To accompany our review of the Crazy Tube Circuits Splash MK3 reverb pedal, while we had them all, we thought it would make sense to compare and contrast these three pedals. Especially as they all have a particular penchant for the ambient side of the tracks.

Obviously the original is the Strymon Big Sky -  truly a monster, programmable studio modulation reverb that has many a wanna be Cocteau Twin popping on the headphones. Big Sky is the most expensive, but also the most flexible and programmable,  if you want to get deep into your verb.

Digitech Polara - in our review we were impressed by its ability to create a warm ambient texture at a fraction of the cost of the Big Sky - though without the finesse. The Lexicon algorithms are also stereo, and has a tails setting to let you end the reverb tail when bypassing.

Crazy Cicruits Splash MK3 - check our review, but the combination of analog and digital gives this pedal plenty of tonal clout too. it possible to use the pedal in dry mode as a drive. Although mono only will disappoint the studio users, it has a certain something.

Richard Beech got lost in space.
