Reverb is used to add a sense of spatial dimensionality for your sound to exist in, effectively a simulated environment for your signal to react to that adds a sense of realism.
Imagine that your reverb effect is a box, within which you place your amplifier. Depending on the material the box is made of, and its size and shape, the sound your amp emits will react differently. For example, if your amp is in a Cathedral, your sound is likely to be huge and echoey, whereas if your amp were in a more confined space your sound will be tighter and sharper.
By simulating the acoustic properties of this virtual ‘environment’, a reverb pedal can create great ambient effects and add atmosphere and life to your guitar work. Choose from our wide collection of stomp-boxes and mini-pedals to find the right one for you.
