That Pedal Show – Mega Delays Part 1: DL4, TimeFactor, TimeLine, H9, Tonal Recall & Echolution

Published on Aug 26, 2016

In this episode Daniel and Mick take a brief look at the venerable Line 6 DL4, before moving on to the delay revolution that it spawned.

It wasn’t so long ago that having more than one delay option on your board was for pros only. These days it’s absolutely commonplace, and the DL4 plays an important role in that evolution, offering a huge number delays in one pedal, with three at your feet.It changed everything for pedal-loving delay users all the way back at the turn of the century. Phenomenally popular, they still make ‘em.
