Overview

The Disaster Transport Sr is the much anticipated and updated reissue of the limited run Ghost Disaster pedal from 2010. Unlike the first version, which combined our Ghost Echo and Disaster Transport Jr., the Disaster Transport Sr was designed from the ground up to create an intense wash of lo-fi swirling tape styled echo. While it may look intimidating at first glance, it's actually pretty easy to navigate. The top row of controls are for delay A and the bottom row of controls are for delay B. Delay A is a 600ms delay with modulation and delay B is a 300ms delay with reverb. Both delays can be run separately, in parallel, in series or in series/parallel. To take it one step further, there are also expression controls for the repeats on delay A as well as bleeding delay A into delay B. The switching was designed so each delay can be used individually or in tandem with both true bypass or trails.

In addition to being used as a straight delay, straight reverb, rhythmic delay, modulated delay and old school tape-style echo, the Disaster Transport SR can also be used to create a wide variety of wild sounds ranging from warped records, clanging flange, smooth chorus, echoed out squalls and various other-worldly effects that will blow your mind, man. If you are a fan of old school tape delay and crazy lo-fi sounds, you will get hours of enjoyment every time you plug into the Disaster Transport Sr.

Hand made one at a time in sunny Akron, Ohio USA.

Features
  • Delay A Controls
  • Time- Controls the delay time from about 30ms up to 600ms.
  • Repeats- Controls how many regenerations of the signal there are. This ranges from one single repeat through an endless wash into self oscillation. This can also be controlled via an expression pedal. The Moog EP-2 is recommended.
  • Mix- Level control for the wet signal. Unity is around center, anything above is boosted. Boosting this works great when using a distorted signal. Please keep in mind this is a gain control, a bit of hiss is normal when it's above unity.
  • Depth- Controls the intensity of the modulation. From no modulation to all out seasick pitch bends.
  • Rate- Controls the rate of the modulation. The LED for delay A flashes in time with the modulation to visually show where the rate is set.
  • Bleed- This feeds delay A into delay B, post reverb (see block diagram for vi- sual explanation). Use this control for series or series/parallel operation to create rhythmic repeats, extra long delay time or an all out echo wash. This can also be controlled via an expression pedal. The Moog EP-2 is recommended. When using the bleed, experiment with the repeat controls on each delay line. Try using them in different settings, both together and individually, for different timing and textures.
  • Delay B Controls
  • Reverb- ontrols the amount of reverb added to the input of delay B.
  • Mix- Level control for the wet signal. Unity is around center, anything above is boosted. Boosting this works great when using a distorted signal. Please keep in mind this is a gain control, a bit of hiss is normal when it's above unity.
  • Repeats- Controls how many regenerations of the signal there are. This ranges from one single repeat through an endless wash into self oscillation.
  • Time- Controls the delay time from about 30ms up to 300ms.

      Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Disaster Transport SR Advanced Modulated Delay & Reverb Guitar Effects Pedal:

      First off, this pedal won't take anything away from your tone. Case in point, I leave channel B on constantly... it has replaced my amp's reverb. The reason I gave this pedal 5 stars is the "bleed" control, which applies the channel B delay settings, to the wet signal from channel A. It really opens the door for sounds that I couldn't imagine getting out of my old trusty Boss DD-6. Eerie, subtle, classic delay, or super washed-out ambient sounds if that's what you're into. I tend to use it on the subtle side of things, and it works great.

      Random notes: the LEDs are way brighter than my other pedals. The foot switches feel different from any other pedal I've owned. They click loudly and the springs are stiff. They do feel extremely sturdy but if you click this thing on during a recording, it's gonna come through the mic. At practice and at shows, it's not a problem

        Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Disaster Transport SR Advanced Modulated Delay & Reverb Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I've been craving an Earthquaker Devices pedal for a long time, because of their unique sounds. I've decided to go big and get this one, because I still needed a delay on my pedalboard, and because I really liked how it sounded. When I got the pedal, I was left nothing short of amazed. From the most serene, soft songs, to the craziest noise rock tunes you can crank out - this pedal handles it all flawlessly. It's also surprisingly small for how the pictures on the internet show. It's almost half the size of a regular EHX BMP. Speaking of the BMP, the pedal also plays incredibly with fuzz effects mixed in. The use of two different delay channels offered so much versatility that I still haven't found all the cool things I can do with it after hours of use. If you're considering buying this pedal, I'd back that decision because this is probably my favourite pedal I own.
