I need to get a reverb. Ive always used Holy Grails, they're simple, and sound good; but now I dont really want that big sheet metal box on my board, and i dont like the nano's. Ive been checking out the RV7, and may order one (i can return it to a store if i dont like it, but its cheaper at a store in another state). Im apprihetious though. Im always very wary of customer reviews, especially on merchants websites. After you read enough of them; you get to get a reading on them; they give out signals. The same way dating did a few years ago when online dating was going mad, and id go on4 dates in a week; after a few, you learn to pick up sublte signs as to who's the psyco, who's probably privately nursing a drug habit, etc. The biggest thing im wary of are reviewers who havent had much experience with other pedals; they think everything is awesome. This jumped out when people compared it to the Boss RV5, and saying as good as the Boss was; this was better. I owned a Boss RV5 for 2 weeks, played it for a couple days. It was just cold, icy, sterile, and IMO; if it didnt have the tone knob so i could dial back some highs; i wouldnt have used it for the couple days. With that in mind; how are the Hardwires? I dont fly off into heaven on the wings of reverb; so dont need soaring features that others do, though i like having them there once in a while (I think id get more use out of the "reverse" on the reverb than i ever have on any delay). My only concern is tone, thats it; i dont care how it looks, power consumption, etc/ just let me know, if im happy with a Grail, but not a Boss, can i be okay with the Hardwire. I know i should try something before i buy it; but its not going to happen, so give me your experience.
