Delay pedals with low cut out there?

    I am looking for a new delay pedal. I don't care if it's analog or digital, but what I really want is to be able to EQ the repeats to cut out the bass frequencies. Modulating repeats would also be a nice bonus. Can anyone suggest such a pedal to me? I've tried to search around, but I can barely find ANY that have such an option. Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure the Electro Harmonix Memory Man w/ Hazarai does this.

    Eventide TimeFactor. And I would guess the Strymon TimeLine. Both big on size, price and options.
     
  4. Boss DD-20 can also do this.

    TC Electronics Nova Repeater or Delay.
    They have a tone knob that allows you to seriously cut the low end (or high end if you would like to) of only the repeats. Another knob gives two modulation choices: vibrato or chorus.

    I own a Repeater for some years and love it: great sound, tap tempo and a ton of features in a moderately sized and priced pedal! I don't seem to miss any of the extra features that the (more ecpensive) Nova Delay offers.

    Does the tone knob on the DD-20 not effect the tone of the played notes as well when the pedal is active? I used to use one and 'thought' that was the case - It has been a while though.

    The repeater has this option, but the Nova Delay does not. The Delay replaces the tone knob with a colour knob which emulates analogue, tape or digital delay. While this does effect the 'tone' of the delay, it also adds the character of those delay types and can't be used for any sort of 'low cut'. The delay has more modulation options than the repeater, but it sounds like the low cut is the priority here, so I'd avoid that one.

    The M9 can do this (and a whole lot more). A bit large perhaps for just a delay pedal though.
     
  8. Good question, I'll give it a shot tomorrow night at practice. I usually keep the tone knob pretty neutral for my uses.

    Awesome! Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I'm looking into all of them.
