    I may be looking for the impossible but I'm trying to find a versatile reverb pedal that will do more than just "Hall" and "Reverb Tank" type of sounds. I used to have a Quadraverb and it had some very cool, non-traditional reverb settings. Do they make a pedal that will get really long reverb sounds (think textural, ethereal)?

    The modulated setting on the RV-5 is fantastic. Check it out if you get a chance.

    The Reverb pedal I have on my shortlist is the Radical Red Reverberator from Dr. Scientist, by all accounts it's a great pedal, and it has some unique features.

    If you've got two Boss size spaces on your board looking for a tenant try a Nova or a yammy MS. I've got both, but the yamaha wins hands down for trippy ambient/shimmer/reverbs and multi-taps.
    I use them both for soundtracks n' stuff

    Got a couple of spare quadraverbs and midiverbs in my dusty old rack too, don't mind them but they kill your signal big style.

    Jay,
    If you're talking about the TC Nova Delay, I have it and really like it. I don't know what a Yamaha MS is, could you elaborate? Also, I'd love the pedal to have storable patches.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. Any other thoughts?

    There are about 20 youtube demos on my site (in sig) showing what the MS can do with reverbs/delays etc.
    You can store 99 patches.
    Try searching for my threads on it, theres tons of info.

    I use one as a dedicated reverb unit.
    The main bonus is that there is no vol drop with most of the patches I have created because I used an 8 tap delay to reproduce reverb effects.
    the list of what's possible is mind bogglingly long.

    I'd like to know more about those features. the sound samples aren't very useful on that part I think...

    Another big +1 on the RRR! Do a search for it, you will find many threads on the RRR.

    Yeah I wish they had more guitar samples on the site, but most of the reviews seem quite positive. The first time I cranked that second Synth clip it scared the hell outta me and I ran out of the room!!:rotflmao

    The obvious answer here is Verbzilla
