    Lee Jackson Mr. Springgy! It's great. I returned my Hardwire immediately after its arrival, but I was only looking for spring tank style reverb like you would hear coming from a Blackface amp.

    I have been hearing very good things about the new Digitech Hardwire reverb pedal.

    If you search the effects forum for "reverb" you will get a million threads.

    If you're looking for spring, the TC Nova and Springy are good though the springy has no decay and the paint flakes off.

    Cool, another blackjack owner! How do you like it?

    I am running a van amps solemate in fornt of my fuchs blackjack 21: and I like it!:AOK

    To my ears they work good together getting some decent tone...
    The solemate has no large-arena-20seconds-hyper-reverb. It's spring of course. If you like that sound give it a try.

    Cheers,
    tng

    TC Nova or T-Rex Roommate. Professional, no-nonsense, no fancy graphics.

    love it. i don't play it out that much as i usually use my ods50. but i think if i put some verb in the chain i'll end up using it more on rock gigs. andy makes great amps.

    For that real spring sound, it's the VanAmps Sole Mate. I use mine with 4 different pre-reverb type amps; it's dead quiet, perfect reverb sound with all of them. The RRR is another excellent alternative. Not spring, which is why I moved on. But that is the one pedal I often miss. It had many great sounds, a very subtle signal boost, extremely well built and quiet.

    I want to try the Sole Mate also as I love the spring reverb.
    Which model are you using?

    I believe there are at least two models last I checked.

    Sole Mate is the one you want. It runs in front of the amp with only one amp input needed. The Reverbamate uses two amp inputs for the wet and dry signal. The Sole Mate works in your chain like just another stompbox. It is an awesome reverb. I just like the smaller size and the fact that you don't need a dedicated wall wart with Mr. Springgy.

    I'll see if there's one to check out ( and maybe buy) at the Arlington Show today.
    Thanks!

    As far as space issues are concerned, I have velcroed my wireless receiver on top of the Sole-Mate, buyt I've got a pedalboard with a hard cover. Also, the Sole-Mate has an "aux" switch that you can use to toggle on and off some function on your amp. I use the Sole-Mate "aux" switch to toggle an amp switcher. So, I get 3 functions out of the real estate that the Sole-Mate eats up on my board.

    However, there's no way around the Sole-Mate wall-wart, it's not an issue in my setup, but it could be for others.
