PT2399-based delays are digital delays, not analog delays. That said, they sound great and lots of people can't tell they aren't analog just from the sound -- but they shouldn't be advertised as analog delays.

Repeats are actually fuzzed using conditioned ac power source. High pitched squealing from jack. Constant feedback pops.

Started to return before realizing over 20% cost to return. Opened up and found cold solders everywhere and low quality components.

Given cold solders and components actually glad I bought pedal before ordering Jet city head. Can't trust QC of one and not other.

      Comments about Jet City Amplification The Flood Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I wanted to like this pedal because the sounds are , overall, pretty good. But the LOUD POP it makes when you step on the pedal to activate the delay completely ruins it. Also, you have to stomp really hard on the switch to get it to turn on. If you don't stomp it hard enough the light comes on as if the effect has been activated, but no sound comes out. These issues makes it unuseable for live performance.

        Comments about Jet City Amplification The Flood Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Agreed this is not an analog circuity effect pedal... but who cares.. it does the job fabulously for this price. Its all as analog-sounding as an MXR, EHX, Ibanez.... etc . Purists may loathe but on a side by side test you'll find same feedbackin', slappin', echoin', pongin' as true as those pedals of olden days. No popping noise from engaging the switch other reports mentioned in my experience. Does not appear to be issues with durability in my experience with Jet City pedals. Great value.

          I've experienced no pops, static, or LED issues when using this pedal. I'm using this with a Snark power supply. The design is simple, and the controls work well. This is a much more rugged design that the delay pedal I've replaced, and the large knobs make fine adjustment of the controls a lot easier.

            No issues with design, parts, or build quality. Refreshingly simple to use without thinking about numbers. No adverse tonal effects. The size of the knobs allows a nudge adjustment with my barefoot. Low noise. Color may appear more green than the photo on this site.

              I experienced no issues with the switch. Everything worked fine. The large knobs made it possible to nudge adjust with a foot (on purpose.) It is has the range to cover doubling, slap back, quarter note delays. Low noise and analog. Not demanding for power--I used the the 100mA output out of the Voodoo Lab power supply. The actual paint looks more green than the yellow look on

                Comments about Jet City Amplification The Flood Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

                I bought this on the SDOTD for really cheap, and I'm shocked at how much I like this pedal. The chassis is sturdy, quality steel. The controls are sensibly responsive, and the sound quality is great. I'm not a fan of jet city amps (i've returned two that I bought), but I have to say that this pedal is great. I'm actually considering replacing my (cost of current delay pedal prohibited by MF cuz they sux) delay pedal with this one on my board. Can't say enough good things about it.

                    We are a working, touring band. We play a lot of shows. Our lead needed a new delay and I just so happened across an email that this was on sale. Took the chance and boom super fast delivery outstanding sound quality and durability. I'm glad I pulled the trigger. It is a most useful tool in his arsenal of effects. Thanks.

                      I picked up The Flood on a stupid deal of the day. I had been looking for a delay pedal for some time and i decided to give this one a try. I'm playing a Schecter with EMG 81 & 85s through a Jet City Tube amp. I was very pleasantly surprised with how amazing this pedal is. No bells and whistles...just a simple delay. Easy to use, great tone and no trouble. Only one complaint...the toggle switch is very stiff. Its easy to press it but not activate the pedal. It's a bit stiffer than my MXR Micro chorus toggle.

                      I like to use it with a short delay time, about halfway on the repeats and level knobs. With this you get a nice tone that adds a lot of feeling and character. I love the spacey sound it gives with this sound...almost like a reverb. Of course, you can add much longer delay time if you want to use it as more of a "delay". I am planning on keeping this as a permanent part of my pedal board.

                          Worked like a charm right out of the box with my previous AC adaptors. I got none of the issues previously mentioned (delays still ringing out after punching it off, etc). I got it to cause self-oscillating havoc and I have no problems landing the aliens with this.

                          I hoped this was going to work out well. Simple to use to get the effects you want. When it worked it was great however it worked for an hour. I went away and when I came back and turned it on I got all kinds of distortion or nothing at all. I managed to get it to work a couple times more and it was great but then I'd come back to it and nothing. Don't know if I just had a bad unit. Too bad, when it worked it was great.

                          I really like this pedal with the repeat nob all the way down or very close to all the way down. At high noon it can create its own feedback loop. That might be cool to some but it annoys the f#€& out of me.

                          I am a fan of the time range. If your looking long delays this is not the pedal for you. it can get so tight that it almost produce reverb. Or it give a nice rockabilly or surf delay.

                          The most important thing is it is quite.

                            I needed a simple, easy to use, short to moderate length delay effect on my guitar pedalboard, and so far this one has been absolutely just what I needed.

                              the ranges of the knobs are quite wide so if you set it for too many repeats and / or too long a delay you get the device itself to feedback. I love this! This is probably why they use the 'analog' descriptor for this PT2399 chip -based design. at the higher speeds it works better than most PT2399 based circuits and it's a cool sound through a big amp. very decent for the price; did not experience any of the manufacturing problems reported by other users.

                              I got this pedal on one of the Daily Deals and I love it! So simple to use and priced right! I've had so many much more expensive delay units and this one is the one I'm keeping! I don't need super long delays or tap tempo so I am happy with it.
