In the world of guitar, delay is almost an art form. The TC-2290 changed the game of delay back in the 80’s. It was meant for recording studios, but was embraced by guitarists everywhere. With the Dynamic Delay, Lunastone has created a digital delay that captures the magic of the 2290 in a user-friendly and feature-rich pedal format.
The Dynamic Delay also adds another 2290 feature – Dynamic Delay! Inspired by one of the best features of the original 2290, it’s a one-button-controlled compressor on the delay side, so when you play very actively, the delay level is kept down, and when you play softer or stop, the tail of the delay rises to the surface. The attack, release, depth and threshold parameters have been delicately fine-tuned and merged into a one-button-control.
Dedicated Tap Tempo
A dedicated Tap Tempo switch is just the easiest and most intuitive way to set and adjust the tempo of the delayed notes on the go, so of course the Dynamic Delay also offers this feature.
Total Tail Control with two buffer modes
Delay is the type of effect where you may prefer to cut off the tail – or let it run out – when you punch out the pedal. And with Dynamic Delay, you get to choose between two different buffer modes to have control over the effect tail. In Buffered Bypass mode, the tail is allowed to continue and fade away gradually and naturally, whereas in True Bypass mode, the tail is cut the instant you switch the pedal off. In order to keep the size of the pedal down, but also avoid having to open the pedal and adjust a dip switch to change mode, we simply combined it with the TIME parameter knob that you can turn (to adjust time), as well as press to switch buffer mode.
