Don't Forget

Catalinbread began working on an oil can delay (later to be named the Adineko) in the Summer of 2012, about the same time they were working on the Echorec. They identified a number of very cool behaviors of the old units, though the differences could be dramatic from unit to unit, or day to day (even hour to hour based on the temperature of the oil). The positive behaviors were a cool, bright, but murky sounding echo with a vibrato modulation that lined up with the echo time, and a repeat quality that had a ‘fog’ that hovered in unique way.

You will notice that each of the Adineko cases have been aged. It just seemed fitting for this, which is inspired by the old oil can effects, to look physically weathered and a bit stained.

As they always strive to do when making something old, new again, Catalinbread wants to honor the old experience and expand upon it. The Adineko is no exception: the murky warble of the old units, traditionally only achievable when the oil’s thickness is incorrect, can be conjured a twist of the VISCOSITY knob. The warm echo quality has an expanded range of delay time (TIMING knob), more so than any oil can unit could ever hope to achieve. The dual playback head is continuously balanceable (BALANCE knob) to favor one head over the other for interesting syncopation feels.

The Adineko can achieve authentic oil can sounds, but is designed to mode the mechanical concept and deliver results well beyond what was possible with the original units.

To dial an authentic oil can sound:
TIMING to 9-10 o’clock
VISCOSITY to 9-10 o’clock
REVERB to the verge of self oscillation
BLEND to 12 o’clock
BALANCE to 12 o’clock

Now you will hear all of the hallmarks of an original oil can unit. A relatively short echo time on two taps, a vibrato in the concert with the delay time, and a reverb that sounds like a low lying fog coalescing upon the verge of a self-oscillating resonant point. To get the vibrato sound of a Tel-Ray Deluxe Organ Tone, use the above settings, but turn the REVERB down and the BLEND up to taste.

Must be powered with a center-negative, regulated 9 - 18V DC external power supply.

    Comments about Catalinbread Adineko Oil Can Delay Guitar Pedal:

    I viewed Catlinbread's promo of this Adineko Oil Can Delay on You Tube, which featured a guy in a hardware store(great bit), describing the original effect from the past. I got it today, plugged in a detuned Tele, and followed the suggested settings which produced a dark motion sound. It is going to be an effect that will have to be thought out in it's use in my music. I recommend viewing that You Tube spot and decide if this delay is for you. I might add that the folks at Catlinbread seem like a good bunch of audio geeks that will keep producing effects for us in the future.

    Comments about Catalinbread Adineko Oil Can Delay Guitar Pedal:

    What strikes me about this pedal is that it sounds great on it's own. It's a delay, but it sounds like a reverb, delay, tremelo and modulation pedal all in one. Whenever In play with this at home I end up turning all other pedals off so I can just hear this one.
    I HIGHLY recommend watching videos of this pedal to get an idea of what it does and what it sounds like. This is NOT the pedal to get if you're looking for crisp, 'pingy' delays. I wouldn't recommend this as a delay to add rhythmic repeats to your playing (like The Edge). I was actually hoping it would sound more 'pingy' than it does, but I've come to love this pedal for what it is, not what I wanted it to be. It just really sounds awesome.
    This is a fantastic pedal for slapback delay and to add space to your sound. This is a great pedal for clean or slightly overdriven guitar for alt-country, jazz or blues.
    The self oscillation sounds really really good. It's easy to set it to a quiet, throbbing self-oscillation that fills in space and almost acts as a tremelo.
    I prefer to use this before any overdrive or distortion. I like the way it sounds into my Boss Super Overdrive. The boosted mids make it sound spookier. This would be a fantastic pedal to use with 2 amps, 1 wet and 1 clean.

      Comments about Catalinbread Adineko Oil Can Delay Guitar Pedal:

      This is one of those pedals I immediately liked as soon as I plugged it in to have a go. It is a moody delay sound. Easy to dial in good sounds. It gets longer repeats than demos on youtube display, Floydian territory. If you're the kind of player that likes to sound a little different from everyone else. This pedal has that character without getting too weird, very musical. It's simply fun.
