Among the Vapor Trail’s features is an Analog Delay that runs from 15 ms to 600 ms, and a Modulation section that can be used as a mild chorus; mixing the Modulation with Delay can result in great sounds.
Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail – Details
Seymour Duncan is a name that usually brings to mind high-quality pickups, but the Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail Analog Delay Pedal proves that they also do some other things very well. The Vapor Trail is an analog bucket-brigade delay that also incorporates a chorus-like modulation section. The three larger knobs cover the delay effect. The Mix control is the wet/dry mix, Repeat adjusts the number of echos, and Delay adjusts the delay time. The clear Delay control knob uses a blue LED as a visual time indicator. The pedal also features two smaller knobs, Rate and Depth, which control the modulation section. Rate controls the speed of the LFO, while Depth controls the amount of modulation that’s applied to the signal.
The Vapor Trail features a wet jack that can be used to connect an external expression pedal or as a 100% wet out signal. The pedal features 100% analog delay that runs from 15 ms to 600 ms. The Modulation section can be used as a mild chorus when the delay is turned all the way down. Mixing the modulation with delay can produce cosmic soundscapes, subtle tape wobble-like modulation, or an approximation of the chorus/vibrato textures of a Deluxe Memory Man
