As musician that can't drive and a relatively busy schedule, carrying around even a moderately populated pedalboard has been proving to be a total pain in the backside. In addition to this I have a bunch of travelling on the horizon and the idea of transporting my current pedal setup on international flights seems like a less than ideal situation.

So I began thinking about downsizing my current setup. One of the constants in my sound is delay and reverb. I literally don't turn them off. Unless I'm playing a super fast bebop piece, and again that's only if the sound is getting too muddy.

I have been using a combination of Strymon Flint and Strymon Timeline for the past couple of years, and as you'd expect it sounds amazing. But the settings I'm using are pretty subtle.

This got me thinking... How compact a setup could I manage and still achieve the same sound. Now the most important aspect of my tone is this blend of delay/reverb. So this could be a totally aborted mission if I don't like this pedal. But I've got high hopes.

I've bought the pedal from Andertons with the provision that if I don't like it, I'll return it within the 14 days cooling period. If I do like it, then I'll sell off the rest of my pedals and run the mini rig that I'm planning.

I'll post demos when the pedal arrives.

Subtle, very natural-sounding. Nice playing too.

Nice sounding demo. Really chill and relaxing. Seems like that pedal fits your playing style perfectly.
Earthquaker's stuff is definitely top notch stuff. I have their Afterneath Reverberator, initially, I had mixed feelings about it and didn't like it. But once I understood how the knobs interacted with each other and how much versatility this pedal had. I fell in love with it. It's not an over the top reverb either it doesn't wash out your tone at all. You can get a lot of different sounds out of this pedal. Some players may not like it though as it keeps your tone and doesn't wash in reverb to harshly which is what some people are after.
I got a Strymon Bluesky as well, and these are completely two different pedals but work nicely with each other. Blue sky has more of the wash reverb ambient noise that can take away from some tone and shimmer sounds to it, which is nice depending on what you're looking to do. This is for those who want to wash away their sounds if they want yet this pedal is also very flexible and you can let it keep your tone and do many other things.
But as for right now, I use the Afterneath much more.
