    Hi guys
    what kind of reverb would you recommend for use with a Ceriatone ODS?. I reckon I need an fx loop buffer (Kleinulator).
    - Holy Grail Plus?
    - Trex Roommate (bit expensive)?
    - Mr Springgy (a bit limited maybe?)

    appreciate your input!

    Cheers

    Steven

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean by theis.
    Why would you need a 20 ft cable in the loop if you run the reverb in front of the amp?

    Tames the high end in the same way as a dumbleator.I'd recommend a digitech digiverb for cheap or a trex-roommate if you want to spend more money. I had a mr springy which I liked but I traded it recently. The guy who got it told me that the construction was very amateurish with electrical tape around the jacks and the paint was flaking off the box and appeared to be sprayed on in someone's garage.

    Hi Jack
    I can understand you would use a long cable to put the reverb in the loop. But it's beyond me how you would use a long cable in the loop and then put the reverb in front of the amp.
    I must say I'm tempted by the Roommate (sounds a bit strange to say that actually. Hope my wife won't read this).
    I thought the Holy Garil was pretty decent. have you tested it?

    Steven,You shouldn't use a pedal in the loop without a dumbleator. That's why the cable and the pedal in the front works.I've tried the original holy grail. Grainy and noisy. Supposedly the new ones are better.
    By the way, i'm reviewing the dr scientist radical red reverberator but won't get it for a few weeks. It's supposed to be fantastic!

    don't think so. But I have to wait another 5 weeks or so before my amp is coming. Hopefully.......

    No not yet officially. But I did ask Nik about it and he said it probably wouldn't be very expensive.
