MGR/jasonled75's review"Visual Sound Garage Tone Axle Grease Delay"

Truetone Axle Grease Delay
This is a hybrid digital/analog delay.
It has a metal enclosure. It is black with white writing. Simple 3 knob controls.

Im a hobbyist musician with a love of old rock n roll from early 50s rockabilly to 70s classic rock, I am also love the blues and vintage country music.

I bought this pedal from musicians friend for $69. I was looking for a good analog delay pedal but most of the ones I liked where way out of my budget. I ran across a demo of this pedal on you tube and like the sound so I went to visual audio's website and read more about it before decideing to purchase it.

This pedal has a very good vintage analog delay sound for the money. It is a hybrid meaning part of the signal path is digital but you can't tell it by listening to it. The price was very much a deciding factor for me as it was at least half the price of any other analog delay.

I havent found anything not to like so far. It really is a good pedal. Alot of people shun anything that is not big name or boutique but it is really the sound that matters.

It has a metal case. And seems to be a pretty sturdy pedal. The case is sheet metal like alot of electro harmonix stuff, not cast aluminum or pot metal.

Overall a very good pedal for the money. There may be better sounding delays out there but for the money you cant go wrong. And if another delay sounds better it wont be by much in my opinion.

Everything is said here: http://www.visualsound.net/index.php/products/garagetone_pedals/axle_grease_delay

2 things that bother me already: have to unscrew the bottom of the pedal to put a battery and the switch that makes a big plop when pressed ... Why are they not all switches that make no noise? It exists!
Otherwise, it's a good little pedal, simple, metal box, jacks that seem resistant.
The knobs are a little cheap, but their race is progressive, not too easy or too hard to turn.

UTILIZATION

Simple Config: 3 knobs
One-time
-One for the number of repetitions
One-volume rehearsals.

The manual is concise but adequate and provides examples of settings.

SOUND QUALITY

Used with Fender Tele, distal palmer on Kustom amp.
It is a very good analog delay, I was pleasantly surprised, really easy to adjust, does not distort the sound when turned off (high-pass), no variation in volume between on / off.
Rehearsals on the other hand are not completely faithful to the original sound (at the same time it is not digital), a knob tone was welcome nonetheless.
Opportunity to do go on testicle with extreme settings, I enjoyed myself.
The delay time is approximately 450ms announced, on the one I tested was higher (towards 550/600ms)
Most

OVERALL OPINION

:
Strength-
-Simplicity
-Sounds
-Price (69 euros where I've tried)
-Size (easy to squeeze in a pedalboard)

Les:
-Access to battery
Absence of tone
-No LED that flashes as a function of time delay, it would have been handy.
