    Are there any time based EFX like Reverb that are designed to go in front of a distorted amp??

    Dont know if this is a stupid question but was curious if any pedal designers figured out a way to get a reverb or delay pedal to sound good in front of a high gain amp, its just so much easier for set up that way and was curious of anyone has heard of something like this....thx!
