Which would it be?
TC Electronic Hall of Fame
RV-7 is what I use.
Either the Boss or the Hardwire. The HoF is a bit bland imho and doesn't cut through well.
i would use a RV-5
What are you trying to accomplish?
none of the above, Nuenaber WET, however, since your looking for a multi verb unit, this might not be your cup of tea, but the stereo WET maybe, if you get into the pedal programmer side of the pedal (plus an ExP controller, whether you buy theres or build your own).
But if I have to choose, probably the RV5 for having one of the best modulated reverbs out there.
What about the Wet or the Eventide Space?
They're all really common pedals, go to a music store and try them, that would be my option.
I had the HoF for a while. I liked it, but not enough to keep. I sold it and got an EHX Holy Grail. That sounded really good, but was a little noisy and I missed some of the options from the HoF. I sold the EHX after finding a good deal on a used RV-7 and haven't looked back. It's phenomenal. The Supernatural version is supposed to be great if you want more spacy/ambient reverbs, but the RV-7 covers everything I'd ever want and every setting is usable and sounds good, IMO.
Of just those three, the Digitech RV-7 unless you really love the modulation on the RV-5 which people mess their pants over. HoF is really boring, but I never tried the toneprints.
Given only those 3 options, I'd go back to the Boss RV-5. It's modulated reverb is second to none IMO. I've owned the HoF, and found all the presets sound basically the same (and really digital), and I've owned the Supernatural which is a modified RV-7; I found the shimmer was more detuned than necessary, and the rest of the settings were either unconvincing, or one-trick-ponies.
i need help with a reverb pedal as well. i am looking at the wet but wanted to know more options that are available within a reasonable price. say $250? i dont know. my marshall has no reverb as it is very old. the bogner has a sweet reverb tank but i need something for my marshall. right now i have wah, fuzz, and overdrive.
Another vote for the RV7. Had the HOF and while it was ok (beware the possible footswitch issues), the RV7 is much clearer sounding and more appealing to my ear anyway, especially the 'plate' setting.
rv7 unless you want to play really ambient music, in which case hall of fame.
Out of those the RV-5! Really like the RV-3 though.
I have an RV-7. I can't compare though.
I will say this. The RV-7 sounds a more 'sophisticated' than my TC Alter Ego 4x delay. I know that's a real stretch of a comparison, but owning both of those does not make me want to try a Hall Of Fame.
RV-5. I'm on my second one and I love it. Modulation ftw.
I recently picked up the Hall of Fame. I'm loving it, the sounds, the flexibility, everything. Can't go wrong with it.
