing from the Seaverb
that's prevalent on too many other reverb
pedals is background noise. The Seaverb is
very quiet, adding little or no background
to the signal. Its overall analog flavor and
tone give it a more-musical, "sweet" sound
without that sterile digital vibe.
In all, the Andy Green Pedals Seaverb
does an outstanding job of transforming a
dry guitar tone into a thoroughly drenched
day at the beach, thanks to a spot-on spring
reverb simulation in a high-quality - and
quiet - compact pedal. - Phil Feser

DIAMOND DELAY
The JHS Pink Panther

T

o mark the 10th anniversary of its original
Pink Panther delay, JHS has created an
updated edition that packs a plethora of cool
appointments in an attractive box.
Modeled after the sounds of the old DOD
DFX9, Boss DD-5, and Ibanez DE7, the new
Pink Panther not only delivers the crisp
flexibility of a digital delay, but a fine impersonation of a cozy tape echo.
Among the many features making the new
Pink Panther such an adaptable delay are subdivisions, modulation, tap tempo, and up to a
full second of delay. A side switch for Digital and
Tape modes yields endless pristine repeats and
warm, saturated compression. Global controls
include a Time knob to adjust the speed of the
repeats, a Mix knob to control the level of the
effect, and a Modulation toggle with two choices
of modulation as well as an Off setting.
But JHS didn't stop there. The Ratio knob
lets the user choose from several subdivisions - quarter notes, dotted-eighths, eighths,
or triplets - while the Repeat knob controls
the number of echoes, and the Dark knob

brightens or darkens the signal. The pedal, which
powers up with a 9-volt adapter, also has a Tap
Tempo button.
But the proof is in the signal chain, and the Pink
Panther indeed packs all the sounds promised
by the many controls on this small, rock-solid
package. Plugged into a Fender blackface combo,
position one on the Modulation toggle yielded
subtle shimmery chorus, while position two
added warbling psychedelia. The Digital/Tape
switch would prove extremely helpful, nailing
everything from those U2 tribute band needs
to full-blown rockabilly by emulating vintagesounding slap-back tape echo.
Overall, the new Pink Panther's ease of use
makes it a delight for the compulsive knob turner,
serving up the best of both worlds: the punch and
fidelity of a digital delay and the plush earthiness
of analog counterparts. - Oscar Jordan
