One of the Best Shimmering Reverb out there!  (By Cylon99)

My favorite reverb pedal is Strymon's Blue Sky Shimmering Reverberator, but my goodness, Mr. Black's Eterna is absolutely the coolest pedal to work alongside the Blue Sky.

I use the "shimmer" effect for adding a pad/synth effect with volume swells (complimenting the keyboardist's pads, strings, etc..) The Blue Sky has a brighter ethereal feel to it, but the Eterna pedal has it's own amazing character!
Setting the shimmer to just about 9 o'clock, and the volume/mix at about 10, i get a really nice even sounding reverb with a slight (darker than Strymon) shimmer effect.

Sometimes, I have this pedal on even during solos or lead lines. It retains my dry signal really well, then opens up at the end of a sentence and tails off into a nice flowy synth. It's one of the churchiest pedals I have ever played.

Even as non-shimmer reverb (shimmer effect is set to zero), this pedal adds a darker wonderful reverb color to my tone. I love it!

As a side note, my Eterna pedal is just before one of my delays and the Blue Sky (last in line). The Blue Sky reverb is always on.. The Eterna is on about 65% of the time for many songs. It gives my transitions between songs a nice feel and doesn't break the moment.
I play for a church and this pedal compliments a keyboardist really well. If you don't have a keyboard/synth player, leaving the Eterna pedal on actually supports your electric guitar leads and solos.. It doesn't make you sound as dry.
For a large swell effect, I used a POG 2 (set for organ swells) into an analog delay (set for long delay swells), into the Eterna, into an Empress Vintage Modified Superdelay to the Strymon reverb (with shimmer on). Even with everything on, the swells sounded amazing. It was not overpowering, nor muddy. I set the dials to a more conservative sound.. but as I stacked on each pedal, the sound became more full, not overdone.

Bottom line, after researching shimmer reverb pedals on youtube and even trying some out at the music stores, Mr. Black's Eterna is one of the best Shimmering Reverberators out there. Not too bright, good natural octaves/chorus with a hint of high octave shimmer at the tail end (dial set at 9 o'clock)
I highly recommend this pedal. The price is great for what this pedal gives you. Compare that to other high end pedals ($300 Strymon), you'll realize that this pedal is below the cost of many boutique pedals. (Posted on 3/18/14)

I am amazed at Mr. Black pedals -- made in the US, trully boutique pedals, are really a surprise (to me). I think that the price is fair for such wellmade, great sounding, and durable pedals. This comment is valid for all four Mr. Black pedals that I purchased at PGS -- the Eterna, the Tunnelworm, the Gilamondo, and the Supermoon (Chrome). (Posted on 12/27/13)
Not a Conventional Reverb at All  (By Charles)

This pedal was not at all what I expected. I wish that I had done a bit more research on it before buying it. I thought it was a hall reverb with an upper octave added, something like a a Holy Grail combined with a micro Pog or something. Instead it sounds like an ethereal chorus, or to use Andy's terminology it is an aurora borealis pedal and it is great if that is what you are after. Brian Eno or somebody like that would love this thing.
It is a very hard pedal to use in a subtle manner. Even at the lowest possible setting it sounds like a giant hall. Actually, when the shimmer effect is fully up I don't think it sounds like a chorus of angels; in my opinion it sounds more like an organ being played in a huge church. If you keep the mix low it sounds like a guitar being shadowed by an organ in the next room a half a second behind. Anyway, this is one of those pedals that will be a godsend for some and useless to others. (Posted on 7/7/13)

Mr. Black Eterna Shimmering Reverberator

Turn your music into a truly cosmic experience with the Mr. Black Eterna Shimmering Reverberator. Lush reverb with up to 40 seconds of tail and an upward cascade of octave generation create a positively angelic effect. Simple controls put you in control or send your sound off into the ether. The Shimmer control gives you the full, reverberated octave effect or dials it back for a more conventional sound, while the Decay lets you tame the reverb itself or let it ring out for a tails of up to 40 seconds. The mix knob adjusts the wet to dry ratio from all dry to all wet for an abundance of magnificent mystery. As with all Mr. Black effects, the Eterna is wired for true bypass right here in the USA and will run on a standard 9v battery or a DC adapter.

Mr. Black Eterna Features:

    • Up To 40 Seconds of Tail
    • Mix, Shimmer and Decay Controls
    • True Bypass
    • Made in the USA
    • Standard 9vDC or Battery Operation
    • 4.375” (11.11 cm) x 2.375” (6.03 cm)  x 1.75” (4.44 cm)
