This knob lightens or darkens the frequency of the reverb signal only, from dark and moody to bright and biting.
Turning the Decay control up increases the decay time of the reverb signal, giving you access to huge, surf-inspired ‘verbs that linger seemingly forever.
Increases the size of the virtual spring tank and the intensity of the signal. When connecting an expression pedal, you can control this knob hands-free.
Controls the volume of the reverb (wet) signal.
This is a three-position switch that alters the resonance of the tank. The upper position adds a high amount of resonance, while the lower position adds an amount that you set via internal trimpot (see “Under the hood” below). In the center position, the toggle adds no resonance.
UNDER THE HOOD:
This trimpot allows you to adjust the amount of resonance in the reverb signal while in the “Lo” (bottom) position of the Res toggle.
When the Boost is in the off position (LED off), a portion of the reverb level is reduced. This trimpot lets you adjust how much is reduced to fine-tune the reverb signal.

Connecting an expression pedal here gives you hands-free control over the Depth knob.
True bypass footswitch:
Turns the effect on and off.
With the LED on, the Surf Rider III is in “Hi” mode, boosting the reverb signal. With the LED off, the Surf Rider III is in “Lo” mode, and a bit of the reverb level is reduced. You can adjust how much with the Boost trimpot (see above in “Under the hood”).
The Surf Rider III requires a center-negative 9VDC power adapter with at least 53mA of current (not included). Almost all power supplies meet this requirement, but check yours beforehand.
