Visual Sound Dual Tap Delay with Acoustic GuitarMy tips have doubled playing solo since using the Delay in the Effect Loop of my Radial PZ Acoustic Pre-Amp,then into my Powered Mackie PA, one delay is set to thicken up my chords for rhythm and the other for finger picking, and using both together gives another nice variation.It is by far the best Delay Pedal I have ever used,I can't picture not having one on stage again.its built like a tank and should give me many many years of service.

ABSOLUTE CRAZYThis is one of the best. Simple easy to use. Works on amy amp. I tried it on Marshall and Laney and Fender all vintage amps. Then tried it our on modern amps of the same. It works well on both high gain and crystal clean sounds. Only drawback IT DOES NOT COME WITH A POWER SUPPLY. You would think at $250.00 they could throw in the power supply. Its well worth the money

Wonderful delay!I purchase another brand of delay pedal before purchasing this one from Sweetwater. I won't mention the name but it seemed lacking. I returned it and ordered this one. I am very pleased with the sound and the vast array of delay settings that this pedal is capable of. As usual Sweetwater got it to me within days. Give it a try, if you haven't. You will be surprised at the tone available from it.

The Gold Standard of DelaysYou want delay? Then don't delay and get this on your pedalboard and make some music. Very easy to use (the owners' manual is one page) and set up to your liking. First quality construction and industrial strength footswitches ensure long term durability and reliability. Epic tone quality and sound is all right there. Be sure to use a good power supply (the Visual Sound One Spot will work if you don't yet have a pedalboard power supply) as the unit does NOT run on a battery.

A MUST BUY!Analog sound with a tap delay. Best delay pedal on the market. I use the first delay as a chorus effect and the second as a delay. This delay replaces the line 6 dl4 as the standard and I highly recommend It to anyone who wants a serious delay pedal.

Incredible DelayNo 20 page manual, NO WORRIES! Just plug in and play! It really is that simple. I have been using this on my FX board for 4 months now, and it is extremely versatile. I have absolutely NO complaints at all. The sound is nice and warm adding no noise. It has a great buffer, and works great with other pedals: chorus, tube screamer, fuzz, muff, overdrive, compression, they all sound incredible. Love to stack the delays, single tap tempo setting is a big plus. Modulation adds fantastic shimmering sparkle to my sound!! Buy it and put a smile on your face!!!

Plug and Play!I got this pedal 10 minutes before rehearsal on a Sunday morning and it was set-up and dialed-in in no time! Awesome sound and awesome capabilities! I love Visual Sound's noise reduction circuitry in all of their pedals. Don't hesitate, just buy it! Honestly, the ONLY other delay pedal I would get is one with memory, however, this is so easy to set-up that there's really no need for memory. Use one, the other, or BOTH delays at one time. Couldn't be happier with my investment.

It Makes My Amps Sound BetterThis seems to clean up my signal to my amps. Both amplifiers sound better (purer) when the Dual Tap Delay is on, even with very little effect dialed in. It is easy to use and the delay effects are outstanding.

Worth Every Penny!The guys at Visual Sound set out to make a pedal that requires no manual. Well with this pedal they nailed it! I mean literally I got the pedal took it out of the box and started playing! I have never even touched the instruction sheet even once. I have set channel 1 with the repeats nob all the way down for rythm. I set channel 2 with the repeats nob around 12 o' clock. This pedal is perfect considering I am both a lead and rythm player. I also love the tone nobs on both sides.

Fantastic Sound-Easy to UseVisual Sound typically builds very nice pedals, but this one is extraordinary. I own several other delay pedal (digitech, mxr, H20) and had the new T.C. Electronics pedal which was returned due to a problem/glitch. The Dual Tap beat them all in tone and feel which seems more "natural", if that makes sense. The small tone knob for each side is a nice touch to find the balance between sparkle and grain with various guitar and amp combinations. This pedal is user-friendly and easy to use in live-gig situations. As Visual Sounds says,no manual is needed. I am using more subtle delay now because it is so easy to change on the fly with the tap feature to set either side. Both delays can be used together. Try this pedal out and listen to something special.

amazing 2 in 1 delay pedal!!!the guys at Visual Sound set out to make a new delay that didn't need a manual to be operated, and the new Dual Tap Delay really knocks that goal out of the park! I'd been excited about this delay since the first pictures hit the internet and it does not disappoint.
I run delay 2 as a reverb-type of sound (similar to their sample setting) to fill in the space abit, and delay 1 as a .8th rhythmic delay, but using both together is probably my favorite... Edge-like atmospheric sounds, or 80's era HUGE sounding solo's (with the drive coming courtesy of my VS Open Road, Jekyll & Hyde, or Route 66)... this pedal covers ALOT of ground for being so simple to operate. Some guys prefer midi, etc, but if you want a bone-head simple layout, that can cover delay tones from vintage echo to modern rhythm, the Dual Tap Delay is a great option to check out! I'm certainly glad i did!

Best straight up tap delay everThis easily the most fun and intuitive tap delay I've ever worked with. The sound is amazing, it's built like a tank and it conjures up some great reverbish plus delay sounds or syncopated delays. The manual mode give you an analog style effect that is also really cool. It really has its own voice that is clear and beautiful compared to other delays that model several different sounds. If the modulation knob added reverb this would be perfect for me, but I usually end up using one channel with a short delay as shown in the demo and it works jus fine, has its own character. This pedal brought my old Mesa mark iib back to life. Worth the cash.

Visual Sound Dual Tap Delay ReviewI really like this new pedal. The analog sounds are really good, and the tap button is one of the easiest to set. There is little resistance when pressing it compared to the normal foot switch. Wish the very bright blue display lights blinked to show tap tempo speed like my Hardwire DL-8, and a smaller footprint. But those are small issues with 2 delays in one pedal. Love the fact that I can set dotted 8ths and 1/4 notes and mix and match. Would highly recommend getting this if you have the board space. Also, you need 120ma minimum to operate so check your power supply.

Amazing delay pedalThis pedal is way better than the boss dd's or the mxr carbon copy. I use it with vs oil can and get great sounds.

Visual Sound Dual Tap DelayI was never a big delay guy and I already had a popular delay pedal, but this one is pretty incredible. It's simple but you can get to all the sounds you want and layer them. It's just a lot more fun playing with this pedal.

Works for me!This is a great pedal. Visual Sound consistently put out great stuff, and this is no exceptions.
This pedal does exactly what it says it will do, and sounds great doing it. Don't buy it expecting it do anything else.
The delays sound beautiful. The modulation is beautiful and not overbearing, unless you want it to be. All knobs are very effective. The buffer is great. It is a heavy piece of gear, but it replaced 2 pedals on my board.
As a bonus, it has a relatively low current draw, so it should play nice with a One Spot if you've got a bunch of pedals daisy chained.
Great pedal! Works for me!
