Verbum Entropic Hall

Verbum is probably the most versatile reverb I've heard in a while. You can get real dirty or gritty, or you can go lush and legendary with a beautiful pristine sound. There's so much control from width to colour and reflection choice, it makes it very easy to dial in a great sound within seconds. The Legendarism knob is my favourite, having access to the 'cleanliness' of the reverb is a real game changer!


Hyperspace is my go-to 'Trippy' Travis Scott type effect, we get some really amazing sounds out of that.


I've been using DIFIX ALL the time and it sounds like magic on guitars! Even vocals, it really helps bring them to life!


I am addicted to FireCobra, it's on every single vocal I've done in the past few months!
