Product Description

Why only a short time ago, (no pun intended), the digital delay was considered the greatest effect invention a guitarist could get his hands on. Like everything else in "excess-laden" America, delays had to be longer and longer. To that, Rocktron says, "nuts". What if the player just wants to add some short, sweet, quick slapback-style delays to his sound? You remember slapbacks, don’t you? They ruled the 50’s and 60’s sound – think Rockabilly and Hot Rod and Surf music. Well, going out on a limb here, Rocktron introduces the Short Timer Retro Digital Delay. And some of you are going to think this is cool! With two modes of delay, called (and we made this up), "Short" and "Shorter" to provide a wide range of quick delays that are still the most widely used delay times even in modern music, the Short Timer will NOT stand up to those long delays for length. But then, we don’t want it to. Some like it short and sweet. The Level control on the Short Timer adjusts the overall volume of the delay effect. The Regeneration control adjusts the number of repetitions of delay effect. The Time control adjusts the length of delay and is used in conjunction with the Short/Shorter Switch. When the switch is out, (or in the Short position), the delay time in milliseconds is set between 200ms and 400ms. When the switch is in, (or in the Shorter position), the delay time in milliseconds is set between 0ms and 200ms. The actual delay time is then adjusted using the previously mentioned Time control. Digital delay pedals usually sound better when placed after distortion. Thus, if you are using a distortion pedal, place the Short Timer after the distortion pedal in the signal chain. If you are using your amplifier’s distortion, try putting the Short Timer in the effects loop section of the amplifier, (following the instructions in your amp manual when using the effects loop). For distorted rhythm playing, set the Short Timer Delay to "Shorter" and the delay level and regeneration levels low. For distorted lead playing, set the delay to "Short" and bump up the delay level and the regeneration level to your taste. For chicken-pickin type delay, set the delay level to "Shorter" and bump up the delay level and regeneration level slightly. The Short Timer is built into Rocktron’s super tough road worthy extruded aluminum chassis. This pedal is equipped with a super bright blue LED so you will know when the pedal is on. The easy access battery compartment will make changing batteries during a gig a breeze. In the market for a delay? Check out the Short Timer!!

This pedal is a great digital version of an analog delay. It definitely colors your sound but, for my ears, in a good way. If you want decent slap-back to short delay at a reasonable price this is a great choice. Also unlike most delay pedals this one functions extremely on batteries even when they no longer are fully charged.

This pedal isn't bad. It's more for a rock-a-billy or surf oriented guitar player. it's definitely better for cleaner types of playing. If you're looking for that long sustained type of Jeff Beck or David Gilmore sound there are better pedal for it. Like the Boss DD-3 or a TC Electronics pedal. Surfers and Billies are going to love this pedal. For me, I need something more along the lines of the Boss or TC pedal. So, don't judge this pedal as a bad one. It's just not meant for the heavy distorted type of settings. I still use this pedal on occasion but I think I'll also be looking at a different delay pedal that's more suited for high gain applications. rock on.

Ok i bought this thinking it would be good and add a new dimension to my sound....well it did a very crappy one..its either on or off theres really no adjustableness to it...they said its a great tone booster well its not maybe a great humm booster....so if you play beach boys stuff buy away but if your a real guitar player buy something else.......
