Mastering Reverb

I've been reading up on mastering alot lately, trying to prepare for my own experiences with it. In the majority of articles I have read, there has been mention of reverb used very lightly in the mastering stage. I'm kinda curious as to what reverb settings everyone uses in their mastering stage; do you use plate, hall, large room or small room, small tail or large tail, digital/analoge or record your own, etc.

For mixing, I think I have a good understanding of reverb but as of mastering, the whole use of it confuses me. I mostly just want to avoid "muddiness" in the mastering stage with addition of reverb. As a side note, I realize this might be different from genre to genre, but I'm still interested- what are you guys using?

i've used reverb in the mastering stage to kinda "gel" things together....mostly it's a real small room type with the high's rolled off....predelay and early reflections settings are KEY to using it 'properly'....i havn't really used it here lately, only if a song is sounding too 'naked'....a little goes along way though.

VOXENGO's OLD SKOOL REVERB has a lovely "mix polisher" preset.
