Shimverb is the bestest budget strymon studio type verb... The rest sounded a good as originals or boutique versions. *that I've tried, mostly limited to drive pedals*. The eq pedal looks interesting... Love the ultra drive. Genuinely brilliant.
Hey guys, have a bit of sensitivity here- I'm trying to sell a ShimVerb! It's actually really good everyone!
Now that I've seen one in person (broken), I'm not impressed by the build quality. The pots are not supported by the casing, so if you tread on them - very easy to do because they're so close to the footswitch - they can break. The mini-switch looks like it has a casing nut, but in fact it doesn't have the necessary one on the inside to lock it, so it's little more than for show and if anything, actually stresses the switch (by pulling it upwards) when it's tightened. Pressing down on the knob also then pushes the PCB down which stresses it even more.Almost all of them have the wrong control as the main knob too - particularly all the drives, where they have the gain as the big knob and the volume - the one you're much more likely to need to adjust on the fly - as one of the small ones.Neat concept, poor execution.
Would they be good candidates for rehousing?
I've used quite a few Mooers live and I find them no worse than an MXR for accidentally kicking stuff and considerably better than stupid pedals like Zvex which I find completely unusable.
