The headlines here are the addition of the MASH pressure-sensitive footswitch tech (as seen in the HOF 2), plus a Crystal Delay (using the polyphonic octave algorithm from the Sub ‘N’ Up).
Other new features include a trio of TonePrint slots, new “ultra-realistic” tape and analogue algorithms that self-oscillate, plus the ability to hook up a tap tempo switch via the stereo-in jack.
Elsewhere, the pedal packs everything from the original, including a raft of delay types, TonePrints, true bypass/trails operation, subdivision mini-toggle and audio tap tempo - although it should be noted that MASH needs to be disabled for the latter.
The Flashback 2 Delay is available from early July for $169.99. Head over to TC Electronic for more info.
The big question remains, however: will this rank on our buyer’s guide of the best delay pedals in the world today? We can’t wait to find out.
