The overall sentiment of most reviewers about the TC Electronic Hall of Fame Reverb pedal is that it gives you more than what you'd expect from the money, it simply does more than what other pedals in its price range offer. Reviews are full of positive remarks about the quality of its many reverb algorithms, from subtle room reverb to classic spring reverb emulations to modern chorused echoes that the Tone Print editor allows for. Interestingly, a lot of users also found the pedal easy to use, while more experienced users were very happy with the deep editing functionality of the Tone Print editor.
There were a few who found some of the reverb algorithms to be uninspiring, while others wanted a few more knobs for old school tweaking, instead of having to use the Tone Print feature. While not often reported, there was one who found the battery to drain faster than he expected.
