The Earthquaker Devices Disaster Transport Jr. is a compact delay pedal that is designed for use with electric guitar, but suitable for use with any electronic instrument. However, I’ve only used the pedal with electric guitar, so I’ll be focusing on use of the pedal here. It’s got a pretty standard configuration in terms of it’s general characteristics, with ¼” connections for input and output and a nine volt power supply jack. The pedal isn’t going to be rackable in any fashion as it’s a foot controlled pedal.
You don’t need to know much or have much experience with other delay pedals in order to use the Earthquaker Devices Disaster Transport Jr. The controls that they give you to work with here include those for time, repeats, mix, and tone, which are all pretty self explanatory parameters, even if you’re new to using delay pedals. A manual isn’t something that I’d think would be necessary here…
The tone of the Earthquaker Devices Disaster Transport Jr. is incredibly open and wide. It’s a really clean sounding delay pedal as you won’t get any extra sounds or noises other than the repeats. The sound of the pedal reminds me a lot of the type of delay The Edge would use from U2, although I know his delays are much more in depth than this – it’s just that kind of vibe. I’ve used the pedal for a recording session with a Fender Telecaster and a Fender Pro Reverb amplifier.
The Earthquaker Devices Disaster Transport Jr. is the perfect little delay pedal if you’re going for this kind of sound. Of course there are endless varieties of delays out there, and while I wouldn’t say that this is the most versatile delay pedal on the market, for what it can do, it’s really great for it. If you don’t use delay all that often, the pedal will undoubtedly do the trick for you, but if you’re looking for something with a bit more control, you’re probably going to need to look elsewhere or use this in tandem with a different type of delay pedal. Having said this, if you had to have one type of delay in a compact unit like this, the Earthquaker Devices Disaster Transport Jr. would be a terrific choice!
Pedal mixed analog-digital delay /. Connectivity standard. I did not know much but the echo itself is a warm analog sound, the sound reproduction is handled digitally. I plugged yesterday for the first time and actually I remember DD5 much colder, there is one room in the seventies, has a limit on tape echo underfoot.
I have not read the manual, there are four pots: time repeat mix tone. No peculiarities. I just do not know how I'll know my time delay or the number of repetitions, there is nothing shown on the pedal, I want to read the manual.
So I think it do exactly what I want: the atmosphere floyd, flawless, no noise, clean and warm at the same time ...
I bought it in the U.S. on a trip a month ago, I just opened the box. I squinted before my trip on a T rex replica but when I came across a store in Brooklyn I saw this model I do not know, and considering the price (about 90 € there) I did not hesitate. So I bought the whole store of pedals and I will return to the U.S. to clear dautres stores pedals!
on the other hand after installation on my pedalboard ... I find it a little hair, not easy to move her big full fat fingers between small and delicate knobs, it does not appear on the photo but I say that is the only negative I've found him. I would do this choice because for the price this is what I could find better!
