Trusted musician and artist reviews for TC Electronic Hall Of Fame Reverb
Based on 55 Reviews and 387 Ratings
Since I am the only guitar in the band, and Brigand sound needs to be heavy and rich to make sense, my reverb pedal is almost always turned on. It`s not the best verb on the field, but is far for worst. I regularly use church mod, which gives me that "doomy" sound. Also, I uploaded Jonsi from Sigur Ros mode with Toneprint app, and I use that mode when I need some serious feedback sound.
Good, but not great
I had this for a couple of years. It certainly can hold its own with other similar reverbs, like the MXR M300, the Digitech Polara, and the EHX Ocean's 11. The toneprint feature is nice, you can hook the pedal up to your phone or your computer and create a toneprint from a template provided by TC Electronic. I felt like the more traditional reverbs, like spring and plate, were just ok, but the modulated reverbs were a little better. Also, the Hall of Fame 1 does not have Shimmer - but the Hall of Fame 2 does. Overall, I felt like all of the reverb modes were good, but none of them were great. It's a nice pedal to have for variety, but if you want a specific reverb that sounds great, you might be better off looking elsewhere.
You get a lot in this little box.
Big selection of sounds, which I don't particularly like using. I tend to just sit on the Spring Reverb as I would imagine most guitarists would do. A lot of the other settings just seem a little operatic to me. But the control you have over this pedal is awesome. Also it doesn't seem to take anything away from my signal. The pedal suits simple effects users (like me) and sonic wizards a like. The Toneprint is also heaps of fun, especially when it adds a new dimension to the sound like Troy Van Leeuwen's tremolo reverb.
Love the "church" setting!
To be totally honest, this is one of the few pedals I've never really experimented with. I knew the sound I wanted from my reverb and had a pretty good idea of how to get there so with an educated guess I'd dialled in the right mode and had it all set within about 5 minutes and haven't changed anything other than the FX Level ever since!
It sounds phenomenal, and that's pretty much all I have to say on the matter..
Don't think twice... you can dial in the different categories of reverb right from the pedal and they sound really very good. If not, you didn't take enough time to set the dials right for you. Still not happy? Go tweaking in the Toneprint editor and you must be looking for a very strange and specific sound if you can't dial it in there. Then, try some of the artists toneprints, man it's just INCREDIBLY versatile AND good sounding. Remember when 35mm film was still 'better' than digital. Well, we got over the romantic stuff and it just works better now, same here with TC.
I love the Tone print stuff .. some of the TC website... and the possibility of do my own strange verbs
versatile reverb pedal
This pedal got 10 different reverb types and that's what makes it really versatile. It's easy to use during live shows and rehearsals. Both the DECAY knob, FX LEVEL and TONE knob really gives me the opportunity to fine adjust the different reverb sounds.
How to get the Sigur Ros sound
Jonsi custom in the TonePrint setting :-) However, I'd suggest getting the nano version of this pedal if you want to use this alone. I do and it is a waste of all the other great settings (unless you record too). I don't like switching things between songs live if I can help it, so I have another Ghost Echo reverb as my passive reverb for all occasions.
The only reverb pedal you really need.
This thing is meant to be an investment unless you're disrespectful of your pedals. Very nice controls featuring: FX level, Tone, Decay and types of modulation. It comes with 10 preset reverb signature sounds, and features a Toneprint technology setting which allows you to download your own reverb files for maximum personal reverb satisfaction. Definitely one of TC Electronic's finest! Get it!
In total love
The versatility of TC's pedals sucks me in yet again. So many different reverb types, so many controls and parameters, and tone-print returns just in case there aren't already enough options. Love this little beauty, it lives on my board permanently.
(H)all in one
Tc Electronics is becoming every year a more valid pedal company and this is the result. The HoF is a very good sounding pedal considering the low price! In the package you get 10 different type of reverb, the controls (decay,tone,fxlevel,pre dealy) are very effective and easy to use. The build quality is good as expected with true bypass and the possibility to run in in stereo. This may sounds as a common thing in reverb pedal but i challenge you to find all these features and quality in this price range. And then there is the "toneprint" in wich you can store your own preset created on the app provided by Tc Electronics website.
Great reverb. Pretty versatile
This is an "always on" pedal for me. It does ambient verb settings INCREDIBLY well, room verb settings very well, and the rest is unimportant to me. TonePrint software is incredible. Pick one up, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Variety is the word I'd use to describe this red pedal. Plenty of different options that allows you to spend a lot of time turning the knobs and creating nice atmospheres around your sound.
As a side note, I'd be more than happy when TC Electronic (and many other manufacturers) include a power adaptor with every pedal effect they sale. But that's another issue.
Great value-price ratio.
Current Reverb (2/2016)
Good sounding reverb. I keep it mainly on a high decay church setting. The other sounds are pretty good. I would recommend to a beginning guitar player who is looking for their first reverb.
Uso em alguns momentos, mas é um baita pedal
O Hall of Fame é meu pedal mais recente... uso ele praticamente só no Church.. ele é bem util em musicas que o clean predomina como Untying the Knot. É bom pra fazer uns sons "ambientes", e também pra dar um sustain em riffs e solos.
One of the Best Reverb out there and for the money the Best!
At face value the HOF is a good pedal especially when you compare it to say the Strymon pedals. However you would be wrong to think that to get the sound of more expensive reverbs you have to buy more expensive pedals. The HOF has many types of reverb to choose from and with your Android or iOS phone can beam Artist created reverbs to the pedal if you choose to. Where the HOF really shines is that you can connect to a computer with tone print and edit the type of reverb and how you want it to sound and the program the parameters you want the sound to work in via computer. Like all TC Electronic Toneprint capable pedals, toneprint gives you that ability to create your own sound like Blackstar ID amps do. Meaning the HOF at face value gives you a lot of options to sculpt your sound but with the computer you can go deeper in tweeking that sound. Something I am not going to get with more expensive pedals.
prefer the holy grail
while some of the sounds achievable with this pedal are great, I personally am not a huge fan of pedals, especially when it comes to reverb. The spring sound was very touchy and sounded quite tinny to me for a rhythm sound, however the "lofi" sound was amazing for spacy leads and simply unique tone. for those wanting to explore spacy, creamy tones without spending a ton on boutique pedals, this is the pedal for you. However, those looking for a more natural sounding and simple reverb, I would recommend the EHX Holy Grail.
