Concerning the categorization of delay pedals, guitarists mostly refer to analog delays, tape delays and digital delay pedals. But one true classic is often overlooked because it is pretty rare and only available in used condition: the Binson Echorec. Continue reading “Binson Echorec”
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.
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”
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.
