I have a few moderately hilarious thoughts to begin with. I actually ordered the Biyang Reverb pedal before I ordered the Blue pedal, but it took it a while to make it here from China.
So why did I order a reverb pedal? Well, my main amp right now is an older version of the Laney GH 100L. Here's the link to it:
It's a heck of an expensive amp, so you'd think that there would be every toy on it. Well, it's kind of missing something, and that something is reverb.
So I bought the Biyang after seeing it on Ebay, and watching some videos of it in action.
Here's the photos of mine:
So here's my review of it. This pedal starts where other reverbs end. It can get a huge almost tremolo effect. I was messing with it, and turned everything way up, and my Sister started complaining. Why? She said I was trying to do what the Smashing Pumpkins did, but I was doing it much worse. Now you have to understand my Sister hates everything I do, but she was right about the Pumpkins.
The sound had that huge delay/molten ball of garbled mess that the Smashing Pumpkins had in a lot of their songs. But honestly, you can get a very nice sound if you put both knobs at 3 o'clock. You can get a huge reverb bordering on delay if both knobs are at 12 o'clock. After that, everything starts to go into delay territory.
I will say one thing that made me go "huh?" was when I put the settings up high, it sounded like a drum splash cymbal was being hit, and coming through my speakers. I have never heard anything like that ever come through my speakers. It just surprised me. I didn't know what to think of it. In fact, I still don't. If I was playing with a full band, it might come through as being pretty cool.
Something that this pedal has that kind of surprised me was the A/B input/outputs. If I wanted to have fun I could run two of my amps at the same time with this pedal. One of these days for the fun of it I am going to do that.
Like the Blue pedal it also has true bypass, and is built like a tank. It has the built in adaptor connector so you can attach it to a pedalboard or 9V adaptor.
So my vote is, I love it. I already have the TS Overdrive Biyang pedal coming at me in the mail. So expect a review on it in the near future.
