Every once in a while, you plug into a pedal, and,
suddenly, you’re transported to Tone Paradise. You
barely touched a knob, and yet all is wonder and
goodness and bliss. That’s the Hall of Fame Reverb
($149 street). This is one of the smoothest, most
cinematically musical reverb pedals I’ve ever heard,
and it instantly gives your guitar a Hi-Def, 3D, goosebump-
inducing shimmer—even if you’re one of those
more-is-more crazies who can’t stop themselves
from using way too much of a damn good effect.
The HOF’s ten reverbs are so luscious that I’d
have no problem dumping my fancy convolution
reverb plug-ins in the studio, and using this pedal
to process vocals, drums, percussion, strings, and
more. With just four knobs (Decay, Tone, FX Level,
program select) and a short/long pre-delay switch,
you can conjure undulating ambiences, mix the
expanse of a large environment with an extremely
short decay, cop gated ’verb skanks, subtly blend
billowing reflections under a sharp rhythmic attack,
and, using the modulated reverb setting, launch ultravibey,
Cocteau Twins-influenced jangle torrents. You
can even kill the dry signal via an internal switch to
produce ghostly note cascades. I’m so taken with
the HOF that I call it the “Motivator,” because every
time I plug into it, its sounds inspire me to create
new riffs and melodic lines.
KUDOS Stunning sonic quality. Versatile. So
smooth you can slather it on without drowning
