Opinions on SHIT reverbs

Post by Suburban Bather » Mon Jun 22, 2009 7:41 pm

I want a couple super cheap reverbs to run my TR-727 through. Anything out there $50 or less and not Behringer?

Alesis MicroVerb, the little 1/3rd rack version, not the newer higher bit DAC Nanoverb either.

Most disgusting reverse reverb preset ever, only one control "MOAR" & grab a micro limiter while you are there, lovely bit of instant stereo squash! Drive the 727 congas hard thru the limiter!

Couple the Micro-verb w/ a cheap digi delay & a pitch shifter (Boss!?) - you got the best 'pad' generator known!

Used, you could probably get something from Digitech under $50, or maybe one of the cheap Zoom units. Or new, the Zoom G1 goes for just a little over at $60.

Thanks fellas :goo: I already have an Alesis 3630 that gets no use. There's a couple Microverbs on the bay. I totally forgot about the cheap Zoom and Digitech multi fx boxes. I miss my Zoom Sampletrack 224. Hated the sequencer, but the fx were quite nasty and interesting.

I can sell you my Alesis Quadraverb for $60. Works perfectly, has an incredible range of options and is pretty user friendly. I never found a use for it in my setup and got for $60 from a friend so no big loss on this end. Let me know.

The built-in effects board of the Akai DPS-12 hard-disk recorder had the worst-sounding reverbs I've ever heard; metallic, almost like a short delay with the feedback wound up, virtually unusable.

The Digitech GSP-21 also had some pretty crap reverbs, but then I never used it on guitars as it was designed for.

I know, but worth mentioning as it might just be the thing that he's missing (and it's a very variable sound!)
Answering his question, I would say a Fostex Spring...now that is REALLY shit on drums.

moving even further OT: i find my Zoom H2, a cap gun, and a convolution reverb to be an endless source of sonic fun...

:lol: I've thought about trying that for a while. My current living arrangements make it way more trouble than its worth ATM. I have a POS Realistic cardoid mic. It even has an on/off switch that does nothing. The mic is passive for cying out loud, mono-plug connected dirtectly to the mic.

Everyone! Thanks for all of the listings/offers. Time to start digging in :party:

Please carry on with the discussion. Might as well include any time based digital FX. Oh, I wish I never sold my Boss PS-3 :bang: Still have the PS-2 though :sb:

If you can spend a touch more and are a bit lucky, find a Dynacord VRS23
Amazing unit. You find them a fair bit on ebay.de
I think they go for around about €100 but of course you would have to get it shipped to the US
I love mine. it's not shit though!

I also have a VRS 23 and i love it! Its dark and has a nice growl. Perfect as an addition for any modular!
If your system doesn't sound good enough, you haven't spent enough

Zoom 1024 multifx if you can find one second hand is a nasty little box tricks with some real surprises tucked away inside. Like a minimum delay time of 2ms which gives you a brand new oscillator when you crank the feedback up to max.

Mine! $20 after shipping, thanks haiku-ish. I'm eager to find out how this thing responds when fed back into itself. Reviews from Harmony Central declare this box as an absolute piece of shit, lovely :omg:

Man oh man that Realistic reverb does some sick shit to your drums! MFB-503 VS. Ratshack brand reverb. Realisticdemo.mp3 - 8.53MB Thanks again Haiku-ish for pointing me to that Ebay auction.

I tried uploading this to Muff's site, but I just can't get it to work. Sorry!

I'd love something cheap that sounded like the nastyVerb that comes with AudioMulch - any suggestions?
