Music Gear Review: Nexi Industries Delay Pedal

The Nexi Delay (DLY-01) pedal is another design from Nexi's Vintage Analog Protection Squad and, like the other 13 Nexi pedals in the line, runs standalone like any 9-volt guitar pedal or plugs right into any of the eight slots on the Nexi Solution Pedal Board. Like all Nexi pedals, audio and power is also conveyed via its own DSub-9 connector mounted underneath.

Delay is a digital/analog pedal with a direct analog signal path and a Wet/Dry Level control. Other controls are: Time for delay times ranging from 35-ms to 598-ms, and Repeat or feedback for slap-back style delay effects. Delay has the same cool lighted rim front panel like all the Nexi pedals.

Delay is a quiet, "meat and potatoes" effect pedal--most guitar players have at least one if not more delay pedals on their pedal board. Delay is a great first time pedal for any guitar player.

All Nexi pedals have true bypass and are great value for their $105 MSRP each.
