Holy Grail Reverb
Divine reverb for mere mortals. Down from the heavens comes the Holy Grail, a compact digital reverb guitar pedal that is priced so low thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's reverb tank any longer. The Holy Grail will make you a believer with its emulation of classic Spring reverb so faithful that even Dick Dale couldn't tell the difference. Next, get lost in the lush spaciousness of the Hall reverb and ask yourself, 'how did they fit Notre Dame into such a small package?' Finally, reach enlightenment with the haunting Flerb.
The REVERB knob acts like a Wet/Dry control. As you turn the REVERB knob clockwise you will hear more reverb and less of your dry instrument. The Holy Grail is designed so that as you turn the REVERB knob from its minimum position to the 12 o’clock position you will hear a subtle amount of reverb added to the output. As you turn the REVERB knob from 12 o’clock to its maximum position the amount of reverb you hear will increase dramatically. It is designed this way so musicians can hone in on just the right amount of subtle reverb added to their instrument’s signal. The Slide Switch chooses between the three different reverb algorithms. The Slide Switch chooses between the three different reverb algorithms.
REVERB MODE Switch
Switches between the three different reverb algorithms. All three algorithms were designed and tailored for the electric guitar but they will work equally as well on most instruments and voices. The SPRING algorithm is a recreation of the classic spring reverbs that are found in many guitar amplifiers. The HALL algorithm is a new, lush reverb. Finally FLERB is a beautiful reverb like nothing you have heard before and may help you play your instruments in new ways.

It is a really sturdy pedal that is better than most amp reverbs that I have tried. It includes the same three modes as on the original - I use "spring" almost exclusively. "Flerb", which combines reverb and flange, is cool, but not too useful without muddying up the sound.
Pros: This is an incredibly realistic emulation. It will make your sound bigger without making it louder. It also now comes with a jack for a standard boss-style 9v adaptor (as opposed to the odd shaped one on the old version). The case is super sturdy and the small size makes it easy to place on any pedal board.
Cons: The reverb has a longer tail sound than some others and this cannot be adjusted (for this, get the Holier Grail pedal, Holiest Grail Pedal, or Holy Grail +)
I heartily recommend this as a way to improve even the highest grade rig.
After playing around with it for a while, ultimately I had to return it. Perhaps I am being too utilitarian here but I was disappointed that I couldn't simply add this pedal to my current set up. I'm in a process of creating a small pedal board that I can travel with and have only a few pedals that I feel is essential to my sound. This pedal requires 9.6 volts to run even though EHX put 9v on the case. If you read the details the "96DC-200BI power supply" refers to a 9.6 volt power adapter. For my current travel pedal board (which is quite minimal) this would mean I need to bring another power strip just to provide the the right power to one reverb pedal. Maybe no one else will have this issue but it was enough for me to consider a different pedal. Also, after playing with the flerb I realized I will never use that setting. It's just a flanger on the reverb signal. Personally flanger is my least favorite effect. In this pedal, you can't really control the depth or rate. If you really wanted to mix a flanger with reverb, there are other ways to do it. Step 1: get a flanger pedal.
The spring and hall settings on the pedal are good. The spring reverb colors your tone a little bit like a reverb tank might and the hall reverb really has a nice depth to it. I am going to guess that EHX used several multi-tap delays in the circuitry to mimic a spring reverb sound. After around 3 o'clock the spring reverb starts to sound artificial and you almost hear the original attack jitter in the decay. The sound almost points to what the Afterneath by Earthquaker Devices does but obviously this pedal is made to be that crazy.
I may consider changing up how I am currently powering my pedal board and look at the Holy Grail Neo. If the plate is good as the the spring and hall, I would buy that.
