    audio samples of the Flints reverb by strymon:




    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMV2lGFWYPk





    BRS demo with some talk about...




    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNgXTFHiiDs





    Supernatural vs. Blue Sky




    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xui0yeIf7I8





    EDIT: but i can't decide between the BRS and Flint... both sounds great and can go from standard to hughe verbs... one comes with the trem, the other with the modulation and the shimmer... the Flint comes just with stereo out and mono in... blue sky has stereo in and outs.



    cant wait for the strymon reverb-"line"

        Supernatural is awesome. Mr. Black Eterna is also awesome. Cathedral is a lot of fun as has already been mentioned. The Source Audio reverb looks like it could be fun and has gotten good reviews.

            from TGP:



            http://soundcloud.com/nathan-sousa/b...everb-shootout



            Dr. Scientist Radical Rverberator: This is a great, natural sounding unit. It won't do long long long decays like the Wet/Strymon stuff, but for amp-like reverbs, I thought it was one of the best. It can get a bit noisy at times, and suffers from a lack of a tone control, but tons of options on board with the middle dial for different types of reverbs. A cool pedal for sure, plus a nice small footprint.



            Strymon Blue Sky: This is a really hit or miss pedal for me. The last clip of it sounds the best, and that's when it's doing it's over-the-top modulated thing. As a natural verb, it's not my favorite. Shimmer is a nice feature, but is overdone and amply demo'd, so I left that out. The mod is cool, but only if you really want to hear it as an effect. Two tone controls can be nice, but I like the simplicity of one.



            Strymon Flint: One of the best, if not the best of the bunch. 3 different modes to choose from (not too little or too much) and a great tone knob. Simple and effective, and great sounding. The 60's drip verb is nice and amp-like, but the 80's long decay is just over-the-top ambient. It does a couple of different sounds very well and could replace a BSR easily for my tastes.



            TC Hall of Fame: Another simple to use great sounding box. If you get into the Toneprints, you can easily be overwhlemed, but for the most part, I use the Church, Hall, and Dark Hall Toneprint settings. Tone knob does a lot of good for certain presets as they can get a bit extreme. I love this for an always on verb or effect type verb. It's on my main board and probably won't be leaving.



            Boss RV-5: My least favorite of the bunch (there had to be one, right?). Can't really do long decays, and the overall tone of the pedal is too bright and brash for me. I prefer darker reverb sounds that don't splat too much, and this does not excel in that department. The mod was okay, but the BSR/Wet sounded better there. Just okay for me.



            Earthquaker Dispatch Master: Another pedal that has it's own unique thing going on. I did all the takes with the delay off except for the last one. I wanted to show what the pedal is capable of for ambient sounds, including the built in delay. But also, as a stand alone verb, it's very nice IMO. It's dark, which I like. There's no tone- so that could be a downfall for some (like the RRR). It's got a nice lush long decay with a subtle mod on there. Not tweakable, but if you like the way it sounds, there's really nothing like it.



            Neunaber Stereo Wet: This was my first time playing the Wet and was really honestly torn on it. The tone knob does not have quite the range in the sweep as the Flint, BSR, or Hall of Fame. It doesn't get drastically dark I guess is what I'm saying. It's plenty bright for me in the fully CW setting. It also is not very versatile (besides the Dispatch Master, the only one without selectable reverb types) which is a big drawback for my tastes. You get one sound, and then can tweak the length, mix, and tone (subtly). If you like mod, you're stoked. If you don't, you can't dial it out. It kills on the last take, the long lush decay. That is where it shines, but I wouldn't say it was any better/worse than the Flint in that department. Just different. I would take the Flint/HOF just on the versatility and better tone control. Still, the Wet has a lot of charm and does it's thing very, very well.





            So there you go! Hope it helps anyone deciding which reverb unit to buy, or wondering how their pedal stacks up against some others. FOR ME, I would rank them as follows (as an overall "like" of the pedal):



            (1) Strymon Flint (overall versatility, adjustability, and just great sounds)

            (2) Hall of Fame (tons of options, great tone control, and updateable via Toneprint)

            (3) Dispatch Master (instant ambiance, easy to dial in, I happen to love the tone voicing and modulation)

            (4) Stereo Wet (long decays are gorgeous, but not a lot of tweakability and a weak tone control)

            (5) Strymon Blue Sky (shimmer has become a gimmick to me, and the plate/mod/spring were not great to my ears)

            (6) Radical Reverberator (lacks the versatility of tone controls, only has two decay settings, can be a bit noisy)

            (7) Boss RV-5 (thin, brittle, not long enough decays, sterile sounding)

                                This is the correct answer.




                                Dunno mang...500 bones for reverb? For that kind of money I'd personally look at rack units. If you're okay with a more convenient size and a handfull of convincing sounding reverb types at a more reasonable price point, EHX/Hardwire/Boss does the job just fine imo
