harp V2 delay



The Harp V2 Delay is designed for harp players who prefer more presence in their tone. As with the Harp Delay, the dry portion of the signal is left unchanged, but the Harp V2 Delay differs in that there is less filtering in the echo, producing a tone with more presence. Like the Harp Delay, it is not a tone-sucking modded guitar delay, but a tone-enhancing harp delay. The dry portion of the signal passes through high-value coupling capacitors, assuring maximum bass response. With a buffered FET input, your high-impedance crystal and CM elements will sound fatter than ever. The effect will make you sound almost as if two harps are playing, giving you a much bigger sound stage. This delay offers a tonal response similar to the Dan Echo and Boss, but with a bottom end that brings out the fat tone that we love.

The Harp V2 Delay has a broad range of effect. From the fat studio sound to slap-back to multiple repeats that fade away, the Harp V2 Delay does it all without increasing risk of feedback and without weakening your tone. Not to mention that it is great for voice too. The Harp V2 Delay is guaranteed to please even the most diehard analog delay fan.

If you are having a difficult time choosing between the Harp V2 Delay and the Harp Delay, then I recommend the Harp Delay, which has a customer approval rating of about 99%. The V2 Delay was created for the small percentage of my customers who did not want to lose presence (treble) in the echo. The V2 Delay is great not only for blues, but also for jazz, pop, and any other genre of music.

The circuit is centered around a chip that has a low noise rating at < -90dBV, low distortion, < 0.5% THD, 44k digital processing, and is capable of up to 300ms delay. The input is FET buffered for high impedance to provide proper loading for your favorite crystal or CM mic. The delay has a true bypass. The gain has been reduced to prevent solid state distortion and is balanced to have an overall gain of 1x so that the level is the same when bypassed. The warmth comes from the superior dry signal bass response and termination, distortion-free performance, and the filtering, which provides the effect of a distancing echo by reducing the highs more on every repeat.

The settings are very basic. For a reverb type effect, set the DELAY at 10:00, REPEATS at 3:00, and BLEND from 10:00 to 4:00. To acheive a slap-back, set the DELAY from 9:00 to 5:00, REPEATS at 7:00, and BLEND from 10:00 to 4:00. To achieve an echo effect, set the DELAY from 8:00 to 5:00, REPEATS from 9:00 to 5:00, and BLEND from 10:00 to 4:00. This will get you started, but ultimately whatever setting you like is the right setting.

The pedal can be powered with a 9V battery or an DC adapter. The DC adapter requirements are a regulated 9V DC with a minimum 100mA output and a 2.1mm x 5.5mm connector with a negative center. The battery is switched OFF when an external power adapter is used, and the "IN" jack acts as the pedal ON/OFF switch. Lone Wolf is now offering power adapters for US and EURO customers.

Because delay pedals are hard on batteries, with an estimated 10 to 12 hours of playing time, it is recommended to purchase the 9V power adapter, which is sold separately.

From Jon Gindick:
"To the King of Harp Effects-- You were right, both effects (Harp V2 Delay and Rocket 88 Old School Delay) are just fantastic and I like my sound better than ever. It enhances the sound without robbing it of its substance. Damn! This is really going to help me. Thank you so much, Randy! Jon"
NOTE: Jon is now enjoying acoustic guitar with his harp in a rack, I recommended the Harp V2 Delay to him along with the Rocket 88 Old School Delay for his guitar. Randy

"The Lone Wolf Delay pedals are really nice organic and warm sounding delay pedals that do not change the tone of your dry sound. I've got the V2 which I like using, especially with smaller amps."
-Thanks again, Carlos del Junco

"Iíve also used the V2 Harp Delay pedal very successfully, directly, through the stage PA at times when I didnít have time to set up my rig and also when Iím sometimes invited to sit in, without much or any advance warning. It makes such a difference, that Iíd rather take the few minutes to set up the pedal, than have to do without. The audience reaction is immediate every time. The audience knows when theyíre hearing what they like. They may not know all the details about what goes into generating that sound, that tone, but judging by their reaction, they definitely like what theyíre hearing and I know for a fact, that itís the V2 Harp Delay pedal thatís making most of the difference!

So take note, you serious, performing, harp players. This is not a test. This is the real thing. Iím now hearing the sound that I heard on my favorite blues recording and I know darn well that part of that sound, that tone, that effect, was added during the recording process in the recording studio, using fancy equipment to enhance the harpís sound & make it, not only stand out, but also sound ten times better.

So, itís really as simple as this: The V2 Harp Delay pedals make it possible to get that expensive recording studio sound enhancement during your live performances. With these, youíre in complete control of your sound without having to depend on anybody else, including the venueís sound engineer. These pedals are a small price to pay for all that Ė believe me!"

"The V2 delay works great a little more edge to the tone, just what I wanted. So thanks again for all great Harp stuff you make."
-Best reg, Mats
