The Digitech Hardwire RV-7 is one of the best (and most slept on) digital reverb pedals available today. The pedal was released in 2008, and was largely a commercial failure. However, the RV-7 is unique in that it comes equipped with a Lexicon chip, giving it the lush sounds of Lexicon rack reverb units that were used on countless hit songs.
Today, I'm making a case for the Hardwire RV-7, explaining why I think this is the best digital reverb pedal money can buy.
