In this photo posted to Instagram, Matthew Followill shows his Mr. Black Supermoon Chrome reverb pedal. He says: > People keep asking me for pedal pics. This one did a lot on WALLS. It's the sound of [Muchacho](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfwMulCeHNw), [Over](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkeDAeok_Yg), intro of [Waste a Moment](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmAaWCFlxEE) and a few others. @mrblackpedals @eastsidemusicsupplymore
"It’s primarily this killer reverb pedal by Mr. Black called the Super Moon. I played my 1951 Nocaster through my Fender tweed Twin and some kind of boost. If I were listening to that song, I wouldn’t expect a distorted guitar solo. I’m just trying to mix in ingredients that seem a little unusual."more

This is SuperMoon.
Cavernous, vast and orbital.
The musicality of the Supermoon reverb has changed my tune from an attitude of "My amp’s reverb does a fine job!" to "My amp’s reverb will do in a pinch." Prior to purchase, finding a reverb pedal was a wish list curiosity item for me. Nothing more. My amp’s reverb really had me covered or so I thought. With that in mind, forking over cash for a "novelty" wasn't my highest priority. That was before I stumbled across the backstory behind the Supermoon Limited MS Edition. More than interesting, it was moving. Digging deeper, on the standard Supermoon, demos were inspiring. And now, with the recent release of the Chrome Edition I found that Mr. Black ticked all the boxes for me: great tone, super simple, unique, different and arguably better and limited edition. Plugging in, the shimmer is awesome. I got lost in tweaking the 3 knobs for quite some time. It was inspiring. All-in-all, I'm a light reverb guy. Surf is cool to mess with, but I tend toward simple. The decay really makes it interesting. And sway lends an organic quality that I really love. You can push the pedal into quirky places with warble and a seemingly vacuous chamber which is fun. Settling in, the comfort zone my tone landed in the range of 10 o'clock or earlier each knob. This range gives me enough reverb for depth, harmonics via decay & that rich organic texture through sway. All-in-all, this an inspiring box that provides a wonderful musicality and texture to guitar tone. ~m
This thing does everything I've ever wanted in a Reverb pedal. It can do subtle, psycho spacey, and everything in between. All sounds are extremely usable and surprisingly musical. It can even produce lush, swelling tones that are more akin to an organ than a guitar. Then, with a quick turn of the Reverb knob, you're right back in the traditional spring/plate reverb realm.
