    Hey,

    I run a dual-amp setup and one of my amps doesn't have any reverb. It hasn't been a huge deal to me, but it'd be nice to have the comfort of a really good sounding reverb at my disposal.

    So what's the best reverb unit/pedal that you've used?

    Thanks!

    Hardwire Rv-7 is really nice and has a bunch of different reverbs on it and uses lexicon technoligy in it. I have heard good things about the line 6 verbzilla too but have not tried it..

    +1 on the HardWire. I don't have one yet, but one day it will be mine.

    I'm in the same situation. I've tried the Digiverb and the Boss RV-3, but wasn't completely happy with either. Just bought the Verbzilla based on clips of the 2 spring modes. It hasn't come in the mail yet, but I'll post my impressions when it does.

    I use the hardwire in the loop of my Tweaker and in front of my Bassman, sounds great, several different reverbs in it.

    The EHX Cathedral is great. It also has 2 seconds of delay. The holy grail is good, and I've heard alot of good things about the hardwire and the trex tonebug, but have never had either of the two.

    Lee Jackson "Mr Springy". Two outputs allowing you to feed a reverb signal to your non -reverb amp and a dry signal to your reverb amp at the same time.

    Check into the Hermida Reverb - supposed to be one of the best especially in its price range ($100). I have one coming and should have it later today.

    I have a Verbzilla and like it a lot. It has a bunch of different verbs and also a short echo for slap-back.

    I also have a Midiverb 4 rack unit which is outstanding, but has many more effects than just reverb. I think they are a great value used.

    Least obnoxious one ?

    Tech 21 RVB Boost. Analog and great.

    Verbzilla is ok too but definitely falls below the Tech 21 in terms of quality of sound.

    Cathedral ? I had one and I don't have it anymore...

    I needed one in a hurry and could only try out the Holy Grail, T Rex Tonebug and a Marshall Reflector.
    Some of the pedals mentioned may sound better through the loop or with a dirty sound but for an undistorted guitar sound in the front end of an amp out of the three on offer locally I picked the Marshall.

    I also owned a ehx holy Grail before this. For spring, this is better IMO.

    EHX Holy Stain. I'm in the same boat, none of my heads have reverb. The Holy Stain is $100 and not only does it have 2 reverbs but it also has tremolo, pitch and two fuzz channels. The reverb is super deep or it can be subtle. For the money it's tough to beat.

    I don't about guitar but I really like the Boss RV-5 for pedal steel.
