There is a delay pedal any beast.

Fully analog.

A delay of 300 ms according to the documentation.

Entrance, two exits (one without the delay). A jack for external power. I try not to change the battery (I have just one power supply sector) but apparently it's pretty boring.

The pedal is all plastic, so it will not force long live fire but hey we'll see after all.
The knobs are plastic and also seems pretty weak people, be careful not to cum kick it ...

UTILIZATION

The pedal has only 3 knobs (Repeat Rate, Intensity, and Echo) which did not name which I was used (ie, respectively, Time, and Feedback Mix).
The manual is tiny and in English, but more than enough (just to see what the differences are actually knobs).
Not much to do, very immediate and pedal.


SOUND QUALITY

So here we go down to business ...

To my delight found the characteristics of analog delays. I find it very musical, it is really far from the digital delays that sound alike (that being said I have nothing against digital delays, so it's just not the same). Here it's dirty, warm, vintage instead (hence the name <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="wink" /> ).
The maximum delay of 300 ms may seem short to some but that's not bad, it covers a lot of cases, lining echos the sound of guitar in Pink Floyd or Radiohead doubling up, through a well slapback Messy as it should.

Another possibility, of course, put the pedal self-oscillation, which is always fun to do to get some nice effects and spectacular. Moreover in this connection, the knob intensity exceeds the threshold for return to self-oscillation when it is around 2, and it is not at once hyper progressive ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it now since a few days.
I had not specifically tried many models, especially simulation of analog or digital delay / tape.

With the experience I do not know if I would do this choice, saying that the Behringer Vintage Time Machine (or obviously a Deluxe Memory Man ...) told me really well and buy this little delay pedal than I no cut envy.

Nevertheless, in this price range, there is very little competition (or not analog) and this pedal gives a real time sound very nice.

Basically if you want a lil analog delay for really cheap (I paid 28 € postage included) do not hesitate a second, I think you will not be disappointed.
on the other hand, if you plan to buy it because you drooling every time you see a Deluxe Memory Man, that little Behringer can not do much for you ...
