    What good reverb stomp boxes are there for bass?
     
  2. i don't think they make reverb pedals for just the bass, but the digitech digiverb is 100 and the boss rdv-5 is 150 and has 6 different types of reverb. hope that helped.

    The EBS MultiVerb (?) is very good
     
  4. also, there is the rdv-3(?) that has modes of reverb and delay, and can be used simultaneously.

    Line 6 DL4 maybe

    Bit pricy though if your after something cheap but at least this way u can loop as well. :smug:
     
  6. i thought the dl4 was a delay pedal? i suggested the rdv-3 for versatility. blah blah blah.

    The DL-4 is a delay, not a 'verb.

    EBS is the only company I can think of that makes a bass-specific reverb (the Dynaverb); Reverb isn't a commonly used effect for bass.

    That said, I use reverb a lot.
    Boss makes the RV-3, and RV-5, I haven't heard much good about either. The RV-3 would be a good choice if you want bang for your buck, as it incorporates delay as well as reverb.

    I currently use a Digitech Digiverb, it does the job for me. It's got seven different modes, and most of them are useful. It has sort of a bad rap for being unreliable, but I haven't had any problems.

    EHX are worth a testdrive too, the Holy and Holier Grails are pretty widely used. Some reliability issues pop up here and there, so that is a concern.

    Ultimately, your ears will be the best judge. I'd probably recommend the Boss RV-3 or EHX Holy Grail, you can find both reasonably priced if you hunt around a bit.

    Thanks. I liked using reverb on the cheap Zoom multi effects pedal I had but I decided to return it.

    The EBS is too much money for me (I'd sooner get a new bass) so I'll check out the others.
