OVERVIEW

Features Tap Tempo and a range of sonic effects.

The Seymour Duncan Deja Vu SFX-10 guitar pedal features Tap Tempo to match the delay time to the tempo of your music, and its Ratio Control gives you multiple delays for each press of the Tap Tempo footswitch. A tempo "Heartbeat" flashing red LED keeps everybody honest (or, at least, in time), and a Modulation control that lets you add a flange/chorus effect to the time delay.

While the Seymour Duncan Deja Vu SFX-10 includes the standard wet/dry Blend control and the required delay time adjustment, the Deja Vu SFX-10 also features an analog/digital Blend control, to achieve any desired level of balance between the warmth of a real bucket brigade delay and the squeaky-clean sound of a microprocessor-based digital delay. The effect pedal also has a Feedback control allowing you to dial in a runaway recycling of your sound in the style of an analog tape echo.

The Deja Vu SFX-10 also features 2 insert jacks. The Feedback Insert jack allows an external processor to be included in the recycling path so the processor's effect becomes more intense at each regeneration, thus continuously morphing the delayed sound as it recycles. The pedal's Wet output/loop jack works on the sound after it leaves the recycler, allowing custom tweaking of the overall character of the wet signal before it recombines with the dry signal.

Both insert jacks can connect directly to a standard volume pedal, so the Regen Insert jack becomes a foot control for the level of regeneration, and the Wet Insert jack becomes a foot control for the Wet/Dry mix. You can connect 2 footpedals at the same time for ultimate control of the delayed sound.

Connect a second amp to the stereo output to hear an incredible, ethereal, space-filling stereo effect. Or use the stereo output by itself to get a sound with a totally different timbre.

Nice job

By king

from toronto

The ratio - time control could use improvements. Its often hard to tell what the settings are. Leds for the time signature would be helpful, and an improved looper with overdubs and a more reliable selector control)

If they could they that, I might even buy it as well.
Ok, its obvious that this thing is packed with features.I wish Duncan took greater advantage of the digital side of this unit, by offering reverse and slow echo features, rather than just extra chorusing chooses.
The flanging effects may be useful for some, but I find them to mostly muddy up a live guitar sound.

The option too chose between true bypass and buffered, is brilliant. (Trailing repeats on or off)The main guitar signal goes through untouched.
This is a great pedal
The first one had a bad trailing switch
The replacement is doing fine, after a year of use.

best sounding delay

By ropeandtar

from Kent, OH

I have played several delays, including the DD20 and the EHX Memory Toy. This sounds better than any of them. The details of this pedal are what really sets it apart as well: an option between true bypass and trailing repeats, a analog vs. digital mix knob, and a single-layer loop up to 20 seconds in length. Also, the modulation knob has a lot of power and versatility. One can achieve through experimentation a variety of chorus, flanger, and leslie-like tones. These are great on their own, or applied to repeats only. Two things come between this pedal and perfection; it only does a single layer of looping, and there is no expression option for delay time. Regardless, it is the best delay that I have ever played or heard.

The DejaVu Has Come Through After 2 Months Use

By Ron56V

from Orange County CA

I?ve been playing guitar for 40 years and am an electronics tech hobbyist for 12 years. With the exception of the Line 6, because I didn?t have room for it on my board, I tried and returned every Tap Tempo Delay stomp box on the market including the T-Rex. Some units cannot handle a high level signal like the Boss DD7. Every unit has it?s own tone shape. Most of them wrecked my tone. At one point, it was a toss up between the DejaVu and TC Nova Repeater (tried the ND1 also). I flipped a coin and returned the DejaVu. The Memory Boy sounded nasally in the high end when it was on or off. It was horrible in my system. The Vox Joe Satriani Time Machine was very warm. It was excellent if all you ever want is one sweet sinning tone for lead. In the on or off mode, the full range edge guitar sound will not pass through it. I perform a variety of styles on the fly and can?t have it in the effects chain. So, I shipped it back, although I wanted to keep it around for special jams or recording.Finally, I exhausted all products on the market. After playing through the TC for a month I realized the bottom end was too big and buried the midrange articulation. Also, the tone of the wet signal never inspired me so I returned it. I bought another DejaVu and really am glad I did. It handles the high signal level and has the most transparent tone. It has a very slight tightened bottom end in the non-true bypass mode and perfect in true bypass. I use it in the non-true bypass mode. This slight shape helps my tone line. There is some hiss in the Digital mode but not that bad. There is more hiss in the Analog mode but not nearly as bad as a couple other brands I tried like all the Boss and Digitech units. For an Analog Delay, I chose to go with MXR Carbon Copy. I needed to modify the tone in the on mode with a 220P cap (works great now, no hiss, very warm). I use the DejaVu in the Digital mode only. The wet digital tone is too perfect of a replication for me. I needed to roll the high end off some, more like an analog delay tone. So, I elected to use the DejaVu?s wet/dry and repeats insert capability to fix the sound. I use a Boss FV-50L foot controller with the HF caps removed and added a switch to add 1200P capacitance to the patch cables which also provide some capacitance. This cuts some of the high end on the wet signal. Awesome! I love this thing! Having the foot controller is a great asset for live performance. My rig setup works best for me with the effect chain in this order: Wah, Tremolo, three different overdrives. Then I go into a Digitech RP 250 modeling processor. I use Fender Twin, Deluxe and Marshall JCM 800 and 900 models. Then I go into the DejaVu then into the Carbon copy. From there I go into one of my 3 Custom Fender tube amps with either the Celestion Greenbacks or Vintage 30s speakers (flavor of the month changes with me). I run the amp clean all the drive and volume come from my pedal board. I?m very happy with the whole thing. There was a problem with the DejaVu when I bought it. The ground side of the input and output jacks had an intermittent failure to ground to the chassis properly. This caused serious clicking when turning it on and off. Soldering a couple wires to the cassis and jack terminals took care of it.Thank you Seymour Duncan and Musicians Friend. P.S. the mods were easy to add without a schematic. Any good tech can figure it out.

The DejaVu has come through after 2 months use

By Ron56V

I?ve been picky about my sound for about 12 years. I?m a rocker guitarist and electronics tech hobbyist. With the exception of the Line 6 (didn?t have room for it on my board), I ordered tried and returned every Tap Tempo Delay stomp box on the market including the (expensive) T-Rex, which was the last unit, I bought and returned. I found a wide range of power handling ability and electronic tone shaping wrecking my tone in the various units. At one point it was a toss up between the DejaVu and TC Nova Repeater (tried the ND1 also). I flipped a coin and returned DejaVu. There was one brand, I don?t want to discredit them by saying their name, but in the true bypass mode there was this nasally high end that was horrible in my system, it?s not logical but it was bad. Some units have some bad hiss. The Vox Joe Satriani was very warm and was excellent if all you ever want is one sweet sinning tone for lead. In the off or on mode, the full range edge guitar sound will not pass through it. I perform a variety of styles on the fly and can?t always have it on the board so I shipped it back although I wanted to keep it around for special jams or recording.Finally, I exhausted all products on the market. After playing through the TC for a several days I realized the bottom end was too big was to big for my system. So, I bought another DejaVu. It handled the signal level and has the most transparent tone. It has a very slight tightened bottom end in the non-true bypass mode and perfect in true bypass. I use it in the non-true bypass mode.

I use the DejaVu in the Digital mode only but the wet tone is too perfect of a replication for me. I needed to modify the wet signal. I need the high end rolled off a little more like an analog delay tone line. So, I bought a Boss FV-50L foot controller, and use the wet/dry and repeats inserts. I removed the HF caps on the foot controller and added a 2000P capacitor to cut the high end on the wet signal (experiment, you might prefer 1000P). Awesome I love this thing!
