Hey guys, I'm looking to get a delay and reverb pedal (most likely an expression as well, but that will need to wait a few months) for the purpose of experimental ambient sounds.

I've got about $300 to spend.

I'm currently heavily leaning on the boss dd7 for the delay, the reverb is where I'm mostly stuck.

I wanted to get the hardwire rv7 reverb (love the tones) but it seems to trail off too quickly and doesn't built as spacious a sound as ambient music would require.

The verbzilla seems pretty good on octo/cave settings. . .

Any advice?

Thanks.

the verbzilla is good for what you want. also the boss rv-3. it isn't made anymore, but they can be found used. tons of ambient/post rock guys use those. i'd also look into either an analog delay, or even another digital delay that you can find within budget just because having 2 delays = awesome, and again, it is another thing ambient guys do.

Yeah I was thinking about eventually getting another delay for that cascading sound, is it usually best to set it up as delay->reverb->delay in that case (otherwise reverb after delay?)?

Do you like the dd7 for a delay pedal?

i think the dd-7 is pretty good. i'd choose a dd-20 or dl4 over it, but both of those are more expensive.
