Best Vocal Delay Pedals – 2018

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!
