Af­ter the pop­u­lar Car­bon Copy ana­logue de­lay, it’s MXR’s turn to tackle reverb. The M300 puts six types (Plate, Spring, Epic, Mod, Room, Pad) into one of its stan­dard en­clo­sures, all called up by press­ing the Tone knob, which cy­cles the se­lec­tion.

In nor­mal use it’s a mono pedal, but it has a stereo mode that in­volves the use of TRS split­ter cables. You also get the op­tion of by­pass modes that ei­ther stop the ef­fect dead or let it de­cay nat­u­rally af­ter by­pass.

Of the re­verbs, the Spring set­ting sounds nicely au­then­tic, Epic will give you a mas­sive sound for spacey so­los, and Mod adds a touch of cho­rus, but Pad uses up and down oc­taves for a huge shim­mery sound with the flavour of an or­gan through a ro­tary speaker be­hind your gui­tar. Fur­ther­more, all sounds have the per­for­mance op­tion of an ex­pres­sion pedal mor­ph­ing be­tween two sets of knob set­tings. [TC]
