Analog vs. Digital Reverb

Confession: I'm not really a fan of analog reverb and never have been.

Analog reverb to me is just clunky, clanky garbage for the most part. Yeah, it's cool for vintage surf tones but not really much else as the video above I did explains.

This of course means I'm a big fan of digital reverb. I personally think nobody does a better job at digital reverb than Lexicon (it's emulated quite well in my GSP 1101). However if I had to have reverb in a pedal for whatever reason, I would get the BOSS RV-5 because it's one of the few reverb pedals in my experience that gets the job done right.

I am however very anti-reverb when it comes to live music, and if I had to have a "distant" sound on stage, I'd use delay. Namely, the DD-7. Looks like a complicated pedal but it's not and has a low learning curve.
