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...


Why did you change G System? I cannot decide which way to go G Major 2 or G System as multieffect setup or separate effect pedals. Which path will suck tone less?

The G-system post-gain effects were awesome and fairly transparent, but the pre-gain portion just sucks (for lack of a better word). It was very noisy and sucked tone big time - I even had the iB modded black version and it still "sucked" - I endlessly tweaked and tried every trick in the book to get it right, but everytime I plugged straight into my amp I would get so frustrated with the G because of how bad it changed my tone - it really cut a lot of bottome end off. Plus, I just decided I wanted a simpler set up since I don't use many effects anyways.

Here's my current board (and I love it!). All true bypass and zero tone coloration!

I had a Mr. Black Supermoon. It's a great pedal, imo, that can do a really nice, natural sounding "traditional" reverb, but it has a decay knob that allows you to dial in up to 30 seconds of trail that modulates up in pitch as it decays.

I just found that I really prefer a bit of delay if I want a bit more ambiance or space, and since the DD-7 is so much more versatile (looping, slapback, digital/analog optional, reverse delay, etc.) than a reverb pedal, it didn't make sense to have both. If you're into reverb though, I don't think you can go wrong with the Supermoon.

Ditto, especially for lead tones - I used to have plenty of reverb but now I added a short "1 and a half" repetition delay and it sounds much more clear but still wide.

Although I love reverb, I agree that just a bit of delay with lead tones is the way to go - I have my delay set similar to Jackie and it's pretty subtle, but it still adds that fullness to beef up solos. Reverb sounds pretty cool with a slow, drawn out solo (think Gilmore) - but it can mush up your note separation when playing fast (especially w/ heavy distortion). Just like any effect, it shouldn't over power your guitar - but just add some subtle texture to you playing (at least in my opinion).

I could play the Blue Sky on modulated plate with decay at 100% for hours. I think I have. Great pedal!

I had a blue sky, was great.... Just got a big sky and that's wonderful. I haven't let my flint go yet.... That pedal is fantastic as well.

I had the TC HOF and never bonded with it. I now have the TC T2 reverb and love using it for the long spacey stuff.

Hardwire Supernatural has an amazing spring/plate reverb.

Also, more obvious choice but the Hall of Fame is fun for using the downloadable patches. Neunaber Stereo Wet is good for basic reverb to more ambient type of cleans.
