DOD announced the Rubberneck Analogue Delay back at the NAMM Show earlier this year. Although the pedal itself is not actually available to buy until late July or early August, we’ve just seen a tasty official demo video of what it can do!
Rubberneck Analogue Delay
With a lot of controls packed into the front panel this new, all analogue delay pedal looks as though it will be taking a lot of sales away from some of the more esoteric and boutique analogue delays currently on the market. I can see this being a viable alternative to AnalogMan and Free The Tone delay pedals, for example.
The official Digitech YouTube page uploaded this 11-minute plus overview video a few days ago and it gives a great indication of what you can achieve with the Rubberneck.
I’ve put a link to my original article above, but if you can’t find the time to check it out be sure to at least see watch the video below. I’ve added the Digitech’s overview of the Rubberneck Analog Delay control layout below, too.
The day after that video went live, Andy from Pro Guitar Shop added another preview of the Rubberneck, so I have included that one as well – because he makes everything sound good…
I think this is one release that should be on your radar for 2017 if you are looking for an all-singing, all-dancing analogue delay pedal for your rig. It also looks as though the official price has dropped from USD $429 (quoted back in January at NAMM) to $312.44, but this may be due to taxes not being included on the Digitech site…
Roll on the release date for what looks to be a cool-sounding delay pedal.
