Tech 21 brings a fresh perspective to the standard reverb pedal. By incorporating a clean Boost function into this Tech 21 guitar effect pedal, up to 9dB, your solos will jump out with greater dimension. The Boost R.V.B. is designed with user-tweakable, "lo-fi" analog technology. By manipulating the controls, you can infuse degrees of warmth and life characteristic of vintage reverbs. The circuitry intentionally injects the inherent imperfections of vintage units, which is what makes them so seductive and nostalgic. A single, continuously variable time control provides a full sweep of size. The parameters on the Tech 21 Boost R.V.B. effect pedal are engineered so that you can explore and custom-tailor such reverb styles as spring, plate and natural room/hall ambiance.

Comments about Tech 21 RVB-T Boost R.V.B. with Trails Analog Reverb Emulator Guitar Effects Pedal:
I bought this ANALOG bucket brigade chip reverb because it leaves my guitar tone totally intact, while adding in deliciously grungy spring-ish/plate-ish/hall-ish variations of reverb that I just can't get from the sterile digital reverb boxes. This is not your father's, brother's, cousin's, some-dude's digital wizzbang reverb that's so pristine that it distracts from your playing and steals the show. This is just the opposite. It's just a sweet analog ambiance monster, with trails! Having trails when bypassed is possible because this pedal has an active buffered bypass circuit capable of driving long cables to your backline amps with ease. No more need for a boost pedal wasting away at the end of the pedal chain. I'd rather use that boost pedal in front of the chain as a boost anyway! However, this reverb pedal has enough clean gain on tap that it can be also used as a boost. Double bonus! The controls are very sensitive and tiny tweaks go a long way toward conjouring almost infinite variations and sweet spots. It can get quite soupy, but it's best used in moderation for just a hint-o-verb when needed. Keeps the sound man much happier, too. Overall, I'd definitely miss this pedal if it was pulled from my pedalboard, and I'd want to get another, real quick. I am knocking off one star because it doesn't seem to like hot line level signals. Not so good in an amp's loop, but great on a pedalboard.
