Oopegg ORV-1 Reverb

The Oopegg ORV-1 Reverb is one of the debut hand-made 3-pedal line released by high-end Japanese guitar maker Oopegg called Super Retro Series. The other two devices in the series are a compressor and a fuzz.

Simplicity, high quality, and vintage sound are the three keywords for these streamlined gray devices, which, translated to reverb, means a realistic spring tank simulator with just one knob (that sets the amount of reverb).

However, there are a couple of internal controls that do the following:

Decay Control Trim-Pot: allows to adjust the reverbs decay time.
Internal Volume Control: adjusts the output volume level.
Internal Kill Dry Switch: turns on only the wet (reverb effect) sound.

We added the Oopegg ORV-1 to our article about the best spring reverb pedals.
