Tokai TDL-1 Delay


  • Delay Time
    This knob regulates the delay time. Turning it to the right produces a long delay, while turning it to the left produces a short delay.
  • Feedback
    This knob regulates the frequency of the delay repeat. Turning it to the right increases the frequency; when it is turned all the way to the left, it becomes a single delay.
  • Echo Level
    This knob regulates the balance between the delay sound and the direct sound. Turning it to the right emphasizes the delay sound, while turning it to the left emphasizes the direct sound.

Though compact, the TLD-1 has made possible a wide range of delay time settings, from 300msec to 20msec. In addition to a variety of delay effects, an excellent treble and a clear tone quality have been achieved. The newly-designed foot switch, with a long stroke, is also of particular appeal.
