Delay pedals come in all sorts of flavours – retro, modern, analog, digital – but sometimes you want a little bit of digital-style control over an analog-style tone, and this is where a lot of delay pedals fall flat. The true analog stuff is too unruly for the kind of fine control that digital can give you, while the digital stuff usually sounds too polite to really pass for analog. What to do, what to do? Well, the Cusack Tap-A-Delay might just have a solution for you.
This purple and green pedal offers up to 750ms of delay time. It features dials for level, mix, feedback, delay and an eight position modulation rotary control, while there are two three-position mini-toggle switches (Mode and Divide), two momentary-style footswitches (Tap Speed and Bypass) and two LEDs (Tempo and Status). You can connect other devices that accept an external tap control for other Cusack devices – it works as either an out or in, so somebody else can tap your delay – for example, maybe your drummer can keep a tap switch close by so they can deftly adjust the tempo of your delay. Or you can control the tap tempo of your singer’s own delay unit. Cool!
