Catalinbread Cloak Room Reverb with Shimmer Pedal

At its core, the Cloak is a room-style reverb that sounds amazing on its own, but with a twist of the Shimmer knob, rich, harmonically-laden overtones creep in, emphasizing three different orders of harmonics within the trails. A specially-designed low-pass filter steps in and smooths the harmonics out before they get too out of hand and wreck up the signal path. The size of the room can be effortlessly dialed in, from a cramped broom closet to as close to infinity as we can possibly muster. This comes in handy when deciding on which type of switching you prefer; the Cloak offers up true bypass switching that cuts off the reverb trails when the Cloak is disengaged, or buffered bypass, which keeps the decay going even after switching off your pick. Either way, you slice it, the Cloak is ready to impart a little black magic unto your rig.

Internal Trails Switch

This mode is buffered, and the preamp will be active even in bypass. It is called Trails mode because the reverb signal will continue to decay even after the Cloak is switched off. Removing the back panel gives you the option to turn the Cloak into true bypass mode. In this mode, your signal is unaffected by the Cloak when it is turned off. However, turning off the Cloak will immediately cut off the reverb signal.


The room size knob simultaneously adjusts both reverb decay length and a slight gain enhancement for more natural decay. Mix Knob adjusts the amount of dry signal present in the output, from 100 percent dry to 100 percent wet. High Cut knob cuts higher-order harmonics from the signal to soften the edges at higher Shimmer settings.

The shimmer knob mixes the amount of shimmer present in the room reverb. Fully CCW gives you a rich room reverb and fully CW serves up a harmonically rich shimmer.

Power Supply

The Cloak runs from 9 to 18 volts using a standard DC center-negative power supply for pedals. Make sure you’re using a supply that provides at least 100mA. 9 volts will sound great all around. But if you want even more output and an even healthier boost to your dry signal with increased headroom, try all the way up to 18 volts! The Cloak does not run on batteries.
