- Short term slap back delay pedal.
- Create reverb / echo sounds.
- Volume, Feedback, EQ and Rate controls.
- Analogue sounding.
- True bypass.
The AE-1 is great at creating short term delays up to 250ms as well as bright reverb tones. With the Feedback control turned down you can create a simple clean delay. However increasing it allows the delay to be repeated creating an echo / reverb effect. Unlike some delay pedals, this repeat effect never gets too experimental sounding / feedback.
Experimenting with the settings you can also get a fatter sound from your guitar which still maintains some subtlety. So if you want a beefier tone which doesn’t actually sound like you’re using lots of delay, this could be the pedal for you.
Can create sounds similar to the popular Boss DM2W.
