  • Reverb Pedals vs Amp Reverb

    I really like the reverb tank on my AC30, and I have a reverb pedal but it's a ****************ty Behringer and I'm sick of it, sounds fake in every setting.

    Anyone got any recommendations, or do they think I should just rid myself of the pedal and roll along with the AC30's? I'm not doing anything especially weird or heavy with it.

    a spring in an amp [or pedal/outboard with actual springs] to me always is better because of the reactive nature with tremolo picking Dick Dale style stuff...

    if you just want ambient stuff, a pedal has it's advantages...

      For spring reverb, amp all the way. Love my Ampeg's reverb.

      For any other reverb, pedal.

        If you're a big reverb guy then the pedal route will give you more options and versatility.

          If you're looking for the most 'natural' sounding reverb, you're not gonna beat the amp circuit. But I also use a Spring Chicken for really trashy **************** because it holds together way better than the amp does if the reverb is cranked.

          Right tool for the job and all that.

              I friggin lurve that pedal - it does trashy garage reverb better than a vintage 6G15 or Premier.

                  Pedal. The reverb on my AC30 doesn't get as wet as I'd like.

                    i think the chicklet is the best reverb pedal i have ever heard.

                    that being said, i cant get over how amazing the blues jr reverb is.

                      Depends.

                      I like my reverb to be huge, lush, and anything but subtle. So out of the reverbs that I've owned, I preferred these 3 the absolute best:
                      RRR, Blue Sky, Holy Grail.

                      The Holy Grail had a really thick sound, and was perfect for my ambient/drone-ish stuff I was doing.

                      The RRR just flat-out sounded the best of the 3. ... natural, organic; didn't sound digital and/or metallic. But I only really made use out of Hall mode 1... and I wanted a bit more versatility - modulation, shimmer, maybe presets...

                      The BSR, while not sounding as natural or organic as the RRR, gave me exactly what the RRR didn't - another preset, more control over the decay, modulation... and I'm loving the shimmer; gives me a new sound I never really had.
                      Guitars. Pedals. Amps.

                        The right tool for the right job. I've got a great spring reverb built into my amp (Fender Twin Reverb), but it can't do 'plate', 'hall', 'catherderal', etc. I have a pedal for those, and use both depending on the situation.

                            Nice recommendations.

                            What do people think of the RV-3 then? I just fancy something a bit different reverb wise, and my experience with a few pedals (Verbzilla, my own crappy Behringer one and a couple of others) have been negative

                            I'm kinda looking for a pedal for the sake of a pedal because I'm not sure what I want the reverb pedal to be doing differently yet. Although I do know I hate plate reverb.

                              Then avoid the RV-3, because plate is its strength. I thought the other reverbs on the RV-3 were pretty unpleasant to my ears.
