    It’s so ridiculously good. Absolutely the best reverb I’ve tried in that form factor. It also has tons of control for such a small pedal.

    Nah, none at all, having a tone knob really helps with keeping it separated and it gets really subby and washy with the infinite hold

    I've had one for about two weeks. Like @PunkRocker33133 said it's solid with the tone settings and choices of reverb type.

    I searched alternatives and did the You Tube thing for what seemed like overkill and it kept coming in first compared to all of the like priced units. I'll be using it for both my bass and standard board.

    The options are more than you might need but nice to have available. I found one or two setting and have not changed it, but like I said I have only had it about two weeks.

    No noticeable volume drop or tone change other than the one you expect from the box settings. I have had no problems in/with the chain and no noise or negative changes evident so far.

    I don't know if I will ever use it live unless I channel Gary Willis and I unexpectedly sound awesome on a solo. I doubt that or soloing will happen any time soon.

    It had the sound I was looking for. Now if I could justify the Providence Anadime Chorus.

    I'm new to reverb, and was considering the MXR Reverb pedal for awhile, but the Fathom may end up winning out over it. The Youtube video with Quint Anderson was awesome!
