Analog delay sound

Analog delay pedals are not all equal. By now, there are so many different pedals that you cannot speak of THE analog delay sound anymore. Continue reading “Analog delay sound”

Maxon AD-900 vs. Fulltone Tube Tape Echo – delay comparison

This is a comparison of the Maxon AD-900 with the Fulltone Tube Tape Echo.
The comparison of an analog delay with a tape echo might be a bit extraordinary – but these two classics can definitvely compete with each other.

DOD Rubberneck vs. DMB Pedals Lunar – analog delay comparison

This is a comparison of the DOD Rubberneck with the DMB Pedals Lunar.
Both delays provide modulation and oscillation.

gear: Fender Telecaster, Fender Tweed Champ, Celestion G12M, Shure SM57, Cubase.

Digital delays

In the 1980s, the first digital chips were used to produce delay pedals. The advantage was, that these racks and pedals were able to offer a longer delay time than the analog delays of those days and, at the same time, produced less hiss. Continue reading “Digital delays”

Maxon AD-900 vs. DMB Pedals Lunar Echo – Analog Delay Comparison

This is a comparison of the DMB Pedals Lunar Echo with the Maxon AD-900 Analog Delay.
The Lunar sounds warmer and percussive while the sound of the Maxon AD 900 is clearer and darker.

AnalogMan ARDX20 Dual Analog Delay

ARDX20The AnalogMan ARDX20 is a delay pedal with a completely analog circuit.
Because of its size it is rather less pedalboard-friendly, but especially accompanied by the AMAZEo it becomes an excellent delay pedal. Continue reading “AnalogMan ARDX20 Dual Analog Delay”

Maxon AD-900 vs. Retro-Sonic Analog Delay Comparison

This is a comparison of the Retro-Sonic Analog Delay with the Maxon AD-900 Analog Delay.
The Retro-Sonic Analog Delay sounds grittier while the sound of the Maxon AD 900 is clearer and darker.

DOD Rubberneck vs. Ibanez DE-7 Delay Comparison

This is a comparison of the DOD Rubberneck with the Ibanez DE-7.

The DOD Rubberneck has got much midrange and provides the rough sound of a marvelous vintage delay. By using the tone pot you can set beautiful dark delays. The Rubberneck is perfect to create ambient sound and soundscapes. The gain pot enables you to produce grittier delays.
All pots are quite interactive and offer numerous setting options.

The special thing about the echo mode of the DE-7 is, that the digital created signal must pass an analog circuit with a JRC 4580, clipping diodes and analog filters. You can easily produce beautiful rhythmical delays. A switch allows to chose between three different delay “ranges” which can be fine-tuned by the delay time pot.
Echo and delay can be selected by the mode switch.
