    Any of you already tried these two pedals? I'm looking for a versatile and quality reverb pedal, but can't really afford to go into a boutique one.

    I already tried the verbzilla and actually was kind of disappointed. It was a good pedal but i was looking for huge decay length, specially in the large hall modes, like the pod xt has. The trails function was very cool though. Maybe i will try it again.

    Do you think the rv-5 is better, in terms of versatility and length of the reverbs (and dimensions of the bigger hall reverbs)?

    Any other pedal do you recommend? Like the holy grail or something!

    some people seem to like the digitech digiverb, though i've never played one myself.

    i'm looking at the discontinued boss rv-3, it's reverb and delay in one pedal. it's about $100. at ebay. you can give it a try.

    I've heard bad things about the Boss verb, but haven't tried it myself.

    I loved the Tech 21 Boost RVB, though it may be a little too boutique for your price range..?

    Also, you couldn't turn down the decay to your liking on the Verbzilla? That seems odd, but again I don't have enough personal experience.

    I have a RV-5, I like it and I recommend it.

    It sounds very "real", no loss of tone, nice to control and it works very nicely with a stereo input (e.g. a chorus).

    in podxt, when i turn the decay to 100%, the reverb keeps going on almost endlessly. in the verbzilla itself (i suppose the podxt one is modeled from the line 6 own reverb pedal) the decay sounded too short to me.

    the boost rvb sounds cool but i don't have any way to try it here...
