The Best
Reverb
Pedals of 2022

Reverb pedals are the devices we use to add a sense of space around our instruments. They split an incoming signal and bounce it around a virtual environment before combining the reflections with the original tone. The best reverb pedals emulate vintage spring chambers, suspended metal plates, variously sized rooms, and physics-defying landscapes.
