Reverb Pedals

Post by NorCal-Mesa » Sun Dec 30, 2012 10:55 am

Hey guys I got a Mesa Dual Rectifier and I want a reverb pedal to run. What is a good pedal without breaking the bank?

What kind of reverb sound are you wanting? Simple spring? Studio plate? Lush modulated verb? You can search the web for reverb pedals just as well as I can, but with a more specific goal I'd live to give a few suggestions.

I like the EH stuff personally. The Nano Holy Grail is really simple, straight to the point and well built. I'm not sure you could call it the "best", but it's a workhorse.

TC makes a nice reverb with lots of options that doesn't cost that much... twice as much would be something by Strymon. Those pedals are fantastic.

Hardwire RV7 is a pretty good pedal for it's price. I liked it better than pedals that were double the price.

Anything could be considered too expensive depending on how you define "breaking the bank"

The Neunaber "Wet" reverb pedal. One of the best reverb pedals. Mono version is ~$150 used

The TC "Hall of Fame" reverb pedal is very nice too. ~$120 used

The Electro Harmonix "Holy Grail" reverb - Very functional, simple and effective ~$75 used

Check the post "quality pedals" in the non-boogie classified..

There is a TC Hall of Fame for sale used for $100. Pretty good deal.

I don't know what your "bank" is, but my favorite stand-alone reverb pedal is the T-Rex Roomate. I used it with both my Road King and my MkV.

Everything under $100 bucks, I'd take the Hardwire. But the Hall of Fame would be great to test drive.

I have a Strymon Blue Sky verb - sounds so amazing and really well built. I used to own a TC g-system and they have some really nice reverbs - I'm guessing the single pedal TC stuff (like the Hall of Fame verb) is similar, but I've never tried one...

Another vote for the HardWire RV-7, great pedal, great sounds, and despite the name, it's actually true bypass.
