    I've got an RV-5 coming in the mail. So, I was wondering what some of y'all's favorite settings are for some good ambient swells?

    I have a mine set on modulation with tone set at about 11 o'clock and effect nearly on full. When you run a Analog delay before the reverb it creates a really nice long swell that makes up for not having a keyboard player

    Plate and Modulation are your best bet.
    Level and Decay set high and Liveliness set where you think sounds best.

    When I had my delay running after the reverb I found it just made it too messy/muddy sounding (don't really know how to say it) but that was when I first started using reverb and analog delay so maybe it might sound better now that I know how to use it :D

    I use two reverb pedals. I have my Nova delay that runs into a Verbzilla then a Hardwire RV-7. The Verbzilla is set on the octo setting (kind of a U2 shimmer effect). The Hardwire is on Plate. I use the soft shimmer on slow/quiet songs (communion an offering). Other wise I have it off.

    I have a hall of fame and I really like it, but the rv 5 definitely will serve you well. I would stick with the rv5 if you like that mod setting on it.

    That's quite a bit for an RV-5! At least around here. I picked mine up for $85 in perfect condition, still in the box.

    Take it! And then find a used RV5 on Craigslist for less :)

    That being said. If you use the RV5 for the mod, stick with it cause its a HoF weak point.

    I use a fair amount of mod on my CC so it's not a huge issue for me.

    The initial figure Is in NZD and they retail brand new here for $249 but in still making a profit from selling it cause I bought the RV5 in the states.

    I do plan to buy another reverb eventually so that I can have one for swells and one for light reverb for lead stuff do sounds like a good idea :D

    Liam,

    If you're gonna get two then think about this... Last fall i sold my HoF and was going to replace it with a PGS Trinity and a Hardwire Supernatural. Then I realized that it would actually be $20 cheaper to buy 1 Strymon bluesky. Which with the favorite setting is two reverbs in one... And better sounding. Just something to think about.

    Ultimately i would love a bluesky but can't afford one atm especially since im meant to be saving up for an amp since i don't currently own my own amp haha. What i do like with the HoF is it has a longer reverb trail and its easy to change reverb settings with your feet so the one pedal will work alright for me for awhile :)
    My RV-5 is going tonight to it's new owner, this is the first time i've sold a pedal im feeling rather sad :(

    I only mentioned the blue sky because you mentioned buying a second reverb. If you're thinking of getting the HoF or trinity, check out the Guitar Center arena. Like the trinity it's a take on the HoF, but it has more new presents and I thought they seemed more useful for p&w

    +1 on bluesky if you are running two reverbs, down the track when you can save up for it.

    Plus, the Trinity is more Biblical. :)
