    The smaller the better, but tone triumphs size...cost is a factor as well...under 100 would be lovely.

    Anything fitting this bill?

    I can say the Mini HoF is a great reverb, not expensive, and small in size. As long as you are willing to work with the Toneprint editor, you can get any kind of reverb sound out of it shy of octaves up or down for shimmer/crystal effects.

    Used HOF's (regular size) go for around $100. I'd go for that, personally.

    Runner-up would be the mini.

    Agreed. Advantages of the full-sized are stereo, buffered bypass (trails), and kill dry (which you could set up for the Mini in the TonePrint editor if you wanted).

    I'm surprised for all the HOF love. I tried one for a week and ended up returning it. Wet for me.

    Well, the wet is neither mini nor under $100 (even used), but is a nice verb. I sold my HOF, because I found the stock algos rather boring. However the Toneprint editor is pretty powerful, and that led me to pick up the HOF mini. I'm still dialing it in, but find it very useful for a one knob pedal.

    The HOF Mini is the answer in terms of size, but it seems pretty easy to find used versions of the original for $89 or even $79, which is less than a new Mini. So it'd be tough for me to justify the single knob configuration when a slightly larger pedal costing me less offers spring, hall, etc. with a multi-knob.

    I was deciding between the HOF or a used HardWire RV-7, though the latter is actually fairly large for a compact pedal.
