Last week I posted some info on the Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail Reverb pedal, and noticed that some places carry the big version and other places only carry the nano. I’m assuming that EHX is probably going to be phasing out of the larger pedals since the nanos seem to be quite popular these days. So my question is… do they sound the same?
Well, with questions like this, it seems like Gearmanndude usually has the answer. I took a quick trip to YouTube, and I found a great Gearmanndude video comparing the nano and mr. big. Seems like Gearmanndude isn’t too into reverb. I can relate. I think it’s been about 20 years since I played with reverb, but not because I hate it.. it just isn’t required in the stuff I play.
You can pick up the Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail Nano Reverb for $118.50 at Musician’s Friend
I’m unable to find the ‘classic’ EHX Holy Grail anywhere now, so it looks like your best option is to pick it up on eBay. Here are some Holy Grail pedals found using PedalNerd.com
