1:22 more gain, low cut
2:04 really dark delay
2:57 two tape heads activated
3:56 gritty delay

Last year (after several years of playing the guitar) I finally bought my first effect pedals: the Walrus Audio Slö, the Earthquaker Devices Westwood and the Ditto looper.

This is a comparison of the Strymon Brigadier with the Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man.
The Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man is one of the brightest analog delays with a maximum delay time of up to 550ms.

0:11 Deluxe Memory Man medium delay time Continue reading “Strymon Brigadier vs. Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man”
