Get two separate channels of reverb in one pedal.

The Carl Martin Headroom is the most simple to operate reverb pedal on the market with a couple extras. This purely analog 'real spring' reverb has two identical channels, each with tone and level controls to select the depth and tone of your reverb. This allows you to have a soft, small room reverb on Channel A and a much more dramatic and dark large-room reverb on Channel B (or vise versa) The two foot-controlled switches control which channel you are in, and whether you wish to bypass the effect completely. It is like having two separate reverbs in your amp!

Additional features on the Carl Martin Headroom include solid metal casing, cool vintage chicken head knobs, double mounted springs to minimize stage feedback, and remote jacks for Bypass and Channel Select (which allows you to place the effect in your rack or in the back of your amp to save real-estate on your pedal-board), as well as your input and output jacks. Of course you also get that famous Carl Martin quality that you have come to expect at no extra charge. The Carl Martin Headroom runs on 9V DC, and as always, it's recommended you use a regulated power supply for optimum performance.

  • Two channels of completely tweakable, "real spring" reverb each with Tone and Level controls
  • Solid metal casing
  • Vintage style chicken head knobs
  • Double mounted springs to minimize stage feedback

    Comments about Carl Martin Head Room Spring Reverb Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This is the real deal, a spring reverb tank in a pedal. With two channels, you can change between subtle "thickening" to a washy surf reverb any time you like. It sounds amazing, as does all Carl Martin gear I've tried. Unfortunately I had to return the unit. They did not secure the connections to the spring tank very well, and sometimes merely stepping on either footswitch was enough to disconnect the reverb channel completely. This was the case with a brand new one that had not been moved around without the springs clamped down at all. It could be that I got a rare "bad" unit, but comments on forums seem to indicate that this is not a completely rare problem, so rather than exchange it I sent it back. If you're willing to do a warranty-killing repair yourself or go back and forth with Carl Martin to get it fixed under warranty, go for it. I'm going back to a digital reverb pedal though. My trusty BOSS RV-5 might not be perfect analog spring reverb bliss, but it's also never let me down.
