Best delay on the marketI am old enough to have had the pleasure of using tape delays before the digital revolution so I know what tape delay should act like. I have also had the fortune of owning many of the worthwhile delays and processors over the years. I currently play through a Mesa Mark V with a collection of Gibson, Fender, and other guitars. I was looking for a delay that would do looping and legit tape echo. Since my tone is dialed in, I didn't want something that would change my tone or that would be hard to change on the fly. The Vox Delay Lab is the first pedal I have used that truly emulates tape echo...and presents a killer digital delay... and does great loops. I was using a Line 6 DL4 but this thing kills it- hands down. One of the things I love is the fact that it works like a processor in that it allows for a ton of presets. I don't like processors for the most part because of the lack of on the fly flexibility. I use a pretty big pile of pedals out front so I can dial as needed on stage. I love having access to all the delays since this is one of the effects I change the most during a performance. I run this one through the fx loop of my amp and the delays are crystal clear. Stellar sounds and ultimate flexibility. I didn't think I would use an expression pedal with it but once I tried it I was hooked. This is BY FAR the best delay unit I have used yet. If something happened to it I would order another one right away. Try this pedal. There is no risk because everything you ever wanted in a delay and more is in this box.

Amazing but Overwhelming at TimesI like this delay alot. I have only had this for 2 days, but I have already figured most of the pedal out. It can be difficult, in my opinion, to work sometimes. I had some trouble at first, making 1/8 note delays, but once you experiment a lil bit, you under stand it better. Its packed full of features, most of which I will never think about using, and theyre all great delays. The ambient settings are great for swells, if thats your kinda thing.
It just takes a lil bit of sitting down with it to make it sound great. Very pleased.
