Alright gear nerds, I have a small issue that I’m having and I want to see what you guys thought about it. I’m in the process of rebuilding my pedalboard and replacing some of my pedals. The issue I am having is that I’ve been looking at getting a Boss RV-2 for some time (I really dig the reverbs on the pedal and I think it sounds a little better than the newer models, plus it has delay.), but it doesn’t have stereo in, only outs. This wouldn’t be an issue except for the fact that I’m using a EHX Stereo Tremolo, which is also only stereo out. I really want my tremolo to remain stereo also.
Now, I could get an RV-5 and my problem would be solved, but, as I mentioned earlier, I prefer the reverbs on the RV-2. I want to ask you guys’ opinion though, would that be my best option, to go ahead and get the RV-5? I don’t think I’m going to notice a whole lot of difference with the end result. I want to use this reverb for more of a modulate room kind-of thing. I will also be using a Strymon Bluesky at the end of my signal chain for more of the ethereal-hall ‘verbs.
My planned stereo chain is trem>verb>stereo memory man>eventide timefactor>bluesky. So, pretty much, I just need to know if I should bite the bullet and get the RV-5 or maybe pursue another option. Opinions please! And thank you guys for your time.
