So i was reccomended to look at JOYO for pedals and I just ordered my first one, their digital delay. Are there other companies with prices as good as joyo that are still of good quality? I'm looking for a reverb at the moment

EDIT: Thoughts on the mooer shimverb?

the shimverb's a bit meh. it's fine if you get it cheap enough (like i did... £28 or somethign like that ) and just want a no-frills bog standard reverb, but if you want something more involved or which sounds better (especially since it's more difficult to get those really good prices any more) i'd look elsewhere.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I had the Shimverb and didn't mind it for it's spring setting. The shimmer was nice too, but not as good as the Blue Sky's shimmer setting. I sold it as I only ever used the spring and now have a nice real spring reverb on my amp.

It is power hungry to, I think the manual states it requires 127ma or what not but it actually consumed over 150ma in full operation. Mooer's analog pedals seem to get a good wrap everywhere I've heard.

I would go for a used Hall of Fame if you want a nice reverb pedal on the cheap.

EDIT: Shimverb was a little noisy compared to other digital verb's I've tried.

^^ yeah mine's a little noisy too. i don't mind its spring setting, or (especially) its room setting, but the shimmer is a bit meh (admittedly, i don't really play anything that'd use shimmer, so maybe i just don't "get" it ). And even the better-sounding modes are a bit meh compared to better-sounding reverb pedals, i'd say.

As i said, if you get it cheap enough, it's fine.

Freekish Blues has probably been buying them up again.

There are a lot of old DOD pedals that can be found for cheap. Another good way to score pedals cheap is craigslist. Just keep a lookout for the junkies selling off their stuff.

A "tubescreamer" is a person paid by a guitarist to stand behind the amp and scream at the tubes. This terrifies the tubes into overdriving and delivers a thick, harmonic-rich tone.
