Y'know... if you want to. I'm trying to cobble together a new board to get me away from familiar territory. I guess I should just use my M9 but that's no fun. I've been having googling everything, but I know you guys like a good challenge..

ARE YOU A BAD ENOUGH DUDE TO TRACK IT DOWN, SHORTSCALE??

Wishlist, I've Been Ever Such A Good Boy, Santa:

  • Digital or relatively hi-fi analogue
  • Tone control: definitely a high-cut, ideally a low-cut/high-cut to thin out either the lows or highs on repeats depending where the dial is
  • Modulation with speed and depth controls
  • At least 750ms delay time
  • Mix control that can go 100% wet, or even better separate wet and dry controls. EHX blend controls SUCK for delay effects.
  • Non-digital interface: totally fucks with my mojo.


And..... GO!

xx

DOD Rubberneck but I don't think it has all the wet/dry mixing you want. Good weirdness factor, though.

Oooh, good shout! Does seem to have a 'NO DRY' with tails option, so that may work out great. Just need to look at demos to see how hifi/lofi it is

I think the rubberneck and regen (oscillate) features are great.

You're most kind, darlinkkkk, but I really want those mod settings; trying to avoid having to pick up a vibrato pedal too

The Rubberneck looks pretty sweet but I honestly don't think i'd ever use the Rubbernecking feature, and there's other boxes that do the rest, and for cheaper...

You should check out a Line 6 M5 or similar, oh

in that case, obligatory Memory Man with Hazarai recommendation?

I had one 6 or so years ago, and not only did it break on me, the EHX mix pot is THE WORST. Unless you're running into compression/dirt, your clean signal disappears as you mix delay in. Amazing FX though.

A flurry of video-watchin' and GuitarGuitar demoing later, I just picked up a EHX Canyon to celebrate a slight pay raise.

They definitely undersell the things this can do; the SECONDARY DIAL mode means you can tweak other parameters on the same dials. It for sure does ace delays with various modulation and octave effects, but with 100% wet and 0ms settings, it does great standalone vibrato/chorus, octave and reverby stuff. V impressed for the cash, esp as it's also a 66 second looper and does nifty sample-hold shit too.

And they sorted out the shitty Blend control as seen on the SMMWH!

Haha the Canyon is the next pedal on my list....tried one at GC just because they had it hooked up and I was sold in a few minutes. A lot of pedal for $139.99

I got it for 131 at GuitarGuitar in Camden (webprice, the sticker said 180 in the shop and I kicked up a stink)

It's really sick. Spent an a few hours with it last night, so many sounds. It cops some of my favourite SMMWH sounds too, so I'm heckin' made up Very Happy I think they definitely need to make a Deluxe version with the secondary dials as their own physical dials, would be surprised if they didn't.

The addition of the extra additions to the delays means this thing can be SOOO much more- eg, the Tape Delay with the 'tape degradation' dimed and running the setting at 0ms delay (or near enough) at 100% wet = gnarly fuzz.

Best 'inspiring' pedal purchase I've made since the M9, I reckon; will defo have to do a video at some point
