The original Caverns appeared a few years back, as an answer to the prayers of space-concious guitar players who couldn’t fit both a delay and reverb onto their ’boards. The Caverns solved that problem by not making you choose – putting both effects in a single box, and offering you full independent control of each.
It was an idea that went down well with fans of all things ambient, but Keeley thought there was room for improvement. Last year V2 arrived, complete with a wider case to fit in eight full-sized knobs and a new three-way switch to control delay modulation. There are also internal tweaks – the plate reverb has switched to spring, joining the existing shimmer and modulated options, the delay time is now at a usable 650ms, and you even get the option to select true or buffered bypass for every effect – complete with those all-important trails.
With lashings of authentic tape-style delay on tap one side, and towering reverb on the other – with the ability to blend them to your taste – it’s no wonder we said that the Caverns was, “Delay and reverb working together in perfect harmony”.
