TONE TALK | Echoes and Delays
From the very first tape-based echo units to the most advanced delay pedals of today, have been changing the face of music. Vocalists to strings to percussions wouldn't dream of recording without first drenching their tones in reverb. Listen to U2's guitarist The Edge on "Where the Streets Have No Name," and you'll hear the stunning guitar delay that has influenced a whole generation of modern players. Finally, modern looping pedals have enabled performers like Ed Sheeran to elevate the traditional singer-songwriter experience to a new level by using a variety of instrument and vocal loops performed live.
Echo. Want to sound like you're playing inside a cathedral minus the actual cathedral? Use an echo effect. Vintage analog echo effects are highly coveted and still in use today, giving you the space that your tone needs.
Delay pedals can ping back a signal with a very short delay time, similar to an echo, or with such a long delay that you can play a new melody over the top of the original one. Delay can also produce a variety of interesting noises that guitar players have made their own signature sound with the help of this pedal.
Reverb is a sort of an echo-upon-echo effect; each echo decays at a different rate, making the signal sound like it's bouncing around an empty room emulating the natural way that sound waves decay.
Like delay pedals on steroids, looping pedals enable guitarists to layer multiple phrases on top of each other to create interesting musical textures. Musicians like Ed Sheeran and Howie Day are known for looping pedals.
