Any good Delay/Reverb combo?

    Hi.

    I like the look of Fender’s new Reflecting Pool combo. I don’t have it, but I do have both the Marine Layer reverb and the Mirror Image delay. The Reflecting Pool has, as I understand it, updated and expanded versions of these in it (new engine, extra variation types and some other stuff, including tap tempo).

    I think both of mine are good. Simple to use, yet quite a few clearly differentiated options, and they both sound good to me. So, the Reflecting Pool seems really appealing.

    If it matters, there is no spring type in the reverb however. Also, the Mirror Image can’t really do long, ambient delays, and I’m not sure if the updated version in the Reflecting Pool can.

    I’m actually kinda annoyed the Reflecting Pool has turned up so soon after I got the Mirror Image.

    They have a new one out, the DDR (Drive/Delay/Reverb) that looks promising too. Keeley has some great stuff overall.

    Picked up the NUX Atlantic tonight. Pretty much works as advertised. It is very quiet which is nice. Works well for a small amount of delay and reverb which is what I want. It might get a little artificial sounding if you really turn up the levels. My 2 cents.

    Update on the NUX Atlantic: Decided to exchange it for two Ibanez mini pedals instead. The delay and chorus. Both are supposedly pure analog. I still give the NUX high marks, but I think that I can get the sound that I want better out of the Ibanez minis. Chasing that sound I suppose.

    Old Blood Noise Rever might be worth a look?

    I still use the old Boss RV-3. Burned one up about a year ago and looked at all the new pedals and ended up buying another used RV-3---its a work horse. Platefire

    It would be great if Boss would offer an updated version. imagine the same features but with today's processing power, Wow! Boss RV-3 Waza, who's with me?

    I think the answer is yes but it's almost impossible to answer which one.

    It depends on what you want out of the reverb and what you want out of the delay. For some values of each there might not be a combo pedal that does it.

    That's a good price, too, for that much functionality. Cool that it also allows for inserts so you could still put a chorus, 2nd delay or something between the drive and delay/reverb section. Only downside for some people would be that you can't use delay & reverb at the same time.

    Of course, if you already have 2 our of the 3 functions covered with existing pedals the price is probably too high to fill in just for the third.

    I think I've narrowed it down to the DDR and the Caverns. Probably more so the Caverns, I've got my drive tones more or less covered by my Mythical OD and Kingmaker Fuzz. But will definitely check them both out.

    I’ve been happy with the Caverns V2. Nice warm but not muddy delay side and very useable reverb options.

    I'm really liking the Seymour Duncan Dark Sun but it's pricey. You only have one reverb (Hall) but it's a very good sounding reverb while the delay section is full of features. It can store a ton of presets, you can have reverb feed the delay or delay feed the reverb - you can have delay and reverb split left/right - ducking - saturation - modulation.

    I love SA stuff, but that's a bit pricey and honestly more than I need at the moment. Amazing pedal though.

    Yeah, there are not many combo pedals that do this sort of thing. It is wonderful if you like to take up a lot of space in the mix.
