Digital delay & analog echo!
The Ibanez DE7 Delay/Echo Pedal from the Tone-Lok Series delivers both high-tech or vintage tape echo sounds at the throw of a switch. Capable of 30 ms to 2.6 seconds of delay time. Time, repeat, level, and a Range Switch allow for quick, precise control of your Ibanez DE7.
On the outside, Tone-Lok effects are equipped with the Ibanez exclusive "set and forget" Push-Lok rotary pots. Push the knobs down and your tone settings lock securely inside the case”no more lost settings or broken knobs.
On the inside, Tone-Lok pedals feature hi-fidelity components carefully tweaked with the constant input from a new generation of Ibanez players. And all this great stuff comes encased in cool looking, road-tough metal boxes at prices the working player can afford.

If you want a straight-up, good sounding delay with some usable options and good sound, the DE7 is awesome. The analog delay sound (echo) is really warm and funky, and can easily fool you into thinking you're using a much more expensive analog delay pedal. And the digital delay, while not the funbox of options that a Eventide or Line 6 pedal, is solid, good sounding, and totally usable - nothing you don't need. Another fun fact is that the echo sim can oscillate - spaceship sounds and weird stuff galore! Not even the more expensive digital delays have that. The case seems pretty burly too, though this thing sucks up batteries - power supply is definitely a good idea with this pedal. And while it's not true bypass, I don't notice it affecting my tone when it's off. I have more specialized and more feature-laden delays than the DE7, but for gigs, this pedal gets the job done with no fuss and could easily be your only delay pedal.
I have enjoyed playing/recording with this great pedal. It has a wide range of settings and is tough as nails! I also have the knob locking Ibanez tube screamer and both pedals are very reliable and perform GREAT! BOth are at a SUPER price too, especially if you look at similar pedals very long. Now, you can get cheaper ones, but not of this quality. They may be plastic, and/or sound iffy.. This is a great pedal! compares with higher priced pedals easily, from what I've heard.
I use it for harp mostly, but it also works great with guitar. If I'm going to a jam night and I don't want to tote an amp, I'll plug my mic into a Rocktron Micro Hush(to kill feedback) then into the Ibanez and then to the PA. It gives me a good sound just, like that. Wide range of delay/echo. I've beat the hell out of it for nearly 4 years now and it ain't never missed a beat. I've done a lot of recording with good results.
This is the best delay pedal I've ever owned! I've owned about four different stomp pedals/processors and this is by far the most amazing sounding delay. I've had it for about seven months so far and I've beat on it ever since I got it, and it still works like I just got it. Trust me, no delay pedal is better!
Hey- I bought the delay echo this past April and it has 1 of the best delay sounds I've heard. I mean 2.8 seconds at the most. That is a lot for the money it's selling for. The push down knobs are perfect. When my friends come over they mess around and always seem to fall on my equipment and I've had to replace a few pedals already. It's really hard so it is protected. It gets banged around a lot and it can almost stand anything. If you get a delay, get this one.
