Overview

A prophecy was once told of a highly affordable studio-quality delay pedal that would give musicians all the pristine digital delay tones they could ever want. From short reverberating slapbacks to long and stretchy beds of ambience and anywhere in-between. Well, not only is the foretelling real. With The Prophet Digital Delay, the prophecy just came true!

Perfectly Pristine
The Prophet gives you instant access to crisp and clear digital delay tones. There no vintage flavor here, just modern and perfectly pristine repeats. Great for iconic rhythmic delay tones ala U2’s The Edge, cascading post-rock ambience or for more contemporary rock and country tones.

Time Is The Essence
A good digital delay should sound great, be versatile and be easy and fun to use. The Prophet ticks all the boxes! The toggle-switch lets you instantly set the max length of the delay time, so you quickly can jump from a fast slap to arpeggio-approved rhythmic delays and all the way up to 1300ms of delay for those huge soaring solos.

Space Is The Place
The Prophet features a space-conscious and highly roadworthy design with top-mounted jacks so you’ll be able to fit it into your setup whether your board is the size of a football field or a shoebox. And with True Bypass thrown into the sonic equation, The Prophet is the delay deal of the century.

Backstage Pass – All Access
Let’s have a quick look at the controls of The Prophet, so the next thing on your to-do list is to just plug in and rock out!

It’s About Time
Controls the delay time. Get faux-spring reverb tones and superb slaps at low settings, and cool rhythmic and solo delays at higher settings. Time is literally in your hands now.

Please Repeat That
Controls the amount of delay repeats. Set it low for fast decaying delays or max it for a wildly cascading and oscillating echo explosion.

Master The Mix
Mix is crucial for a great delay tone. Lower the mix for more subtle ambience, and crank it when you want the rhythmic feel of the notes to stand out more.

True Bypass
The Prophet always respects your tone. It enhances it when on, and leaves it completely unaltered when off. Like a true tone gentleman should.

FEATURES

  • Studio-quality Digital Delay pedal
  • Three delay time settings – gives up to 1300ms of delay
  • True Bypass and top-mounted I/O

I got this pedal as an impulse buy, it was recommended to me by a employee (wish I could remember his name). He said this pedal was excellent for delay effects and the quality for the price was outstanding... I have to agree with him. Whether you're going for a subtle bit of reverberation, a nice bit of slap back, or you have a sudden urge to play some classics from U2, this pedal is perfect for the price. Experiment with it to find some of the more interesting quirks, like setting the decay to max and letting the sounds add up and create a sound vortex. Turn the pedal off, leave for a bit, comeback and turn it on and the sound will still be there, waiting for you.

Lots of great things I've with this pedal, and plenty more to discover.

A decent delay but you get what you pay for. The build quality is great and it's pretty solid. However, it's a bit noisy and definitely makes your sound have some extra hum/buzz that isn't welcome. Also, it accepts an internal 9V battery (not included) but you have to take the pedal apart to install the battery. And I'm not sure what they point of the battery is, because it seems to drain the battery when not in use and/or in bypass...2 dead batteries in 2 days, so this one is pretty much going to require you use a 9V power supply instead (not included).

      Outstanding delay. Very easy to use. Clear sound. Very versatile. Transparent, that is won't color your tone. It would be a great pedal at double what I paid!

      Good overall delay if you want a nice, clean, sound with easier adjustments for a slow delay time or a fast delay time. I love using this specific Prophet delay when playing any Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, Tool, U2, and Soundgarden songs.

      Comments about TC Electronic The Prophet Digital Delay Effect Pedal:

      I've tried a bunch of delay pedals. I don't use mine for extreme effects. I mostly use it with very slight delay, repeat just once and fad out immediately. It is hardly noticeable as a delay. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the battery replacement procedure. I'd prefer just a simple door rather than needing a tiny screwdriver, remove 4 screws, take it all apart. The sound is terrific.
