I´ve tried a boat-load of reverb-pedals, and this is (still) the nicest (for me) - perhaps with the exception of the Van-Amps "Reverbamate/Sole-Mate". But these are - again - quite big, and are not readily available...
They do sound nice, though

cheers - 68.
I had several FRV-1s, and they really get you into the 6G15 drip. They are also shrill at high volume and do not sound that great with dirt in front, from personal experience. I've tried to love em, sold and bought them back before prices took them out the game. I also give props to Source Audio Ventris and True Spring, owned both, and they emulate a spring reverb better than anyone else IMHO, but they still don't have that 'feel' of the Topanga, or my Surfy Bear and tube DIY builds. That being said, I'm looking for trashy surf reverb, nothing 'smooth' or 'realistic' except faithful to the old crappy tech of spring reverbs in general.Thanks everyone. I guess my ideal set up is just one overdrive pedal. I've been finding a pedal board clunky and space consuming, most bars provide a tiny floor space for bands as you all know So I was looking to get away from that. I think I'll try a boss frv1 into a tubescreamer, both take batteries therefore less cables to trip on and will take up minimal space, the frv1 has a good reputation too I believe. They're pricey but a lot less than a reputable tube amp, especially a vintage one
