Pedalboard-ready Analog Tape Delay

When it comes to real-deal analog delay effects for electric guitar, it doesn't get much more authentic than the T-Rex Replicator analog delay pedal. With a real analog tape cassette and two playback heads you've got access to three delay modes. Use the two expression pedal inputs to affect delay time and feedback for trippy modulation effects. You can even use it as an effects processor for line level signals. Complete with tap tempo and a chorus mode, the T-Rex Replicator delay pedal has made real analog tape delay practical for your pedalboard.

T-Rex Replicator Analog Tape Delay Effects Pedal at a Glance:
  • Real tape and two playback heads for diverse analog delay effects
  • Delay and chorus effects with Tap Tempo control
  • T-Rex Effects: Guitarist Designed, Quality Built
Real tape and two playback heads for diverse analog delay effects

The T-Rex Replicator delay pedal delivers the vibrant sound of real analog tape delay, with more flexibility and reliability than vintage tape effect units ever offered. Two tape heads allow for three delay modes, and you can hit the chorus switch for rich chorused echo effects too. The Saturate control adds warm tape distortion. Engineers and guitarists alike at Sweetwater are pleased to hear that the Replicator combines the true vibe of vintage tape delay with the low noise and greater reliability of modern electronics.

Delay and chorus effects with Tap Tempo control

You can dial in all the standard delay effects you'd expect with the T-Rex Replicator: short slapbacks, long echoes, pseudo-reverbs, and much more. You'll find a pleasing array of chorus effects too. For even more sonic creativity, attach expression pedals (sold separately) for independent control over delay time and feedback.

T-Rex Effects: Guitarist Designed, Quality Built

Danish tone pioneers T-Rex Engineering have been making quality effects pedals and guitar gear since the 1990s. T-Rex pedals are made using some the best components in the industry, like film/foil electrolytic capacitors, lifetime-use pots, and rugged foot switches, toggles, and connectors. T-Rex's better-known pedals include the Replica digital delay and Mudhoney distortion, which can be found on the pedalboards of top guitarists David Gilmour, John Mayer, Mark Tremonti, and Steve Morse.

Reel, I mean real tape delay

When my unit arrived I plugged in after much anticipation only to find it didn't work. I was plugged in correctly. When I engaged the unit the motor was working as you can clearly hear it but there was no delayed signal nor was the tape moving. After researching the screw needed to be adjusted in so the heads made contact with the tape. T Rex has a video on YouTube on how to maintain the Replicator and the problem was clearly identified after watching the video. This is my first tape delay unit. I've been playing for 29 years and active in the effects realm for almost 20. This delay is so organic it is in an entirely different class than any digital unit I've used. There is a difference and non-tape units only get so close. If you're on the fence about a tape delay definitely check into the Replicator. It takes some dialing in. Really have to use your ears and not pay much attention to the settings. You'll be surprised what awaits!!

Awesome Unit

Once you tame it, this unit is awesome. I already own two vintage (real) tape delays but this thing blows 'em away! No comparison. So glad I bought it!


I love the Replicator... I was only planning to use it on a couple of tunes but it's so much fun I have now added to the pedal board full time.

Like it. Sweet tone. Crazy tone.

Got it last night and used it with fuzz, modfactor, and hog in chain. Have never played a tape echo, but now i see what the emulators are trying to do. The sound of the tape is way more richer than any emulator pedal i have ever played. The Good All features are solid. On switch works well and effect starts immediately. The sound and introduction of all the never been done b4 features make this the coolest delay I have ever played. The expression inputs allow you to go nuts and make a bunch of crazy noise. The saturation is also sweet. The case is also sweet and smelled of leather. The Bad None. The Ugly Most of the ugly is related to how awesome this pedal is. This delay is not like a crazy eventide super tweaker pedal yet has alot of tones available. I do wish it had presets to store awesome settings, allowed for setting min and max position on expression as having full range on expression makes it real sensitive and hard to master, had a tap tempo input for external tap unit, and was midi...Haha. The pedal is so good, I have all the ideas for version 2. The midi comment was a bit much. Keep your digital unit. Add this next to it!

Sweetwater Advice

T-Rex Replicator Analog Tape Delay

The most important thing to know about the Replicator - especially if you've never used a tape delay - is that there is an ever-present element of chaos and unpredictability. To my ears, it's a thing of absolute beauty. It rarely, if ever, fails to be musical, and it's a delightful contrast to digital's more black-and-white linearity. The chaos doesn't just manifest itself sonically, however. The interactive nature of the controls also means Replicator functions like a living, breathing thing....
