In context o f this thread, what is the rationale behind having both a delay and reverb. From a listener perspective, or playing alongside another electric, the combination seems to make the guitar disappear into an ambient soup where dynamics are lost.
I wouldn’t have ever bought a reverb if it hadn’t come bundled with trem, tbh. I do love the reverbs in the flint, but I doubt I’d ever look at a stand alone reverb.
In terms of combining reverb and delay and “disappearing” I think that’s less an effects choice issue than an arrangement issue. I’ve had the good fortune (?) of playing in relatively sparse musical teams where I can eat up a lot of frequency space with my guitar, which lets me slather on delay and reverb while still being the dominant instrument in the mix.
The bigger the music team, the more likely electric guitar will be inaudible (in my experience). Regardless of effects chosen.
