Lost in the Tone TonePrint by Guitar Center
This reverb is based on the church reverb, but with the parameters backed down, so the effect is only subtle but in a very noticeable way. It adds a flavor of fullness and warmth to the guitar sound without sacrificing clarity of tone. A must have for any guitarist.

Other TonePrints by Guitar Center
Doing TonePrints for Guitar Center together has been something Tore and Barry have been talking about doing since winter Namm 2011. Tore from TC heard Barry play at NAMM and thought: Wow, this guy can really play! So that’s how the whole idea about Barry coming over to TC’s headquarters in Denmark and make TonePrints came about.
Tore: So what’s your background with the guitar?
Barry: I’ve been playing guitar since I was a kid and I worked for line6 for 10 years. So I have sort of an extended background with products and playing, and you know, I just love pedals.
Tore: I think we’re going to have a lot of fun making toneprints. Do you have any idea what you want to do?
Barry: I think we should work on the Flashback Delay, Corona Chorus, Hall of Fame Reverb and the Shaker Vibrato.
Tore: Now we’ve got the Hall of Fame Reverb hooked up. I don’t know about you, but I find that a lot of guitarists actually sometimes have trouble dialing in a nice reverb.
Barry: Yeah it’s true. I think there is a tendency, you know, speaking for myself, as a guitar player I always want more of an effect, I want more reverb, more delay, more distortion. But what I wanted to go for was a reverb that sorts of supports the music and didn’t swallow it, so to speak. And I think we nailed it.
Tore: I think it sounds absolutely brilliant. What we’ve done is, we’ve taken the church reverb which is a big really natural sounding reverb and just backed it way down, so that it’s really easy to get a nice sound that supports the guitar tone without totally overtaking it.
The regular church sound with everything at 12’o clock is a nice sound, but it’s too much for most stuff. So continue playing, and I’ll load in your TonePrint. (Barry Plays) It’s beautiful.
Another good example to explain how this works is to turn the reverb off to notice how big a difference it makes. You don’t really notice that reverb is on when you’re playing, but it just adds this flavour to the sound.
Tore: So this wraps up our TonePrint session. It’s been a pleasure having you over here doing this.
Barry: It’s been great, I’ve had a lot of fun doing these TonePrints. It really shows you how flexible these pedals are. You can really get any tone that you can hear in your head out. And it was great working on this project with you.続きを読む Guitar Center
