The Celestial Delay provides over one second of delay time in a classic analog design that mimics the retro analog tape delays of yesteryear without the hiss and noise. You get smooth and seamless time shifting and regeneration. No stuttering here with smooth delay time control shifting. You can even create the classic "flying saucer" effect with ease, free of glitches found with most other delays.
Rocktron has provided a short/fast delay selector switch and a multiplier selector switch that allows you to choose whether or not to double the delay length previously chosen.
Controls include volume that selects the amount of delay mixed with the original signal source. Regeneration controls how many echo repeats are created. Time controls the Delay Time dependent on the Delay Length and Multiplier settings. The Delay Length setting selects either short delay range (fast), or long delay range (SLOW). The Multiplier setting, when out, doubles the Delay Length chosen previously.
Delay pedals usually sound better when placed after distortion, so if you are using a distortion pedal, place the Celestial Delay after the distortion pedal in the signal chain. If you are using your amplifier's distortion, try putting the Celestial Delay in the effects loop section of the amplifier.
For distorted rhythm playing, set the Celestial Delay to a short delay length, the delay volume low and the regeneration level low. For distorted lead playing, set the Celestial Delay for a longer delay length and bump up the delay volume and the regeneration level to your taste. For country picking type delay, set the delay length to short, and bump up the delay volume and regeneration levels slightly to create a perfect country slapback effect.
The footswitch on the Celestial Delay controls On/Off status (indicated by the LED). This stomp box runs on a 9V Alkaline battery. You may also use the Rocktron DC OnTap Universal Power Adaptor (not included).
