I am looking to buy a reverb pedal and I'm pretty much nowhere near deciding so I thought I'd ask for some help. First I guess I'll describe how I'll be using it. I recently started playing with a Jane's Addiction tribute band, and I'll be using it with them. I use reverb on the songs "Summertime Rolls" and "Three Days". Right now I'm using an old zoom multi-effect for reverb and chorus and I keep it in a wobo bypass looper. The reverb is most important in the song "Three Days". About 8:15 into the song everything drops out except for the bass which is totally washed out in chorus and reverb. I haven't been able to find a link to this song online yet but hopefully some of you are familiar with the part I'm talking about. I should note that while the zoom isn't cutting it for me on sound quality, I like being able to have presets, and since I use the wobo I can scroll through them mid song. I will also be using the reverb in an original band. I can already imagine some parts in some of our mellower songs where some subtle reverb will be really nice. I also have a use for it in mind in a newer song we are doing. I will be playing a very fuzzy synthy pattern (octaver and gated fuzz) While I think a reverb with a static setting would work, I think it would be even better to have expression pedal control of the reverb mix. I think I could also use this expression control with the Jane's band in lieu of having a pedal with presets. I tried getting a good reverb sound with my room mates SMMw/H and I actually got VERY good results. This pedal is definitely on my list, and it has presets, but they are not easy to scroll through with my foot, and there is no expression control. I've been considering the Malekko Spring Chicken because that has an expression input, but I must say I'm turned off by the lack of features. I've also considered the Ehx holy grail which I think I could mod for an expression pedal (check this article out http://www.geofex.com/Article_Folders/xprnped.htm). The new Hardwire reverb and Line 6 look like they have a lot of cool features but they lack presets or expression and I doubt I could easily mod them. The Dr Scientist is apparently awesome and I think I could add expression control to it or maybe even ask them to mod it for me, but it costs a bit more than I'd like to spend (I'm thinking I'd like to keep it around $150 or less). I also considered buying another multi for reverb and maybe chorus too but most of the units that looked to have the sound quality I want also had really large foot-prints Finally there is the new Markbass reverb that will be coming out, and that has presets, but who knows how much it will cost or if it will be worth it. Anyway, hopefully I've given some idea of what I'm looking for. 1. Expression control and/or presets are a must. I know it can probably be only one and I prefer expression control out of the two. 2. High quality sound, low noise. 3. I like options and extra controls for things like level 4. Small footprint is good! 5. Trying not to spend more than $150 but if I'm convinced it's worth it I'll spend more. Anyway, help me out What would you do?
