    to my knowledge it was either his echo unit or reverb on the recording console. Donn Landee had a lot to do with ed's early tone on those albums. And its funny, listening to early boots there is always a particular eddieness to the sound obviously because he's using the same equipment, but as far as your particular question goes I think it was the console or one of eddies echo units.

    For VH1 era a 'Plate' type reverb on an effects unit will usually get close - a good plate reverb emulation will sound bigger and warmer than a digital room or hall reverb. My VH1 patch on my Pod uses Line 6's Vintage Plate reverb and it sounds pretty close to my ears.
