I am in seriously need of a heavy duty reverb/ ambient pedal.

Maybe something along the lines of what Sigur Ros' guitarist uses. Not a rack mount though. Unless there's no floor units that can compare to the rack mount models.

I need a really thick sound with it, but with the original signal remaining strong.

thanks guys.
Just a little note, I think alot of their reverb on the ablums comes from recording in huge buildings / churches.

Pedalwise, i'm not sure if they are extreme enough but checkout the EHX reverbs, they seem to sound really nice.
