Digitech Lyra Eternal Descent Effects Pedal : Review

Lyra Eternal Descent

A limited edition

A particular stompbox, a limited edition, that provides 7 tones. They are taken from the Eternal Descent soundtrack, a comic book/CD.

Controls

4: Level, Gain, FX MIX and Lyra.

FX MIX

Simply, it adjusts the amount of the effect.

Lyra

It provides 7 different options.

  • Crystal Cascade
  • Brilliant, clean and with a delay.

  • The Morass
  • Supernatural, mysterious and with the addition of the Phaser.

  • Ethereal Entity
  • Much saturated and with a slow attack, with a reverse delay.

  • Divine Lead
  • A Rock Distortion with the addition of an octave.

  • Lyra's Lightning
  • A very strong lead with a delay.

  • Dark Blues
  • Natural, sweet and with a plate reverb.

  • Crushing Chaos
  • A great amount of Gain and a Flanger.

It can be useful

Rather strange, but in some contexts this Digitech product can be useful to create particular atmospheres. As a whole, the final result is good. The quality of the signal is remarkable. As regards the price, currently it is too much expensive. 130 euros is an exaggeration for a similar pedal, if we consider the limited utilization.

    An important feature is a switch that divides the signal between the effect and the analog sound of the guitar. It is flexible and complete and with all the modern features that today are necessary.

    The equalization section of this pedal features all the necessary controls ( Low, Mid, High), and the Level knob is the only additional control. The Gain knob is absent, but the manual explains why.

    It works, but if you are looking for a transparent pedal for your guitar it isn't for you. However, it works very well, and can turn out a very valid solution to get a warmer sound. Much classic.
