OVERVIEW

From elastic delay to vintage slap-back echo, the VD400 harnesses the authentic sounds of 1960s studio wizardry.

Though digital sound technology constantly evolves, nothing sounds quite like the "old-school" analog bucket brigade-style delay you get when you step on the VD400. With its dedicated Repeat Rate, Intensity and Echo dials, this amazing little stompbox evokes the spirits of some of rock and roll's most legendary heroes, and provides up to 300 milliseconds of true analog delay. Every type of classic delay, from a deep-space whisper, to an interplanetary battle cry-is at your command.

Easy to Operate

The bright blue LED tells you when the Vintage Delay is activated (and serves as a beacon for other time travelers), and the top-quality on/off switch maintains excellent signal integrity in bypass mode. You can power the VD400 with either a 9 V battery or our PSU-SB DC power supply (not included).

Like a Trip Back in Time

The VINTAGE DELAY VD400 is like a snapshot pulled right out of time-and its low price tag will have you reminiscing about how much you miss those good-old days.

FEATURES
  • Experience true analog delay and vintage slap-back echo that rivals any tape delay
  • Vintage BBDs produce up to 300ms of delay and advanced noise reduction circuit keeps your signal clean
  • Dedicated Intensity, Echo and Repeat Rate controls for awesome sound shaping
  • Status LED for effect on/off and battery check
  • Runs on 9v battery or the BEHRINGER PSU-SB DC power supply (not included)
  • First-class electronic On/Off switch for highest signal integrity in bypass mode
  • High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life
  • Conceived and designed by BEHRINGER Germany

Classic delay sounds can be yours without breaking the bank. Order now.

You gotta hear this thing to believe it.

I'd guarantee you couldn't find a better NEW in the box sounding Analog Delay pedal for the price with a 3 year warranty from the company that makes these.

I needed an inexpensive delay pedal in a hurry, my go to pedal died. After receiving this low cost unit, I wasn't really expecting much. I plugged it in to test it, based on the control labels. I almost sent it back right away, something was wrong. Then I decided to play with it for awhile. The control knobs are labeled totally different. REPEAT RATE is actually the DELAY TIME, ECHO is actually the Pedal OUTPUT LEVEL and INTENSITY is actually the number of REPEATS. It is either labeled wrong or Behringer has a strange way of defining the controls, which by the way are pretty much standardized. YES, the manual defines the controls as printed, I did confirm this. Ok after understanding the new control language it works fine. It's a low cost unit, made of plastic , be careful handling it, but it does work and will do the job. Standard 9v power supply plug.

      Comments about Behringer Vintage Delay VD400 Analog Delay Effects Pedal:

      I just got the VD400 and put it through its paces. The sound quality is not bad, for the money its a good value. It does not change your guitar tone much, if at all. The case is plastic and I am not sure how much road abuse it would take. (in the studio it will last a long time) Getting a battery in it was a challenge, it has a very unusual way of opening the compartment, (you use a pen to push the hinges in). Once the battery is in it is a challenge to get it all put back together. The pedal spring will easily fall out if your not careful. (At a gig in the dark this could be a real problem) The controls are what you would expect. For a traditional delay sound I have the rate at 7 o'clock, echo and intesity at 12 o'clock. For a slapback the rate is around 1 o'clock, with echo and intesity at 9 to 10 o'clock. I do wish the delay was a little longer, but (again) for the money I won't complain.
      Overall, I like it and will use for all kinds of little Pink Floydish delay things.

          Comments about Behringer Vintage Delay VD400 Analog Delay Effects Pedal:

          I bought it to use with an old small Gorilla amp that has no effects. I use the amp for practice as it's small and portable. The VD400 pedal makes the amp come alive, even though it is small. I have a board with several effects, and an additional effects box for my large guitar amp, but the VD400 gives the small amp enough "presence" to be useable when I don't want to lug the big amp around. Although I wouldn't use it for a gig with the band I'm in, it serves the purpose for incidental playing.

            This sounds much like the Delay used back in the Sixties. ....Before Digital.... And I still believe in Digital...I'm the youngest VonNewman on the VonNewman team.. 1951.. The ENIAC.
            I like Analog too. Like...let's try the Darlington Amp... mine too.
            So now we have a world with both Analog & Digital.
            Why would you spend your life ignoring one.
            Try both of them, you'll like it.
            You can even try both of them at once.

            It's not a bad pedal but make sure you remove the battery after each use. The delay does work right it's a hard to find how to set the repeats but it does work. For us poor peoples this works great

              I bought this with a gift card just trying to spend it without going over. I was looking for a delay pedal that would cover basic needs, nothing fancy. I was amazed at the quality when I powered this up. It does have a small effect on tone, but in a good way, kind of like film vs high def. I am using it mainly just to fatten up my guitar sound, and it really fills it out. When used with my Morley JD pedal it makes a great addition.

                  I don't like an extreme delay so this one fits me ok. It can do the slapback type but I preferred the slow and subtle settings 9 - 12 - 9 O'clock. The sound quality is fine but I don't plan to use it all the time. Combine with DS1 in front, it comes out for 80's Hairband style solos as well as U2 and Pink Floyd sounds. It is on my pedal board for that type of stuff but I reserve it for solos.

                          I use analog delay as a very light "wash" set at about 1-2 repeats very low and at about 125ms. My favorite delay for the last 15 years is the Rogue Analog Delay and I was just curious how this Behringer would perform as I usually like their pedals (Swear by the TO800). It is nice but a but brighter than the Rogue model, almost digital. I definitely feel it is a valid pedal but given the choice I would stick with my old Rogue Delay.

                          I used this pedal once every week or 2 for maybe a couple of years, Recently I set it up... no sound.. changed the battery... no sound... changed the battery again... still no sound, no light, it was just plain dead. Additionally, you need to push in the pins on either side of the foot switch to get to the battery, it's put together very precariously and easily just falls apart when it's open. Great sound, poorly made.

                              Great value, for the price it is an amazing little pedal. I play a lot of 60s and 70s Rock and blues, perfect slap back, analog tone, it delivers. ...
