Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail Reverb Reviews
I'm not sure if Electra harmonics is making these pedals anymore because they really have been pushing their newer digital reverb pedal that comes in a compact small nano box. If you're looking for a newer pedal then I'll probably go with that one but if you're an old-school type of person then you want the vintage electro-harmonics style then...
