Carl Martin Guitar Effects Red Repeat
GUITAR & BASS (UK) OCT. 2006 Red Repeat
The Carl Martin Red Repeat (£69) is red, and hurrah, it repeats. This Danish-made pedal really nails it with a diecast housing straight out of the 1950s and creamy chickenhead knobs. It’s a straight-in and straight-out pedal with a regular 9V supply slot and a metal footswitch. Switching on is silent and the pedal it self produces little or no noise – but, boy what a sound. The straight guitar sound remains completely intact and there’s no diminution of transients or dynamics. Plenty of the delays in this group have a lo-fi or low-pass filter setting but the amount is preset: the Tone control (LPF) on the Red Repeat allows you to set it anywhere you like. What’s more, the decay is spookily tape-like, and even with full treble you will hear echoes becoming grainier and more overdriven as they tail away. With delays ranging from short slapback to about 600mS you can get everything from retro to Edge territory – but the thing that really sets this one apart is that it never seems to interfere with what you’re playing.
Just go out and buy one before they realize it’s a `boutique´ pedal, stick a blue LED in it and double the price
