    +1 to this. The Dispatch Master is one of my all-time favorites. Great sounding delay, great sounding reverb.

    Boss RV6...it both has Stereo ins and outs as well as having an Expression out which is awesome for controlling the overall effect level/mix on the fly. Built like a tank, reasonably priced, great sounds!

    HoF2, or Neunaber Immerse in my opinion.

    I might lean towards HoF2 just for the price, availability, and mash.

    Alrighty,
    So I've struck a few off the list. I'm not after strymon, big sky is too deep for me.

    The Red Panda Context & the Iron Ether Nimbus seem to have what I'm after so far. The Dr. Scientist reverberator looks good too, but being able to control the input and low end content on the Nimbus looks like it would work better for bass and keys work than anything else I've seen so far.

    The takeaway is there are a number of good ones you'd likely be happy with.

    I've had Strymon Flint, Neunaber Slate, Rocket Boing, Empress Reverb, Mad Professor Silver Spring Reverb and Mr Black Supermoon.
    To my ears the most inspiring tone and feel I get is from the Mad Prof Silver Spring Reverb.
    I regretfully sold it to get the Neunaber as I need presets and shimmer.
    But the Mad Prof still haunts me. Just waiting for a used one to pop up.

    I’ve been through quite a few reverbs, and i’ve Stuck with the mxr. it’s easy to dial in, versatile/functional enough for all of my work, and to me (if set right) very natural. I’ve found a lot of reverbs sit on top of the signal vs. blend in to the sound, and the mxr blends well to me. My use of reverb is very subtle though, unless I’m doing something that requires a ton of verb. (Church gig, session, etc)

    It’s been awhile... But, let’s bump this thread for more up to date thoughts.

    I have the immerse on my larger board and it is versatile. But I found that I only use one or two sounds out of it. So for my smaller board I went with a one control Prussian blue mini. It only had one sound and you have to crank the knobs to get anything past subtle but it sounds great and takes up very little room

    I can't seem to escape the Mr. Black Super Swell. I've tried and just keep coming back to it!

    I don't see a ton of love out there on the Hof2 but it's my current reverb and I've never really considered changing it. It sounds great to me, using it live, at home, and at rehearsal rooms. I really like the being able to have a customize go to reverb setting so I can just leave the knobs at noon. Then just cycle between the three tone prints.
