Atmospheric reverb and delay pedals have a very devote niche audience that goes beyond the realm of electric guitar players.

The Quiet Theory Prelude Reverb/Delay is the fruit of a collaboration between two musicians active in bands that – unsurprisingly – would find this stompbox very useful: Bryan Laurenson from avant-indie band Copeland and post-rock ambient project  This Will Destroy You.

The unit offers a lush and dreamy reverb with decay control on the left and a warm, PT2399 chip based 1000ms delay with feedback knob on the right. Each effects has its own on/off soft footswitch.

The three toggle switches turn trails mode on/off trails, and trigger the footswitches’ momentary function called “Burst Mode” – which does this:

 Burst Mode allows you to change either or both of the footswitches to a momentary function. This means you engage the effect only while you are holding down on the footswitch, allowing you specific bursts of delay and/or reverb while you play. This is best utilized when the pedal is set to very wet settings.

The Prelude is a dreamy delay & reverb unit capable of both subtle ambience and washed out atmosphere.
