Slapback Delay

A short single-repeat echo effect often heard in ’50s pop and rockabilly styles. Slapback delay is often used on electric guitar, but can also be applied to drums, vocals, and more. Delay times are usually short, in the range of 40-120 milliseconds, with the delay effect mixed up quite loud against the dry signal. See also “slap echo.”
