Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.
Welcome to the show! You could definitely say that Dan and I are big fans of ‘character’ delay sounds. From the behemoth Binson Echorec T7E to Roland Space Echoes, the Maestro Echoplex and more, we have done many a deep dive on these cornerstones of guitar echo tones (please check out our Delay & Reverb playlist in this channel).
What we haven’t done however is a more entry-level/overview-type comparison video to give newcomers a basic idea of the key schools of character delay… erm, until now.
In this episode we leave out the vintage esoterica and ultra-boutique unobtanium and instead assemble our faves in the current character delay pedal world in order to inspire you towards some more inspiration and fun with the humble echo pedal.
Do we need to repeat that? Yes – endlessly!
Enjoy the episode…
