The Maestro Discoverer is a modern analogue delay pedal that
uses bucket brigade device technology to deliver classic, warm and
organic sounding delays. The intuitive 3-knob control setup gives
you complete control over the delay time, the amount of Sustain and
overall level of the effect. With a delay range of 20ms to 600ms,
the Discoverer can do anything from a Country-esque slap back to
lush, ambient soundscapes with plenty of feedback.
The Discover also boast built-in modulation, accessible via a
toggle switch, delivering an iconic tape-like "wow and flutter"
effect. This is a throwback to the highly revered Echoplex tape
delays units of the 1960s. By increasing the amount of modulation,
the Discoverer is capable of producing heavily modulated delay
effects for some authentically vintage tones. Two internally
mounted trim pots allow for adjustments to the rate and width of
the modulation effect.
Controls: Delay, Mix, Sustain; internal Modulation Rate and
Width trim pots
Internal Trim Pots: Two internal trim pots allow the user to
adjust the Rate (speed) and Width (sweep range) of the modulation
that operates when the Mode switch is in the up (MOD-ON) position.
Using a small screwdriver, turn clockwise to increase, counter
clockwise to decrease the modulation Rate and Width.
