    Which should I get first-Hall of Fame 2 or Flashback 2?

    I want to get both but right now I can only afford to get one at a time.

    Opinions needed.

    Hall of Fame is a reverb pedal the Flashback is a delay.

    Delay first IF your amp has passable reverb. If you currently have no reverb, get reverb first.

    I’m only semi familiar with that amp. I’m assuming it has a decent reverb. If that’s the case get the delay. Delay kind of takes reverb to the next level, even if you use minimal delay just to add a sense of space. Delay is less impressive (in ambient uses), imo, without any reverb. Once you get delay as a pedal and decent reverb from the amp you can always add a reverb pedal for more saturated sounds, still using the amp reverb at mild settings for all time use.

    do you need to improve your live/recorded sound ASAP or do you want to monkey around with cool options that eventually result in a better tone?

    more to play with on the delay

    more low hanging fruit for right now improvements with reverb and it will take you beyond amp reverb into all sorts of ambient territory if that's your cup o tea

    i wish i had an ehx canyons myself which would cover both bases but if you're dedicated to the tc stuff maybe the toneprints software options are what you like?

    Depends on use and style. What do you need them for?

    I don’t like Reverb when I’m Playing. Also
    That delay Is pretty awesome. I have the mini, the reg. And the x4. You can get the reg. One for $90 used if you’re patient.

    Delay can sound somewhat like reverb. But reverb cannot sounds like delay.
