Fender amp reverb AND a Strymon BSR?

Ok, so who has a Fender amp (with spring reverb) yet saw a need for the Strymon BSR as well?
Is it overkill, or are the plate and shimmer settings worth it?

I use Fender spring reverb and a TC Hall of Fame... same concept, I suppose. The HoF let's me do big swells and more interesting things when I need it (flanged reverb? yes!), while the spring is an always on subtle effect.

Not overkill to me, but I also use a lot of effects for texture rather than relying on a single tone the whole show.

What style of music do you play?
A little bit of everything (doesn't everyone say that?), but mainly rock, alternative. I loved the 'Particle Verb' setting on my M9 when I had it, but it changed the sound of my distortion too much when using it on delays/reverbs, otherwise I'd get a Line 6 M5.

Thanks,

I have a princeton reverb and a BSR. I love the BSR especially for the shimmer effect and for swells, cause there is no way you can do that with on board spring reverb. However if you just need reverb to keep your sound from being dry, you could get a Boss RV-5 for around $100 or a wet reverb for around $200 and save quite a bit of money.

I agree with the posts already. In most cases I just leave the tube, long span 3 spring Accutronics reverb on my Genz-Benz Black Pearl 30's about midway on, but for reverb as an distinct effect that you really get 3D with and dictates the atmosphere of sections of the music, a good pedal is needed. I currently happen to have the BSR. I do enjoy how the shimmer organically kind of blossoms.
