Default snare reverb pedal?

hey so i just got a set of mics for my drums and i was wondering if any sort of reverb pedal exists.
im thinking of a pedal or a switch that i could place near one of my feet that would just turn a lot (or some) reverb onto my snare just for a section of a song
is there a pedal like this that exists? or would i have to like jury rig a guitar pedal that does reverb to a mic and use that?
thanks

ps this would definitely be for use in like a live setting

also this is first ever post on the forum. this is pretty badass right now

Never heard of such a thing.


There are reverb guitar pedals, so it's conceivable you could run a mic through one and control it with your foot. I know Carmine Appice used to a mic on his snare drum through a wha-wha pedal as an effect.


Although I think the average sound guy at the average club would find it a bit of a nightmare.

Most decent boards have reverb as a controllable, built-in effect. You just need to let your soundguy know when you want it on, and he can turn it on for you.

It's possible. There are a few ways. The easiest way would be to buy a guitar pedal board and rig the board in using XLR/Jack converter cables either before or after the mixer. I would probably recommend after the mixer (unless you find a board with a preamp) although that makes things a little more complicated than before. The other option is to buy a laptop and a cheap audio interface and run the XLR into the interface and then run it through software with a MIDI-based floor pedal. This could be done before the board and will work - reverb plug ins aren't a problem to come across although I would run it through Ableton or Max/MSP personally. Interfaces and MIDI pedals might make this a slightly more expensive option assuming you already have a laptop. Any laptop should work.

EDIT: A third option would be a MIDI control on a sound desk. If you can get hold of a desk with a MIDI input you could theoretically trigger a built in reverb from a remote pedal. The problem here is finding and using that desk at every gig, unless you ran your own submix.

sounds pretty good.

@ mediocrefunkybeat what do you mean by a sound desk?
also there is a chance that for the first little while i would be running my own submix. like the PA system that weve got right now only has like 8 or so channels. not really sure yet

Here's what you could do:

-Bring your own mic, and connect it to this using this.
-From the output of the pedal, connect to a direct box using something like this. The sound man can then simply plug into the inbox.
