Supro will be unveiling its new 1313 Delay at Winter NAMM. A premium, all-analogue echo pedal it uses a pair of new-production MN3005 ‘bucket brigade’ IC chips: ‘to deliver sounds ranging from 20ms slapback up to 600ms of buttery, vintage delay’, says UK and ROI distributor JHS. ‘Far superior in fidelity to the low-voltage MN32XX series chips more commonly used in modern stompboxes, the high-voltage MN3005 IC chips found in the Supro Delay provide sweeter echoes with dramatically increased headroom and dynamic range, due to their robust 15V power rails,’ JHS continues.
In addition to TIME, REPEATS and LEVEL knobs, the Supro Delay features a newly-designed FILTER control that provides both low-pass and band-pass functions on a single knob. This unique filter design provides both the dark and murky echoes associated with BBD analog delays as well as bright tape echo sounds that evolve over time with extended repeats.’Drawing inspiration from the golden era of analog pedals and recording to tape, the Supro Delay was designed by Howard Davis, master engineer behind the legendary late-1970’s EHX Deluxe Memory Man and the Pigtronix Echolution’.
The Supro Delay also offers an Expression input which can be assigned to control of the TIME, REPEATS or LEVEL knobs using a standard TRS expression pedal. The Supro Delay comes housed in a custom-made anodised aluminium chassis and features soft-touch, click-free, true bypass switching, as well as internally switchable Dry Kill and Trails functions.
