    I found shimmer by accident on my Hall of Fame2 reverb. I was just strumming a few chords when I heard that glassy shine on top. At first I thought I had a tube going bad but it was too musical sounding for that. Looked at my board and saw my reverb was different. Then I figured it out

    I like it for late night with lights out quiet time stuff

    In 2019, I bought an RV6 just for the shimmer. It sounds very sweet. I put it on the shelf when I got a Boss ME80 multi effect in 2020.

    But just today, I assembled a board using the RV6. I wanted that sweet shimmer. I’m running with a OneSpot power supply but it has a lot of hiss, even in bypass. You you experience any noise with your RV6?
