There is nothing like a great EFX pedal to enhance your sound.  Actually, let me restate that: there is nothing like a great EFX pedal to enhance your sound that can do it in both a subtle or drastic way.  The Skreddy Echo Pedal fulfills that requirement.

The Skreddy Echo is a lush, tape-like, saturated delay with adjustable warble.  It features great classic tape delay tones that give you that vintage sound.  It can also be tweaked to sound like a more modern sounding delay. 

It features a Repeat control, a Mix control, a Time control, and two Warble controls.  So let me tell you a little bit about these controls in greater detail.  The Repeat control allows you to pick the number of times the echo is repeated after the first echo.  This is a very useful feature that one should spend time with to dial it in properly.  The Mix control allows you to dial in the perfect amount of wet or dry signal.  This is a simple but amazing feature.  As I alluded to earlier, this pedal has the ability to be very subtle or very drastic.  This control instantly allows you to enter either territory.  The Time control sets the delay time from 50ms to 650ms.  Once again, you will need to dial this in to suit your needs.  The last two controls are the Warble intensity and the Warble rate.  These two controls give you the ability to create some really cool pitch shift effects. 

So let me tell you a little bit about the sounds and applications.  So far I have used the Skreddy Echo with a variety of different amps.  The first one I used it with was a Trainwreck Rocket.  Between the two of them I had the ultimate rhythmic clean chimey tone.  Next I tried it with my Bruno CT35 amp in combination with the Skreddy and an overdrive pedal.  I was able to get a beautiful sustaining liquid lead tone.  All in all I absolutely love this pedal.  It is very organic and not sterile sounding like many of the other delay/echo units on the market.  I look forward to using it for gigs and sessions for years to come.

I have included a short MP3 of some basic tracks featuring the Skreddy Echo Pedal.
