    Not looking for boutique delay, just a simple spring reverb simulation in a true bypass pedal for around a hundred bucks. Does such a thing exist?

    Try an EH Holy Stain. A lot going on in that pedal. The reverbs are fantastic for the price. I'm using mine on a gig tonight.

    Looks interesting, thanks, but more effects than I need.

    What about for under $150?

    Any word on the MXR M160 delay?

    True - I never use the OD or fuzz (they are pretty bad actually), and very rarely use the pitch shift. It's worth the price for the reverbs alone, and the trem isn't bad either. Seriously, check it out. I bought it on a whim just to screw around with at the house, never thinking it would be good enough to gig. But it is. :cool:

    The Hardwire RV-7 sure looks like what I'm looking for. Some are offering free power supplies with them at this time.

    Mr Springy's a better bet for a few bucks more. I personally don't think the RV-7's very good but if you're not picky it'll work and it is true bypass.

    This is a point of view which I don't share, but then again I don't like the Nova reverb at all, no sir, but I do like the RV-7.

    My suggestion is to try all of the above mentioned pedals and then make up your own mind, who knows, maybe you won't be too picky, much like the rest of us who actually do like the RV-7.

    Thanks mr jzucker, with a single comment you manage to:
    1. Put down the RV-7.
    2. Insinuate that those who like it are not picky, or don't know any better.

    Or maybe I'm just stating my opinion. Sorry it doesn't agree with yours.
