I'm a synth guy, personally, and have been recently interested in collecting pedals to add some effects I feel suit my desired sound more. Bought this reverb pedal expecting - as the name suggests - a rich, lush, pronounced reverb. While I wasn't unhappy with the effect, it was far more subtle than I was looking for, and I found I wasn't a huge fan of. After an under 10 minute jam session, experimenting with the pedal, I decided it simply wasn't for me, and have returned it. The build is sturdy, though I personally wasn't a huge fan of the hall reverb, and found the pedal cut off a bit of desired tone - though this was barely noticeable, not a huge issue.

The reverb effect is there but it completely eats your bass/clean tone...very unfortunate, it sounds like it wants to be there and work for you but unfortunately, kills your clean tone by making it nasal sounding. I will be returning for an upgrade to a Boss RV-6 or HOF/HOF Mini. I would love to try a Strymon, but not for the price.

I've had this a year now, but did not realize until I heard a recent recording just how much this effect sucks the soul out of my tone. My amp has a treble-boost switch, but this pedal nullifies the extra high end and harmonics. Price is right, but if you value tone this will not do the job.

Just like the title says this is the best reverb for the price, because, well there aren't many cheap reverbs on the market. Everything sounds as expected in a budget reverb, although the plate really surprised me in how good it sounds. Solid build. Not sure like the sound you get when the mix is set to 100% as it pretty much cancels your incoming signal. The "soft touch" feel of the switch threw me off a bit in the beginning (it engages when the switch come back up).

Features are what they are - having three rev types and a mix control is good at this price point. Sound quality is good - quiet, and give you what you would expect. No "Oh wow!" moments like the HoF gives you. Didn't like the spring model much except at light settings. Hall is better. Built like a tank, although for long-term reliability only time will tell. Pedal is too large and heavy, and the fiddly little screws make battery changes a pain (but it can run off an adapter so whatever).

Bought this a few months ago, and I would say that I am pleased with the sounds I can get out of it. The built in reverbs on most amps are a little more genuine, but this pedal adds a certain feature to compound reverbs and give you some nice tones. What I find (on my pedal anyway) is that the Mix knob is either short of what I want, or a little over bearing. There's not a lot of in between. I love the tone of the Plate reverb. Hall Reverb leaves a little to be desired IMO. 4/5 stars

I just picked this pedal up at the St. John's store. My first impression of this pedal is it provides three solid reverb styles and three pots for an endless combination of tones

Great value reverb pedal. Spring reverb is OK, but not like a Fender spring tank. Plate and hall models are more up to expectations. I prefer the plate setting. Three pots allow for a good variety of tones. The company will sell a boatload of these.

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
