    Hermida reverb it is cheap only 99 bucks and it sounds really good clean and distorted. I have tried a LOT of reverb pedals and like a lot of them but this one IMO sounds the best, just simply reverb like on a good amp. A cheaper decent reverb is the Biyang Baby Boom reverb it is also a good all around reverb with more options. Also I havent tried one personally yet, but the TC Electronics Hall Of Fame Reverb looks and sounds REALLY good in the demos..

    I have the old big box holy grail, it was one problem after another, although it sounded very good, IMO. So I broke down and got the Cathedral. It is great, but it is overkill for me. It has to have it's own power supply, which is a hassle. It has delay, but you can't use delay and verb at the same time. It is also pretty big. I have thought about trading it for a Trex tonebug or a boss rv5. Anbody have any opinions on these 2?

    Has anyone tried the Byang RV-10 Tri-Reverb?:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/New-RV-10-Stereo-Reverb-Guitar-Effect-Pedal_W0QQitemZ260728762332QQcategoryZ41415QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZe11010.m263QQ_trkparmsZalgo%3DSIC%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252BIA%252BUA%252BFICS%252BUFI%252BDDSIC%26otn%3D10%26pmod%3D180646582598%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D8223295560006690442

    It looks pretty good, this new model is in a small MXR-sized box, and the price is right. I assume it uses the Belton Brick like most of the new reverb pedals, but I don't know for sure. Also true bypass, for what it's worth. And stereo in and out for guys with stereo setups.

    Anyone try it out?.

    Yeah, I did, but sorry I didn't catch the "Baby Boom" connection. Anyone else try this one?. Anything you don't like about it?.

    I'm wondering if it's just the newer version of the RV-8 Byang Tri-Reverb, which comes in a bigger box. If anyone has tried both, are they the same, except for the size of the box?.

    Thanks,
    Al

    EHX Holy Grail (older version) use it only for clean tones, no hiss.

    I use an EHX Holier Grail and I really like it. It's not muddy for me. I power it through a PP2+. The only thing I don't like about it is that it takes up so much room.

    I recently picked up a Boss FRV-1 and I like it a lot.

    Verbzilla sounds great but line six quality control stinks. I love boss rv3, and have been using an rv5 on tour and like it a lot. Boss stuff is built to last and the switches are quiet. I like true bypass in theory, but to be honest a lot of TB pedals make a lot clicks and pops turning on and off.

    +2. Using the EHX specific wall wart is a must when using the HG. I don't mind it at all, even if I have to use an extra extension cord sometimes. It's one of those "from my cold dead hands" effects. I have not found it muddy with fuzz or distortion effects, but I don't use distortion or overdrive much. I know a guy who uses his through the effects loop and uses quite a bit of distortion. I don't know if that is something that adresses any muddiness or hissing issues, but my experience has been pretty quiet. The first one I got had problems, but that was a defective pedal. Traded it in for the one I've been using for the lat 8 years.

    For what it's worth, I've played quite a few reverbs in the past few months. I tried the holy grail, holy grail nano, verbzilla, hall of fame, boss rv-5, hardwire, biyang tri-verb. I wound up keeping the holy grail nano, for cost reasons. Maybe one day I'll upgrade to a hall of fame.

    The others, weren't cutting it.

    I run my HG nano off of a one spot, and it's dead quiet. The original HG Was noisy off of the one spot.

    The Holy Grail suits me to the ground. The controls are easy to dial in and the tones are top-quality.

    Holy bump, Batman. I'm pretty sure my opinions would have differed 3+ years ago.

    Loving this pedal. Thinking about the Ghost Echo or the Malekko Chicklet Omicron. Whichever I can get used at my price point.
