    pretty simple... I would like to add a good reverb to my board to use with my Orange AD30, willing to spend what is needed, but don't need anything crazy.

    is there really a sweet spot for price on these things? and how's the used market.


    same thing with a simple ABY... just want a clean switch, nothing fancy?

    help?

    ^^^ thanks, they are a little more than I'd like to spend though. I guess I just want something simple and rugged. nothing fancy, no blend/mix control on the Y setting or anything.... oh, and SMALL... I'm going to end up with an entire board dedicated to just amp switching and controls... before I even get to the effects pedals!!! yikes!


    or do those just not really exist?

    Loop Master and TC's Hall of Fame. Couldn't agree with these more...

    Another option for the reverb is the Hermida reverb. Not as versatile as the HoF but I personally liked the tone better..

    I think it's "Mooer" that makes a mini reverb with a spring, plate or hall, and shimmer setting. I think they're under $100. Boss RV5 is a great pedal with a nice modulation setting. The ever-elusive Malekko Spring Chicken and Chicklet are great if you can find one. Also, for about $200 the Dr. Scientist Mini RRR is what I use and what gets my vote, though Hermida and Wet get a lot of praise around here as does the Strymon Blue Sky (likely more than you are after). Happy hunting!
