    I have the original steel box model and the knob goes all the way to 0 reverb in signal. Usually keep Rate of mine around 9 to 10 o'clock position. 9 and below it does that "unnoticeable effect" thing that works fine with reverb.

    Around 12 and higher I find it pretty unusable. It's sort of EHX thing to offer range for player to go completely unsensible and overboard with the effects.

    Most versatile best bang of the $ Verb out here under $200 IMO is the Digitec Polaria hands down. Own several verbs that one is fantastic!! Owned Berringer , Boss, The HOF, you name it but this is what i have on my main board for a reason!

    I had bought the one with plate reverb specifically for that sound. I just didnít gel with it.

    Good to know. I have never tried the plate mode Holy Grail.

    I currrently have it gated at Hall mode, which has plenty of tail and space in it. Works really well with gate for anything. Normally I usually just use Spring for more subtlety.

    Added up high, low and mid....assumed would end up trying at least four...conclusion is the best deal is just to by a Princeton Reverb.
    Thank you one and all for your thoughtful and informative posts!!!!

    A little late to the party, but this Keeley Omni reverb is a great pedal.

    I'm loving my Boss RV-6. Plenty of verb settings and a delay too. Great pedal

    THANK YOU dystrust Bought a Boss RV-3 on craigslist for $60 and got my Princeton Reverb sound and saved about 800 bucks. Took a couple of hours to figure it out....the **** thing has a bunch of knobs and **** you have to adjust to find what you want but in the end it was there!!!

    So I was looking at reverb pedals when you asked
    Then I found that the tone I have been looking for for several years I'd the reverb into distortion

    You will still need a princeton at some point, I have a fender supersonic which many would consider to be "more amp" and I still need a princeton reverb.
    But congrats on the rv-3! Reverb is good with a few controls, having only one reverb knob such as on an amp can be somewhat limiting.

    I use a 5e3 for a lot of gigs and i have been using various reverb equipped fender tube amps for decades.
    I can't seem to get a reverb sound i like using the 5e3 and pedals (maybe I've been spoiled by my other amps). In the end I've given up, but it does sound pretty great with some rockabilly slapback.

    Buddy has the Princeton...have to A/B and see...but never was much into reverb so think the pedal will probably do me.
