    Hi all,

    "the best in a small package"- Does anybody has some ideas about good reverb/hall effects in small boxes - not in big 19" rack things - more like the EBS DynVerb. Does anybody has one or tried it-what are your experiences.

    Thanks in advance for your comments - Christoph

    Digitech Digiverb. I own one, love it, would pay twice what I did to replace it if I had to.

    It has Room, Plate, Hall, Cathedral, Spring, Reverse, and Gate modes, a blend control that can go 100% wet, and a High Cut EQ knob. Awesomeness in a box.
     
  3. Warning on Digitech: Between the two of them, my friends have bought 4 Digitech pedals. 3 stopped working within two weeks. That scares me.

    What happened to my comment ???
    I tried the EBS and it really does a good job. Very deep and wide still focused. No added noise.

    Holy Grail for me. But frankly, anything with EHX's name on it is an easy sale ;)
     
  8. what about those small alesis effects? those ones that are like a 1/4 space on the rack?

    I use an Alesis NanoVerb (1/3 rack space) and its attached to my pedalboard, I also have a Yamaha Magicstomp comming. The Magicstomp has 99 user presets, and about 20 verbs!!! I also have owned a EHX Holy Grail (mine was GREAT, but I have played some duds), Alesis Microverb, and a Alesis Quadraverb II.

    You really need to shop around, tone is different on all of them. Yamaha's verbs are dark, Alesis are digital sounding most of the time, Boss's are bright, the Holy Grail is grainy (but in a cool way)...

    Thank you all very much for your ideas and naming the reverbs of your choice. I ordered the EBS today because I liked the samples on their webpage and even if it has not so many settings it is asways better to have 2 good sounds than having 8 or so not so good ones...

    And like Tecx said, its really up to a personal choice if it comes to different reverb flavors...

    Thanks again - I will let you know what I think about the EBS DynVerb when it arrived.
