Visual Sound's H20 is a chorus and echo pedal that I have used with electric guitar. While I believe it is designed for use with the electric guitar, like all pedals it can be used with other electric instruments if you so choose. However, since my experience with the H20 pedal is with electric guitar, this review will focus it's attention to this application alone. The pedal contains 1/4" connections for input and output, and requires a power supply which I believe is of nine volt power. It isn't a rack mountable piece of gear being that it is a foot pedal.


The make up of the Visual Sound H20 is generally consistent and easy to understand. The pedal is split up into separate sections for chorus and echo, each having it's own buttons to engage their sound. The chorus section contains parameters for speed, width, and delay time, while the echo section has some for echo time, repeats, and effect level. The delay also has a switch to choose between either a long or a short version of the effect. I haven't seen a manual for the H20 pedal, but don't believe that one is necessary to use the pedal anyway.


The Visual Sound H20 overall has a pretty impressive sound that is clear and quite luscious. There is definitely a reason that they call this pedal H20, as the chorus can definitley remind you of running water at times. I've used the pedal for recording sessions, mostly with a custom Fender Stratocaster a '65 Fender Deluxe Reverb, but we did do some mixing and matching with different guitars and amps to try to get the sound that we were after. While I like the chorus sound more than I do the echo on the H20, both a formidable effects that are worthy of use. Chances are that if you like one of the effects on here you will like both, as they do share a similar type of quality.


While they now have out a new version of the Visual Sound H20, known as the V2 H20, I've yet to have a chance to use it so I can't really compare the two. However, if they have succeeded in making a better version of the H20, it must be a very good pedal. The good news about the H20 is that now since they have the newer one out, this pedal can be had for a considerable amount less than before. While I would certainly understand wanting to go for the latest and greatest, the original H20 is a high quality pedal in it's own right. When compared to other pedals in it's price range, the H20 seems to have more versatility and definitely has an admirable sound even when compared with the best. In my opinion, you can't really go wrong with the Visual Sound H20.
