Digital Delay with an Analog Sound

NOTE: This pedal requires an external power supply (not included) to operate. Please call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer for more information.

In order to achieve its unique sound, the Hotone Eko digital/analog delay pedal utilizes both a digital delay line and an elaborate analog circuit. This unique processing will treat you to a warm-sounding, vintage-vibed effect that is reminiscent of the echo sound of yesteryear, but with more delay time and a pure signal path. Want to go deeper? Press the MOD button and be prepared for a spacious trip to echo-land. The Skyline Eko's appearance is very unique, thanks to its tiny metal casing, glow-in-the-dark knobs, and LED-illuminated time control. Make no mistake, the Skyline Eko can be addictive - the guitarists here at Sweetwater can't stop playing with it! Complete your pedalboard with the Hotone Skyline Eko digital/analog delay pedal!

The Hotone Skyline Eko Digital/Analog Delay Guitar Pedal at a Glance:
  • Is it digital or is it analog? The answer is both
  • The Hotone Skyline Series - tiny and stylish
  • Hotone - design inspiration
Is it digital or is it analog? The answer is both

Using digital technology, the Hotone Skyline Eko is able to produce delay times of up to approximately 500ms (typical analog delays max out at about 300ms), however, because the signal passes through analog circuitry, it still has the purity, richness, and warmth that you've come to expect from an analog delay. You can also use the Skyline Eko to create those funky slapback echo sounds from the '50s.

The Hotone Skyline Series - tiny and stylish

Less than two inches high, less than three inches long, and weighing in at less than 7 ounces, the Hotone Skyline Series of stompboxes offers a compact design, rugged build, and flexible tone. Encompassing a variety of effects including a looper, tuner, delay, octaver, tremolo, various overdrive and distortion effects, and more, all Skyline pedals have a durable zinc alloy outer cover, a transparent top knob that is lit up by two LED lights, and two other knobs that glow in the dark. Each pedal also has a button that gives you more tonal options. These pedals also have a metal bar to prevent you from accidentally moving the knobs with your foot when stomping on the footswitch. The Hotone Skyline Series delivers massive sound in a microscopic package!

Hotone pedals are solid!

This gives a nice slapback sound as well as those trippy spaced-out echo sounds. I bought it to replace my old Danelectro Dan-Echo. The Skyline Eko is less expensive and less than a quarter of the size, though it's every bit as sturdy. More so, in fact. Granted, the Dan could give a longer delay time, and it had a "high-cut" knob, but those aren't essential features for my needs. Also, the Dan was noisy, but the Hotone has no hissing or humming. This is great for getting all kinds of delay sounds, from Pink Floyd to U2. Well-built and easy to use!

Tiny and does the trick

Most importantly, this pedal sounds great and seems to be very solidly built. It is definitely a digital delay - the repeats are very clean, no graininess like an analog delay. That's fine with me. I have both and use both. The configuration with the Time knob at the top of the pedal is a bit odd to get used to, but in practice it works well. The only thing to consider - and the only reason I'm giving a 4.5 instead of a 5 - is that the small size may be an issue for some. I have mine sitting in an otherwise unusable "no man's land" space on my pedalboard where no other pedal could fit. That works fine for me, and I've not had any issues with the relatively small target of the switch. If you've got big feet - or maybe if you wear big boots at gigs - stepping on this may be an issue depending on where it sits on your board. For me it's fine, but it's something you might want to consider. Oh, and the Mod button is subtle but I like it and generally just leave it on. I'm a fan and I plan to get more Hotone pedals.

Great pedal for the price

To my ears this little guy sounds great. The controls are very easy to use and it sure doesn't take up much space. It has a very quiet switch and doesn't add any noise to your signal. It also looks very professionally put together. Thanks Hotone.

phase reverses/inverts when engaged

I really like the sound of this as long delay...BUT...It will flip the phase of your signal when its engaged.You will only notice this if you run 2 amps and dedicate this effect to only one guitar amp or the other.Not a big deal if you are the only guitarist and run 1 amp.
