The DOD Rubberneck Analog Delay is a pedal intended for electric guitar players. It can give you over a second of analog repeats, as well as controls for the delay’s timing, feedback, gain, tone, and more. For instance, concentric knobs allow you to manipulate the rate and depth of any modulations you’d like to introduce into the delay. A three-way toggle switch lets you choose how the tails will operate when you disengage the pedal. Will the tails automatically die, or fade off into the mix? The decision is yours with this front-facing switch.
Tap tempo is also offered via a dual-function footswitch, and you can choose among subdivisions with a three-position toggle switch, giving your repeats a triplet feel, if you so choose. The Tap Tempo footswitch also operates as a Regen control, which, when pressed down, will override the Repeats knob, giving you a feedback setting determined by the adjacent potentiometer. With this pot, you can achieve instantaneous modulations in feedback/repeats.
The pedal utilizes a true-bypass circuit path to preserve your dry signal’s integrity. However, the bypass switch also serves another function: It enables rubbernecking, an effect where the delay’s timing is stretched/compressed in time. You choose exactly how this timing changes with the Rubber Rate potentiometer, conveniently located next to the bypass footswitch.
The pedal sports an effects loop, so you can route external effects through its send/return jack, which accepts a 1/4″ TRS cable. If you’d like to use a compatible footswitch to control parameters, such as the FSX3, a 1/4″ jack is provided for this purpose. This pedal runs on a 9 VDC external power supply, which is available separately.
