Favorite Reverb Pedals?
 
Hi all,

What are your favorite reverb pedals nowadays? Are people using the Eventide Space, or are there some smaller/boutique options that people prefer?

Whitecat 14th August 2012 07:58 PM

TC Nova here. Love the auto-ducking feature.

Alndln 14th August 2012 10:32 PM

I'm interested as well. So far the best YouTube demo I heard was Electro Harmonix Cathedral. While the Eventide was nice, it seemed more of a delay modulation kind of thing, but maybe that was just the demo.

I bought a Boss RE 20 Space Echo, didn't buy it for the reverb... but I use this reverb quite a bit.

Love my RE 20! heh

Wet Reverb - Neunaber Technology Effects

Wet Reverb 3. I use this in a Surf Band. Beats hell out of hauling around one of those Fender units. I think it sounds better than the reverb tank in my buddy's 67 Vibrolux. Spiced up with a bit of Time Factor delay, twang.kfhkh

Van Amps Solemate is my fav.

Eventide Space.

...at least untill someone makes Valhalla rooms and Shimmer in a stompbox ;-)

Currently I have much love for the TC Hall of Fame, well worth a look I would say!

Me too, hook my sh101 up to it and i can lose hours...

The new Hardwire Supernatural sounds great in the demos by Andy at Proguitar shop - but Andy can make anything sound great! I do have the hardwire delay though and it is pretty darn good!!!

I love my Blackstar Reverb pedal.

Electro Harmonix Holy Grail (the big one/original)

not the most tweakable reverb, but sounds great!

I heard Ed Droste *singing* through one of these at a Grizzly Bear concert in 2009. The sound sent shivers down my spine. It was probably largely due to his voice, but obviously the pedal works for him.

I just read Neunaber's patent. It looks like a hardware implementation of a pretty simple feedback delay network reverb, but with a few clever ideas. The most clever idea is doing the summing and feedback in analog, as this will generate all sorts of nice coloration.

The Neunaber technology is used in the Belton "brick," which is apparently found in a bunch of boutique pedals nowadays.

Carl Martin Headroom. Awesome pedal and a genuine spring reverb with two settings.

Sounds great - here is my demo:


litepipe 16th August 2012 05:58 AM

Hmmm... But it's not really genuine because it doesn't have springs in it. So it's a genuine emulation.

Emulations are ok but you never get that cool unpredictable surprise you get from analog stuff.

I'm a sucker for analog spring reverb.

gregm1989 16th August 2012 06:18 AM

I'm saving up for a Strymon Blue Sky.

strymon » blueSky Reverberator – Reverb Pedal

Video demos blew my mind.

Deleted fece643 16th August 2012 12:20 PM

check out the EBS Dynaverb. Haven't looked for a pedal that offers shimmer as I use Valhalla Shimmer for that effect in the studio :)

No, it really has springs in it. That's why I called it a 'genuine spring reverb'.

I like it because it sounds as good as my old Fender Reverb Unit but it's smaller and has two settings so you can switch between a long and short reverb and you can also use an external footswitch if you want to stick it behind your amp.

I have found this is the best thing to do, as stepping on it wrong can give you that loud bang (again, real springs no DSP - not sure why you call it an emulation).

I went through Roland,Yamaha, lexicon rack gear, boss, EHx eventde pedals, but felt i got there when i got the strymon blue sky. the Shimmer mode, Plate and modulated are simply beautiful. It was so gorgeous i use it as a reverb send on on my mixer. But mind you I don't play through amps. I go straight from my guitar. To the effects than a looper than to the PA.

Listened to the demos. A bit digital sounding, but amazing. I use a earlier Holier Grail, but I definitely appreciate Strymon's Blue Sky.

I wasn't aware Carl Martin made a real spring reverb. Sounds like I would dig it!!

litepipe 19th August 2012 05:42 AM

I like the feature to switch between long and short reverb.

noah330 20th August 2012 11:35 AM

Yeah that is why I got it. Its smaller then the tank with better options and similar tone - although one person here said it sounded like an emulation - it also can run on boss 9v or a battery.

You get bypass or one of two reverbs.

It's not the most versatile pedal, but it sounds great for what it does.

Another vote for the Wet Reverb. It's very "guitaristic" and responds beautifully to the pick. It feels like an integral part of your tone, not a layer of goop plopped on after the fact. I also like that it's just two easy-access knobs. I often tweak it with my foot live while playing. I haven't found another guitar reverb that does that. The only thing I don't like about it is that it's true bypass and thus can't do trails.

My other reverb on my pedalboard is a delay/reverb program I tweaked up in an ancient Lexicon LXP5. It uses a quasi-multitap design with a long initial delay followed by faster cycling delays feeding the reverb. TONS of wash without mangling the initial pick attack. I actually have that huge LXP5 velcro'd down to my board just for that program. It gets even more use than the Wet. Can't buy that off the shelf, I'm afraid.

Fancy sharing the patch :)

I also really like the WET Reverb from Neunaber Technology (I use it mostly on synthesizers).
The only drawback for me is the lack of a "Pre Delay" parameter.
I often find that the reverb comes in a little late, especially with short melodic sounds (let alone percussion material - it is obviously not the right device for this kind of sound).
For that reason I'll probably buy the blueSky or SPACE shortly.

Indeed an hardware VRoom unit would be AWESOME. heh
