Alright, in brief i have been using a behringer reverb machine for roughly half a year and now my mix knob cuts my signal when i move it from a cerntain spot. Folks, i think it is time for an upgrade. For this round of reverb i am going to need something that will fit in with a chapel worship setting. I have done my homework and I am now torn between the JHS Alpine reverb or the Fox Pedal Magnifica Plus. The Alpine seems to be able to do so much but the magnifica has amazing reverb tone and although it cant go 100% wet or dry like the alpine can, it sounds amazing with the feedback controls. The magnifica is a smaller unit and has 3 knobs compared to 5. I need help! I know the JHS seems like the obvious choice but the magnifica is something stranger than just your normal reverb. Any tips??

I know a lot of pedals, and there are lots of reverb pedals that will do the job & very well. I'm somewhat familiar with the Alpine, but not the Magnifica.

What's your budget and how did you settle on these 2 in particular?

I like the idea of having two reverb "presets" (if you will) in one box. These are also not terribly priced on reverb. My budget is around $180. And both of these pedals i can get for that, the magnifia new and the alpine used.

Well, off the top of my head...

I do like the JHS Alpine, FWIW.

They were well-built, but didn't sell too well: the Line6 ToneCore products had 3 standout modules, the Space Chorus, the Echo Park, and the Verbzilla. If you see one, they're worth considering.

The Keeley Aurora Reverb is relatively inexpensive, and delivers a lot of luscious tones for its price.

The DigiTech Polara looks like it should be pretty nice, but I haven't seen one up close. I think it merits a closer examination.

Among the pricier pedals, you have things like the Death By Audio Reverberation Machine, Dr. Scientist Reverberator, Walrus Descent, Blackout Effectors Cadavernous, and the knob-festooned Earthquaker Devices Disaster Transport Sr. They're all going to give you a bunch of absolutely fantastic tones, and usually have some feature or quirk that you'll either love or hate.

Plus there's the snoot factor...

By every indication, they're killers- some of the best there is at what they do.

Another tasty but inexpensive pedal is the Earthquaker Devices Levitation. Used, they're @$150.

The Catalinbread Topanga is nice too.

Somewhere here, there's a bigger thread about reverb pedals. I'll see if I can find it.

Edit: found a few:
