JHS Pedals The Milkman Echo/Slap Delay Pedal
The right side of the pedal is the boost side. This boost is a discreet amplifier based circuit with tons of power and character. Simply set it low at unity gain for an always-on enhancer that fattens up and clarifies your tone, or turn more clockwise to push your tube amplifier into sweet natural overdrive. The left side of the pedal is the echo/slap delay circuit. This circuit is designed to emulate a hybrid of tape echo and analog BBD delay, and cover the tonal grounds between both. The controls are simple and it sounds good in every setting. The ÒSlapÓ knob is the amount of delay time. As you turn the knob up, you will get longer delay times. Keep in mind, this pedal is designed for shorter vintage slap-back delay times. The ÒMixÓ knob is the effect level. Full counter clockwise is all dry and full clockwise is full wet/effect. The ÒRepeatÓ knob controls how many echoes or repeats you get. The minimum is one and maximum is around 4.5 repeats. "Repeat" knob lets you fine tune how many delays you will get. Lastly is the ÒEQÓ knob. This control only affects the repeat delay signal so that you can perfectly adjust the brightness or darkness of your echo. When fully counter clockwise the repeats are at their darkest much like an old BBD analog delay. When fully clockwise the repeats are the brightest they will be with more grit, this is much like a classic tape delay machine. The longest echo/delay time on the Milkman is about 240ms.
The footswitching is our typical 2 in 1 arrangement where either effect can be used separately or together. The foot switch on the left, the switch will turn the delay on/off and the footswitch on the right will turn the boost on/off. The Milkman uses standard 9v DC Negative power only.
