really is a gem. Setting it up for a really long delay is my favorite
- a really haunting effect. I can make some fantastic spacey sounds
when I use it with a Big Muff and Electric Mistress together.
Really impressive slapback too. I usually stick to a digital delay
for short delays because they're tighter. But this one is much
warmer than a DD3.
Comparing it to a Boss DM3 is tricky as the Boss does give more
control over the delay time. The Loco Box seems to go from reasonably
long to infinity with barely a touch of the repeat control knob.
Having said that, tonewise it holds its own and there's absolutely
no volume boost or coloration when switching - something which
can't be said of my DM2!
I'm really pleased with it and will watch out for other Loco Box
gear in the future. Don't be put off by the naff 80's cosmetics
- this pedal is worth 5 times the £26 I paid for it! The
electrics are a really pro job too - no cheap, badly connected
components. Hope you can get your hands on one of these soon and
see what you think of it.
