    Looking for a good reverb pedal. Would like true bypass... nice verb tone.

    I tried a Holy Grail but returned it. Nice verb... very sweet.. but had some hang ups.
    1. When off, it slightly changed the tone of the amp
    2. When on, lots of hiss and some static.

    Open to any suggestions.

    Oh, this will be used infront of a Dr. Z Carmen Ghia. (no fx loop)

    Thanks!

    Thanks, but Harmony Central was a mixed bag of reviews. Most of the nay's were pretty consistant as to why they didn't like it.

    Any other suggestions?

    Are you saying you rate your unit less than 3?

    Checked your site out. Nice Blonde Dr. Z Z-28.

    Did your Holy Grail come in a white cardboard box or the old wooden one? I love mine(white box) no unwanted noise plus it's true bypass so it shouldn't change your tone. I've heard lots of problems with the old wooden boxed ones, I'm not sure if they were true bypass.

    Mine is in the effects loop though. Yours may have been doing though things in relation to other pedals?

    Vanamps Reverbamate is awesome. I used it on a Marshall 1974x and it sounded amazing.

    How about the 63 Fender Reverb?
    Not really a pedal, looks like a small head, spring reverb with 3 tubes.
    It does however come with a footswitch.
    Im waiting for one as we speak:drool

    I hear EBS has a great reverb pedal. Rated very well, plus its not HUGE.

    There is a new model of the reverbamate called the SOLE-MATE which now works for one channel amps, mixes the dry and reverb sound like a normal pedal.

    +1 on the 63' fender reverb! (john frusciante uses one) Even though the price tag is kinda' high at $499 its well worth it, Ive had the chance to try one out twice and loved it, and am thinking about getting one now, and adding it to the Diezel Ill be getting since it doesnt have any reverb, also you might wanna' check out the EH holiest grail.

    Have you ever made a post that didn't include the word Diezel?

    +1 on the Verbzilla. I use one with my Clark Beaufort and I'm very happy with what it does. It offers quite a bit of variety in the type of reverbs also.

    That's the ticket - reverb as it was meant to be!

    I have one too. Swap a cap & pop in a 6K6 and you have the swampiest wettest reverb you can get - no pedal can duplicate the sound of a tank.
