It's really a must have pedal. Since the Beatles were recording, doublers have been making their way into our music. Almost all our favorite classic rock and pop tunes use some kind of doubling effect on the vocals.
This pedal nails the last 50 years of vocal doubling we've been enjoying. The trick is to use it correctly, and it is a trick, because it's real real easy to go overboard with the effect. The Wet/Dry knob has a notch at 12 o'clock that makes most people think that this must be the normal spot to place the knob. Well, it isn't. That's WAY too wet, unless you are trying to sound weird. The idea is to use just a tiny bit. And it's amazing what a tiny bit of doubling will do to improve your vocals. It's why we bought five of these things. The trick is to not use too much effect.
Seriously, keep the knob well under the nine o'clock position. You won't even notice you have the thing on, but your audience will be super impressed with your vocals, and they won't know why.
Doubling is truly the secret to great vocals. And that includes using the doubling effect correctly. Like salt on your French Fries, you have to use just the right amount, but boy what a difference it makes if you get it right!
I can't give this 5 stars because it is tricky to use properly and it's actually pretty fragile. We've had two break already.
The octave settings are useless unless you want to sound weird, and I', sure some people do.
We leave this pedal on all night and keep it by the mixing board, but you could also use it as a harmonizer for your choruses. It could be very handy in that regard if you lack backup singers.
