Product Description:
ABOUT
To my knowledge this is the first delay designed for harp offered to the public. It is not a tone-sucking modded guitar delay, but a tone-enhancing harp delay. The dry portion of the signal passes through a buffered input and high-value coupling capacitors, assuring maximum bass response. The echo portion passes through 5 low-pass filters to provide maximum warmth. This is a digital delay that has all of the warmth of an analog delay and then some.

The Harp Delay has a broad range of effects. From the tiled bathroom Sun and Chess recordings sound to slap-back to multi repeats that fade out like a reverb, the Harp Delay does all of this without increasing risk of feedback and without weakening your tone. It is great for voice too. The Harp Delay is guaranteed to please even the most diehard analog delay fan.

If you are having a difficult time choosing between the Harp Delay and the Harp V2 Delay, then I recommend this delay, which has a customer approval rating of about 99%. The V2 Delay was created for the smaller percentage of my customers who wanted less filtering 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 bass response, distortion-free performance, and the filtering, which reduces the highs more on every repeat providing the effect of a distancing echo.


POWER
The pedal can be powered with a 9V battery or a AD adapter. The AD 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. We offer power adapters for US and EURO customers

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.

Lowboy Bootay (Massachusetts) - January 23rd 2015
I play keyboard harmonica, which has a timbre like a cross between a harp, accordion, and a horn. Over the last year, I have tried expensive tube preamps, channel strips, Lexicon multi-effects processors, and various EQs to try and obtain a rounded and pleasant sound. Of all these devices, the Harp Delay is the best. It is simple to use and provides a warm rounded sound without changing the character of my instrument. The delay adds to this sound by filling it out to provide a big smooth profess [...read more]
Slap back I've been wanting, unlike the ones I get from my wife!

Mark N. (Prague, Czech Republic) - October 14th 2013
Love my Harp Delay pedal. Very easy to twiddle the knobs and find just the sound you're looking for, and zero feedback issues. Just a fantastic product. This past Saturday, I did an outdoor duo gig with a guitar player from Chicago. He's VERY particular about nailing that Chicago tone and feel in any setting, and since he usually fronts a full band, I was a little weary of getting just the right feel to augment what he does. I was using my BlowsMeAway wood bullet with a CM element, my Marble Max [...read more]
Awesome! And a real fedback eater!!!

James (Venice Beach, Ca) - June 1st 2013
I bought this along with the Harp Shield for use with a stock Bassman LTD with a tube swap. Honestly it is so effective against feedback while giving an awesome tone I found the Shield unnecessary, sent it back and purchased the Harp Attack to pair with this. I've also played tenor and alto sax through the Harp Delay and the bright input on my Bassman and it sounds incredible and NO feedback and use the Attack thru the normal input of my amp TWO instruments, two pedals, ONE AMP and two complete [...read more]

Eric (big E And the Wild Hairs) (San Antonio, Texas) - January 19th 2013
This pedal adds a noticeable depth and fullness to the sound coming out of my Harp Gear amp. Definitely fattens up the tone quite a bit. I'm now adding a Harp Break -- it's on the way and I can't wait to pair it with the Harp Delay.
Amazing

Ale Logenough (Russia) - October 2nd 2012
This delay made ​​my sound more noble, more rich, more intense, more deep. Only the pros. To get my favorite sound with my other pedals I set the Delay at 15:00 Repeats at 13:00 Blend at 13:00. It's great. Many thanks to the creators of these wonderful pedals.
Love It: From an older pretty decent "Harp Player"

Great web site here and service was excellent. The "slap back" keywords found in your description is so true. "THE LONE WOLF HARP DELAY®" is one of the best of 'My Harp Related Purchases' I've ever made. Even my wife thinks i'm pretty cool. Having fun in life. Thanks You guys Are Great.
