High End Delay Pedals -BEST VIDEO REVIEWS

SHORTLINK HERE: http://wp.me/pbr9G-3NC   MNEMONIC HERE: http://urlet.com/salaried.distributions
I don’t own any  of these, I simply can’t afford one.   But if I ever can I will get one.  I lean towards the Echolution myself, but that is based upon youtube reviews.  I would definitely try to compare a couple of these hands on before buying.   I do have a friend who has an Echolution, maybe he will loan it to me.  🙂  The others all have good features too.  At this level it is like comparing two high end guitars, which of course I can’t afford either. I am not complaining, me and my pawn shop specials do just fine. We both enjoy our second lives.

This is a work in progress, more pedals and more info for each pedal will be added as gathered.  Please feel free to comment or email me Humboldt.organizer@gmail.com


A couple of things so far that stand out for me anyway in these vids.   I like the Echolution phi repeats, they sound cool to me, that sound pattern, though the Echolution is not the very best sounding to me (but it doesn’t sound bad either.)  Also two of these pedals feature an internal effects loop of their own, so you can modulate the repeats with external effects pedals, and since I already own a Zoom ms50g this seems like a match made in heaven, especially for a studio context.  These pedals with effects loops are the Red Witch Titan and the JHS Panther, both of which sound great as well.

Empress Superdelay:


Killer Sound Quality – The Signal to Noise ratio is around 105dB.

2.8 Seconds of Delay Time – For your extra long delays.

8 modes – normal, tap, autoset (delay time is set by tempo played), reverse, rhythm mode (multitap), tape mode, misc (dynamic, gate), and 12 second looper.

Expression Pedal Input – allows you to control either mix or feedback with your foot.

High Pass/Low Pass Filter – high pass is good for electronic music, low pass is sweet for darker analog delay type sounds.

Fast/Slow Modulation – slow adds extra texture, fast is a little crazy.

8 Presets – Settings can be saved to 8 presets. With three stompswitches, accessing the presets is easy.

Tap Tempo with Ratios – many of the modes use tap tempo, and the ratio selection makes fast in-time delay times easy.

True Bypass – The Empress Superdelay employs true bypass, so you can be sure that it’s not affecting the signal when disengaged.

Small Size – The enclosure measures approximately 5.7″ by 3.75″ by 1.75″, which is delightfully small when considering all the features packed into this unit.

Two Year Warranty – The Empress Superdelay comes with a two-year warranty. Read our Warranty for details. You can extend the warranty to 4 years by simply registering online.

The Empress Superdelay does not run off of batteries. It comes with a power supply. The Empress Superdelay requires 300mA, positive tip, 9 to 12 VDC.

You can power the Empress Superdelay from outputs 5 or 6 of the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2+. You must set the corresponding DIP switch away from the NORMAL position. Also, since the Superdelay requires nearly 300mA, you should only use the other output for a much lower current pedal.

The Empress Vintage Modified Superdelay is a PGS special edition Superdelay that features extra modulation added to the Tape delay settings and some roll off in the Old mode that produces a more tape-like feel than the original circuit. The Empress Vintage Modified Superdelay will appeal to all…

Eventide TimeFactor:

$399 The Eventide TimeFactor Twin Delay Pedal serves up studio quality sound, and 10 Stereo or Dual Mono Delay effects. Included are Digital Delay, Band Delay, Vintage DDL, Filter Pong, Tape Echo, MultiTap Delay, Modulated Delay, Reverse Delay, Ducked Delay, and Looper.

With the TimeFactor Pedal you can change programs instantly. Enjoy real-time control with 10 knobs, MIDI, or an expression pedal. Set effect rates with Tap Tempo and MIDI Clocksync. The Eventide TimeFactor has 27 User Presets, a 12-second Looper, unlimited presets through MIDI, and true analog bypass.

Rugged cast metal construction, metal footswitches for Instant Preset access, mono or stereo operation, and gutter or line level inputs and outputs.


The JHS Panther Delay is an Analog delay pedal with all the extra toppings. Besides the Panthers warm analog repeats, it’s sports a lot of cool and useful tools under the trunk. An effects loop for adding other effects to your repeats… it’s own modulation (speed and depth knobs)… tap tempo… “ratio control” to give you quarter, dotter eighth, eighth and triplet divisions… a “chirp switch” gives you two flavors of analog: one is bright and chirpy like the vintage Boss DM-2 or Way Huge AP-1 while the other is darker and more in the background…Expression pedal ready… and it’s all powered by a regular 9 volt adaptor.
