Basically i wanna know which is a good reverb for me to get. Budget around £100 or so, maybe a little more.

Basically i need something that can sound subtle and natural but also go to a pretty extreme reverb when i need it to create a wash of sound for when i want that option. Also i'd like something that will fit in my pedalboard easily so not a huge pedal. I'd like a few settings if possible too, so not just a spring setting for instance.

Been looking at the boss 'frv-1' fender reverb pedal and the EHX nano holy grail, but the demos don't sound that great. I know boss are a bit mediocre but their delays are good and the reverb seems alright it's just i'm not sure that it could do what i need. The nano holy grail just doesn't seem that good from demos, i dunno though.

that and this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhtCcKDvVIA&feature=related
looks pretty nice but i have no idea if it is, so..

Thoughts?

I'd advise against that specific Boss pedal. The Boss RV-5 or a Line 6 Verbzilla would work well.

I highly recommend the Hardwire Reverb. It's really good, and extremely versatile.

It's a great pedal, 7 different types of reverb to play around with. On that sort of budget the Hardwire takes the cake.

Hall of Fame is nice. Grab a used Neunaber WET though. They kick ass and depending on the settings, can go from a subtle room type to massive, never ending wash of sound stuff.

That the digitech hardwire yeah? Hmm, both the TC electronic and Hardwire are the same price so i guess it comes down to those. I do quite like that 'tone print' option though but i'll think about it a bit more. Thanks for the help

Still appreciate any comments from anyone here though just to add more info.

+1 to the Hall of Fame. At first, I was like, meh, toneprint, whatever. Then I started actually downloading toneprints and it was like downloading WHOLE NEW PEDALS to my pedal, lol. I was going to buy a chorus pedal, but one of the toneprints I downloaded actually adds just the kind of shimmery chorus (+ huge, ambient reverb) I wanted. I actually don't need a chorus pedal now! Some of the other toneprints include flanger (subtle effect, but it's there), added vibrato modulation, and even a sitar-like effect. Everything I could want in a reverb pedal...and the stock settings are great as well. I mostly just use the "church" setting and that "chorus + cathedral" toneprint set with long decays for my clean playing.

Hardwire RV-7 or TC Electronic Hall of Fame. Those are the best choices if you can't spring for something more intense like an Eventide Space or an EHX Cathedral.

The T-Rex Tonebug Reverb is pretty cool. It may not get the crazy extremes you're looking as well as other pedals but as far as subtle, useable reverb goes I've always been impressed. It is also quite small. Not EHX Nano small, but smaller than a Hardwire, which in itself is a good pedalboard size. The Hardwire is exceptionally versatile though. Test them out for yourself though.

the ehx cathedral is really good, could maybe get it for 100ish used?

it's a bit big but it's pretty gnarly

I just thought this needed to be posted again because I agree.

tl;dr: +1
