    I have been playing my old 70's Carlsbro 60Twin more and more lately. It is a non master volume head which I play through a closed back 2X12. I was playing today and thought if it had reverb it would be perfect. Reverb is not something I use a lot of but now and again it can be handy for some things.

    I googled Reverb pedals and to be honest if I wasn't confused before I was after. I don't particularly want 15 different types of reverb I just want a sort of 60's vintage Fender vibe to it. Real simple and easy and possibly cheap as well second, third or well used even I don't mind.

    Could someone tell me what type of pedals I should be looking for. I don't want to spend big bucks on something I will use rarely just something that gives a decent sort of imitation of the classic Fender sound.:dude

    Digitech Digiverb

    It's got a nice spring reverb setting.

    For true fender spring reverb you gotta get fender spring reverb. You can get a '63 reverb tank RI, but if you don't wanna spend 500 dollars for reverb you can always get a Vanamps Solemate Reverb, which is a real spring reverb in a pedal. Here's a clip.

    The hall setting sounds great too.

    I just got mine today and the spring reverb in it sounds BETTER than the reverb in my Peavey. My preference however is for the plate reverb...

    I tried out a few reverb pedals when I was looking for one recently. I tried out a Nova Reverb, a Holy Grail and the Line 6 Verbzilla. Out of the three, the Verbzilla was the best bang for the buck. I thought it sounded better than the Grail and a little more organic than the Nova. The Nova was nice as well but over double the price. The Verbzilla has some nice options from Fender spring reverb to Plate to Chamber to Cave. Here are some samples of it (about half the page down):

    The only thing I don't like about it is the casing, looks rinky dinky but it is solid....

    The Digiverb is real nice, and they're under $100
