I've spent the better part of today with my new RE-20 Space Echo. I'm not a boutique pedal kind of guy, and the longer I have my pedalboard, the more my stuff is turning into Boss, and Boss, and Boss. I have some nice stuff on there, like a Micro Pog and some other oddball stuff, but mostly run-of-the mill Boss pedals, an MXR Phase 90...you get the picture. For the last few years I've been running 2 Ibanez DE-7 delays on my board and have loved them, and recommended them many times here on TGP and to other players. The analog sound is warm, and the delay is clean and not tone-sucking. But the RE-20 has been calling to me so today I bought one. After hours of playing it, and playing with it, I have to say that it is the best delay / echo pedal I've ever used. I never felt the NEED for tap-tempo but after using it -- wow. I can use more delay/echo and since it matches the tempo of the song, it's less intrusive. Wish I'd tried tap-tempo years ago. The settings on the pedal itself vary widely, but it's got a fairly easy learning curve. I'm not a big reverb guy, but some of the reverb heavy settings are interesting, and the reverb can be dialed back to nothing. The echo-only settings are where I spent much of my time and probably will stay with them. I can't see a huge difference in the settings, but there is some and it's more pronounced (of course) the more echo you dial in. An endless array of sounds, but not so confusing that I couldn't find some simple slapback in about 20 seconds of playing with it. Again, it's a great pedal. Built like a tank, and visually pretty cool looking. I like the little LED tape simulation to show you how fast the delay is going, ditto for the tap-speed LED. Very handy. Oh, and the 'twist' function when you hold your foot on the tap tempo...very cool...spacey, even.... Just throwing this out there, in case anyone else is looking at them. I'll probably write again after using it again at next Saturday's gig... Have a good night.
