    There’s also my washing machine...If I sing into my open washing machine, the reverb is fabulous.

    Ok, trying pull one over on us... I can tell a drain pipe when I see it but which model of Electro Harmonix is that other one?

    BTW. TC’s T2 verb was made for the “ambience” crowd and has some huge verbs, swells, etc..

    Seems like a lot of people use it to mean "not spring". But it is pretty vague. They all are ambient to me.

    i'm partial to the old Lexicon MPX-100

    it has many canned usable reverb and delay presets + a bank dedicated to user presets too.

    i bought one 2nd hand some years back and one of the user presets.. i'm not sure if it was actually programmed by a previous owner or if it came pre-loaded, but anyway, it is HUGE. when i dial it up a bit, it can go for days.. i'm not kidding, it is extremely deep.. days deep. you want an ambient wash this thing does it in spades.

    IME I think most people really mean modulated when they say "Ambient".

    Ironically, the Ambient setting on the Hall of Fame has no modulation. :confused:

    Earthquaker Devices Afterneath seems to be unique. I have one on the way exactly for ambient textures.

    Ambient implies shimmer to me.

    For me, ambient is a couple of delays with different speed and decay behind a deep reverb with a long tail. It creates a sustaining, lingering, texture of noise.

    not very pedalboard friendly, but it really doesn’t get better than this.

    Nope, I don't want a spacey verb. I was just offering a common definition for 'ambient'.

    Good ol' Fender spring reverb for me, and lots of it.
