Jeff Buckley’s Alesis Quadraverb

access_time First seen circa 1994

This is a rack unit guitar processor, that probably contributed the most in making what’s now known as Jeff’s signature sound. The best example of this sound is perhaps heard on ‘Hallelujah’, during which Jeff used the “Taj Mahal” Reverb effect present on the Quadraverb. He also allegedly played around with the settings, so it is possible that he modified the factory preset to his own liking.

During the ‘Grace’ tour, the Alesis Quadraverb was seen sitting on top of Jeff’s Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Trem-o-verb combo amp, so it is possible that he played it through that as opposed to through his Fender Vibroverb – the amp that most assume was his favorite one.
