T-Rex Duck Tail dynamic delay

Duck it and see

The Duck Tail offers what T-Rex calls its classic delay sound, plus a very tasty tape delay emulation, but it gets its name from the ducking delay mode that keeps the delay in the background for a less cluttered sound.


In Duck mode, you control the amount of delay you get via picking dynamics – a light attack gives you a full delay but you get less delay if you pick harder, while a sensitivity knob sets it up to suit your playing. This is beautifully implemented and lets you 'play' the delays, with the repeats clearly coming in during quiet passages.

MusicRadar Rating

Three types of delay in one box. Very playable Duck mode.
