Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail Deluxe

MSRP: (UK) £265 / (US) $327

The Vapor Trail Deluxe builds on the proud legacy of Seymour Duncan's original Vapor Trail analogue delay pedal by adding expanded control, new sonic modes and storable preset locations. These additions make the Vapor Trail Deluxe analogue delay one of a kind. Billy Campbell tells us more.

Expanding on the hugely popular Vapor Trail Delay, Seymour Duncan brings out the all-new Vapor Trail Deluxe Analog Delay pedal. The New Vapor Trail Deluxe builds on the original's lush and expressive analogue bucket-brigade style delay by adding a myriad of control options, new sonic modes, and storable preset locations.

Seymour Duncan has used 4 of the largest bucket brigade chips in production to achieve enhanced tone and delay time, with all of the warmth that comes from an analogue circuit. This technology enables the pedal to go from a subtle shimmer to fast rotary-style warble effects with ease. New enhanced control features include the tap tempo button with subdivisions, an expression pedal jack for added external control and delay tails on/off options for letting your repeats carry over if you choose. For enhanced routing flexibility, there is a Wet insert (send/return), top-mounted input and output jacks, and is 100% True Bypass for preserving signal integrity.

The Vapor Trail deluxe offers up to 1.2 seconds (Normal 37ms to 1.2s Normal / 6ms to 300ms Micro) of 100% analogue delay, with onboard tap-tempo functions offering the choice of 1/4 note, dotted 8th note, 8th note and 8th note triplet subdivisions. Harmonically rich and textured analogue modulation control can easily be adjusted with the rate and depth controls. There are three storable presets for quickly and easily access to your favourite delay settings, consisting of any time, rate or depth options, as well as the four new special modes.

Instantly access Micro Delay for extremely fast repeats, which authentically replicates double-tracked, slapback, and Leslie speaker style effects. Pitch Sequence, which introduces up and down octaves in 8 customizable rhythmic sequences. Pitch Bender, which puts dive-bomb and glissando effects only a tap away, and Runaway, which offers endless repeats and the sonic buildup of runaway delay.

The Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail Deluxe offers the total array of delay effects, from subtle echo to an endless textured, atmospheric soundscape, all with complete control. The pedal retails for $229 USD and will add a whole new depth to your effects arsenal. Stop by your local Seymour Duncan dealer and test it out!
