    Timely topic...I've been researching pedals, lately.

    There are some really nice ones. I was set for the TC Electronic Hall of Fame, but then I checked out some videos of Neunaber's "WET" reverb:

    http://www.neunabertechnology.com/wet-reverb

    I like the Tele and jazz guitar videos. The thing that I love is that it sounds GREAT and it's very simple to use. Seems like it would be great for stage work...especially in low lighting situations.

    If I get one, I'm getting that one. Haven't pulled the trigger yet because I like the spring on my Boogie...but it's limited.

    My Glaswerks head has a great sounding built in reverb but I do prefer the sound, tone, vibe, and feel of the amp with the loop engaged and a reverb pedal in the loop. I use a WET Reverb or of late a G-Labs DR-3 Dual Reverb along with 2 - 180 lengths of coax cable. (send and return) The amp sounds great as is. Just prefer the additional "smoothness" that the loop, the pedal, and the cable runs supply.

    Edited to add that you REALLY need to check out the G-Labs DR-3 Dual Reverb as an alternative to your amps built in reverb.

    :)

    I'm using a Roctron Cyborg with my Emplexador. My only beef is that the effect is not noticable when strings are hit lightly, but very noticable when chords are hit. Is this how all digital reverbs work?

    I use a Malekko Spring Chicken in the loop of my Splawn Nitro. Sounds pretty good!

    I use the Wet Reverb pedal by Neunaber Technology. Love it. Sold my Lee Jackson Mr. Springgy which is also fantastic, but the Wet was a bit more to my liking.

    I use an RV5 with my AC30. The modulated reverb is awesome. But I use it really heavy too, so not an "always on"

    wow. a lot more than I thought actually. Some good points. That Glabs seems really neat.

    Im alwasy wanting "more" from the amps reverb, but it always seems to let me a little down.

    VerbZilla since most of my amps don't have reverb.

    i use a Hall of Fame instead of my Shiva's reverb because i'm not looking for the spring reverb sound. plus the reverb circuit loads down the amp too much. i actually pulled the whole tank out.

    Hermida Reverb. I am moving away from in amp reverbs and effects loops, although I don't think they affect tone too much, if they do at all it is worth buying the Hermida instead, its only $99.

    I prefer a great reverb pedal over most onboard verbs because I like pretty ambient and large sounding rooms and halls.

    Although I have a few amps with fantastic springs verbs onboard that sound great when I plug straight in and no pedals. The ones worth mentioning: TR Classic Reverb, Bruno UG30R, Pure 64 MS-50, and actually I love the digital Hall reverb on the Bogner Alchemists.

    Hermida Reverb with my tweeds, not all the time and never when gigging. Just at home on lower volumes. Maybe 10 to 20% of the time max.
