I bought this pedal to use in my acoustic pedalboard – I have a tube pre/compressor and a tone-shaping DI that shipped with a built-in reverb knob, but that verb always sounded a little tinny, sparkly, and fake, and I had no way to adjust the decay, which was set to be fairly long. I did a lot of reading and decided to try out the HOF 2...and dang, is it worth every penny. Not only is this unit built like a tank and finished really attractively in hot-rod red, but the verb presets sound amazingly realistic and the additional ability to fine-tune your parameters using TC's TonePrint software gives you an insane degree of control over your sound. The MASH function is an added bonus, allowing you to temporarily increase one of the parameters of your verb based on how hard you press the bypass switch. Top-notch.
