Delay with endless possibilities
22.04.2016
First of all, I've not used a lot of pedals until recently. I did not think it was necessary but as time passed I realized that it is good to be able to get a lot of different sounds for different occasions.

This pedal can do just that, it has several high quality delays and you can tweak them to your liking in so many ways! From subtle delays to big, spacious sounds, this pedal can do anything in between. I like the fact that you can use two delays simultaneously.

Pros: high quality build, high quality sound, more affordable than competitors, easy tweaking thanks to the display, very versatile.

Cons: some say it can sound sterile, but you can tweak the sound to your liking if you think so. The shimmer setting is good but not the best on the market in my opinion, hence the 4/5 in sound, the other delays sound great though.

I am really happy that I got this pedal, hopefully it will be used for many years to come.

Best pedal I've ever owned
Naf174, 26.11.2017
Desert island pedal right here . Its is fantastic. Especially now with the 2.0 firmware and pc editor . No more bending done to set up patches or make settings . Ignore any reviews which say is is cold and clinical , it is not. 95% of the presets out of the box need some work . Plenty of tutorials online. It can cover pretty much whatever delay needs most people require. Highly adjustable . You want bright clinical delays , no problem . You want warm lush repeats , no problem too . It can even give you chorus , tremolo and flanger effects . Build like a tank too and a great price for now . Snap it up before they jack the price up to 366 euros like the RV500 !
