Seymour Duncan tells us that the Vapor Trail is a true analog delay pedal using the famed Bucket Brigade Devices (BBDs), giving the pedal an authentic, vintage sound with warmth, fullness and depth, but with an immense clarity that keeps it from getting lost in the mix. They say that responsive modulation controls add shimmer and movement to your delay tone - with the Rate and Depth controls mounted right on the top panel so you can easily adjust them even in a live setting.
A spokesperson told us, "A little delay will add dimension and richness to your sound while cranking up the controls will provide truly mind-bending sounds."
A TRS insert jack allows you to add effects to the wet signal (loop the wet delay sound through a flanger, chorus, or other type of effect). You can also use this jack to output a wet-only signal for parallel effect loops or multi-amp setups, or you can plug in any standard volume-type pedal, crank the Mix knob to full, and vary the amount of wet signal from none to full-wet using the pedal. At maximum Wet setting, the first echo is actually 3dB louder than the dry signal.
To round out the special features on this unit, Seymour Duncan has made the Delay knob translucent with a cool blue LED that flashes to give you visual feedback on the delay time you have selected. They say that the Vapor Trail Analog Delay was designed for ease of use with knob placement and sturdy materials so it can hold up to the rigors of life on the road. Each unit is assembled in the Seymour Duncan Factory in Santa Barbara, California.
