Keeley Caverns V2 Delay and Reverb Pedal

Delay and Reverb continues to be a potent combination, and based on the many positive reviews that it continues to amass, the Keeley Caverns V2 must've done it right.

This pedal lets you choose from three different reverb types, first of which is the Spring reverb mode which replicates vintage Blackface-style reverb complete with tremolo modulation.

Second is the Shimmer Reverb mode which adds octave-up effect which enhances the upper frequencies.

Finally, the third mode is called Modulation Reverb, which adds chorus effect to reverb.

All these features work in conjunction with its analog tape style delay, with up to 650ms of delay time and wow/flutter modulation.

Another feature to look out for is its top mounted input/output jacks, which is important when planning your pedalboard.

Features:

  • 3 Reverb Types: Spring, Shimmer, Modulation
  • Delay: Tape-Style with Wow/Flutter modulation
  • Controls: 2 x Blend, 2 x Rate, Decay, Time, Warmth, Repeat, 2 x Mode Switches
  • Input: 1 x 1/4"
  • Output: 1 x 1/4"
  • Power: 9V DC 100mA power supply (sold separately)
  • Bypass Type: True Bypass (Buffered in Trails mode)
  • Dimensions (WxD): 3.7" x 4.7"
  • Weight: 1.02 lbs.

Pros

Astounding, as one user put it, nicely captures how most users feel about the Keeley Caverns V2 pedal.

It even gets some praise from bassists who report that the pedal works well for them too. Many also appreciate its versatility, thanks to its multiple modes and added delay.

Cons

While most users are happy with its overall quality, there are some who report minor cosmetic issues. There are also those who feel that the reverb sound does not fit their preference.

Overall

The Keeley Caverns V2 is a versatile yet old school style reverb with delay effect that will fit most playing styles.
