I looked at a few other reverb pedals in the price bracket (which pretty much narrows that down to digital pedals) and got bogged down in listening for as similar a spring reverb sound as my amp as i'm reverb-heavy.
I heard the demo for the Holy Grail which is on the EHX website and was pretty much sold. The spring sound just sounded so great that I wasn't comparing it with a real spring tank, but how that reverb bathed the original sound in exciting, warm, mechanical reverb and it tripped enough switches to feel like this was a rock n roll sound.
I think that some of the other digital programmers have tried to replicate the physics of a spring sound and perhaps come up wanting in the details that they miss. The Holy Grail spring sound just sounds like it was meant to ring from your guitar sound and I think that's why everyone who has one, seems to love it and why you can usually trim off a paltry amount when trying to buy one used (that and the build quality reduces any risk considerably). I think that EHX have thought more about guitar sounds than perfect counterfeiting. They know a couple of things about that.
Of course I tried one before buying and loved the sound in the shop as I A/B compared the Holy Grail and Holy Grail plus (I've reviewed that pedal on it's item-page but the upshot is that I preferred this pedal.).
For me, the spring reverb is the most important aspect of the pedal and everything else a bonus but what bonuses!
The Hall reverb is a more elgant, less colored reverb (It's interesting that we now feel happy with spring reverb as a representation of the reverberation in a building.Read more ›
Much more options!
All EHX pedals are gold standard though

Was disappointed as it did not state clearly enough that they ac power supply was foreign and that I will need to buy an adaptor to fit a uk socket.Published 11 months ago by Will Odgers
Plug in and get really great reverb. The best way I can describe the effect on the sound is, "lush".It's the only pedal I would not be without.Published 16 months ago by Mark Evans
