Overview

The Obscura Altered Delay from DigiTech allows you to turn your delays upside down and inside out. The Obscura' four delay types can be darkened, degraded and distorted on the fly with the stacked Tone and Degrade controls. Combine these controls with the Obscura' Repeat/Hold feature and lose yourself in long, trippy, gurgling repeats or backwards-manipulated sonic mayhem.

In addition to its Tone and Degrade controls, the Obscura features independent Level, Delay Mode and stacked Time and Repeats controls. Complimenting those versatile controls, the Obscura offers four excellent-sounding Analog, Tape, Lo-Fi, and Reverse types, Tap Tempo mode with Beat Divisions, Stereo Inputs/Outputs, a Delay Tails On/Off Switch and True Bypass circuitry.

With its compact size and vacuum-style footswitch, the Obscura furthers DigiTech' evolution in pedal design. DigiTech put years of experience into every detail of its mechanical and sonic blueprint.

The Obscura uses a 9V DC power supply to easily integrate into your existing pedal board.

        Comments about Digitech Obscura Altered Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Wonderful little delay with a wide variety of sounds. Stacks great with other delays and is out of this world ambient when combined with a deep washy reverb. The tape delay warble with the degrade on full is very realistic as is the bucket brigade decay with the analog delay. The lofi is especially useful for shoegaze type riffs where you want some note definition but also having it blend into the overall wave of sound. The reverse is really cool with volume swells and for intro/outro sections. This pedal sits on my board with $300-$500 delays and easily holds its own. Only real problem is that the tap tempo is a little difficult to access on the fly, but that is really a minor complaint.

          I don't use delay very often, but when I do...
          Great delay. I wasn't looking for anything too complicated. I like the variety of voicings yet it's Simple and sounds great and it's small! I have a small board. I like the silent clicking. The rubber knob holder is a smart idea.

          Comments about Digitech Obscura Altered Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

          This pedal is designed to make unusual delay sounds, including tape echo effects like deteriorating repeats. Includes a usable reverse effect. Sample and hold can be difficult to control, and requires manipulating a knob after you've gotten the sound that you want to repeat. Compact size is nice, although initially it made manipulating the control knobs difficult. I've had fun running it after another delay (and it is stereo)
