I'm going to pick up a reverb pedal soon and have it narrowed down to two that I particularly like. They are the Electro Harmonix Cathedral Reverb and the TC Electronic Hall of Fame. They've both got their strong suits and the things that are unique to either pedal are things I think I might really want but can't have in one single unit.
The Cathedral is has the biggest selling point: the ability to store a preset. But I would only really tweak a reverb pedal but so much. I mostly want it to even out the sound between two amps in my stereo rig that have very different reverb sounds. Still, not having to fuss with knobs is always a plus, especially on a pedal with as many knobs and settings as the Cathedral. It also has that cool infinite/tap tempo button that I probably wouldn't use much certainly wouldn't mind having. I also like the insanely creepy sound of the reverse reverb and could see myself getting some use out of it.
However, I generally like the tone of the Hall of Fame a little bit more. Plus the Tone Print feature keeps things fresh. I have the Corona Chorus and like it quite a bit. Plus it costs less and takes up less room on the floor. Over all, it does have more reverb styles than the Cathedral (11 including the Tone Print) and fewer controls to get lost in, making it easier to use and more versatile, too. I think that on the whole this is the more practical choice for sure. But something keeps pulling me back to that Cathedral...
Do any of you have experience with both of these pedals? What do you think?
