A Fantastic Boost - with Delay!

When you're playing a solo, you just need a little extra panache. Tech 21's Boost D.L.A. has that little something extra — and then some! On top of giving you 9dB of boost to help drive your amp into sweet, sweet saturation, the Boost D.L.A. soaks your sound in a slick delay. Tunable to sound like anything from tape echo to bucket brigade to digital delay, the Boost D.L.A. takes the delay experience further with the addition of triplet-enhanced tap tempo and trailing repeats. That's right, the remaining regenerating delays trail off naturally rather than meet an abrupt end when the pedal is bypassed.

So, exactly how much delay time can you access with the Boost D.L.A.? How about 1,000ms? Not too shabby! Want to push your sound over the edge? Turn up the Feedback control and stand back, as the Boost D.L.A. self-oscillates into analog-style chaos. The Flutter control introduces modulation, giving your sound a touch of tape-style chorusing effect. Spice up your solos with a healthy dose of gain and a very cool delay, with Tech 21's Boost D.L.A.!

Tech 21 Boost D.L.A. Clean Boost/Delay Pedal Features at a Glance:
  • Uniquely combines delay and clean boost, up to 9dB, in one pedal
  • Custom-tailor a wide variety of delay styles, such as digital, tape, and bucket brigade
  • Highly sensitive controls provide a broader range of tweakability and maximum flexibility
  • 100%-analog Mix, Feedback, Tone, and Level controls for warm, organic sounds
  • Up to 1000 milliseconds of continuously variable delay time
  • Flutter introduces modulation, which adds the slight shimmering/chorus-like effect of a vintage tape echo
  • Mix control ranges from 100% dry to 100% wet
  • 1Mohm hi-Z 1/4" input, same as traditional tube amplifiers
  • 1Kohm lo-Z 1/4" output drives long cables, without loss of signal integrity, even in bypass
  • Custom silent-switching actuator
  • Buffered bypass eliminates the shortcomings associated with "true bypass" (pops and clicks, plus high-end loss when multiple pedals are connected together), as well as signal loss associated with other types of switching circuits
  • Heavy-duty, all-metal construction
  • Operable with 9V alkaline battery (not included) or optional DC power supply
  • Individual footswitch dedicated solely for tap tempo function
  • Triplets works in conjunction with the tap tempo, shifting the timing so that triplets play in sync with the actual tempo
  • Trails works in conjunction with bypass, allowing for the natural decay of the delay signal
  • Feedback control has greater sensitivity and can be thrown into a state of self-oscillation
Tech 21's Boost D.L.A. may just be the ultimate pedal for your guitar solos!
