In quest for a “good reverb” ?

overview_image2_lg

Some people likes reverb from their amp, but for pedal nerd like me that’s not enough. I want more…different types, more options & more control, because if you wanna modern sound you have to follow innovations that come to us almost every day.
Of course different peoples – different needs.

If you’re in quest for appropriate reverb you should know your priorities and needs.
We will try to help you in the selection, so here’s our favorite reverb pedals:

STRYMON Big Sky

As you already know, one of the most powerful reverb effects in the world.

This mode is simply blew me:

EVENTIDE Space
Eventide is synonymous for a quality sound. This pedal is “like a dream” for many of us. The other option is to buy H9 and use algorithms from Space.

EARTHQUAKER DEVICES – Afterneath

Modern,cool & perfect for ambient texture. Don’t let the names of knobs confuse you.

Nick Reinhart: “To me, this is the Dispatch Master’s like older weird brother.”

Old Blood Noise Endeavors – Procession

“Its what we would use to create a science fiction soundtrack.  A strange mix of haunting reverb and three modulation settings, the Procession aims at inspiring something new, something fringe and something risky.” Wanna hear some more ?
Just watch this beautiful demo:

Neunaber Technology – WET

Excellent sound quality, small footprint & possibility to program.

Pedal Customizer™ software can transform your Neunaber Stereo Pedal into ANY available effect!

 

DigiTech – Hardwire Supernatural
Really love modes like:

  • Supernova – Deep space reverb with twisting flange and pitch-shifting.
  • Shine – Shimmer reverb with a thick lush chorus added.
  • Pherb – Rich Lexicon Hall reverb with a hint of phasing.

Shimmer is slightly detuned…very cool.

TC Electronic – T2

Latest reverb from TC Electronic with TonePrint… you can create your own “dream reverb” or enjoy in signature TonePrint from your favorire artist.

Walrus Audio make some of the coolest looking pedal. This one is a killer.
There are 3 modes of operation – Hall, Reverse, and Shimmer

MR.BLACK – Supermoon

This is one of the best ambient modulated reverb today… magnificent pitch shifting modulation. It can take you to the moon & back. Very popular pedal from Jack DeVille .

 

SUBDECAY – Super Spring Theory

If you’re looking for “very good spring reverb” and you don’t need a lot of complicated features then this is it ! Just GO & buy it !

STRYMON – blueSky

First thing that cross your mind with this pedal is : best shimmer on market
If you don’t need a “big box” with bunch of features, BlueSky offer much more than just a “good shimmer” reverb. Sound from this pedal still blows my mind every time I turn it on.

This pedal gives you a full palette of soundscape options. From essential Rooms, Halls, and Modulated, Plate, and Spring reverbs – to the outrageous Halo and Reverse effects, Polara has you covered.

KEELEY ELECTRONIC – Caverns

Two effects in one pedal – delay & reverb. Always a good combo.
3 modes: modulation,studio plate & shimmer … that’s enough for my needs !
With the new Morph Control, the reverb effects can be further customized in each mode with control over modulation pulse, pre-delay reflection, and octave-up voice intensity.

BOSS – RV6

Modulate settings from RV5 is awesome and now we have RV6 – a younger brother with new modes. Shimmer, Dynamic, and Delay+Reverb modes deliver lush, immersive textures sought by modern players. They add expression input too.

    Great post thanks. Not a guitarist myself, synths are my thing. I’ve a TC M3000 which is a lovely true reverb. Thinking of getting a pedal to add but not so much for the same smooth territory, more a contrast. Would you recommend the Afterneath you think?

    Thanks ! Afterneath is very unique reverb I like it a lot. With Afterneath you can get great ambient sounds, experimental pitch shifted reverb or even short echo effect.
    Here’s our demo for Afterneath we used Arturia Microbrute analog synth too so check it out :
