Responding to requests by pedalboard users for a compact pedal that includes plate reverb, Electro-Harmonix has added the Holy Grail Neo to its lineup. The pedal is housed in EHX’s die-cast nano chassis and also features the perennially popular spring and hall reverbs.
A three-position toggle switch lets the user select the reverb style and the Reverb knob acts as a wet/dry control. As it is turned clockwise, more reverb and less dry instrument can be heard.
The Holy Grail Neo is equipped with True Bypass to ensure maximum signal path integrity when the effect is in bypass mode. It can be powered by a 9 Volt battery and is shipped with an EHX9.6DC power supply. The U.S. List Price is $163.37.
EHX’s current reverb pedal lineup includes the compact Holy Grail (Spring, Hall and Flerb, i.e. reverb+flanging), the slightly larger Holy Grail Plus (Spring, Hall, Flerb and Room), the Holy Grail Max (Spring, Hall, Reverse and Plate) and the award winning Cathedral Stereo Reverb (nine different studio-quality programs).
