Tech 21 Releases Boost D.L.A. with Tap Tempo

United States
English
Jan 7, 2010 — Tech 21’s popular Boost D.L.A. now features Tap Tempo, Triplets and Trails. It offers an abundance of truly useful features with easy-to-use, intuitive controls in an incredibly compact pedal --and it’s battery operable.

There’s an individual footswitch dedicated solely for the Tap Tempo function, to avoid confusion during your performance. It gives you the ability to set it, even when the unit is in bypass, which aids coordination with your drummer. Triplets works in conjunction with the Tap Tempo. Engaged, it shifts the timing so triplets play in sync with the actual tempo. Trails works in conjunction with bypass and allows the natural decay of the delay signal rather than cutting it off abruptly. The Feedback control has greater sensitivity and can be thrown into a state of self-oscillation. It’s great for gigs when the Klingons are in town. Other features include Boost, for up to 9dB of additional volume when it’s time for your solo. 100% analog Mix, Feedback, Tone and Level controls for warm, organic sounds-- and no latency. Mix control ranges from 100% dry to 100% wet. A single, continuously-variable Time control provides a full sweep of delay, up to 1,000 milliseconds. Flutter introduces modulation which adds a slight shimmering/chorus- like effect of a vintage tape echo.

User-tweakable “lo-fi” analog technology infuses degrees of warmth and life characteristic of vintage delays. This circuitry intentionally injects the inherent imperfections of vintage units, which is what makes them so seductive and nostalgic. The Boost D.L.A. controls are engineered so that you can explore and custom tailor such delay styles as digital, vintage tape and bucket brigade. Operable with 9V alkaline battery (not included) or optional DC power supply (Tech 21 Model #DC2). Manufactured in the U.S.A. MSRP: $260.00.
