Actually I’ve sold Oceans 11 and a got SurfyBear Compact for a “guitar gigbag pocket pedal”. I love it even more than my Classic for live gigs.

Since my last post in this thread, I bought a used SurfyBear Compact back in May 2021. It's a mainstay on my pedalboard. It sounds just as awesome as my two SurfyBear Classics (one has a Drip Switch and the other has a Surfy Drip for bypass function).

I love the the 2 Mixer controls and bypass functions on the SurfyBear Compact.

I still have my E-H Oceans 11 for it's variety of Reverb tonal options.

Nice board! I also use Digitech Trio)

Thanks! The photo is a bit older - I've swapped out the E-H Canyon Delay for my old MXR Carbon Copy. I've tried others (E-H Canyon, Keely Caverns) but I gravitate back to the Carbon Copy. I put the E-H Canyon on my bass pedalboard and Keely Caverns is on my smaller (travel) pedalboard since it is a reverb and delay pedal.

The Digitech Trio+ is a lot fun! Cool

This is good inspiration, thanks. I've been tempted recently to split my skateboard into two more manageable boards for seperate styles, since I don't use the Muff, Chorus, Phaser or LT Distortion for surf. So I'm looking to swap all those out for a Bad Monkey and shrink the board, and move the rest over to an alt-rock optimised board.

Only problem is it means buying a second TU-2 and AB/Y. Sad

I've recently gotten a Surfy Bear metal and it gives me the sound I've been chasing. Previously I used a Fender Tre-Verb and then for a long time just straight into a Deluxe Reverb Tone Master.

Once I got the Surfy Bear, there was no doubt about it, I got that perfect drip sound. Does that Astronauts sound perfectly.

I actually prefer the reliability of the a newer unit like a Surfy Bear, over a tube based vintage or re-issue just from a practical standpoint. I've never owned a Fender tank, but being in a NYC based band...the less I can travel with the better.

I own a SurfyBear compact, and also an Oceans 11. No doubt the SurfyBear is better/more authentic, but in my opinion the Oceans 11 is the best digital reverb pedal on the market for "drip."
