    Beer Thirty What's the best Reverb on guitar you ever heard?

    I was gifted a Strato last year.
    It was the first time I played a Stratocaster, after learning basic guitar.
    I felt that so many things I had questioned before, when playing my cheap Les Paul, were moot. This was IT. This is IT. wow.

    Anyway,
    the first thing I want to record is some sort of luscious reverb on a relatively clean (maybe really really small amount of overdrive?) tone.

    I went with a video that showed up for a new electro-harmonix: Canyon. On the almost cheap side. Very to the point. Seems like I could achieve what I want with that.

    Then saw youtube video, someone had a $500 reverb box by a company whose name starts with Sky. Sounded quite good, afa one can tell from YT.

    Tell me, what's your favorite way to add Reverb?
    What's the most beautiful you've heard?
    Share if possible, how was it accomplished?

    The most beautiful I heard was my friend using a small russian tube amp with small cab and "some" reverb+delay stomp box. I was so daze transported and then hyped up with what followed that I forgot to have that conversation with him....

    We're looking for that Airy, makes you think about the first time you smelled her perfume close to your neck, thick space sound.

    Thanks in advance,
    -M

    Try the Roland/BOSS GT001 and hit the Tera reverb. It'l baffle you but it will become clear quite fast that it is way over the top. But the box is pretty much every BOSS stompbox ever for a few hundred bucks. And there are plenty delays in there that fits the bill.

    Plus you get the purple Flanger. Or at least a decent rendition of it etc.

    This is an impossible question to answer because it all depends on context. There are many "best reverbs for guitar" for me.
