View Full Version : Reverb Pedal Help

Lookin for a good, natural reverb pedal. Did a bit of research on the board already... Though I'd love to play them in person, I don't have access to good places with a lot of gear.
Playing out of a 15watt Crate tube amp...The reverb is absolutely horrendous.
Play mostly blues and rock..looking for a versatile, warm, natural sounding reverb pedal (spring type reverb).
The Hermida Reverb looks good. Heard good things about the DigiTech HardWire Reverb.
nything else? I don't wanna spend a fortune (~$150).

The hardwire reverb is awesome. I have not heard the hermida, but the thing is, I haven't felt the need for it. The RV-7 has all the reverb sounds I will ever need.

In that price range, I would certainly look the Hardwire, RV-7 and the Verbzilla.

I can't say enough good things about the Malekko Chicklet I have. Subtle settings work best, and all it does is a nice spring-ish emulation. I often forget its on, which is a good thing. It just adds to the depth perfectly for me. Great price...small profile.

Hm, natural reverb? How about:
- EarthQuaker Devices Ghost Echo Reverb
- Neunaber WET Reverb
- Dr. Scientist Radical Red Reverberator
- Tech 21 Boost R.V.B.
Some of these are a bit more expensive but haven't gotten great reviews for nothing. There are plenty of pedals out there, I guess but these have been praised for their sound the most.

it's between the digitech and the verbzilla..both seem to have cool features that sparked my interest. can anyone who owns (or has played) one speak more about either? thanks!

I own the RV-7 andI would have to say that it has one of the best plate sounds I have found in a pedal. I don't care very much for spring since my amp has a real accutronics reverb tank in it, and yet, it doesn't get used (since spring isn't my thing).
I can also say that the build quality is excellent, and having the ability to do true stereo is a plus (if that matters to you at all). It is a true bypass pedal, but you can turn the "trails" feature on if you want, so it is all good.

Reverb isn't a real important effect to me... But I *loved* the Dr. Scientist Radical Red Reverberator, it sounds so killer. Not just a trite "spring" simulator (actually, doesn't even have a spring setting). One or two of the plate settings where something I never thought I'd like, but I did.

I'm quite happy with the T-Rex Tone bug reverb I picked up here on TGP a couple weeks ago for the bargain price of $75.

I have a Verbzilla and really like it. My only complaint is that it is so bulky. Another pedal that has a great reverb is the Yamaha Magicstomp. It too is a big pedal, but the reverb effect is killer and it has a ton of other stuff in it as well.
