With the addition of a 12AX7 Tube, this reverb really adds those subtle harmonics reminiscent of reverbs from the past. The result is very lush, organic-sounding verb.

3) T-Rex Engineering RoomMate Reverb
Another tube-driven verb, the RoomMate has that very warm reverb. Some of the characteristics to describe the sound of it would be sweet, rich, and earthy. When I say earthy, I really mean that it sounds very natural, rather then digital. In addition to your typical spring, room, and hall reverb, they’ve added an LFO setting, which adds some chorus to the signal. This pedal is outstanding and could be number one on this list.

5) VanAmps Reverbamate Reverb
The VanAmps Reverbamate is an all analog spring reverb. Covered in a tweed casing, the Reverbamate has two inputs, one dry and one wet to mix to your liking. This also makes it a great studio reverb, though its excellent for live as well. With a 3-spring reverb tank, the sound is the pinnacle of vintage verb. A great thing about the Reverbamate is that it doesn’t roll off the highs like most reverbs. While not a ton of bells and whistles, this pedal really allows you to shape the overall reverb, while maintaining the integrity of your original guitar tone. View this pedal on Amazon.
