A great delay and a superb pre-amp in one pedal
Twistedlittlepinetree, 21.04.2019
I use this pedal at the end of my pedalboard with the pre-amp set to "always on". Thanks to that, all my single coil equipped guitars sound so much fatter and with a little bit of crunch even at lower volume levels. Now, the pre-amp has become a part of my sound - can't live without it anymore! :)
As for delay, at first I found it hard to dial it to my liking. The repeats were too loud and too wobbly. But I found the key is to set the knobs lower than one would think. Now I have the MIX and MOD knobs around 9 o'clock and the other knobs quite low for nice slapback or the opposite way for really nice and unique soundscapes and magical ambient stuff. The repeats are rather bright and pristine, but they blend with the guitar really nicely and do not get in the way. Sometimes I stack it with another delay pedal to create some pseudo Binson Echorec multi-head sounds and it is so perfect! :)
To conclude, my first impression of the pedal as a delay was kind of "meh", but as I spent some time with it I've grown to love it. As for the pre-amp, I can't imagine not having it.

A very beautiful tape echo
SergioAureo, 02.08.2018
It's a very musical pedal and blends well with the amp. Shines equally in front of an overdriven amp.
