Best Vocal Delay Pedals – 2018

TC Helicon Voice Live Play - Vocal Delay Pedal

What are the best Vocal Delay Pedals in 2018?

Vocal effects pedals can be split into two categories, singular function (one core effect) and multi functional units (in-built with multiple vocal effects). There are not many singular function delay pedals, instead this article will discuss the best delay pedals, which will include both singular function and multi-function vocal effects pedals.

Delay is an effect in which a sound signal is repeated several milliseconds after the original signal. This effect is not to be confused with reverb, which is a slight delay, within less milliseconds, hence the audible sound, appears to be a continuation of the original sound, rather than a separate, repeated entity.

So, with that being said, lets get to the best vocal delay pedals in 2018!
