Best Multi-Mode Reverb Pedals<br />

bit.ly/Multiverbs<br />

If a simple spring reverb is a little too spartan for you, we have compiled<br />

a list of the best multi-function reverb pedals (aka “Multiverbs”) on the<br />

market organized by depth of features and (perceived) popularity. <strong>The</strong>y<br />

range from stompboxes with three or four different reverb flavors to fullblown<br />

workhorses that deliver a dozen ambience algorithms and deep<br />

levels of control. Some are big, some are small, but all will tickle your<br />

craving for the wondrously wet world of reverb.<br />

In this article you’ll find these lists:<br />

1. Multi-Algorithm Reverb Workstations<br />

2. Compact Reverb Pedals with 5 or More Modes<br />

3. Compact Reverb Stompboxes with 3-4 Modes<br />

Best Spring Reverb Pedals<br />

bit.ly/SpringRvb<br />

This list focuses on pedals dedicated to the spring reverb effect, which<br />

is based on a design featuring springs in a little tank that vibrate when<br />

your guitar’s signal goes through them. A pickup mounted inside the<br />

tank picks up those vibrations and sends them back to your amp. <strong>The</strong><br />

spring reverb is an effect associated with the electric guitar sound of<br />

the ’60s, brought to fame, in particular, by surf music, and facilitated by<br />

reverb circuits built inside many vintage amps from that decade. <strong>The</strong><br />

first Fender Reverb Unit was introduced in 1961 and reissued in 2016.<br />

In this article you’ll find these lists:<br />

1. Pedals with Actual Springs<br />

2. Spring Pedals without Springs<br />

3. Mini Spring Reverb Pedals<br />

4. Spring Reverb Pedals with Tremolo<br />

Best Hybrid Reverbs with<br />

Modulation and Fuzz/Distortion<br />

bit.ly/HybridVerbs<br />

Some of the best reverb stompboxes out there are not “pure” reverb circuits,<br />

but feature other effects that are often used with it — without necessarily<br />

being a “do-it-all” reverb workstation. In this article you’ll find reverb<br />

mixed with tremolo and other forms of low-frequency modulation, and<br />

with old-school fuzz, distortion and EQ filtering that lets you emphasize<br />

bass or treble frequencies. While many of the entries in this article feature<br />

both classic and modern styles of reverb, a few are satisfyingly spartan,<br />

allowing you to conjure up vintage ambience by turning just a few knobs.<br />

In this article you’ll find these lists:<br />

1. Reverb Pedals with Modulation<br />

2. Reverb Pedals with Distortion or Fuzz
