Reverb & delay, delay, delay

Recommended Posts

I've been enjoying YouTube videos of delay/reverb pedals, so far Earthquaker Dispatch Master and Avalanche Run and Keeley Caverns, any others I should be checking out?

Iron Ether Nimbus is a bass specific reverb with functional eq. You can exclude frequencies that do not need the processing = no mud.

The Keeley is beautiful. I've been doing a lot of recording recently so have ramped up pedals for sounds I'm after. I've been using it for both guitar and bass, and the way the choral reverb works on bass is gorgeous. It's really easy to dial in too, both from the delay and reverb side. I have a Helix incoming this week and I really hope I can replicate the sounds on that, or it will have to stay.

Honestly I love my dispatch master, it has a really lovely warm tone.

i use the dispatch master for a basic reverb and delay and if I want anything a bit more out there I use a tc electronic hall of fame 2, but that pedal is just reverb

Been looking at this as well a bit. 

Source audio are worth a look. Pricey, but as full functioned as you could ever need.

Fender reflecting pool

Belle Epoch deluxe (tape delay)

Also strymon volante, capistan etc. 

Roland re20 subject to what you're after. 

Edited by Salt on your Bass?

The old 90’s Boss RV-3 has a cult following among guitarists. Johnny Greenwood and a fair few other tone-lords of that instrument use them ... and it’s absolutely fantastic with bass too.

The guitarists who don’t like it say the reverb sounds ‘sterile’. Well, on bass it’s definitely digital sounding, though not cold nor hard by any means. Any of that perceived  ‘sterility’ translates well with bass anyway, as the reverb isn’t muddy at all, and the delays are clean. The low end always stays thick and together.

Some more details about the pedal here ...

Rocktron Cyborg Reverb. Best reverb pedal hands down, I've owned many and this one nails it. Hard to find, but reasonably cheap if you do find one. Only sold mine as I'm now using a Helix.

Another vote for Source Audio. Either Nemesis for loads of delay or Collider which takes 5 delay engines from the Nemesis and 7 reverb engines from their Ventris. Can be configured however you like - two reverbs, two delays, one of each, parallel or cascaded in any order. I should be getting one pretty soon.

Walrus Audio Slö for me. It’s incredible. Doesn’t get much usage in a jam setting but I’m into my production stuff when it’s just me at home. It’s unreal at kicking out some dreamy / haunting ambience for trip hop stuff. Would be sick for post rock.
