Versatile stereo reverb with TonePrint technology

The Hall of Fame 2 is a compact pedal that delivers a broad range of reverb effects, which can be quickly and easily selected and adjusted using the four control knobs and mini switch. TC Electronic’s proprietary TonePrint technology allows a significantly broader range of parameters to be fine-tuned and new presets created via smartphone using the free TonePrint app, and these can be wirelessly transferred to the pedal’s three memory slots. TC Electronic has many years of experience in the field of studio equipment, and the comprehensive wealth of algorithms that the company thus has at its disposal ensure that this affordable pedal delivers a wide variety of appealing sounds. Its fully stereophonic design makes it suitable not only for electric guitars but also for keyboards and other electric instruments, while its true bypass function and analogue dry signal path ensure a clean signal chain.

All the “space” you need

With its compact pedals, TC Electronic bridges the gap between conventional, straightforward operation and tonal versatility, with adjustment options available directly on the pedal and particularly via the TonePrint function. Accordingly, this pedal offers eight reverb settings that include not only staples like spring and plate reverb but also rooms of different sizes and special effects like Shimmer and LoFi, with controls for effect level, decay, and reverb tail filter as well as a mini-switch for pre-delay. Three memory slots are reserved for TonePrints, which can be configured with highly advanced parameters using the app. An important update that has been integrated into the pedal is the MASH function, which allows the footswitch to be optionally used as a simple expression pedal, most commonly for adjusting the intensity of the reverb effect.

Not only for beginners

The Hall of Fame 2 is aimed at musicians looking for the tonal versatility of a range of different reverb effects without sacrificing the compact format of a pedal. Players can use the three TonePrint slots to select and then further personalise the reverb texture they are looking for from the eight algorithms available or to store unusual sounds. As a highly functional and affordably priced pedal, the Hall of Fame 2 is ideal both for beginners and for musicians who know exactly what sound they are looking for – and its stereo inputs and outputs also mean that guitarists are by no means the only ones who should take a closer look.

About TC Electronic

The Danish company TC Electronic has been known for its innovative products for many years. It was founded in 1976 by brothers Kim and John Rishøj in Aarhus. The company first made a name for itself with the SCF, a stereo chorus/flanger pedal for guitar. Studio equipment followed during the 80s and 90s, notably the legendary TC2290 digital delay in 19-inch rack format. Since the 2000s, TC Electronic has greatly enriched the guitar and bass scene with amplifiers, cabinets, combos, and effects pedals. Here too, TC's innovative spirit is in evidence, for example with its TonePrint technology and the first polyphonic guitar tuner. TC Electronic has been part of Music Tribe since 2015.

Precise adjustability and artist presets

The Hall of Fame 2 serves up a practical selection of typical reverb effects for instrumentalists. The additional settings combine reverb with pitch-shifting (Shimmer), with a chorus effect (Mod), and with deliberate sound degeneration (LoFi). The TonePrint function in turn allows players to extensively customise their settings by giving them access to numerous further parameters that are otherwise only found in significantly more expensive products, while the app also provides presets from a range of renowned artists, allowing their signature sounds to be adapted in no time at all. And last but by no means least, the MASH switch makes dynamic effect control possible, a feature that is simply not available with conventional pedals.

In the spotlight: TonePrint

TonePrint is a technology that allows presets to be uploaded to the pedal from the dedicated app via Bluetooth – without the need for a single cable. TC Electronic provides downloadable TonePrints created by a diverse range of artists, and the app also gives the user access to advanced parameters, which they can then easily adjust. An exciting feature is that the hardware elements are capable of controlling not just one but several parameters, each with an individual adjustment range. Since multiple TonePrints can be managed using the app, the compatible pedals can be treated as overwritable storage devices.

Sounds Amazing, Easy to use (read for extra info)
QrystalWave 16.04.2019
It works perfectly and the build quality is very good.
It leaves the signal untouched and just adds the reverb (nice!)

Usage
Pros
- Easy to use (basically 4 knobs)
- You can get a great sound easy and fast
- It's hard to make the reverb sound bad (very positive)
Cons
- Non

Sound
Pros
- The algorithms of the reverbs sound very good! (It sounds good)
Cons
- The spring doesn't do the drippy sound, but I don't miss it that much

Features
- Decay switch: short or long (use long to hear the reverb more clearly)
- Tone Print is easy to use on your phone (needs cable for pc)
- Can be used for Mono, Mono to Stereo and Stereo

Conclusion
If you need a reverb pedal, this one just sounds good and is easy to use
Hard to go wrong with this one except if you want a drippy spring sound

Excelent option for price point
aokicassio 14.08.2020
What makes you buy a product?
Tc Electronic seems to undestand exactly what I would expect from a reverb pedal in almost every single way. Check it out below:

Pros:
- Easy to tweak. Life could be much more difficult if there was no mode knobs like for most of reverb pedals. Switching between a range of modes makes everything easy.
- Size. It is quite smaller and lighter than other similar products.
- Sounds fantastic, specially for the shimmer mode
- Stereo
- Footprint profiling. I honetly haven't explored yet but that's something that Tc Electronic offers.
- Expression switch which is also very quiet to kick.
- True bypass
- Price point. It's quite cheap for the number of features it offers

Cons:
- Maybe the jacks could be in the upper part rather than on the sides.

Reverb 101
JCS84 25.03.2021
I'm not one of those pedal collectors nor do I rely on reverb. I play mostly heavy genres so most of the time reverb is out of the question, but recently wanted to expand my interests beyond whatever reverb happens to come with the amp.
This pedal is an excellent choice for those that want to use reverb subtly and sparingly, while maintaining some variety. Unlike other, highly regarded reverb pedals, the wet mix comes off as very natural sounding and not extremely modulated or the original tone drastically altered (eg. not much brighter or darker, etc.). The amount of level/effect/etc from the knobs is very usable which allows for subtle increments, but it can get very intense particularly with the Mash function.
A little reverb can sound great in some leads as well as the occasional cleans, but can also work surprisingly well for slower paced heavy stuff if used in moderation. I particularly like the Plate and Hall effects, and find them the most useful with distortion, but the others might also work for a variety of applications. Purists say the Spring emulation on the HoF 2 is subpar, and it might be the case but that's the least of my concerns.
Like other TC Electronic pedals this one has the ability to load Toneprints so the number of reverb types is huge. And just like the rest of TC pedals, this is more of a workhorse and not a highly polished boutique version of one specific effect type. With this in mind, I think this is a fine choice for anyone who wants some basic reverb and doesn't want/need hyper realistic emulation of vintage effects.

Natural Sound & Versatile
Buket 11.03.2021
Pros:
First of all the sound is very natural since it has The Analogue Dry Through feature. The dry signal is sent straight through to the output, without being processed which brings the purity of the natural dry signal.

Secondly, this pedal is capable to have new reverb effects via TonePrint. It has the most popular reverb types like spring, hall, plate, shimmer, church... Additionally there are 3 slots which you can install different reverb effects by using the TonePrint mobile app(no cable is required, just follow the steps appearing on the app).

Thirdly and the most amazing feature is the MASH button. This switch introduces an expression pedal feature as well. To illustrate, in Church reverb, if you press and hold MASH switch, the reverb gets huge as if you are in big cathedral, perfect!

Cons:
none

To sum up, this pedal is a natural sounding one and very versatile. At this price and quality, there is no another option in my humble opinion.
