If you know little or nothing about the device, why did you buy it?

It's not a bad sounding box, but it's far from stellar.  The primary limitation of it is you can have a variety of EFX so long as you want to have reverb with them.  Chorus?  Sure thing.. how long a reverb do you want?  Flange?  How much reverb?  Get the picture?

Actually I  have used one for the last 12 years. Reliable and clean sounding reverb. The plate settings with some of the ring eq-ed out is the best setting for me. Forget about other effects and just use it as a dependable clear and clean reverb.

Yamaha Reverb - Preset #1 - Edit time to around two seconds (1.8 to 2.2, depending on my mood) - Edit pre delay to 20 ms. - GO!

Yes, preset #1 (Hall) is the same on every Yamaha reverb made since the beginning of time. (1981)

Great for verb, not so great for other effects.  Bought one used from a forum member about four years ago and it's still going strong.
