Try finding a Mastermix (was that the name? MasterRoom?) spring reverb on
eBay. They were great sounding. Klark Teknik had a nice one too. Either
should be pretty cheap these days.

I like tubes to warm things up sometimes.... other times I like things VERY
sterile. I have a few Tubeworks pedals; they also make some rackmount units.
Nice for everything from a touch of warmth to full-tilt grinding distortion.
Tube amps are nice but can be very expensive for wide-bandwidth reproduction
at high levels.
