    Why a pedal and not a rack unit?
    The Lexicon Rack units were supposedly top notch, right?
    You can more options with a rack unit than a pedal.

    if it's not happening in the room, it ain't gonna happen on tape.-HG

    He wants to run it in front of his amp.

    I own and use both a HOF and one of the TC Arena reverbs in another pedalboard. Both are outstanding and if you go this direction and really want something special, use the 'tone print' function that all the current TC pedals come with. Especially if there's something in a digital unit you absolutely have to have.
    Chord with this, Teddy......

    I'd personally go in this order:

    1. Figure out a way to make the Blues Jr reverb work. Isn't it a digital reverb in those? That can get nasty but make sure to try all permutations.
    2. A reverb tank. They cost more, but sound better than pedals.
    3. Add reverb in the box via a good sim.
    4. Reverb pedal. I find this a $ waste because the output will almost be exactly like #3 and at much more cost for a good one. IMO Empress makes the best reverb pedal (but it's out of your budget). It is better than a sim but not by a lot, so you have to factor in if the cost is worth it.

    Another option is to trade in the Blues Jr for an amp with good spring reverb.

    I've had the Tweed model for about 10 years now...no issues, sounds great, and you get plenty of reverb out it.
    I rarely run the reverb and dwell more than 10:00 , and often a lot less than that.

    A Blues Jr has a reverb tank. It is a short spring style tank and has audiotronics drivers. But it is short and honky sounding and there's no decay (dwell) control. The only control is the driver in the half tube........

    To make the reverb in the Blues Junior useable, replace the tank with this ($16), AND change the Reverb pot to an audio taper one from billm audio ($12).
