More Information

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 fewer 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, let’s get to the top 3 vocal delay pedals in 2020!
