Value For Money : Excellent
more analog delay pedal tap tempo (which can quantize time signatures with 5 ...), entrance for expression pedal (which can control four parameters to the choice ...), an effects loop and a true bypass .... that you ask for ...

a bypass switch and a tap switch

- Blend to the level of delay
- General level for the level of the pedal
- Rate for the modulation of delay - the volume pot is lined by a low cut ... hmmmm ...
- Depth to the waveform and its amplitude
- Feedback to feedback
- Delay for delay time

- TAP Button DIVIDE - you take in the black with the tap tempo and delay hold on to the rhythmic division selected ... so cool it
- EXP. MODE Button - you select the setting you want to control with the expression pedal ... ecstasy!!

UTILIZATION

A gas plant, but logical, efficient and well thought out, the edition of the sounds is so simple. As always with ehx, minimalist manual ...

SOUND QUALITY

The bin for me is the holy grail, I was looking for an analog delay with the possibility of feedback controller. In fact I love have fun with self oscillation, is happiness ... more force to bend and break the back for noisy phase or ground ...
Beware the sound is really analog, bold, dark, thick, alive and vibrant, that's what I was looking for the most clear and discrete delay, I vox time machine ... but with the low cut you can lighten the delay and make it thinner, it's very damn well that ...
expression pedal is the foot, beyond the feedback, the controller can delay time (and here we dub hop ...), the rate of modulation (experimental. ..), etc, etc.. ..
loop to assign effects solely on repetitions of delay, so cool that too, sounds of space ....
in short I am very far from having explored all the possibilities of the beast, and always pleasantly surprised by the sonic explorations that allows ...

OVERALL OPINION

Used for 3 months I have tried and owned a lot of analog delay (Carbon Copy mxr, ibanez, byiang ...). In terms of sound, it is perhaps not the most subtle (compared to mxr example, but it is well worth the ibanez or after Maxxon to me), I love a beautiful vintage color, and question parameters and controls, it's happiness ...
It's a real tool for sound design and experimentation, which may have to use any source (I tested with BAR and synth). It is all very well what all the other analog delays, but also especially what others can not (expression pedal, low cut, divide tap, loop ...). and what's more, in view of competition it is downright cheap ... excellent value for money, or even huge!!
It would be crazy to spend more!!
