This is a comparison of two absolutely amazing pedals: The space head algorithm of the Eventide H90 Harmonizer compared to the Strymon Volante.
Both pedals can create multihead delays, have modulation and are perfect for gritty tape sounds.
0:37 darker delay with modulation
1:22 more gain, low cut
2:04 really dark delay
2:57 two tape heads activated
3:56 gritty delay
