The DigiTech RV-7 is a reverb pedal with innovative features like Liveliness Control. Add world-class Lexicon reverbs like room, plate, reverse, spring, modulated, gated, and hall, and this HardWire Series DigiTech pedal is in a class all its own.
The DigiTech HardWire pedal series represents DigiTech's commitment to quality and attention to subtle details. In addition to technical enhancements like true bypass and high-voltage operation, all DigiTech HardWire effects pedals feature rugged, all-metal construction, a wide, stage-stable footprint, durable, custom-machined metal knobs for a sure grip, and precision potentiometers that guarantee knob positions will stay intact.
The rugged, durable construction of DigiTech Extreme Performance pedals is just the beginning. Inside each HardWire pedal are technological features that serious players require—all updated and improved to their utmost capacity. True bypass preserves the purity of your original tone as signal passes through the pedal, and high-voltage operation further protects your sound by eliminating clipping and other signal degradation caused by power drain.
With the high-output pickups found on some electric guitars, it's not unusual to hear clipping when playing through an effects pedal. This occurs when the voltage range produced by a guitar's pickup is greater than the operating voltage of the effects pedal—normally limited to the voltage supplied by the effect's battery or power supply. DigiTech HardWire pedals incorporate circuitry that increases the operating voltage headroom above that of the typical effects pedal. As such, DigiTech HardWire pedals benefit a wider range of guitars and are also at home in an amplifier's effects loop.
HardWire Pedals include the following stage accessories:
Stomplock™ knob guard locks your tone in place and prevent tampering or accidental knob adjustments onstage
Pedal Switch Glow Sticker helps you locate the pedal in adverse stage lighting
Custom-cut Hook and Loop pedal board Pad to attach and lock your pedals to your pedal board

I replaced my Boss Digital Reverb RV-5 with the Hardwire RV-7. It was a smart decision. As a bass player, I don't want (or need) a lot of effects. I use the Markbass Compressore, that's it. I wanted a little reverb to add warmth, but not affect the bass tone. For me, the RV-7 Plate reverb at 12 o'clock settings was just what I wanted... very transparent with no added noise. I have a Lexicon rack mount for vocals, and the Hardwire RV-7 sounds just as good. I don't think you will find a better reverb pedal.
I spent some time looking for reverb pedals. This one stood out for sound quality and flexibility. I was especially looking for a thick short reverb. This one is not as geared toward cavernous sounds.
I have been playing guitar for over 35 years and have owned a lot of gear. I am a big Boss fan. I had a Boss RV-5 and liked it except for a faint hiss that was always there. I attributed it to the solid state circuitry. Other than that, is was great. I bought the Hardwire RV-7 and the first thing I noticed was no niticable hiss. YEA!!!! Perfectly quiet. The reverbs are fantastic. A wide variety of reverbs with a good range of adjustability. The spring reverb does not make any boing noise like other pedals. I have tried several other reverb pedals, but this one is the best I have heard so far and will be my only reverb pedal. The knobs are nice with the fine detents which make for a very nice feel. I highly recommend this pedal.
These are Lexicon reverbs, there is nothing better. It is not a cheap spring reverb so if that is what you want then you should probably not get a quality digital Lexicon. By the way, everyone thinks this sounds great, can you imagine if they would actually put it in the amp loop where it belongs?
I play on a LP studio hooking this pedal straight to the amp input (Fender HRD) mainly Jazz, Blues, Bossa and Rock roughly in that order. First I would start off with the sound of this pedal. It is very "transparent" even when the level knob is set relatively high. this transparency include very low noise level. I mainly liked and use the "Plate", "Modulated" and "Room" modes. The Plate mode gives excellent lush sound with very smooth decay which last as long as you like and still keeps the guitar tone clear and unchanged. The Modulated mode is somewhere between the "Plate" and "Hall" modes in terms of its reverb model with the added "chorusy" modulated sound which gives very interesting delicate twist to the guitar's tone. I liked the "Room" mode with the decay set on almost maximum level for live session playing scenarios. The "Liveliness" dumps the highs but in my taste keeping it in high levels is what I desire to keep the overall "transparent" sound. All in all, this pedal gives excellent value for the money in terms of features richness, sound quality and construction quality. I highly recommend it!
I tried this thing out and was pretty much blown away. The plate sounds awesome, with everything at noon or just under it sounds completely natural. The hall reverb is not as deep as I'd expected it to be, but with all the other options to choose from, this thing holds it up. The reverse is fun to mess with, great for ambient jams and a slide. Don't forget about the spring, room and gated. Gated is great when you really want to crank the fuzz. Can't say I use the modulation verb at all.
These pedals have Lexicon technology inside. Lexicon makes the best studio reverb units. If you're looking for Spring Reverb, then buy the T-Rex Tonebug Reverb instead. But, if you like full lush studio quality plate or hall reverb, then this is your pedal. It far exceeds the Boss RV-5, which I found to be cheap, harsh & clanky sounding. Great pedal! Sounds amazing through my Egnater!
I've never been a fan of DigiTech products, but this pedal blew me away. I was at my local Guitar Center checking out the Holy Grail reverb pedal. They suggested that I try this one. Skeptical, I decided to try it, and I'm glad that I did! Great features, great control. Great reverb. I recommend this pedal to anyone.
Now I'm a Boss fan and I love most of their products - but in store I compared the Hardwire reverb next to the Boss digital reverb and I can tell hands down the Hardwire reverb sounds the best as far the quality of decay and warmth goes. I found the Boss digital reverb to be somewhat clanky and cheap. So I would totally recommend this Hardwire reverb.
In all honesty, I bought this puppy simply due to the reverse mode. Although it is a reverb pedal, none of the other verbs on it sound all that good. If you are looking for a REAL reverb, grab Boss' Reverb, but if you are looking for some crazy swell reverse sound, look no further and buy this pedal. It will change you...
