OVERVIEW

A fun way to play with your delay.

The Obscura Altered Delay from DigiTech allows you to turn your delays upside down and inside out. The Obscura' four delay types can be darkened, degraded and distorted on the fly with the stacked Tone and Degrade controls. Combine these controls with the Obscura' Repeat/Hold feature and lose yourself in long, trippy, gurgling repeats or backwards-manipulated sonic mayhem.

In addition to its Tone and Degrade controls, the Obscura features independent Level, Delay Mode and stacked Time and Repeats controls. Complimenting those versatile controls, the Obscura offers four excellent-sounding Analog, Tape, Lo-Fi, and Reverse types, Tap Tempo mode with Beat Divisions, Stereo Inputs/Outputs, a Delay Tails On/Off Switch and True Bypass circuitry.

With its compact size and vacuum-style footswitch, the Obscura furthers DigiTech' evolution in pedal design. DigiTech put years of experience into every detail of its mechanical and sonic blueprint.

The Obscura uses a 9V DC power supply to easily integrate into your existing pedal board.

    Comments about DigiTech Obscura Altered Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This is the most unique sounding delay I've played in a while... Besides playing a ton of other delays I oen way huge echo pu*s, suppa pu*s, mxr carbon copy, seymour duncan vapor trail, TC electronic Triple Delay, and I think that's it... But the digitech is the most unique sounding of the mall it definitely emulates the sound of tape better than any other. On tape sounds like you are manipulating real tape and on analog it sounds more like a vinyl record... But when you dial in a setting the sound quality is unsurpassed... And it is most certianly full STEREO O have a stereo setup and ot's pretty easy to hear th difference between a mono cable and stereo cable configuration... But the truth is it sounds great wither eay...
    Besides the ability to tweak the degrade which is similar to tape age on other units, the time and regen on the fly it sounds trippy. But there is also a tap and hold feature that you can use too if you rather jeep this unit on the floor... You press and hold and you enter the tap tempo feature and is really awesome..
    It might not be the absolute best sounding delay out there but for the price... The built wuality, the artwork., the design of controls , sound wuality and just the endless possibilities of a really hnique sounding digital but analog voiced delay... Definitwly worth the money... And I would recommend it over other like the carbon copy or the flashback..

      Comments about DigiTech Obscura Altered Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

      While this pedal does pass through a stereo signal, it does not bounce the delay repeats between the left and right output. I couldn't really tell that it did anything different between the two channels.

        Comments about DigiTech Obscura Altered Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        The only fault in this pedal is that I don't have 4 of them; One for slapback, solo, normal and effects. The will spice up any riff or even become the foundation. Works like a dream.
