Hey fellas, I am looking to replace my Boss reverb pedal. I grow tired of it and find it the synthetic and not warm/rich enough.

I wanted to describe the sound I am looking for and see if I could get a good recommendation. When I write songs I generally use reverb for psychedelic/space rock like Pink Floyd and definitely Sigur Ros or I use it mildly for Classic Rock/Blues.

Any tips would be much appreciated.
what Boss is it?

if you don't like the digital you might want to try an "analog" pedal like the Malekko Chicklet or a real spring reverb like the Fender Tube Reverb, if you have the cash.
Line 6 Verbzilla is a great reverb for long spacious cavern-type sounds. You could also check out the Malekko Chicklet in a similar price range. The Digitech Digiverb and Hardwire RV-7 are also great pedals.

punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.

Also, the Chicklet is not analog, it's digital.

what is your budget? if you have the money, i would recommend a stand alone spring reverb unit. here are a few i know of:

http://www.vanamps.com/ (sole-mate) or http://www.guitarx.com/cgi-bin/store/index.cgi?cart_id=6117139.10547&back=&pid=3125&keywords=&product=EfxVanAmps or http://www.buyanalogman.com/VanAmps_Sole_Mate_p/sole-mate%20by%20vanamps.htm

http://guyatone.com/Fr3Kv.php or http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Guyatone-FR3000V-Tube-Drive-Reverb-Unit?sku=155071


The last three are tube driven and a bit more expensive. If i were to recommend a tube driven one...it would be one of the first two...that is the Valvetrain Spring Thing or Guyatone FR-3000V. I hear tube driven ones are warmer and sound better. If you are short on cash, the Vanamps Sole-mate would be a good option. And note...all of these are actual analog spring reverb units...not digital crap. If you want a really good reverb...one of these is your best option.

Hope this helps...good luck.

i posted a reverb thread not too long ago, do a quick search if you want to see the whole thing, but my favorite was either the hermida reverb, or the malekko chicklett.

the hermida reverb is the one on my GAS list though.

the hermida is a good pedal. It's as super reverby as a real tank but it adds a nice bit of warmth.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer
