GEAR 407 • Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail Analog Delay

Here is a demo and review of the Vapor Trail Analog Delay from Seymour Duncan. There are a lot of analog delays on the market now, and this one really stands out with its unique features and easy usability. Features I like include: battery door on the back and delay modulation controls on the top – you don’t need to unscrew the back to get to either; bright blue led; flashing led inside clear delay knob. Overall, this has a nice clear sound – it’s a little brighter than MXR Carbon Copy, but still has analog warmth. In the demo, I try the clean sound first and then pair it with the Hoof Fuzz from Earthquaker devices.

This demo was recorded with a Fender MIM Strat (w/ Texas Special pickups, Ernie Ball Classic Rock-n-Roll nickel strings) and a Fender Champ II (Rivera, with Eminence Ragin’ Cajun speaker) amp miked with a Sennheiser e906 dynamic microphone.
