Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail Delay Pedal
Seymour Duncan introduces another stompbox for guitar, the new Bucket Brigade based Vapor Trail delay pedal.
Seymour Duncan Dirty Deed Distortion
This new analog delay pedal comes with deep controls and expanded wet/dry effect stacking and chaining capabilities.
Seymour Duncan describes the new Vapor Trail as a true analog delay pedal that produces classic vintage analog delay sound, they add that the sound is "warm, full, lush and packed with vibe and musicality".
Like the previously released Seymour Duncan Dirty Deed Distortion, this new pedal does not end with just analog sounds - it packs expanded control and other extra features that make it easier to integrate into your setup.
Three big knobs on the face of the pedal let you control essential parameters including Mix, Repeats and Delay. The translucent Delay knob comes with a blue LED that flashes in sync with your delay speed. This will let you visually monitor your delay time to match the beat of your music conveniently.
Aside from the big three, two smaller knobs let you adjust the rate and depth of the effect. You can utilize these controls to shape the delay sound and to add modulation. According to the manufacturer, you can "apply a little bit of delay and modulation to add a hint of dimension and richness, or go all-out crazy – the Vapor Trail can do everything from subtle to mind-bending. And all the points in between, of course. You can get between 15ms and 600ms of delay from the BBDs, which are supported by modern low-noise analog electronics: no microprocessors or digital signal processors."
The Vapor Trail Delay pedal comes with a TRS insert jack that lets you add effects to the wet signal. This will let you add flanger, phaser or other type of effects to the wet signal without affecting the original note. This feature can also be used to output a wet-only signal for parallel effect loops or multi-amp setups.
Finally, all these features are packed inside a sturdy die-cast housing that is meant for years of use. Seymour Duncan says, "The knob placement is optimized for ease of use and it’s made of some very sturdy materials. We assemble each unit here at our Santa Barbara, California headquarters."
Some online retailers are currently listing the new Vapor Trail Delay Pedal for preorder, with a tag price of $198. For more information, head over to Seymour Duncan.
