Like Jon said, This too knocked my Blue Sky off my main board. I love using a shimmer effect with a volume pedal to create voices in the back round that swell in and out while I'm playing some of my guitar parts. The shimmer of the Eterna Gold Modified is simply the best example of this effect I've yet to run across. It's like someone listened when I thought about the few little tweaks I would add to improve the shimmer found on some modern reverb units. The builders treated shimmer as a cool little add on feature for the reverb boxes they were building. For me shimmer was the main attraction when I purchased their pedals. Now Mr. Black has shifted the focus from reverb to shimmer and did everything I wanted done. Comes in fuller. Sounds more defined even with addition voices and also works well as a backround for a high gain violin type lead part. I love using it with a Tube Driver. Power Angles. Killer! (Posted on 6/17/15)
Kicked my blue sky off the board!  (By Jon)

After some problems with the ordering and shipment i finally received this wonderful reverb. PGS was very good at resolving it i might say.
Anyhow it can do subtle to insane really well, and is much easier to change on the fly than the Blue sky reverb. It doesn't color your tone like the Hardwire supernatural. It is a modulation style reverb, but is a pleasant sounding one. I did not the modulation of the dispatch master, or BSR and those pedals turned me off modulation reverbs for a while until now.

I've been playing with this pedal for a couple of days now. The shimmer effect is awesome! Great for transitions between songs during worship. You can also turn the shimmer down and have a great sounding reverb sound! I can see myself keeping it on all the time. Still trying to determine where it sounds best in my pedal chain. I currently have it before my delays. KUDOS MR. BLACK! (Posted on 5/22/14)

Love the modulation. The only shimmer with mod that I am aware of. Very unique pedal and really does cut through the mix. (Posted on 4/30/14)

Just received the pedal on Friday and played the thing all weekend. This thing is super inspiring. This isn't my first shimmer pedal. I still own a Blue Sky. While the Blue Sky has a pristine shimmer effect, the Eterna is a bit more organic, dare I say almost analogue in it's character.

The thing that caught me as well is how versatile it is. It does a great hall/room style reverb. Just turn the shimmer mix knob all the way down and you have a killer traditional style reverb. I can actually see this kicking my Blue Sky off of my board. Kudos Mr. Black! (Posted on 4/28/14)

Mr. Black Eterna Gold Shimmering Reverberator

New graphic as pictured below video

 

 

 

Mr. Black has changed the game. Again. Using the foundation of the widely-regarded Eterna reverb, the latest and final word on shimmer reverb is here. The algorithm of the original has been overhauled to deliver a feature set worthy of the color gold—from impossibly long decays to astonishing shimmer swells. If you've been on the market for a shimmering reverb but haven't been able to make a decision, congratulations. This is the end of your journey.

The decay time of the original has been vastly expanded upon. The original Eterna's decay stands at 40+ seconds. For those players that require a little more, the Eterna Gold Modified has widened that decay time to over a full minute of opulent reverb. The reverb engine itself has also been thoroughly tweaked to change the amount of reflections created after picking, creating a fuller, richer base sound for the decay to feast upon. As the decay knob is turned counter-clockwise, the Eterna Gold Modified starts to shimmer-swell, and when the decay knob is dimed, swelling is also at maximum. Much like the original, a precise amount of shimmer can be mixed in with the shimmer knob, from lush bottomless verb to a massive sacred chorale. The pedal is wired for true-bypass switching and is set up for standard 9vDC operation.

 

  • Expanded decay: over 60 second tail
  • Shimmer-swell coupled with standard shimmer
  • Multiple early reflections
  • Augmented reverb voicing

Mr. Black Eterna Gold-Modified

The Eterna Gold-Modified expands both of these methods and combines them to create its signature breath-taking, multi-vocal shimmering-reverb tone.  A grand total of four octaves, coupled with a full wet/dry mix control, all-new modulation, early reflections, forward reverb voicing, and over 60 seconds of lush decay, offer all new textures and tones not easily achieved in a compact format.

Eterna Gold Shimmer

Mr. Black Eterna

The Mr. Black Eterna Shimmering Reverberator generates its renowned shimmer in a different manner.  Rather than taking the output of the reverb generator and creating a feedback loop, the Eterna routes the input signal into two sequential octave shifts and then allows the user to blend as much of these octaves into the reverb as desired.  (See diagram below):

Basic Shimmer-reverb

There are many effects pedals and processors available today capable of producing the legendary “shimmer-reverb” sound, including our prized Eterna Shimmering Reverberator.  Most shimmer-reverb is created by routing the output of the reverb generator through a pitch-shifter (frequently one octave, although fifths and two or more octaves have been used) and subsequently directing this pitch-shifted signal back into the reverb generator, creating a feedback loop which generates the shimmer-reverb effect many players strive to achieve.  The diagram below illustrates this complex process for ease of comprehension:
