Permalink Budget Reverb Solution

I was experimenting with my TC Electronic Hall of Fame Mini a couple of nights ago, testing out some of the TonePrints they offer. I stumbled upon a TonePrint that Steve Morse had attached his name to simply entitled Spring. It turned out to be excellent, with plenty of drip and more than a little drip. For someone on a budget, this is about as inexpensive as it gets, a Hall of Fame Mini can be found on the used market for well under $100.

While on the subject of pedals, I recently tried the MXR Sugar Drive, which was surprisingly good. It’s meant to be a transparent overdrive and not really a high-gain monster. I found that at lower “Drive” settings, it did a pretty good job of imitating that grit of a turned-up Brownface Showman. It’s one of the better solutions I’ve heard, and once again, not all that expensive. I wouldn’t recommend it for a high-gain, ultra saturated sound, but for lower levels of overdrive, it really shines.

For the money, it’s quite good.

One can spend almost any amount of money in the pursuit of reverb perfection. It’s hard to beat a 6G15, but not everyone is willing to spend that much. The Surfy Bear is very good and well worth the money, but once again, not everyone is willing to spend that much. A pedal, even the best pedal, is a compromise, but they can do a surprisingly good job.
