Recovery Effects and Devices' Endless Summer is a real spring reverb in pedal form. It features a boost allowing you to make things gritty, or go full-on over the top fuzzy and psychedelic. Simply put, it’s the coolest sounding and most unique reverb available!
Start with the balance all the way to the left to get a splashy reverb with slight “buffered” boost. 9 o’clock grits it up and boosts your amp. Things get crazy at 12 o’clock! Dial in the color and depth with the brightness control.
The Endless Summer is hand-wired in Seattle, Washington. True bypass, lead-free solder, and yes, it has a real-spring-reverb tank inside! It operates on a standard Boss style 9vdc power supply (not included). Includes a limited lifetime warranty.

I have been looking for a good analog tank style pedal for a while. I have the Anasound (too noisy) and a few with med tanks. I want a pedal so I took a shot at Endless Summer.
This pedal is a little on the crazy side so if you are looking for a standard tank sound then this may not be your pedal. If you take the Balance or Mix knob past 9 oclock then things get a bit crazy. The pedal is a little bit on the dark side so in all my usages the brightness was full on. My typical use for this was 8 oclock and brightness full on.
The other thing is the tank is not isolated from the chassis and the stomp switch is not a soft type so engaging the switch also sends the springs in the tank on a microphonic journey.
A little to crazy for me I guess. Still searching. Thanks Dave for all your help.
If you're looking for a traditional drippy spring reverb, you can kind of get that here, but it would be a shame to leave it at that with the Recovery Effects Endless Summer. It's super simple, two controls, one footswitch, a range of reverb sounds. I like it when this one gets spooky and resonant and overdriven, once you get the balance control past the 11 o'clock mark. Back off the brightness to dial back the bite, crank the balance for almost-oscillating, dark hall/spring sounds. It's a true spring reverb with a tiny little tank inside, so give it a nudge (or a kick) and you get that splashy, crashy spring reverb. It's hard to imagine another pedal with two simple controls having such character. Built by a lovely couple who have a family of pets, you need to check out this and other unique Recovery Effects devices!
