SUPER pedal

I've never written one of these in my life, even after a few decades of purchasing gear. But this pedal is worth writing about. First off, the concept alone is perfect. I am not sure why more manufacturers don't make boost/delay pedals. There are only a handful I could find online, in fact. What does a lead player want to be able to do without tap dancing on stage?? Hit a lead "patch" with ONE BUTTON. Of course this is simple in the world of processors or midi controllers, but for pedal users - unless you just grab a 40 dollar bypass loop switcher (single button style) and hook a boost and delay together and put them on the loop (which now that I'm saying it THAT is a brilliant idea, I'm a genius!) point is that with one button I can go from my rhythm sound to a boosted lead. Which brings me to the SOUND. This delay is rad. By adjusting 'fidelity ' you can make it sound like a warm, dark analog delay or a crystal clear replicated digital delay. And everything in between...literally. You have the "tails" option (or is it TRAILS...hmmm..well I don't wanna have to double check but you know what I'm talking about ) do that once you click effect off the delay feedback plays out. The boost is fully adjustable from either no effect all the way to TOO LOUD. I got this pedal two days ago and used it at band practice an hour later. My solos sounded better than ever and I am not exaggerating. I'm not quite sure how a delay pedal could make THAT much difference but it certainly did. I got this figuring I could return it if need be but there's no way I'm taking this pedal off my board now :)

Maybe the most underrated dalay pedal ever

Not worse the delays which cost about 400$


Definitely a great sounding delay . You can get it to sound analog or much brighter . Great concept with the boost feature for solos . I only wish the boost had its own footswitch; sometimes you want some delay without boosting it . So it can't really be a set it and forget it delay. You'll have to make adjustments during your set for different songs.

Great delay - Easy to use

Just a rock solid delay that is easy to use without a lot of fuss. Very straightforward and intuitive controls make it easy to dial in all the delay sounds I need. I'm not really big on the boost function, but I guess it has its uses for some players. Sounds very natural and the tap tempo works great. I play in a cover funk disco band, classic rock band and P&W.
