Hall's Echo patches have been specifically designed to emulate, as closely as possible, some of the original echo units or effects that have been made famous by Hank Marvin and others of that early era.

The Hall's Echo patches for the ZOOM G5 are only available by email. These patches are designed for you to install them yourself and come complete with an instruction document that includes images and a systematic approach. The Hall's Echo patches should be used with a G5 that has Version 1.10 Firmware installed or later and will overwrite the ZOOM Factory patches. If you use a PC with Windows 8 Operating system or you have USB 3 you will require the latest (V1.20) Firmware update for the G5 (there are links to required resources at the foot of this page).

The ZOOM G5 unit has built in amp modelling simulations and the Hall's Echo programmes make use of this as well as providing the suitable echo sounds. These Hall's Echo patches were written with the 'Connected Equipment' setting set to 'Direct' and this setting should be used to optimise the Hall's Echo product.

The Hall's Echo patches for the ZOOM G5 contain 39 effects and echo patches that use the excellent ZOOM amp model simulations; a further 39 patches follow these but with the ZOOM amp model simulations removed leaving you with a differently equalised echo only patch that enables you to generate your own tone from your own equipment (amp, etc.) but still enjoying the benefits of the echo, reverb or effect of the patch. This gives you 78 patches in total (two more, with and without amp simulations, compared to the Hall's Echo patches for the ZOOM G3 or G3X; the extra patches are Binson Echorec patches).

The 39 Hall's Echo patches, either with or without the ZOOM amp simulations, should cover almost any Hank and the Shadows tune. A list of 222 tunes/programmes is supplied. Other tunes not on the list will also, usually, have a suitable setting because the most important echo unit sounds are included in the programmes. Further, the Binson Echorec 6 and 7 echoes were used for most Spotnicks tunes and the VOX Long Tom 1 and 2 patches were used for other European acts who've favoured this unit.

The price for this Hall's Echo Product for the ZOOM G5 is: GBP £80.00 and this is for one non-exclusive and non-transferable licence (subject to formal licence agreement).
