    WOW. Is all I can say.

    I have been reading and hearing about the WET reverb for awhile now, and finally ordered the stereo version off the website (had trouble finding any for sale here.) spent some time with it last night in stereo. It just sounds so good. No matter where the knobs are, it's a useful sound. So full and lush. It was also very quiet. No hum or noise that I've had from other reverb pedals. I'm usually a spring reverb guy. And I know this isn't exactly spring. But it sounds semi springy to me. Just enough. I also have a strymon BSR. But if I had to choose between the two, I think I'd go WET. It's just so simple. And sounds amazing.

    Thanks to TGP. I have another awesome reverb pedal.

    Nice! I have both as well and definitely would pick the WET if I have to choose one. There's something in that pedal that is inspiring.

    I just recieved my first Wet too, and man I always have it on unless I'm playing some more rocky stuff.
    It is definitely absolutely amazing.
    I like the OP's description, very well said.

    One of my all-time favorites.
    Just got a new one after a short stint with a Space.
    The WET is more my thang. I gotta get some expression control this time.
    PS: RV5 (modulate) > Stereo Wet = haunting angels

    Are all of you running the Wet in stereo? I would like to check out the Wet, but I don't like that it's not true bypass, so I thought of buying the mono version.

    It's meant to be at the end of your pedal signal path and will buffer the output so you get the most optimal tonal frequency spectrum to your amp...don't fear the buff, embrace it.

    I rarely get to run stereo. Still sounds amazing in mono.
    Buffered is the way to go.

    I've got to agree on the WET being awesome. It's the first reverb pedal I've ever had that I just sat with for a few hours playing with. Just an amazingly well-built pedal with incredible sound. I love the pedal customizer software option as well. Cool feature.

    I got mine last week and it's a keeper for sure. I had been using a Deep Blue delay to simulate a touch of ambient reverb but this does that and more so much better.

    I'm looking at adding a reverb pedal to the arsenal and this one sure looks nice, one question for you guys, do you usually just leave it on all the time or more on clean tones ?? I've been playing on amps that doesn't have reverb for a while and got use to it but it sure adds some meat to a big clean tone.

    How does it takes dirt/boost pedals?

    I leave it on almost all the time - except with a lot of dirt.

    bsr into a wet is magic. I do like the wet on subtle settings as well for a small bit of air.
