    I know I should. But I keep putting it off. My "use case" for a 2nd reverb pedal is to have a pre-delay setting for acoustic guitar and vocals (I run reverb in an FX loop of my small mixer - I know guitar pedals aren't always the best for this use but so far it's worked for me). I'm finding some significantly less expensive pedals such as the Hotone XTOMP mini and Valeton Coral MDR that also have pre-delay. Both are in the $70-$80 range. That's less than any used HoF1 that I've seen so far. HoF mini doesn't give enough control on the pedal to tweak in real-time for different environments.

    I'm waiting until Thanksgiving sales (and watching for used) until I make a decision. I have a corporate gig with my acoustic trio in mid-December where I think this would make a difference. Before then, the gigs I have I'm probably the only person who would notice a difference.

    ^^This^^ Its as simple or comprehensive as you want to make it. Use it out of the box with stock settings it’s great. Download pre written TonePrints from the app, it’s great. Dive into the weeds and write your own, it’s great. The editor is very easy and intuitive to use. Highly recommend the HOF2!!

    I'm with Marquee on this one. Twice a year, the praise band plays in the big sanctuary (650 seats, very high ceilings) and both the Deluxe Reverb and the Princeton sound fabulous in there. I put the amp up in the choir loft and tilt it back on it's legs. It's amazing how a small amp fills such a space unmic'ed. Of course the grand piano doesn't really need a mic in there either, awesome acoustics.

    The rest of the time it's a HOF 2 on "Hall" with both the level and decay at 10:00. It's mostly for my benefit because that's also in a room with high ceilings. The "Plate" setting on that pedal produces a kind of envelope that's almost DD. Sounds cool when you chop chords with overdrive on.

    My church used to let me have my band practices there, and we recorded some demos there. It sounded like "When the Levee Breaks" or some cool 80s hard rock sound. It was awesome!

    I prefer the built-in reverb of my Super 210, but if I’m playing through the Pignose then the Boss FDR-1 is pretty sweet.

    Plate is my favorite reverb. I also like a little slapback delay occasionally. For overdriven tones I prefer them dry.

    ^^^ This ^^^

    When I'm at a gig, I usually take the reverb off my guitar and let the room handle it naturally. When a room is really dry, or when I'm working at home I'll add a very natural sounding reverb... usually a room or hall algorithm. When I get it the way I like it, you won't even notice it unless it's removed.

    Of course... there are times when the full effect is required. I can't play a surf tune without judicious amounts of spring verb.

    It really depends on the acoustics of the room or venue I'm playing in.

    Because we tend to be conditioned by the music we grew up with, synthetic digital reverb and plate reverb (either real, modelled, or convolution sampled) are still the first choices for most pop work, but fashions are always changing in music, so this situation could change.

    I LOVE reverb. The spring reverbs in my Fender and Carvin amps do me just fine. I also built a Mod Kits DIY reverb for fun and back up. This summer we did an outdoor gig on an unstable flat bed. I had to use the Mod Kit due to excessive boooooooinnnnnggg.

    Speaking of big spaces, I once played a gig at a marina. They had the band set up in the doorway of a boat storage warehouse - the kind of aluminum sided building where they store 30-35 foot boats three and four high using a crane to lift them up onto metal racks.

    It was a pretty big party, both in number of people and space our sound needed to cover. I had my Super Reverb on 7 or 8. Needless to say, the reverb dial was set to 0 that day. But it was fun!

    I’m using their True Spring, which is the one series version of the Ventris. Couldn’t be happier.
