Dreadbox's description of the Dreadbox Raindrops stereo delay / pitch shifter / reverb pedal


Dreadbox Raindrops is a Hybrid Delay/Pitch Shifter/Reverb pedal that takes the concept of short echos to a different level

It is equipped with multiple delay stages and different chips and you can choose between 3 different play modes, where in each one you can have a whole new experience and alternative soundscapes. You can achieve from simple short echos, to long, dirty and lo-fi delays and from simple pitch shifting bursts to extensively lasting reverbs.
