I'm borrowing one from a friend right now. Sounds awesome to me. I still prefer my Wet simply because it's already got one of the best reverb sounds out there and is extremely easy to tweak, while also sounding "juicier" to me as well, but still the Eventide has some of the best sounding reverb algorithms I've ever heard. It's spring mode sounds more authentic to me than the Hall of Fame, Silver Spring, or Flint that I have, and the sheer amount of sounds you can pull from it that aren't just reverbs is ridiculous. As far as the Eventide clipping? I don't know anything about that, but I know that even in the loop of my Vox AC30CC2 any really big reverb sound from any pedal makes the amp clip. Run the same sounds in the front...same problem but worse. Run them in front of my Fender Bassman and the problem is non-existent. So, maybe it's just your amp?
