    Ok so... I've seen this on a lot I bass players boards and I personally own one but have never really thought it shined in bass. So my question is, what am I missing?

    I had the same feeling about the RV-5, but for me the RV-3 was way better. I like how the wet/dry mix and that it doubles as a delay. Think that is the main reason to have it, as a reverb and delay in one pedal instead of two. There are obviously better reverb pedals, but IMO the RV-3 is pretty good, and that is coming from some one that doesn't like a lot of Boss pedals. Another thing I like about it is that it is buffered, because I like to start and end my pedal boards with a buffer.

    I am a lot happy with mine because I rehoused it to be top mounted.

    Also to note is that there are some mod that can be done, but I don't have much info on them.

    The RV-3 is one of the very few pedals that I really hated on bass... cold and lifeless, IMO. Did work much better on guitar (again IMO), but eventually sold it to get a Marshall Echohead.

    Jeff Caxide of Isis used 2 of them to great effect.
