I use a Mr. Black Vintage Chorus Mini and it sounds superb. I just notice a little latency, which might be just in my mind. But I asked Mr. Black himself and he said it’s ‘fully 24-bit DSP’. So, it has no analog dry through. Now I wonder if for example the TC Electronic Corona Mini, which has analog dry through, would be even better. But on the other hand, the TC Electronic Corona Mini is unable to reach the sonic quality of the Vintage Chorus. I’m just curious about what you think about this issue.Continue reading “Mr. Black Vintage Chorus or TC Electronic Corona Mini?”
This is a comparison of the Boss DD-200 with the Source Audio Nemesis. Both digital delays provide likewise functions and have the same form factor. Check out their sonic differences and similarities in varying settings.
This is a comparison of the Catalinbread Belle Epoch with the Empress Echosystem. The Belle Epoch emulates the legendary Echoplex EP-3 as well as the respective algorithm of the Echosystem. Both delays provide modulation, a tone control and for those, who like grittier sounds, they also add some dirt to the signal.
You can find it on the bottom of numerous effect pedals, supposed to keep them on the pedalboard: Velcro. But at the latest, when you want to sell your pedal, it makes sense to get rid of the adhesive straps. Continue reading “How to remove Velcro”
Strymon calls the NightSky a time-warped reverberator which includes more functions than a usual reberb pedal. The new type of setting options is also innovative and is an invitation for experimentation.
This is the first part of a two-part review of the Strymon NightSky. In the first part you will learn all about the construction and the extensive functions of the NightSky, while the second part will be dedicated to the sound of this extraordinary pedal. Continue reading “Review: Strymon NightSky – Part 1”
The first part of the of the Strymon Brigadier-review was about the features of this digital delay pedal. This second part is dedicated to the sound of the Strymon Brigadier.
Th short mode, which is oriented to a one-chip delay, offers a beautiful slapback sound with at least up to 400ms. Maxed, the delay sound becomes somehow metallic – similar to an analog delay with an overclocked chip. The peak of the repeats is very realistic at the upper mids and cut very well through the mix. Continue reading “Review: Strymon Brigadier Part 2”
This is the first part of a detailed review about theStrymon Brigadier, a dbucket delay which emulates an analog delay is dedicated to the features of this digital delay pedal. The Brigadier comes around in a compact, green aluminum enclosure that is similar to the ones we know from the El Capistan, the DIG or the Flint. While these three are absolutely legendary, the Brigadier seems to be overlooked in a certain way. With justification? Continue reading “Review: Strymon Brigadier Part 1”
On this Paul Cochrane Tim I installed an internal switch for various clipping options. Now you can choose between the following clipping options: Symmetric/ asymmetric, LED, MOSFET or silicon. Continue reading “Mod: internal Clipping switch”
Who does not dream about starting crazy sound escapades, driving the delay to the border of oscillation and then, suddenly, turn back while you keep both hands on your guitar? The installation of an external switch enables you to choose via an expression-pedal if you want to control the delay time or the repeats by using an additional expression pedal. Continue reading “Mod: External switch to adjust the delay time via expression pedal”
“I am torn between the Strymon Volante and the El Capistan. I have seen your video a million times and am still not sure. I like the rhythmic possibilities you can get with the Volante, the rec level knob which can add some dirt to the repeats, the 3 delay types and the 4s max delay time. But I am tempted with the warm sound, and the simplicity of the El Capistan. I want the unit as a main delay (currently have a Boss DD7 which will stay on the pedalboard as a second delay). Do you think it is worth it to lose that extra warmth for all that pros of the Volante? Currently, I am playing a Les Paul through a Bugera 5W tube amp. I mostly play ambient and progressive to blues rock (Huge Pink Floyd fan). Also, if you have the time, what is your favorite (or favorites) delay pedal(s) and why?”Continue reading “Should I get the Strymon Volante or the El Capistan?”
