- One of the Best Shimmering Reverb out there! (By Cylon99)
Value Quality Price
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)

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

- 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)
