I don't see the point in the "boutique" delays.

The most expensive one I have past the actual Space Echo (well, duh) is the fake Space Echo, the Boss digital one, that honestly I use far more than the real thing these days. It gets the pre-amp right, the edge of oscillation where it doesn't runaway, et cetera - the stuff it doesn't is < 2% (and you have to start tweaking the unit to get there, so not normal spec), like my preferred setting where the erase head doesn't quite erase EVERYTHING from a previous pass so there's a long, long echo to the length of the tape.

I do have a Maxon AD999 pedal on my pedalboard that I'm using for a doubling effect. It wasn't cheap and I'm glad I'm finally getting some use out of it.

Yep, figured that deal would not last.

Mine should be here Saturday.

FedEx lost it for a week.

Arrived today.

The thing is certainly in a class of its own - I have never seen an analog delay capable of doing sound on sound, and wouldn't have believed it possible. It will. It's a bit grainier than digital (to put it lightly) in that respect but...with selectable tails on/off, can make it do sound on sound with ease.

It also does infinite or near infinite repeat (I haven't sat there for an infinite amount of time, so can't confirm) without spaceship mode engaging. It does a fine spaceship, don't get me wrong - hut this thing is bridging a gap between the old analogs I'm used to and my Space Echo. If I stay in the lower part of the delay length dial, it does all the traditional analog stuff you'd expect, but frankly, this pedal is wasted if that's all one is doing with it.

Built-in modulation puts it into the realm of my old LFO-included first generation digital rack delay as well for weird, and it also will let you drive the delay repeats into their own distortion on demand.

I haven't even been able to touch the internal effects loop (only affecting the repeats) yet as I don't have a TRS breakout cable long enough.

If this thing had been demo'd for *these features*, I'd have bought one when they came out!

Very cool!

I let this deal pass. I kinda wish I hadn’t, but I am swimming in delays. And I’ve got a Pigtronix Echolution w/the external pedal. That thing does some very wacky stuff.

That must've been a scary week, Rev!

What do you mean by "sound on sound"?

Enjoy your new acquisition!

Sound on sound like the old Echoplex/Chorus Echo - can have it echoing whatever's in the loop and play over it (and add to it to a certain degree).

It's not just "short echo" that analog delays typically are (and it's not a PT2399 digital karaoke chip that many "analog" delays are, but an actual BBD chip bank)

It's somewhere between a digital delay doing similar and my actual tape delay - the longest analog I've handled previously was about 400ms and got darker and grainy enough to be damn near unusable at that point.

Well I have to admit, this thing sat in the box for a while before I messed with it. I just jumped on it a few days ago. I don't even have two hours into it.

So far this pedal is kind of a head scratcher just trying to figure out how to use it.

There's no doubt this pedal can do a lot of tricky stuff. I'm having trouble reigning it in.

I had some good effects when I copied the settings from a guy demoing the pedal, but as soon as I got off the reservation, things go down hill quick.

I guess I'll just have to throw another key on the fire, and keep trying to figure it out.

The big thing is that the controls don't really have guide rails - like the good old stuff, you can make ...dismal stuff as well as glorious.

The manual explains most of it well.

Gain in addition to the grit you can add will also interact with the feedback knob - basically that's the thing on damn near every knob on the thing.

They're all interactive to almost absurdity.

That said, I Love mine.

It's living as the standalone delay for my little Marshall, and does what I was using the Space Echo for otherwise - delay that actually sounds good in front of a Marshall without being in the loop (which is how I prefer it for that particular amp sound).

Ya I was hoping to not have to resort to the manual. I guess I'll put on my Foster Grants, and take a look.

Thanks.

I've never heard of this pedal. Now, I have one on the way. Used, mint condition, way cheaper than any Strymon pedal I've seen.
Thanks guys! ;)

Manual isn't difficult, but you ARE using a complicated monster!

"Manual isn't difficult, but you ARE using a complicated monster!"

Yes, I and I usually shy away from complicated stuff! I still use the ME-70 because it's so easy. This pedal is incredible!
I bought it to use at church but I'll have to be really careful with it. But it sounds so awesome, I had to get one. Thanks again for bringing this to my attention. Better late than never..... ;)

Here is the best "manual" I have found for the Rubberneck Delay!

Great demo

I found just playing with stuff, but I'm not afraid of the crazy (and can pretty much dial in a delay that makes me happy on anything that repeats!)
