Radical Red Reverb

Hi guys

How do you guys like this as your only reverb with your amp? Does anyone of you use it on an amp without reverb?

I have a Sole-mate at the moment, but it takes up too much space on my board, so I would love something smaller.

It looks awful digital and cold that RRR, but how is it in real life? Does it have plenty of warmth? I will be using it with a tweed style 6l6 amp.

How does it react to gain?

Thanks:D

My RRR sounds better than a lot of on board Verbs I've played. It definitely is the best Digital verb in a pedal I've ever played or heard.

I use it with an amp w/o reverb and it sounds amazing!!!!!!!!! Tons of range with this pedal and I find it very warm sounding.

This was my BEST pedal purchase last year.

Windfeld: I went the other direction, from a RRR as my only reverb to a Sole Mate. Because the spring sound is essential to me, was the only reason. The RRR has its own warmth, a subtle and real nice little extra shot of presence or something along with the reverb. I should have kept it. A really nice pedal.

Thanks guys. I am not sure I am ready to part with my Sole-mate just yet, But I would love to try out that RRR.

How do guys think it works with gain?

Does the RRR work well in front of the amp as well as in the loop?

I heard the reverb was so nice on the RRR that I wouldn't even notice that there was no spring setting. I guess that was not the case for you mad_dog????

I run the RRR for shorter reverbs and the Tech 21 Boost Reverb for longer reverbs in front of an EL34 shiva and I am very, very happy with the tones.

I had at one time the RRR, T21, Verbzilla, Hardwire and Boss RV-3.

The Hardwire is good, but the RRR and T21 are noticably better in my opinion.

If your looking for long dealys, the T21 is a very good option, but you are limited in reverb types. It does the shorter stuff wonderful as well, and is much cheaper than the RRR.

the solemate adds treble. The RRR does add some fatness but it's good fatness.

Also noteworthy are the fuchs and the reverbulator.

I use my RRR after my Keeley DS-1 and I couldn't be happier. I don't know if you'll want to run it into an overdriven amp...I don't think any reverb pedal sounds too good then...but I can't speak for all of 'em.

I prefer my RRR after my Keeley distortion and they work great together.

Ok. i really need to find one. Where do I get it? I can't seem to find it anywhere.
Email the guys at Analog Haven about their stock.
They're really awesome guys-- they even sent me pictures of their stock so I could select which artwork I wanted.

Also, what jzucker said about the RRR is true.. it does color your tone.. add 'fatness' as he said... but I personally love what it does. My guitar sounds anemic without it.

I just sold mine cause I needed the dough, but it does add an extra something to your sound. It works great in front of an amp and with gain. I used it with a fender tweed twin RI. The rotating speaker mode is top notch as well.

The RRR is a tad on the cold side--on a few of the settings.

The annoying 'pop' after you turn it on might be the only thing giving me that vibe. But I think it's common of most reverb pedals, Holy Grail, etc.
