    Akai Head Rush - "Awesome Loop Pedal"


    This is a 3 in 1 effect pedal. You get Delay, Tape Echo and a Looper. The Delay is a very cool sounding effect with delay time of up to 23.8 seconds. The tape echo allows you to make use of the 4 outputs, so if you have 4 amps or speakers availa…

    Akai Head Rush E2 - "Wonderful"


    I use both the tape analog mostly but the digital delay works very well too. I use a TC Electronics Ditto for my loop. Both of these pedals are awesome; together, I doubt that there is a better combo for an on stage pedal board. UTILIZATION Tape an…

    Akai Deluxe Distortion - "Lives up to its name"


    This pedal is part of the Akai Analog Custom Shop line. I took a chance on it due to an insanely low price and I am happy that I did. It is an analog distortion unit with many unique and useful tools available. The six rotary knobs control le…

    Akai Head Rush E2 - "nice delay"


    The Akai Headrush E2 is a standard digital delay. It's pretty barebones as far as these pedals go. The settings are arguably the most minimal settings on any a Digital Delay, simply being able to adjust level, delay time, feedback, etc. The last swit…

    Akai Head Rush - Mig31's review


    Nice loop and delay... It's not rackable, but it's not expensive for what it does. I now have a workstation, so I couldn't care less about the looper, although I did use it live once!!! UTILIZATION Very, very easy, there's no need for a manual ─ …

    Akai Head Rush - "Akai Headrush"


    Bought it for my pedal board at West LA music for around $250. Excellent facsimile of the old multi-head tape delay units of the 70's. Also has looping, tap tempo and damping. Not truly analog, so echo rate can't be deconstructed as the tails fade.…

    Akai Head Rush E2 - carimbabar's review


    The E2 Headrush is a delay, echo, with separate outputs, and to a lesser extent a looper up to 37 sec. It was in the order of the knobs, the level of the effect (or loop in "variable" mode) a damp hf, which cuts treble on the effect, the number of …
