Lone Wolf Harp Delay Pedal
The first delay designed for harmonica. "Not a tone sucking modded guitar pedal but an actual tone enhancing harp delay" Dry portion of the signal passes through high value coupling capacitors for maximum bass response, the echo portion passes through 5 low pass filters providing maximum warmth. This digital delay has all the warmth of an analog delay and more. . . It has a broad range of effect; From tiled bathroom Sun and Chess recording sound, to slap-back, and multi repeats that fade like reverb. Doing all without increasing risk of feedback, or weakening tone - it also works great for voice. This Harp Delay pedal is guaranteed to please the most die-hard of analog delay fans. www.lonewolfblues.com
