Ah, good old Reverb. The right use of reverb can make you sound as though you are playing in a huge empty church, or add just a touch of depth to your playing. Whether you are heavy fisted with your reverb or like it light, the Boss RV-6 Reverb Pedal can cover all your needs.
If you are uncertain about what stompboxes are, then you should read [Stompboxes Explained].
There are many types of reverb available on the market. Ranging from the spring reverb built into some amps to the digital reverb from pedals or recording VST’s.
Boss RV-6 Reverb Pedal
The RV-6 combines high-end sound an almost unmatched versatility. It takes pedal-based reverb to the next level and makes it easy to get amazing reverb tones instantly. From subtle rooms to modern shimmer effects to long, evocative reverbs, the RV-6 envelops your tone in lush ambient spaces that endlessly inspire.
The RV-6 has eight onboard sound modes which will allow you to tweak the effect and get the perfect reverb. Additionally, the RV-6 has a stereo option! This means that you can truly create a magical sound.
The eight modes are Delay, Shimmer, Dynamic, Room, Hall, Plate, Spring, and Modulate.
Each of these reverbs is unique and will offer a nuance that most other single stompboxes will be unable to match.
Analog Dry Tone
Of course, many guitarists are skeptical about running through digital pedals. The concern is that the pedal will color the dry tone of the guitar. But with the RV-6 you don’t need to worry about that as your straight guitar tone will remain as pure analog tone as the effect is blended in.
So, whatever your tone was going into the pedal, will be the same tone coming out the other end.
