This is a pretty well thought out digital delay pedal. It's sort of meant to be the all-in-one delay pedal with everything included. Meaning all types of delay effects including a tap tempo as well as 4 banks that you can have your preset delays set to. It also has spillover, so when you turn it off or on you'll hear the left over echo.


Not TOO simple to use, since it's a dual pedal it's got quite a few functions so it'll take a little longer to properly figure out. But after a few twists and turns and experimenting, any guitar player should be able to figure out how to work it on a regular basis!

The manual is very necessary to understand all the little things that you might not get from just playing around with it. EG for the presets, you can change the how the lighting pattern is, things like that.

You can run the pedal as a stereo setup or mono setup, it has enough ins and outs for both depending on what kind of rig you have and whatnot.


I think it sounds great. I've heard this used live and used it live myself and haven't had many problems with it. The LED screen is big and legible, though the brightness could be brighter as I always prefer it to be brighter for live stage use.

Otherwise majority of the delay sounds are quite good. I use the regular digital, analog and tape echo quite a few times. The SOS not so much, it seemed to be more of an afterthought idea to add onto the pedal so it isn't very tweakable.

The tone is generally very crisp and clear, and thus 'digital' however there's also the tone knob available on the unit so you can actually EQ it a bit to make it sound warmer, duller or brighter and even more pristine! How cool is that?


Overall, great all-in-one delay pedal. Loads of variety, and good sounding overall delay. A lot of thought has been put into this to make this a programmable and usable live pedal as well. There are lots of functions and lots to go through, if you want to get the best out of this I'd definitely recommend skimming through the manual.
