Looking for a new way to get teh ambiance...

Have been considering the Boss RV-6, the Mr. Black Supermoon, and the (insanely expensive) Strymon Blue Sky.

Anyone have experience with any of these pedals?

Kinda leaning toward the RV-6 after watching this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=web_ojUsrCg

The Strymon seems to be a bit more shrill in the high end, which is something I want to avoid. I like the subtlety of the Boss, and you can't beat the price.

Hall of Fame can do this in spades, especially when you start tweaking the editor. Flanged reverb became my favourite (and blew BobAC's not-actually-that-tiny mind).

Now that the RV-6 is out, the -5 may start to get a bit cheaper. Its Modulate setting is absolutely gorgeous - my fave setting on that pedal by far.

I have the Old Blood Noise Endeavours Procession reverb and it's nuts. Lovely modulation and can be over the top as you want.

Long demo.

You should think about the neunaber immerse reverb.

Thanks for the suggestions. Will look into all of these.


About the Boss pedals: I watched a video comparing the RV-5 and RV-6. The modulation sounds were VERY similar to my ears, but I think I slightly preferred the darker tone of the RV-6. Any thoughts? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9bsw8s9pNY


About the Neunaber: I listened to demos for the Stereo Wet, and I don't think it's for me (despite rave reviews online and a solid endorsement from Neil Halstead). It's just too shimmery, and I can't get into the shimmer reverb sound. Will look into the immense tho...

I love strymon pedals, I recently changed over for a TC Electronic Trinity T2 to a Strymon Flint and am very very happy with the switch. The Flint sounds very organic and seems to add something to the guitar tone which was missing from the TC. I also think the TC has somewhat of an artificial quality to it whilst the Strymon sounds very organic, you can find them secondhand pretty regularly and you won't lose any money if you decided to sell it on as they hold their secondhand value well.

Bought a Digitech Supernatural reverb for this very reason... highly recommended.

I second the recommendation for a Hall of Fame. I am currently in love with a TonePrint called Spatial Indulgence, it goes from incredibly bright and pitch bendy, to super dark and subtle. I like it with the tone at around 9:00

Well fuck. I need to buy about 10 reverb pedals it seems.

I have loved daftsupernova's demos on Soundcloud... which makes me really want to try that toneprint. But I'm still liking the Boss, the Strymon, and pretty much every pedal that's been brought up in this thread. This is not going to be easy. I think I'll take a long lunch today and head to the guitar store...

Any other thoughts much appreciated.

Speaking of my demos, I just uploaded a demo of that Spatial Indulgence TonePrint while playing with the tone knob specifically for this thread https://soundcloud.com/tremglider/spatial-indulgence-reverb-demo

I have a Blue Sky and a Supermoon (Chrome edition).

The Supermoon would be a real gem if it had trails. The sound is amazing and the sway is brilliant, but without the sound trailing off naturally when it's disengaged, it can be really jarring, especially if you're going for shoegaze or ambient stuff in front of a live audience.

The Blue Sky has switchable trails, and while I didn't like the modulated setting at first, it really grew on me. When I play looped sets, there's a hint of it in just about every song.

I had the Hof mini but it wasn't tweakable enough on the fly and sounded a bit too digital.

Thanks a lot for all of your advice.

I finally had a chance to compare the Boss RV-6 and the TC HOF. In the end, I didn't like the modulation effects on either pedal very much. Didn't seem to suit my playing in the way I was hoping.

However, I did like the other modes on the RV-6 a lot, so I bought an RV-6 on Reverb today. It's a very smooth and dark sounding pedal, so I can crank up the effect level without the tone becoming too harsh. This is really what I was looking for.

I also bought a DigiTech Digiverb because I want to see if I have any use for reverse reverb. The Digiverb was only $50 shipped, so I really couldn't go wrong!
