Everyone loves the warm, smooth, ambient vibe of a Bucket Brigade Device (BBD) analog delay pedal. The Vapor Trail gives you those classic tones but with a TRS insert jack that lets you process the repeats through additional effects to unlock your creativity and redefine what you can do with analog delay.

The Vapor Trail’s natural compression and treble-smoothing characteristics support rather than overpower the dry note… at least until you want to max out the controls to make ray-gun and spaceship noises. A flashing LED in the Delay knob gives you a visual readout of the tempo of your repeats (which range from 15ms to 600ms), and the Mix knob gives you everything from the gentlest hint of a repeat up to a 3dB boost.

The Vapor Trail also has modulation controls to add shimmer and movement to your echoed signal. Use the TRS insert jack to send the wet signal through any other pedal or effect, such as distortion flanger, chorus, envelope filter, or reverb – or use a volume pedal to vary the level of the delayed signal. You can even use it as a wet output to send just the repeats to a separate amp or signal chain.

Type of Circuitry: Analog Bucket Brigade Devices (BBDs) supported by modern low-noise analog electronics. No microprocessors or digital signal processors.

Bypass: True bypass

Delay Range: 15ms to 600ms. Actual delay time indicated by flash rate of illuminated delay time knob.

Dry Gain: 1dB fixed

Wet Gain: Adjustable from muted to +3dB. At the highest blend settings, the first echo is actually louder than the dry signal.

Repeat Control Range: One repeat to runaway repeats

Modulation Rate Range: 0.2Hz to 4 Hz

Modulation Depth Range: Zero to “over the top”

Auxiliary Functions: Wet channel insert loop, allows external effects to be applied to only the wet signal. Also serves as a wet-only output for wet/dry stereo or studio use.

Dry Frequency Response: <-1dB @ 10 Hz and 100 kHz

Dry Distortion: 0.002% at 250 Hz, 1V RMS output

Dry Noise Floor: -100dBv at output, 400Hz to 20kHz with input unplugged

Wet Noise Floor: -90dBV at output, 400Hz to 20kHz

Input Impedance: 1 Meg (active); open (bypassed)

Output Impedance: 1K ohm

Power: Internal 9V battery or external 9V-18V regulated power supply. Current Consumption: 11mA typical

Dimensions:Chassis size 2.61” x 4.90” x 1.45” (W x L x H) Weight: 0.8lb. without battery
