Reverb recommendations?

Building a new rig and am thinking I'll use a reverb pedal. The JSX does have reverb, but I'm not sure I want to go that route...might just pull the reverb out of it.

If I do get a pedal, which would you recommend? I do need it to be smaller form factor to fit on my board--no bigger than a typical Boss pedal.

I have the TC Electronics Hall Of Fame, and it sounds great! Lots of settings, and the toneprint setting adds some extra versatility! If you're in the USA though (or even otherwise) i'd recomend the Pro Guitar Shop custom edition; the Trinity.

And on that note, the Hardwire Supernatural from PGS also looks something special...

Yeah, I was definitely considering the HoF. I'll look into the Trinity and the Supernatural as well. Thanks.

Anyone else want to chime in?

I'd go for the Supernatural or Hardwire RV-7.

If you have no budget and can get a tad bit more space the Strymon blueSky reverb is awesome!

The Supernatural and Trinity both seem well suited to doing ambient stuff, but I definitely won't need any of that. Just looking for something simple and good quality I guess. Of those mentioned so far in this thread, I'd probably lean toward the Hardwire RV-7 or standard HOF. I guess I'll look into the Holy Grail too...the smaller one.

Strymon BlueSky is definitely a higher-end reverb. doesn't take up too much room either.

the Hall of Fame/Trinity (basically same thing except Trinity is a newer model), WET reverb, and Supermoon have all gotten good ratings.

A basic reverb would probably be the Holy Grail (nano since you want a smaller)

All except Strymon are standard 'boss' size

Strymon is nice, but a bit big and a little spendy too.

Buy a spring reverb tank and carry it around the stage.

Leaning toward HoF or Holy Grail Nano. I like that the HoF has a few other settings. Love the HG's simplicity though.

I would definitely go the HoF or RV-7, if you are looking for a reasonably priced reverb for simple applications.

Ok, picked up HOF. Just got it at GC. Site had it for $121.17 (strange) so store matched that. Thanks all.

P.S. waiting a few more days to do a NRD (new rig day).

Loop. Chorus > delay > reverb.
