  • If you could have any reverb pedal

    what would it be? Not including rack units or spring heads, which reverb pedal would you own and why? 


  • #2

    Well, I really like my BigSky. Gonna go with that. There're just a ton of sounds available there ranging from crazy and weird, to huge and natural, to subtle enhancement. 3 Presets per bank. 100 banks. Full stereo. Spillover. Expression control. Cab emulator if you want to go direct. Basically noiseless. Also **** expensive, but what are you gonna do?


    Others I have liked a lot:

    Source Audtio Dimension Reverb

    Hardwire Reverb

    Hardwire Supernatural

     

    Ones I tried that didn't work as well for me:

    Red Panda Context

    TC Hall of Fame

    EHX Holy Grail

    Mr. Black Supermoon

    Eventide Space

    Strymon Flint

     

    All had their strengths and weaknesses, but a few in the didn't work camp had clipping or noise issues, especially when used in front of an amp or with other pedals or else they didn't sound as natural.

      did the space have clipping issues? I find clipping problems to be the problem with most reverbs, if the Cathedral didn't have such little headroom I'd still have it. Loved the way that thing sounded.

      I'm talking more about how it takes gain pedals in front of it. It just degrades. such a shame

    Reverbulator by demeter

    Versatile spring reverb. Spring is my favorite for guitar. I decided I wanted one of these as my only reverb pedal, so I splurged a couple years ago. I never play live with it (ever), but it'll be all over any recording I ever do. I use it for a send from my DAW or mackie 1202 also. Much more rewarding than digital stomp boxes.

    EHX Holy Grail nano

     

    Ive owned a bunch of verb pedals, including all of the spring reverbs made by Malekko and the Holy Grail is what I come back too.

    Good, usable spring mode, great hall mode, perfectly noiseless opperation even when chained with many pedals on a one spot.

    Sounds good, works flawlessly and is cheap and durable.

    I didn't come here to save whales, I came here to get laid and make rock 'n' roll

      I'm with Zappa on this one. I run two compressors, tons of octave fuzzes, fuzzes, wah, distortions, delays, boosts and modulation pedals through a nano holy grail with no clipping issues. It also just adds a great wetness and warmth in general to my tone. I keep it dedicated to spring mode.

      I like most of the reverb tank units or the ones already in the amp. Too bad with tank verbs if anything and I mean anything hits the tank it'll sound like a bomb going off in a cave

        Meh I didn't get on with the Mr Black ones myself. To be honest they sounded more like very short delays but also were kind of noisy. 


    • #12
      Yeah, I agree with V on the Mr. Black being noisy the Eterna I had was pretty noisy, especially in my Orange's effects loop, unusable.

        ****.. Mr Black reverbs looking less like an option then..

        companyman / V - what are you favourite reverbs? i've been through a bunch, but the RV-2 is best value for sound i can find (somewhat noisy on cranked settings though).

        i couldn't justify the price of the Flint vs the lack of parameters. if they dropped the trem and put some pre-delay, high and low shelving it would be have been golden.

    • #13
      I have owned a Holy Grail, Holy Grail +, EQD Ghost Echo, Eterna and finally settled on the Cathedral, I really like it, these headroom issues are a mystery to me... That said I run a dirty/clean dual amp setup with the Cathedral in the clean amp only.

          Big Sky used at recent recording session made unpleasant noises according to friend who ... is sympathetic to less-than-perfect gear.

          Anyone else?
