Fuzzrocious Afterlife

When I received the Fuzzrocious Afterlife to review, I made the assumption that it was going to be a fuzz pedal, because well, their name is Fuzzrocious. Turns out, I wasn’t clued in yet on this new-to-me company, and that I was quite wrong about this pedal—in a good way. After a quick scan of their website (very cool by the way), I realized I was dealing with reverb, hence the Afterlife name.

Encased in a cool silver-chrome case (1590BB enclosure), with a skull and flowers hand painted on top, the eye sockets of the skull feature intense dual red LED lights when the pedal is engaged. The Afterlife can give off a sense of foreboding, which is kind of ironic, because there is also a classic old-school vibe contained within this pedal as well. 

The Afterlife is definitely a different take on what can be done with a Belton brick-based reverb; it can sound like a really good slapback type of reverb, but also capable of longer lush sounding decays too. The really cool twist on the Afterlife is when you add a second amplifier—which I highly recommended with this pedal.

The two purple knobs, R1 and R2, allow you to control two different delayed settings. R1 can be viewed as the main reverb setting, and you turn it on or off via the right-hand footswitch. Additionally the yellow knobs control mix and volume.

R2 is therefore the second reverb setting which features no dry signal, and utilizes the second output—located on the left side of the pedal (the other input-output and nine-volt jacks are all top mounted), and works in conjunction with the second foot switch. I found I like setting R1 for a shorter, more slap back like setting, and R2 for longer decays. When engaged via the second footswitch by continuously holding it down, watch out! Depending on where you set the mix control, you can get a crazy amount of oscillating reverb out of the second amp that dies off the moment you lift off the footswitch. A little counterintuitive to me: when reducing the mix, and therefore the oscillation, you turn the mix control clockwise.

If you’re looking for a reverb pedal that looks cool, sounds great, and has a wild, eviscerating special effect not found in other reverb pedals, give the Afterlife a try—it might just transcend your tone.

What we like: Special effects aside, I really liked the tone of the Afterlife. The controls are minimal, and I appreciate that—everything you need, nothing you don’t. There isn’t a bunch of different reverb modes found on more complicated reverb pedals. But, you do get a very realistic, amp-like reverb, coupled with that wild, over-the-top effect that will be guaranteed to scare the crap out of your audience—bonus!

Concerns: The Afterlife is really a mono pedal, with the secondary channel only working when the second footswitch is continuously pressed down. To some extent, I would prefer the second output to be less dramatic, and function more like a secondary “normal” reverb channel. But I get that the secondary effect is supposed to be more of a special effect, rather than an always on type of effect—still pretty cool in any event.
