The perfect slap back, the perfect echo, the perfect pedal. The Harp V2 Delay replicates the exact tone being played in the echo. Great for jazz, folk, country, classical and anytime you do not want a darkened tone.
The Harp V2 Delay is designed for harp players who prefer more presence in their tone. As with the Harp Delay, the dry portion of the signal is left unchanged, but the Harp V2 Delay differs in that there is less filtering in the echo, producing a tone with more presence. Like the Harp Delay, it is not a tone-sucking modded guitar delay, but a tone-enhancing harp delay. The dry portion of the signal passes through high-value coupling capacitors, assuring maximum bass response. With a buffered FET input, your high-impedance crystal and CM elements will sound fatter than ever. The effect will make you sound almost as if two harps are playing, giving you a much bigger sound stage. This delay offers a tonal response similar to the Dan Echo and Boss, but with a bottom end that brings out the fat tone that we love.
The Harp V2 Delay has a broad range of effect. From the fat studio sound to slap-back to multiple repeats that fade away, the Harp V2 Delay does all of this without increasing risk of feedback and without weakening your tone. Not to mention that it is great for voice too. The Harp V2 Delay is guaranteed to please even the most diehard analog delay fan.
The V2 Delay is great not only for for blues, but also for jazz, pop, country, and any other genre of music. If you are having a difficult time choosing between the Harp V2 Delay and the Harp Delay, then I recommend the Harp Delay, which has a customer approval rating of about 99.9%. The V2 Delay was created for a smaller percentage of my customers who did not want to loose presence (treble) in the echo.
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 delay has a true bypass. 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 dry signal bass response and termination, distortion-free performance, and the filtering, which provides the effect of a distancing echo by reducing the highs more on every repeat.
The pedal can be powered with a 9V battery or a DC adapter. The DC adapter requirements are a regulated 9V DC with a minimum 100mA output and a 2.1mm x 5.5mm connector with a negative center. The battery is switched OFF when an external power adapter is used, and the "IN" jack acts as the pedal ON/OFF switch. Power adapters are sold separately. Because delay pedals are hard on batteries, with an estimated 10 to 12 hours of playing time, it is recommended to purchase the 9V power adapter, which is sold separately.
