Do you use verb with your dirt???
If the amp has it built-in, yes. I don't have a reverb pedal, though.
With modellers, yes.
Yes, I use it on the amp sometimes or with my Nova system and the distortion/overdrive on.
I have come to the conclusion after a lot of wanting to make it work because all my amps have it built in ( Fenders from all eras) that reverb is useless with distortion and only applicable with clean tones for some stuff. Overall I think it is in the way more often than not.
Yes i do
Only when playing lead to give the guitar more depth since I'm the only guitarist in the band. I also add a touch of delay. I leave my distorted rhythms bone dry though. Reverb seems to muddy them up.
yes, but just a small amount.
Always. If my amp doesn't have reverb (neither do) I use a pedal (Malekko Spring Chicken) to get it in there. Not much, mind you - but ALWAYS some. Just doesn't sound like me without it.
Yep. With the built in verb, or with an RRR if not. Run it really low, though...
I use the reverb on my G-system. Not a lot just a touch for certain things.
Just enough so it sounds like you're in the living room instead of the small bedroom closet.
Sure why not? I the more dirt the less verb tho fer me!
All the time. I've come to the conclusion that what is needed to make a part sound huge is often time based effects - verb, delay, chorus - rather than the level of dirt.
What I like best, both for clean and dirt, is a combination of gentle spring reverb with a pinch of short analog delay. Makes for clear, 3-D, thick tone
depends on what you are going for...chi-lites "have you seen her" couldn't imagine without it. of course, that is more fuzz and reverb, than distortion and reverb.
fuzz+reverb=warm fuzzy feeling. i think that is where the phrase came from
I think heavy distortion sounds more organic W/O.
Just a little. As with all effects, I usually find that "less is more."
