    It does (HRDx), don't use it- but it's gonna be sold soon.
    & I'm waiting on a WoodCross Thunderbolt 8 head- no verb.

    Used verb for over 35 years. Got used to it and a solo electric sounds a little naked without a touch.

    Oh HELL no. I used to play fenders and drenched my tone in the stuff. Since I've been playing dry, my tone, chops and technique have vastly improved because I can hear everything.

    I may add a little delay to the board in a dead room, but otherwise, nada.

    Onboard. Never use it. Use rack FX in the loop instead.

    Reverb is the job of the FOH Engineer. I'm not paid to complete his duties as well. I'll leave it to him -

    Both of my amps have reverb and I use it occasionally. Glad to have it but reverb is not a requirement and I'd be just as happy without it.

    Large amps - No Reverb.
    Weeny Noodly Amps - Yes, prefer Reverb.

    Best, Pete.

    Had it for over 35 years......I get plenty natural cabinet reverb with my
    '59 Bassman LTD and my Dr Z Carmen Ghia........in retrospect I'm a better player now as verb can mask sloppy playing I've learned.

    Two of my main amps have it, and a third doesn't. At first when I got the one without reverb I went searching for a reverb pedal, but quickly found that I really don't need it. I typically like a bit of reverb, and have for years, but recently I just don't miss it much when it's not there.

    Same here. To me it's just something that gets in the way.
    My Allen Hot Fudge w/Nuts doesn't have it, and the Goodsell Super 17 that's on the way doesn't either.

    I have a BF Super Reverb which. of course, has nice reverb. However I find myself reverb using less and less. Maybe just a pinch when playing at low volumes, none when playing above 3.

    Yes and my upcoming one will have it as well. I plan to use it mainly for cleans though but sometimes if I go for that processed fusion type tone then plenty of delay and reverb will be used.

    I don't really use any fx much these days though.

    My main amps do have reverb (Orange Rockerverb, Ampeg VT-40, AC30, Super Reverb), but I rarely use it. I prefer delay to spring reverb 99% of the time. I will say that Bruno's spring reverb is tops on my list. Definitely the best sounding reverb I've heard in guitar amp. The Rockerverb's is quite good too, if you keep it dialed back).

    Purely when I over used it as a crutch.

    No verb here, but if needed, it will come from a rack in the loop.

    It's an effect. Sometimes I use it, sometimes I don't. 3 of my 5 have it. I use some on each in different ways.

    I don't think reverb gets in the way. Reverb abuse does.
