Delay pedals play an essential role in outstanding guitar performance.
Delay effects can be created with a variety of musical devices. In the 1940s and 1950s, guitarists produced delay using tape loops. Analog and digital effect units appeared in the 1970s and 1980s. And, audio software plugins came along in the 2000s.
Some classic guitar solos you love would not be the same without delay. Take some massive hits like “Brighton Rock” by Queen, or “She Sells Sanctuary” by The Cult.
But even seasoned guitar geeks have difficulty choosing the best delay pedals. Reasons vary. Some have no idea about guitar pedals. Some cannot tell apart difference units. And, some do not know how to connect all of them in a sequence. The overwhelming number of delay effects on the market also confuse those who are searching for a quality unit.
That is why the Musical Study team put together a colorful infographic offering insights into choosing guitar delay pedals. Check it out below.
