Imagine taking the ice bucket challenge, but you’re dunking yourself in dreams! Inspired by the ultra-modern line 14 of the Paris Métro and its sleek platforms of glass, steel and tile that add all kinds of cool sonic artifacts to the space, the MÉTÉORE™ (pronounced may-tay-or) is our take on reverb.
We’ve kept your original signal path analog and pure, while giving you overdrive and regeneration controls to take you from spring reverb sounds to something much bigger. The controls are very interactive with each other, and as per Caroline tradition, this pedal can get VERY loud. You know, something something power, responsibility, blah blah blah…
Your pedal was dreamed, designed and created at our small batch distortery™
in Columbia, S.C. Thank you for supporting our work.
ATTACK: Sets the amount of gain in the preamp, allowing you to boost or overdrive the reverb.
SIZE: Establishes the inital reverberation.
REGENERATION: Extends the decay and adds overtones; set both this and SIZE high and the pedal can run away and self oscillate.
LEVEL: Sets the overall volume of the effect relative to your original signal.
DARK/BRIGHT: This toggle sets the overall voice.
HAVOC: Holding down this switch can create extended, seemingly infinite holds, gradual runaways or instant collapse, depending on the SIZE setting. Releasing it will return the effect to the level of the REGENERATION control.
This pedal is either powered by battery or by a 9V DC power supply.
