80s digital reverb/exciter. Big sound in a small box, plus interesting digital distortion possibilities.

Video below.

Sounds as you might expect: like a cheap recreation of one setting on an AMS. You may or may not regard this as a good thing; we do! It’s pretty big and boomy, and at higher settings we use it as another method for mangling sounds (we’ve got other boxes to use if we actually want subtle/realistic reverb). And the functionality (mono/stereo, wet/dry etc) is good – see the spec below.

Predictably we’ve also abused it by overloading the inputs, and you can get some great low-fi digital distortion out of it with some signals.

CONDITION: Boxed and appears to be virtually unused. Mint condition. Japanese PSU and paperwork present.

Tested and working as it should.


  • Type: Multi Effect Processor (Digital Reverb, Exciter)
  • Input/Output (TRS 1/4): Mono input, Stereo input (L/R) , Output (L-Mono/R)

  • Switches on the back side – Exciter mode (mode1/2), Dry signal mix (on/off), Reverb phase (normal/reverse), power (on/off)
