Hope this is okay, I posted in "Reviews" also, but felt this was also a proper place to post this, since I read a lot of them here after doing a search for reverb pedals here. I just bought an EBS Dynaverb. I had been discouraged, after researching reverb pedals...seemed (here and HC User Reviews, plus other forums I visited) that "there are no good ones out there". I had thought probably the EH Holy Grail was going to be the one I ended up with. I've been playing guitar since the 70's, but always had tube combos, and they always had reverb. I use it sparingly, but always liked a little, and turned it off for some "effects" or songs. I always just used whichever was built-in, and took it for granted pretty much. It's actually kind of ironic. I read so many conflicting reviews about verb, yet MANY of us guitarists just accept whatever verb the amp comes with, it's ONLY when we actually buy it seperate as a pedal we get all obsessive and picky Recently bought my first head-cab tube amp, a Fender Prosonic with reportedly HOT (+4db) effects-loop and no built-in reverb. I tried it at band practice, but for my blues, there are lots of places I really missed it. I actually get inspired by a little reverb... Tried the HG in the music store, but after getting used to it (after about 10 minutes), using it in the effects loop of a DeVille 4x10, and going back and forth with the DeVilles' own reverb... I decided I just didn't like it much. The most annoying thing for me were the reverb "tails" were WAY too long, and they sounded more and more artificial as they built up (from verbing several notes, or when sudden stop playing, the tails are all you hear). It might have been okay in a band environment, being mostly covered by the band...but. It wasn't musical enough for me. I tried many settings, backing it off, etc. I never got "in a groove" with it. I asked if they had any other GOOD verbs (did NOT want Boss), and they handed me an EBS Dynaverb. I tried it and I couldn't get a bad sound. Really, I had read reviews on HC that complained of noise (in fact NIETHER the reportedly noise HG..at least with some of the units, nor this one made ANY noise I could hear in the effects loop.) etc. but I was not ready for this. It sounded BETTER than the Fenders built-in verb, and in fact, I noticed it sounded better to me than any of my other amps' built-in spring verbs. It also has a tone control, that makes a difference but in any setting I thought the tone was fine. I did NOT feel that the verb was coloring my sound in any way. Really, I cannot say enough about this. I took it home and so far have played it for some hours...with my Prosonic, with my MTS3212, and it sounds fantastic. It actually gives me joy to play with it. Have played it loud, and sounds great. This is one of those pedals that I just liked right off the bat, and am sure I will keep for years. (others like that...Octron, Jekyll & Hyde, Deja Mini-Vibe (though I am getting a Mojo Vibe I have huge hopes for), H2O.) This one is simple, and I am happy with all the 9 different reverb types. Also it uses standard power (the HG has a special adapter...it is DC 9v center pin negative, but has a special plug...reason being the thing draws like 500mA !! and I guess they didn't want guitarists just plugging in on their pedal "chain" with that kind of draw). So, for me anyway, THIS pedal is just the thing. It feels solid as can be, and has real heft to it. Seems really well constructed.
