Ideas For Using Two Delay Pedals [Long & Short, Digi & Analog, Patterns, FX Loop & More]
Published 26 Aug 2022
Welcome to the show! We are massive fans of delay and echo tones here at TPS. It’s hard to imagine a scenario where either Dan or I would use a board without a delay pedal on it… And then comes the problem: when there are so many great sounds available which //one// do you choose? For sure a multi-function do-it-all delay is a great solution and many of them have dual delay functionality to boot. But there’s also something incredibly satisfying – and in many cases more easily accessible and achievable – when you go for two separate delay pedals. Or more…
With that in mind this show expands on some ideas of how to use two delay pedals for maximum inspiration and effect.
Enjoy the show!
