It's a beautiful thing... o look at, and to listen to.

The first thing you notice is that it looks extremely classy. Like, it is tremendously pleasing in a visual sense, before you even plug it in. The layout, colour scheme and finish are all top notch. Does that affect the sound? Of course, no...but it is very inspiring to work with something that is so aesthetically pleasing.

Moving on to the actual sound and functionality of the thing: It sounds great. There are 3-4 pedal's worth of boutique effects in here, all packed together in a single, tidy package. More on that later.

The effects boil down to this:

1) A very natural-sounding reverb that can be set to an extremely long decay time. It sounds good as a subtle bit of atmosphere, but the real strength comes from setting it looong and watching your signal head off into the ether. It's perfect for ambient sounds or just adding some extra atmosphere to your sound.

2) An analogue delay, somewhat reminiscent of the MXR Carbon Copy, but less dark. It's a very clear sounding delay, which I like - I can hear individual repeats, but they have a soft edge to them. It just...works. No tap tempo, which some people may miss - but I'm okay with it. I have an HX effects, and if I need that kind of practicality I use that. One of the things I like about this pedal is that the number of parameters I can tweak is limited to just the most important ones (IMO).

There is also a pitch-shifting effect of sorts, where a second tone can be applied to your signal - this can take the form of a subtle detune effect (which works great on synths, in particular) or a 5th harmony over what you're playing. You can hit all points in between those extremes, but I haven't quite figured out how to use that yet!

3) Fuzz. It's a one-know fuzz, and it sounds amazing. Reminiscent of 90s classic fuzz sounds - it has the kind of natural but harmonically rich sound that I associate with bands like My Bloody Valentine and other shoegaze bands, but it could hav a wide range of applications. Note: It can get very loud. If you like tweaking it, you may need to adjust your amp volume or other pedals in your chain.

Honestly, the fuzz is my favourite part. And please bear in mind that I am very, very, very (very) impressed with reverb and delay aspects.

Finally: The most unique thing about this pedal, and the tihng that sold it to me...this is very much a 'workbench' style of effects unit. One could just use this on it's own, for certain types of music. It is also very natural to tweak the parameters on the fly and experiment! It is very much a fun experience and it encourages creativity and trying new things, in a way that a lot of modern effects don't (due to a preference for lots of tweakability and features). This unit has a realtively small number of options per effect, but they are the most powerful and important parameters. And the range of the parameters is extremely well calibrated, in that I cannot get a 'bad' sound out of it. Once again, this is a great aid to creativity and exploration!

I love my Line 6 'HX Effects', but I find adjusting it to be an involved process (worth it, given the amount of control one has over it), whereas this is very natural, spontaneous and forgiving on the user.

Probably not an ideal purchase for someone playing in a function band or conventional rock band...but for anyone looking to do even slightly experimental, atmospheric music, this is an absolute treasure. Each aprt works well in isolation, and swtiching everything on at once sounds immense.

Heartily recommended.

Polyvalent et gros caractère
DDA33 20.01.2022
Produit français, ce qui est plutôt rare.
J’évalue le produit après avoir passé plus d’un mois et demi avec.
La dédale suit tout un concept sur la distorsion du temps plus on se rapproche d’un trou noir. Visuellement c’est soigné et les boutons sont repartis de l’extérieur vers le centre : les commandes du délai puis de la reverb puis au centre le seul gros potard pour la fuzz, ce qui suit le trajet du son.
Cette pedale trois-en-un offre beaucoup de possibilités, c’est orienté noise et ambiant à mon sens. Le délai à beaucoup de caractère avec un peu de souffle et des aigus un peu éteints. C’est un délai très modulé et vivant. L’auto oscillation est possible, le délai mérite qu’on change les paramètres en cours de jeu pour faire vivre l’effet, en mode shoegaze.
La reverb est très classe, large et profonde même en mono. Elle est plus hi-fi que le délai. Elle offre du pitch shifting pour une sorte de shimmer à la quinte, ce qui change du shimmer « habituel », c’est magique avec la guitare et avec des synthés c’est la fête aussi.
Enfin, une fuzz qui sonne plutôt vintage et lourde. Comme le délai et la reverb finissent dedans, c’est possible d’arriver à des résultats très bruitistes qui fonctionnent à merveille. L’achat de la pedale se justifie rien que pour la fuzz, qui sonne mieux que des unités dédiés à mes oreilles.
Au total c’est du shoegaze accessible en seule pedale, je m’en sers plus pour des passages ambiant dans un contexte de métal progressif. Elle se révèle quand on joue et qu’on change les paramètres en même temps. Ça rends le tout très vivant. Elle réponds à mes besoins et je la conseille fortement aux aventuriers du son qui veulent passer du temps à jouer de la guitare ET de la pedale en même temps.

TREMENDO CACHARRO!!!!
PJ Ruiz 13.11.2021
He estado por muchos años inmerso en el mundo sonoro. Mi estudio está pertrechado con lo mejor, y, por supuesto, en ese apartado no faltan las unidades de efectos de élite. Pero este pedalito es sorprendente... Primero, su acabado: se nota minucioso, diseño y concepto inclusive. El DLY pasa a la RV y de ahí al fuzz, lo cual arroja un nivel de capas y de destrucciones sonoras sencillamente brillantes en una unidad tan compacta. Posibilidades infinitas. Individualmente, tanto DLY como Rv son de lo más profesional, con texturas ricas y modulaciones extremas. El fuzz es grueso, muy potente. La verdad es que he de recomendar la unidad porque es de lo mejor que he escuchado jamás. Felicidades al diseñador.
