    Default Help me find a reverb like big sky that includes modulation

    Hey guys I asked this one a couple of years ago and am reasking in case there are new thoughts. I am not a pedal guy however I need reverb and chorus/ modulation.

    I'm wildly in love with all of the big sky tones. It has tremendous complexity and high-end shimmer that goes far beyond regular verbs. The modulated reverb actually get relatively close to chorus tones, however, they are embed in big reverb.

    However there are times when I just need a chorus and I'm wondering if you're aware of anybody making a pedal that has the big sky sounding reverbs along with chorus flange and phase?

    I know that the big sky is getting old in some ways because it does not offer dual signal path to sustain a reverb during a patch change.

    Note that I have multiple modeling environments where I can get most of these tones so I would prefer to avoid modeling. The purpose is to get a single pedal to simplify my rig when using tubes.

    Sea Machine Chorus is the only thing I know that might come close.

    If you can create your reverb with a delay, H20 y visual sound might work...

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    Great input! Will dig in deeper tomorrow.

    Mincer, great demo... I like the delay and verb a lot. However they only demoed modulation within the delay and verb.

    I need at least a classic chorus sound by itself and I'm wondering if the signal can split and delay can be set short enough to get chorus/flange by itself?

    Hmmmm... I immediately want to suggest the Flint - the trem side is great, and Harmonic Trem will get you very close to univibe/chorus. My only reservation based on your needs is that, while the reverbs are lush, it only has spring, plate and hall (no shimmer, etc.) That said, on plate and hall it has infinite mode, and can get quite spacey.

    The EHX Memory Man Deluxe has modulated delay. That gets a great chorus sound on sustained notes without all the reverb wash for when you don’t need it.

    Or just get a chorus pedal. They are pretty cheap.

    Harmonic Tremelo on Strymon Flint Reverb Pedal is unreal.

    David, it's ironic that you mentioned chorus pedals... I sold off my 70s and 80s boss flanger and chorus and practically every other pedal a couple of years ago.

    When I'm modeling I have more than enough fx in the system, and my performance tube amps of the time had wonderful reverb so I really didn't need anything else.

    However my current performance tube amp (Splawn Streetrod) doesn't have reverb, I got hooked on the big sky and figure that if I can keep up with 1 pedal, it might as well include chorus

    Thanks again to all for great input!
