The Flashback is exactly what I had been looking for. It's compact (I believe it's the smallest pedal with a tap-tempo equivalent); It has good emulations of various delay types; Features analog pass-through of the dry signal; Runs on standard power.

Instad of a foot-controlled tap-tempo, the Flashback let's you dictate the tempo my holding the bypass switch down (which mutes the guitar) and strumming the tempo on the guitar strings. It works great if you're able to set the tempo before the song starts and can commit to it. But it can be a deal breaker if you need to change tempos mid song.

The various delay emulations are preset and can't be edited. But I find them to be very tasteful and not in need of tweaking. Note that the analog delays don't self-modulate or pitch-shift with knob turns like real bucket brigades do.

While the repeats are digitally generated, the dry signal remains analog. So it always feels natural.

The Looper feels like an afterthought. It outputs at a lesser volume .

The Flashback runs on standard 9v battery or normal AC adapter. It works in a pedalboard daisy chain with a typical "one spot" adapter. Also works with Sanyo Pedal Juice battery. Like most digital gear, it will eat more power than an analog delay.

It breaks, TC doesn't fix.

Same unit as the transition I bought, which promptly stopped working after warranty, just emits a high pitch squeal now, and TC won't fix. Just said out of warranty, tough luck.Read complete review

Last time I buy TC. I think they have quality control problems. And really don't care to find out what's wrong.

      Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Was in the market for a delay pedal. After watching a few online reviews I decided to pick up TC Electronic's Flashback Delay with Toneprint. This Flashback pedal has the ability to do any delay function you can think of and is ultra flexible so you can get the effect you are looking for find an effect that to inspire your creativity. Even at its most subtle setting it can really enhance the tone of your guitar. The audio quality is as pro as you will find in any pedal. In addition to a wide variety of delay settings you also have a very good built in Looper. This looper is very basic but it does the job and does it well.

      An area where this pedal really shines is with Toneprint, a setting on the pedal that allows you to transfer another players Flashback Delay settings to your pedal. TC Electronic as a Toneprint phone app that features delay settings from a who's who of guitar - Brian May, The Edge, Andy Summers and more... With your guitar plugged into your Flashback pedal you can "beam" the setting you like by simply holding your phone over your guitar pickup. I know, this sounds very Star Trek and I for one was skeptical but it works and it works very well!! For me this just makes the pedal even better and fun.

      So no matter your level of guitar or bass you are, I would highly recommend buying this Flashback Delay Pedal.

        Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I was considering a Strymon Blue Sky, but I watched a Youtube video comparing it with the Flashback. I was sold! The Flashback sounded very close at half the price with the added benefit of Toneprint. I will sit down to play with it for 10 minutes and up still playing an hour later. Highly recommended.

        Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I've had this pedal for a few months now and have been very pleased which what I got. I typically use a Carbon Copy as my primary delay, but the group that I am with now requires me to have a delay with a broader selection of sounds. The different delay sounds might leave aficionados seeking more, but when you're on the fly, this thing kills it. I've had some issues with TonePrints not functioning after using the tap function, but I don't know if this is a common problem for most people. Either way, it isn't too great of a hindrance for me since they have some really good sounds outside of the TonePrint options. I'd certainly consider giving this pedal a try if you are looking for a versatile delay unit at a great price.

          Needed delay on my leads. Tried a lot of delay pedals. Most affected my tone in a negative way. This one doesn't. In addition it has several delay types that are cool to work with. I like it.

            I use this pedal for several specific sounds. The tape delay setting is what I most commonly use. I also use the reverse delay with FX mix all the way up to do some reverse guitar sounds. The pedal is rugged enough to survive my board.

              Comments about TC Electronic Flashback Delay TonePrint Series Guitar Effects Pedal:

              There are too many good things I can say about this delay. I just got it today and I'm already madly in love
              with it. I'll admit it does take some getting used to, at least for me it does as this is my first delay pedal ever *gasp*. But I'm getting the hang of it and I absolutely love it. the different delays are absolutely awesome
              and I love the toggle switch to change the time, having the dotted 8th note is my favorite thing about this pedal. the only thing I could do without is the "looper", it seems to have no to little practical use since you can't use a delay over the loop (that's what the Ditto X2 is for). but other than the loop I absolutely love everything about this pedal. Like I said, it does take some time to get used to, but I've only had it for a few hours and I'm already getting the hang of it. So if you're thinking about this pedal, don't delay! (see what I did there?) it might seem overpriced but I assure you it's not!!!!!
