Whenever i see a head, i always see the basic treble-mid-bass-gain, but then there is reverb on a lot of them, as the only additional effect Why reverb? Of all the effects they could put on there, why reverb? Isnt it just another effect like phaser or delay? What makes it so special?

Because Reverb is very widely used in solos... Many just doesn't sound right without it.

You can get analog reverb straight from an amp, if it were phase or flange, it'd be DSP, and would sound like anuses, unless it was ridiculously good DSP.

Plus, reverb is such a staple for most guitar tones, it makes it sound fuller to me.

It's because a reverb effect can be easily built into an amp.
Also Reverb is what gives the guitar a more 'natural' sound.

If you have ever played in a room packed with people you know how dead sounding it can be. Reverb livens the sound up and smoothes out the room acousics, giving the illusion of space. Sometimes a particular room is just dead sounding, even without crowds.

Reverb adds depth an ambience to your sound to make it seem more lively and realistic rather than plain and flat. he reason most amps have rever is because it is probably the most widely used, most important and useful of all the effects.

how would one know how much reverb is needed?
some times when you add to much it sounds to "airy" sounding

Ya well when i wrestle/play with my dog he sometimes jumps on my back and starts humping me. But should he be doing this if he is neutered?

Yeah, crank up the reverb to sound like sex.
I know exactly what I think I'm doing.
