Fresh from Rocket Surgeon’s corner is the Ice Caves Ambient Reverb, a compact unit that houses a suite of haunting, mystical reverb effects.
Inspired by the reverberations enclosed in ice caves, the pedal is designed to inject chimey trails into your tone. Its sounds can be sculpted by five knobs – level, depth, echo, brightness, and Ice – as well as an ambience switch.
The latter toggles between delay and reverb presets, which can be tweaked via the Ice knob. Here are further details:
- Delay preset:
- Functions as an analogue delay.
- Self-oscillates when Ice knob is around noon. To keep things manageable, ensure this control remains below noon.
- Reverb preset:
- Functions as a feedback loop.
- Turn the Ice knob above noon for a glorious “icy” ambience.
There’s also an internal trimmer within the pedal which allows you to change the overall volume of the pedal when it’s activated.
