quick question which reverb would be able to handle a heavier-distortion type sound and a clean sound out of these two, i'm in the market for reverbs and i'm looking for opinions

line 6 verbzilla
ehx holy grail (maybe the plus one?)

any help would be appreciated

I really like my Holy Grail. A lot of people say they're really noisy though, mine isn't, but I'd be sure to try it out before hand and get one that doesn't add a lot of noise.

But if you don't have an amp that has an FX Loop, don't even waste your money.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

its pricey, but the Vanamps SoleMate is amazing. Its designed for amps with no FX loops too.

i'm getting a blackheart handsome devil shortly and i'm pretty sure it has no FX loop if that helps any and how pricey is pricey?

budget is reasonable i'd say 300

I can answer this question or at least offer my opinion. For a while I really wanted to get the Line 6 Verbzilla, based on it's sound samples, but it was rarely in stock and reports of it's durability were poor. So I ended up getting the Holy Grail Plus. My advice is, if you have an effects loop use it. If got a Metal Master distortion pedal at the front of my amp (a Krank Rev Jr.), the Holy Grail Plus on the effects loop and boy oh boy does it sound good. I will say that when I put both pedals at the front of my amp it sounded pretty muddy.

Not to be rude, but do you really want to spend that much on a reverb..?

Ah, why a metal master in front of a Rev Jr? Not a good sounding distortion on a nice amp and really, how much gain do you need?
to stay on topic, the Holy Grail is very nice

don't get a reverb pedal unless youre planning on getting all your gain out of a pedal.

Mine is very durable, of course it's not being used much BC of my DR amp.

Good question, the answer is that I can't get killer distortion out of the Rev Jr. without cranking the volume to ear shattering levels. I have the gain on my amp and on the MM set to a minimum on the dirty channel. I get a nice high gain tone with minimal noise and the reverb makes it seem bigger. I'm quite happy with the end result.
