The Black Tiger is a hy­brid de­lay pedal that com­bines an ana­logue sig­nal path with a dig­i­tal de­lay re­peater cir­cuit, the idea be­ing that you get dig­i­tal ac­cu­racy com­bined with ana­logue warmth. Stan­dard con­trols for de­lay time, mix­ing the wet sig­nal with the dry, and the num­ber of re­peats (feed­back) dial in your sound, which ranges from metal­lic re­verb through dou­bling and slap­back to about a half-sec­ond de­lay with vin­tagevoiced re­peats that get nice and grainy as they de­cay, melt­ing into the back­ground.

The se­cret weapon here is a Trails footswitch. While the by­pass footswitch cuts the de­lay dead, hit­ting Trails lets the re­peats con­tinue and die nat­u­rally while you play over them with the dry sound. You can play over a con­tin­u­ous sound if you set de­lay up for self-os­cil­la­tion – some­thing that’s aided by the Feed­back knob hav­ing a use­ful mark show­ing you the point at which this hap­pens.
