The HardWire DL-8 Delay/Looper Pedal is Sweet

  • Jul 21, 2009
  • by
Some guitarists claim Digitech drop the ball when it comes to stompboxes. I don't think you could say that about this tough little cookie.

The HardWire Delay/Looper is a sweet - and rock solid - little pedal. (The Hardwire brand is the upmarket pedal range from Digitech.) You've got a range of delay types (yielding up to 8 seconds), 20 seconds of loop time (you can "layer up" the samples for simultaneous playback) and true bypass.

It's not all good though. The compact size means you can't really program and access multiple delay settings (for live use) like on the Line 6 DL-4 for example.

Here are a couple of decent reviews. The second one just focuses on the looper feature. Sweet!
