    Have not yet had the opportunity to try Strymon products...but I absolutely love the WET for ambiant fill and lushness. Because it is its own thing, as previously stated, I prefer it...no springy sound or anything simulated, just its own type of musical depth.

    I haven't tried the Strymon, but that's exactly how I feel about the WET.

    Tough choice... Hmmm... I'd probably choose the Wet.

    Love my WET, small, simple 9volt adapter and 2 knobs that provide a surprising amount of flexibility. When used live, you can hear it without it dominating your sound in digital sterility or preset "springyness". For regular applications it just sounds like really good amp reverb, but you can go to the moon and back in a very musical way if you prefer. For over 100 bucks more, the Strymon simply wasn't an option with the Van Amps stuff around the same price and a real tube standalone not much more.

    Not a lot of feedback on this one. I had a similar question as I have a Timeline. On the BSR shimmer demos I have listened to I think Ice on the Timeline...sooo, maybe Wet with Timeline?

    The wet is better for 1 sound. The bsr is better for multiple sounds. They are both simple to use. The wet is braindead simple. Bsr is more versatile. If I had to pick 1: probably couldn't, I need multiple verbs.

    honestly dude, the best thing to do is just take the plunge and try one. they're both amazing units and if you don't like one, you can sell it within a few hours here and try the other. but I think most of what can be said, has been said.

    It's true... I finally decided to buy the BSR and liked it a lot but was still wanting. I got the Stereo Wet shortly after and it was immediately a keeper, I knew it.
    But either way - I ended up keeping both.

    I've owned the BSR since it became available. I bought a Wet, used it for about 2 days, then returned it. The BSR has a lot more functionality. The upcoming Flint from Strymon looks and sounds great, too.

    How does the use of reverb differ when you use it for "praise" versus any other style of music?

    I've never tried the Strymon line but, I own 2 WET's and couldn't be happier. Although, I'm not a tweaker and I like simple. Turn amp and reverb on then, turn amp and reverb off.

    Like others have said, it does well in a live mix and with overdrive pedals.

    I like the Hermida reverb too, but it's not the deep/lush reverb that the WET is. The Hermida sounds great through a tweed circuit, IMO.

    Right after I made my post last night, I did just this. WET Stereo it is! Definitely not ruling out the BSR or Flint!
