Reverb

Apart from the tape echo, reverb is by far the most-used and most important ingredient in the short history of guitar tones. When talking about reverb, most guitarists mean the sound of a (mechanical) spring reverb (also called a reverb tank). There are a number of other popular reverb types, but most of us will go for a spring reverb sound first.

The first reverb tanks were external add-on effects, but manufacturers quickly found a way to install spring reverbs in their combo amplifiers. Thanks to the mind-boggling progress of audio technology, fantastic-sounding spring reverb simulations can now be packed into very compact pedals. It isn’t so long ago that digital reverbs still sounded flat, cold and sterile, and simulated spring reverbs lacked the wet “sploinging” and “splashing” so typical of the genuine article. Luckily, the newest generations of spring reverb pedals will give you all the depth and wet pleasures their mechanical ancestors became famous for. This has made them extremely popular.

Reverb is an integral part of your signature tone. If your amp’s built-in reverb doesn’t satisfy you, don’t despair; we offer a wide selection of different reverb machines, so that you can find the reverb that’s right for you!
