Cheating on My Tape Delay! Shhhh!

Let's face it, if the God's on Mount Olympus wanted delay, they would have used a tape delay. But as someone who has used tape delays live and in the studio, I have learned one very important thing in my years of experience, don't use tape delay's live unless you like living on the edge (not in a good way).

I'm not one of those purists who thinks that digital killed the audio star and that tape was the best format or any of that other nonsense, but tape delays have those remarkable imperfections that create spontaneous sonic magic so I have been chasing that tone in a more relaible format for years. I have a tape delay unit as well as other analog and digital delays (including the Reel Echo) and each has their own unique cool, but my search is pretty much over. I don't think I'm going to get much closer sonically and simply put, I love this pedal. It can re-create pretty much any delay sound I want including my coveted tape delay sound, without worrying if my tape unit made the journey safely. It's durable, the switches are smooth and the unit is big enough to adequately see the controls when playing live. If you write songs, this has the power to inspire some really creative ideas.

There is one legitimate con, which is that it takes up a lot of pedal board space. The unit does sound a bit processed at times and not as natural, but I like that, so if you are a purist, you may find this a problem. Also, if you need exact setting references, there are no LED read outs to guide you (like the new Vox delay, which also sounds more transparent). I've tried the new Vox unit (big Vox fan one of my favorite amps), but, for a delay effect, I am looking for that smooth reliable sound, giving up on the tape benefits live and in certain studio situations.

This unit needs a lot of time to play with and I suggest that you read the manual first like other Line 6 products to really get a full idea of the unit's potential. All in all, this is now the best non-tape delay unit that I own.

It has great delay features. The are all really warm and can fill a room really well with some rich delays. It's easy to use and the tap tempo makes delay time shifts easy on the fly. But I have to knock it for it's durablility. I have had a Ibanez DE7 echo/delay for 3 years and I have had not a single problem with it. All the features are not worth this repeated crap out. Bottom line, it's so frustrating that this thing is such a great pedal and it will just die on you with no warning. I won't be replacing this
Good variety of delays. Looping is easy to use while playing and the 1/2 speed and reverse are nice extras. You can only recall 3 presets at a time but I had the analog, auto volue, and reverse preset in and that covered pretty much everything that I needed. In all honesty I didn't use all of the different types in any practical situation but the ones I had preset were go to, especially the auto volume.
Mine was a refurbished unit bought on discount from the site and it's broken down 2 times in the 5 months I've had it. The first time it got repaired on warranty, but this time it just shot out on me without any incite as to why. It's a sturdy box but the footswitches are kinda fragile and it wouldnt take much to break one. I've heard of these things breaking down easy even if they're brand new, so something to consider.
I enjoyed every second of playing with this unit but I hated everysecond it wasn't working.

Comments about Line 6 DL4 Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

I got this years ago when it first came out, and was impressed. The variety/quality of delays, and the fact it has a built-it looper make it worth the money. I'm sure that tone snobs could point out the differences between this pedal and the various classic pedals that it models, but it does a good job for the money. My only two beefs are that it doesn't have the MIDI compatibility or smaller footprint of other pedals now on the market (like the Boss DD500 and Strymon Timeline).

Comments about Line 6 DL4 Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

Great effect pedal, selection of options and sound quality are great, I've had three though and they all malfuntioned and stopped working. I tried rewiring the switches on one and it worked for awhile then went caput. I hope Line 6 can resolve this issue, If they did I would be gun shy, but would still probably try another one if I was convinced that it wouldn't break with careful normal usage.

        Comments about Line 6 DL4 Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I am a big Tom Petty fan, and I have noticed that both Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench use the DL4. After experimenting with other delays, I realized that I should just try to get a DL4 and see how much it helps achieve the Mike Campbell sound. I think it makes a big difference!

        I appreciate all of the different sounds available, and I'm honestly still discovering more as time goes along.

        I haven't noticed any problems with volume drop or anything like that. I bought my pedal in September 2014 in a Labor Day sale here at MF.

          Second time this thing broke, i would highly suggest going for another pedal. look at the videos online of how many people have problems with this as well. to high of cost to fix. Tech support has not helped at all, for the price its a great pedal but you have to understand it will only last you around a year to two years until it fails

            Comments about Line 6 DL4 Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

            This is a great delay pedal. Very versatile and can achieve a lot of different sounds using this. Very easy to dial in a sound you like and it is responsive to the way you play. Have had mine for a couple of years and it can take a lot of abuse. Probably the only thing made by Line 6 that I've liked. Only have two complaints. One, the power supply is ridiculously big and a pain to deal with if you already have a ton of cables to dodge. Second is the delay looper is somewhat confusing and would love to learn how to utilize it but in the two years I've had it I still can't get it to work well. Digital delay setting is mainly what I use and it sounds pretty close to my old Boss DD-3. Anyways, I love mine and will probably never use any other delay again unless I'm recording and want to play around. Great pedal overall, buy it!

              I see why many Pros have this peddle included with there peddle board. It has many effects that sound great. You have to take some time to learn how to use it but once you do it is simple, you can learn in a few hours and have a ball with it. Great Tip check out You Tube and watch some demos.
