The all new V3 Harp Delay is a unique tone-enhancing harp delay.
The dry part of the signal passes through a buffered input and high-value coupling capacitors, assuring maximum bass response. The echo is tone adjustable, allowing a broader range of sound, from deep warmth to a cutting tone. This digital delay has all the tone of an analogue delay and more.
The circuit is centered around a chip that has a low noise rating at < -90dBV, low distortion, < 0.5% THD, 44k digital processing, and is capable of up to 300ms delay. The input is FET buffered for high impedance to provide proper loading for your favorite crystal or CM mic. The gain has been reduced to prevent solid state distortion and is balanced to have an overall gain of 1x so that the level is the same when bypassed. The warmth comes from the superior bass response, distortion-free performance, and the echo tone control. The LED is ON when the delay is in, and is OFF when the delay is in bypass. The mic “IN” jack acts as the ON/OFF switch, and the bypass is a true bypass. The V3 Harp Delay should even please the most diehard analogue delay fan.
The settings are very basic. For a reverb type effect, set the DELAY at 10:00, REPEATS at 3:00, and BLEND from 10:00 to 4:00. To achieve a slap-back, set the DELAY from 9:00 to 5:00, REPEATS at 7:00, and BLEND from 10:00 to 4:00. To achieve an echo effect, set the DELAY from 8:00 to 5:00, REPEATS from 9:00 to 5:00, and BLEND from 10:00 to 4:00. This will get you started, but ultimately whatever setting you like is the right setting. The ECHO TONE only changes the tone of the echo, the dry signal is unchanged.
The pedal requires a 9vdc power adapter. The AC adapter requirements are 9v DC with a minimum 100mA output and a 2.1mm x 5.5mm connector with a negative center. Current draw is 57ma. This pedal is designed for use with a power supply only.
