    I just ordered a Verbzilla. Every other reverb pedal looked kind of boring to me.

    Verbzilla sounds pretty great for the price. Its better than any other Line6 product I have tried. Line6 Tech support said that the signal is not routed through the DSP converters when in bypass.

    I have both. Had the Verbzilla first, but the TC knocked it off the board due to it's more quiet nature, and most importantly, the ability to have two reverb levels available at the stomp of a button. Still have zilla as backup - the two are similar in fine sounding reverbs if your not using a big tank spring unit.

    They did? The VerbZ's buffer really brightens my overall tone. I've done extensive A/B'ing recently. Turn the mix all the way down so you are just hearing your dry tone and the tone is the same whether the pedal is on or off. A/B'ing with my direct signal, no VerbZ in the path, it is very noticable how much brighter it is. Could be a good thing or bad depending on your setup. With the pedal off, I've also notice a very different tone when switching the trials feature off and on. You would think it wouldn't matter and it would all be the same, but it isn't. These issues are my only beef with the Verbzilla.

    Had a verbzilla and replaced it with the Nova. Reasons were: the extra preset, lower noise, a better sounding buffer and better build -one drunk singer's foot on the knobs of a verbzilla and I'm pretty certain it'd be time for a new module.

    The verbzilla is one of my fav's, the octo and cave settings are worth the price alone.

    cave and octo is why I have it. its essential for me :)

    on the song 'streetlamp limelight' - i use the octo setting combined with a TRex Reptile and TC Nova modulator set w/ slight chorus and trem on the intro high pitched melody riff

    I've both. Nova's a bit better on realistic sounding reverbs, the Verbzilla better on cosmic, ambient sounds.

    I A'B'ed the two of them along with a Holy Grail when I was shopping for a reverb pedal. I walked out with the Verbzilla. The Nova sounded good but the Verbzilla was more versatile, cheaper and had some great extras (octo, cave, echo)
