Analog Delay pedal Battle Royale – the winner is…

Was in need of a decent analog delay for Site B to go in the FX loop of my Lonestar.

..in the ring were:

  • Brian Wampler AnalogEcho (SGD $300)
  • Biyang Analog Delay (SGD $100)
  • ModTone Vintage Analog Delay ($120)

The kind gentlemen in Standard Value Guitars was most accommodating and put the pedals in series for me to A/B them (or A/B/C them – guffaw) to my heart’s content, so I spent a fair bit of time doing direct comparisons of sound.  I  plumped for the ModTone in the end. Honestly, I could not notice a sonic improvement of the Wampler that was worth $200; in fact, it didn’t sound as if it had any distinguishing sonic characteristics at all – sure it’s hand built and probably uses much better grade components and has another knob, but I’ve got beyond paying $300 for one pedal these days unless it really sounds wow.

The Biyang was OK too – decent enough sound, but I didn’t  like its size which was about half as big again as the ModTone.

So here it is in its Opening Of Box Experience glory. A very nice box I might add. No, the box doesn’t affect the tone, but it’s nice just the same. Made in China. Sounds great. Looks great. Great value. Considering buying more from their range.
