Hd500 reverb effects

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a yamaha 110s silent guitar and direct into pa with its on board hall reverb turned on it sounds really good...the reverb is very crisp and gives the guitar a certain liveliness... But with the effect on it drains the battery in no time so I connected it to the hd500 that I have through the aux input and tried to replicate the reverb on the pod .... but comparing both the reverbs the one on the guitar is much more lively and rich than on the hd.... i can't seem to get the same richness on the pod reverbs... Are the pod reverbs a bit dull??? Or am I doing something wrong?

Bdw I go direct into pa and while using the yamaha silent guitar there is no amp selected.. just the effects

compared to strymon,eventide,and lexicon,s its not the same quality imo

but with a bit of tweaking they can sound very good.

Here is what the Silent Guitar manual says about the reverbs:

 

REV1................Adds reverb similar to what you would normally experience in a room.
REV2................Adds reverb similar to what you would normally experience in a hall.

 

Based on that, I would select the same on the POD. You might also want to try using one of the the Preamp+EQs (Vintage Pre for instance) in front of the reverb to boost the signal a little.
