    I would be interested in others' thoughts on how to combine reverb and delay pedals....

    Does anyone use pedals from the same company routinely thinking there will some type of synergy?

    Are there classic pairings of these type of pedals (reverb X from company 1 and Delay Y from company 2)?

    Other ideas?

    Looking to upgrade this part of my gear in 2019 and looking for any advice.
    Thanks!

    Lately I just use an Avalanche Run and another analog-ish delay (today it’s Black a fountain, yesterday was tonal recall)...but I mean there are no rules, I love a DD7 and RV6 combo...and plenty others

    I've found the Neunaber WET reverb pairs up beautifully with the Diamond Memory Lane Jr. As mentioned by Blackjaw, there are no rules, but that particular combo worked really well for me.

    I was looking at selling my malekko 616 mkii and forking out for something else, until i put it before my Neunaber immerse mkii. Sounds sweet.

    Hermida EPH3 and Reverb 3
    Digitech DL-8 and RV-7

    But also Adineko>Reverb3 or RV-7 as plate absolutely blows my mind.

    It’s all up to personal taste as to what a good pairing is.

    Thanks to all for the replies.
    I have been eyeing the the Walrus Fathom and ARP-87. However, the Belle Epoch also is pretty cool, which is where I started wondering if sticking with 2 Walrus pedals would somehow work better. I am guessing from the responses that I can likely get good tone from good pedals and putting the time in to dial in.
    Thanks again

    The two Walrus pedals are very adjustable and will surely gel very well together, but I don't think they would work together any better than mixing up other builder's pedals. Just choose the two which stand out to you :)

    DMM1100TT and RV6 have worked well for me.

    Find the best of both and use them. I mix 'em up all the time depending on what I'm doing.

    I play stereo with IEM's.
    I use a Timeline and a SA Ventris. DI is NUX Solid Sudio ( left ) and a Palmer PD-09. I love the tone and so does my sound mixer.

    Keeley Caverns for me. I use both reverb and delay sparingly. The Caverns more (way more) than meets my needs.

    Simple rules of thumb...

    Reverb after delay

    Many repeats on the delay, lowish mix.

    Long decay Reverb... Hall, Long Plate, etc... lowish mix.

    Any decent delay and reverb will do.

    I never use both. I either plug in my dd-500 or my Strymon reverb. The only pedals I use at the moment.

    I might have been misunderstood sorry. I don't own either of the Walrus pedals, I'm just going by their feature-set from what I have seen. :)

    I get great results with both my Replica and Alter Ego (usually DMM or EP settings) into my Supernatural's plate.

    If I want to get lost in space, there's some crazy sounds to be found by stacking the AE and Supernatural's mod settings.

    I have a Belle Epoch Deluxe on layaway and every time I go in to add a payment to it I try it out again. I can't wait to surgically attach that unit to my heart.
