If you play with a computer in your rig there is also this Ableton  
Live reverb patch named "Freeze Verb". Audio is kept "hanging" and  
reverb loop is not "emptied" until new audio is input. It's like a  
"loop feedback =100 %"  that goes down to 80% when new audio is  
input. Very cool IMHO. Especially when using a pedal/button MIDI  
assigned to the software's Aux Send knob and sending just short parts  
of your playing into the hanging ambience drone. "Reverb looping"  ;-)
