NEED SOME REVERB?
There is no built in reverb in an HT5, but it's easy to add! You'll need a decent Reverb pedal (see optional extras below for some suggestions) plus a couple of patch leads to connect the pedal to the amps FX loop (also known as the send & return loop). Most players will have the reverb effect on all the time & just leave the pedal sitting on top of the amp, so the patch leads only need to be short. A bit of reverb will make your HT5 sound even more amazing than it already does!
