Great delay
ArmandsV, 11.07.2017
In a nutshell : If there's a way to make a digital pedal, this is it. It sounds lively and real to me. Great build and options, only thing missing is tap footswitch.

It's a great build, has some decent weight, it looks great, knobs feel smooth and sturdy as can be.

I love the tails option, I sometimes use it as drone/freeze kind of effect kicking it in for one sound and then letting the tails go on as you play some lines on top of it.

Tap is incredibly important feature for me on a delay, I like my delays in time in very most cases. That's a bit of a problem with this pedal. It does have a tap function, but it's quite clumsy, because you have to hold the footswitch to go in tap mode first, and in playing situation it can be a distraction. For that reason I leave it in tap mode constantly. That said, it's a clever way they got this function in the pedal, while retaining the small size of it, which they worked for with the stacked control knobs too.

It has analog, reverse, Lo-Fi, tape modes.
The Tape one, is my favorite. If you crank the degrade knob, you can hear the repeats ascending and descending in pitch and the tone take up a character of some ancient equipment. You can dial it back all the way from there of course.

Analog gives you that rounded, warm tone.

Lofi can provide a different kind of distory degredation.

Reverse, pretty self explanatory.

Cranking the repeats can even get you the self oscillation that keeps degrading and going crazy as it goes on.

I love it, if you got the money for it, and a tap function that's a little hard to get to, doesn't bother you, go for it. Recommended.

Very reliable and original pedal
iAmKo, 02.04.2019
I use this pedal in a chain, it is a great addition to my pedals.

Easy to use, lot of different sounds. I mainly let it function with the lo-fi setting, deteriorating my guitarsound. The hardware feels very solid, even better than for example the Polara. The analog sound is very good, and the reverse is a very nice addition.

I don't use this pedal as my main delay, I have one with a better tap function but in a smaller setting I would not mind if this was my only delay.

I got this pedal for a very good price, but I would have paid the usual price for it as well. It definitely deserved a spot on my board!
