We’ve heard it said before that all delay pedals sound the same. “Surely they just make an echo don’t they, they just copy what has just happened, don’t they?”
Well, theoretically, they do. But, if you take a few of them, and then listen to each one properly, you will quickly see that some sound cold, some sound dirty, some sound warm, others sound... well... you know.
So, if you wanted a delay pedal, just a normal one (not one that does everything yet in reality, nothing that actually sounds good), what do you want? You want an accurate replication of your tone, one that you can sparkle up if you want, or maybe cool down to give an older analog sounding warmth. You want enough delay time to give you loads of echo, yet you want it sharp enough to give you a fast, accurate slap back. Basically, you want something that you can use and lets you still sound great.
Enter the Wampler Pedals Faux AnalogEcho. Quite possibly, the best sounding delay pedal available today. Just ask Brad Paisley. Or James Burton, Oli Brown or maybe Brent Mason. People who know a good pedal when they hear one.
The Faux AnalogEcho is based around the industry leading pt2399 chip. The industry standard for delay pedals. Wampler Pedals treat the signal path in such a way that the dry path and the core signal are completely unaltered, the chip is only used to make a digital replication. With this, the sound remains exactly as you want it. No coloration. With the addition of a tone knob, you can incorporate a little sparkle for digital crispness, or take it all the way out for the most amazing analog warmth.

Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.
For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.
For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.
I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
