    Anyone got experience with any of 'em? Is cheap also cheap sounding? Not looking to spend a bunch but I don't want anything crappy sounding either.

    thanks,

    Bruce

    DigiTech DigiVerb Digital Reverb maybe? Still not cheap but it gets a lot of good reviews from people.

    Tech 21 Boost RVB, not the cheapest but worth every penny

    What sound(s), specifically, are you looking for?

    All I know in reverb was when I owned a new 71 Twin. So at a minimum I'd like to be able to recreate that reverb.

    Hermida Reverb. Reasonable price, 100 bucks or so. Excellent reverb sound, very much the equivalent of old fender combos. I like these enough to own two of them, and use them as much as my big dog reverb tank (Victoria Reverberato.)

    On the cheap (under $100) the Digitech Digiverb isn't bad, but it depends on the type of music you play. This pedal will definitely appeal to you if you're into ambient stuff like dreampop/shoegaze or post-rock music. It's spring reverb sucks, in my opinion

    Now if you're willing to spend a bit more I highly recommend the Tech 21 Boost RVB. No preset modes to deal with, so all you do is tweek the knobs to get the amount of reverb you want. Sells for $150, but sounds great.

    I love my GGG/Hermida Reverb.

    It sounds a little digital at higher settings but it's perfect for what I need (reverb from pedalboard for use gigging)

    I think the Boss:hide RV-5 is great. The Modulated Reverb is stellar & I'm not a huge Boss fan.

    I agree the RV-5 modulated reverb is killer.

    BUT I don't really like the other sounds on it, so it remains on the MOD setting.

    I am hoping for a VerbFactor from Eventide.

    Cheers

    I've had a EHX Holy Grail (not the Nano- the big boxed one) for a few years now and I dig it. But, if I were in the market for a reverb pedal today, I'd check out the Malekko Chicklet.

    No, not yet.

    I watched some more videos and decided there was not enough for me personally to make me jump, but that infinity is really cool.

    I keep checking with the local shop that stocks EHX to see if they have one for me to try.... no luck so far.

    Have you tried one yet?

    Cheers

    +1. This is the reverb im currently using and i think it sounds great. got it for 80 bux used. Eventually i would like to step it up a notch when price isnt really an issue

    BOSS RV-3 has four types of reverb as well as delay and delay+reverb modes. The RV-5 has more types of reverb, but I've stuck with the RV-3 because of its delay modes: saves space on the pedal board. I think I picked it up for about $70 used, 10 years ago. You can find them for less than that on ebay.

    +1 on the VerbFactor, that would be one pedal I would sell gear for.

    But Dr. Scientist Radical Red Reverberator is sweet as they come, $300 tho :/
