Big City Music is proud to be an authorized dealer for Beautiful Noise Effects.

From creating long ambient swells of atmospheric reverberation, to stuttering, chaotic feedback oscillations overloading your amplifier. When The Sun Explodes is the end of all things.

The reverberation on its own emulates a classic spring tank unit popularized in 60’s amplifiers, with a variety of controls to shape the tone and length of the reverberated signal. The feedback footswitch engages a linear rising or LFO/tremolo controlled feedback loop, which forces the wet reverberated signal back into the input creating some over the top noise effects, as well as the boost footswitch which instantly doubles the amount of reverb for an instant wave of sound.

The output gain, with the additional clipping options of symmetrical, asymmetrical or no clipping selects between a range of gain shapes and amplitudes. The gain control can swing from a gritty boost at lower settings, to an overdriving blown speaker-like fuzz tone when maxed.

Expression input controls the reverb volume using a standard 10k-50k expression pedal, for hands free amplitude modulation, or use it in conjunction with the dry cut switch for ambient wet-only volume swells.

Plug any and all instruments into this box of utter sonic dystopia, for an endlessly reverberant, fuzzed out noise experience no effects pedal has yet to reach.

Handmade in Newcastle, Australia. With a lifetime warranty.


Master: Output volume control.
Reverb: Blends in the amount of wet reverberated signal with the dry signal.
Colour: Tone control of the reverb, left for darkness/right for brightness.
Decay: Adjusts the length of the reverb trail, as well as intensifying the feedback loop at higher decay levels.
Gain: Acts as a distortion control on the output of the pedal, anywhere up to half way acts as a gritty boost to an overdrive, everything above goes into fuzz territory, when the ‘reverb’ knob is fully counter clockwise the distortion can be used entirely on it’s own.
Feedback: Controls the intensity of the feedback loop.
Toggle Switch: Switches between standard feedback and a tremolo controlled feedback modulator.
Rate: Alters the speed of the internal LFO that modulates the feedback loop tremolo, from slow pulses to a stuttering chaos.
Boost Footswitch: Doubles the amplitude of the reverberated signal, creating an instant wall of sound.
Feedback Footswitch: When held down the feedback loop is engaged, releasing turns it off.
Bypass Footswitch: True bypass, effect ON/OFF.
EXP: Expression pedal input, which modulates the amplitude of the reverb signal. [10k-50k expression pedal]
Symmetrical: Even soft-clipping, which gets compressed and fuzzy at high gain levels.
OFF: Diode clipping is removed, the distortion heard is the op-amps overloading far beyond its limits. (Warning: will produce buzzing, noise, and potentially harmful levels of gain).
Asymmetrical: Uneven hard-clipping, harsh and nasally, a mixture between symmetrical and no clipping.
Dry Switch: Cuts the dry signal completely out of the mix for a 100% wet reverberated output, which is best used in conjunction with the EXP for ambient volume swells.

This pedal runs on a 9V DC (negative tip/positive sleeve) power supply, current drawn is 76mA.
