Today, I want to answer these questions that I get quite often from ambient guitar players:
- Do I need a shimmer reverb or an octaver pedal?
- What’s the difference between both for playing ambient guitar?
- Should I get both? Why do you have both on your board?
In this video, I’m going to show you the subtle differences between using an octaver pedal vs. a shimmer reverb, tell you the different applications for both, and how I personally use them in my ambient songs.
Hopefully the audio examples in the video will make it very clear what you need to get, whether it’s just a good shimmer, an octaver, or both!
