    The rush you've been looking for.

    The Akai E2 Headrush Delay/Looper Pedal picks up where the award-winning E1 left off. This stompbox brings together 16-bit digital delay with times from 0.5ms to an astonishing 35 seconds, tape echo simulations with 4 separate heads, and a looping recorder in one convenient effects pedal.

    In addition to offering digital and analog-type delay sounds, user-selectable delay options allow for maximum control of signal output. There are several realtime interval and level adjustment selections as well as feedback level for repeats.

    Headrush can also simulate a 4-head analog tape echo machine and it is possible to set the spacing between the virtual heads to create complex multiple delays and repeats. The outputs of each of the virtual heads appear on individual outputs for ultimate flexibility when used with an external mixing console.

    The looping mode allows you to record and overdub layer after layer of sound in real time making Headrush an unbelievable live performance tool.

    Depending upon which mode is selected, the left switch controls the on/off and play/stop functions while the right switch sets the tap delay time or recording and overdub options. The LED display indicates which effect is in use and blinks in time showing the delay time selected.

    Features

    • 16-bit digital delay
    • 0.5ms to 35 seconds delay times
    • 4-head tape echo simulation
    • Looping recorder: up to 35 seconds
    • Simulated analog delay sound
    • Adjustable repeat times
    • Mix wet and dry signals to output

    The Headrush is a beast of a delay pedal . . . pedal . . . pedal . . . pedal. You'll love it; so don't delay--order now . . . now . . . now . . . now . . . now.

    This pedal has so many features and is VERY easy to use. It does have a relatively large footprint, but this is a small price to pay for functionality. It has been able to record any riff I've played, even the longer ones. It saves a recorded segment until the power is disconnected or until you record something over it. Erase feature is very helpful.
    Sounds great and hasn't let me down. I do LOVE analog delay, but that's where i use my Memory Toy. i run this pedal last (right before my noise gate) so i can record loops of other effects.
    One of the best priced loop/delays out there. I did my research before buying and couldn't find a reason to go with anything else.

    The looper stopped looping...

    By spectabass

    from Ontario

    Comments about Akai Professional E2 Headrush Delay/Looper Pedal:

    This would be a great pedal if it was not for the poor build quality. When it worked it was lots of fun, and super simple to get a solid loop going. But it seemed like every tenth time i would make a loop it would completely cut out in the middle. After only two days the pedal completely stopped working. I'm not even going to bother getting a replacementfrom Akai. Very disappointing.

      Comments about Akai Professional E2 Headrush Delay/Looper Pedal:

      The first one I got was defective. I exchanged it for a new one. Right away, the looper was not working 100%. It would cut out once in a while and I would have to re-record. The tape delay is very cool. About two months after I bought it, it just stopped working. The tape delay still makes noise but not the way it should.

      Extremely useful and well designed pedal that's poorly manufactured

      Comments about Akai Professional E2 Headrush Delay/Looper Pedal:

      Overall this is a great pedal that works and sounds great, but it seems like i'm not the only person who has experienced problems with how it was made
      You can do alot with this pedal.
      This pedal is extremely well designed, but they are poorly manufactured. I ran into problem with it randomly erasing a loop in the middle of playing and also one of the foot switches not working. Fixing the solder job on the switch and cleaning the circuit boards of this weird glue/dirty that the factory didn't seem to clean off solved it.
      This is a sturdy pedal that works well with guitar/bass/vocals/etc., but should be assembled better for how much it costs.

      I have been playing professionally since 1965.The Akai headrush is by far the best delay/echo unit I have ever owned. I have had Echolette casstet, Fulltone Tape clone and everything in between. This little box is by far the best investment any musician can make.

      Comments about Akai Professional E2 Headrush Delay/Looper Pedal:

      I agree, this aggro guy is sadly mistaken. This looping pedal is AMAZING all around. It also has a killer tap tempo delay. I've been using this during live acoustic sets for about 3 years now and it has NEVER let me down.

      Comments about Akai Professional E2 Headrush Delay/Looper Pedal:

      When I saw AggroI-5's comment, I had to respond...this thing is built like a tank and is absolutely reliable. It's not as fancy as the Boomerang or Line 6 Delay Modeler but I like it better because of it's simplicity. I've been using it as a looper for 8 years and it has NEVER failed me. People should learn how to use the gear before they complain about it.

      Save You Money Huge Letdown

      By AggroI-5

      from Seattle

      Comments about Akai Professional E2 Headrush Delay/Looper Pedal:

      I understand that while you are in loop mode you must finish recording before you get to the end of the loop. However while letting a loop play maybe for a few seconds to a few minutes it will just drop out with out me touching it. and it will be erased as well. I bought for looping and it is unreliable. No tech support from Akai.
