    You adapt to room reverb. You can adjust amp reverb. Which I prefer depends on the room. In practice, it is usually a combination of both.

    Part of playing the instrument is adjusting the parts you can control to get the sound you want. If tone settings and reverb settings stay the same in very room you are a passenger, not a driver.

    I agree. I have a nice "Holy Grail" reverb, but I always use the onboard verb on my Blues Junior.

    Room reverb is good, until you arrive at a venue to play and it's really not good at all. o_O

    Back in the day of college, the town had a public recreation center with an auditorium with a performance
    stage. Early Monday mornings would find me with a little Gibby amp with no reverb; seemingly sounding
    gigantic due to the reverb bouncing off of that wood floor and unadorned walls. I haven't heard a pedal that recreates
    that sound. Talk about natural reverb!
