The HARP V2 DELAY is designed for harp players who prefer more presence in their tone. While the dry portion of the signal is identacle to the Harp Delay the echo is not as dark as the Harp Delay. The V2 Delay is designed to have more treble in the effect portion of the signal giving added presence. Like the Harp Delay it is not a tone sucking modded guitar delay but a tone enhancing harp delay. The dry portion of the signal passes through high value coupling capacitors assuring maximum bass response and with 4.7M termination on the input your high impedance crystal and CM elements will sound fatter than ever and the effect will make you sound almost as if two harps are playing giving you a much bigger sound stage. This delay offers a tonal response similar to the Dan Echo; BUT, with a bottom end that brings out the fat tone that we love.
The Harp V2 Delay has a broad range of effect; from the fat studio sound to slap-back to multi repeats that fade away and the Harp V2 Delay does all of this without increasing risk of feedback and without weakening your tone and it is great for voice too. The Harp V2 Delay is guaranteed to please even the most die-hard analog delay fan.
If you are having a difficult time choosing between the Harp V2 Delay and the Harp Delay then I recommend the Harp Delay which has a customer aproval rating of about 98%. The V2 Delay was created for the small percentage of my customers who wanted more presence (treble) in the echo.
The circuit is centered around a chip that has a low noise rating, < -90dbv, low distortion, < 0.5%thd, 44k digital processing and is capable of up to 300ms delay. The input is FET buffered for high impedance to provide proper loading for your favorite crystal or cm mic. The delay has a true bypass. The gain has been reduced to prevent solid state distortion and is balanced to have an overall gain of 1x so that the level is the same when bypassed. The warmth comes from the superior dry signal bass response and termination, distortion free performance and the filtering which reduces the highs more on every repeat providing the effect of a distancing echo.
The delay operates with a 9 volt battery or a 9vdc power adapter plus it has added filtering to prevent noise generated from improperly filtered power supplies and reverse polarity protection. The battery is switched off when an external power supply is used and the LED is on when the delay is in and is off when the delay is in bypass. The mic input jacks acts as the on-off switch.
Because delay pedals are hard on batteries with an estimated 10 to 12 hours of playing time it is recommended to purchase the ac adapter sold here to work with the Harp Delay.
