Before we talk about the Chase Bliss Audio Tonal Recall, let’s talk about analog delay. When guitarists think of legendary analog delay tones, pedals like the Boss DM-2, Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man, and Moog MF-104M come to mind. The most sought after versions of these classic delay pedals rely on the same component: Panasonic MN3005 Bucket Brigade delay chips. These chips have long been discontinued with costs for pedals containing authentic NOS MN3005 BBDs surging on the second-hand market. No one suspected that a worthy substitute would ever come along until a company called Xvive recreated the famed chip in collaboration with Howard Davis, creator of the EHX Deluxe Memory Man.

As Good As Old?

chase-bliss-audio-tonal-recall-review-best-analog-delay-pedal-02Electro Harmonix was quick to substitute the new Xvive MN3005 BBD chips in their current Memory Man analog delay pedals to the confusion of some guitarists who obsess over tonal details down to every component used. Some customers would have preferred that EHX made an official statement regarding their decision to use the Xvive chips, but at least the new Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man 1100TT has a different appearance from the NOS MN3005 unit in case you plan to search the second-hand market for a specific version of the pedal. Hopeful tone chasers may suggest that the Xvive chip rollout is evidence that EHX considers them as good as original Panasonic MN3005s. However, their price-focused advertising of the Memory Man lineup since the component change could imply that cost, not tone, may have been the primary reason for adopting the new chips.

While opinions on the new Xive MN3005 chips from boutique pedal builders has been largely positive, I’m aware of one company that wasn’t satisfied with the quality of these replacements when testing samples in their highly regarded analog delay pedals. Thus, a reissue of another famed MN3005 based pedal won’t be happening anytime soon.

While the jury isn’t unanimous on how these chips compare when retrofitted within pedals utilizing the original BBDs, we’re not necessarily here to relish in the old. We’re here to find out how an all-new design based around these chips measures up and if old made new again can be even better.

Mission To Mars

The Chase Bliss Audio Tonal Recall is the most noteworthy all-new delay pedal created from the ground up with reissue Xvive MN3005 BDD chips. Many modern guitarists would say that Chase Bliss Audio has drawn a line in the sand where they stand alone among pedal companies capable of taking archaic analog circuit design into new sonic frontiers. Captain Korte and his crew set out to boldly go where none have gone before in creating an analog delay pedal that would recapture the essence of what made those classic delay pedals so great, while offering an analog delay experience unlike any pedal previously released thanks to Tonal Recall’s complete digital control over its analog delay effects.

Disclaimer: Before we set out to discover if the Tonal Recall is the dream pedal guitarists wish it to be or an implanted false memory, I want to mention that I was among the few people who tested the unit before its release. Part of what sets Chase Bliss Audio apart from other builders is the openness of CBA founder & engineer, Joel Korte, to the opinions and criticism of his peers, friends, and customers. Having played some role in the creation process of this pedal through the feedback I provided, I was hesitant to review the Tonal Recall on Best Guitar Effects. But considering my experience with the pedal and knowledge of where the product started out and what it became, I’ve decided to communicate my uniquely informed perspective to our readers.

Sound & Performance:

Where to begin? Hmm, let’s talk tone. I could probably stop with the following statement. The Tonal Recall can be brighter or darker than a Boss DM-2 and is lower noise than a vintage EHX DMM. That might be enough for many of you to know if this pedal is right for you or lives up to the analog delays that came before. Still, it’s unfair to simply assess this pedal against the relics of yesterday as there are many nuances that make the Tonal Recall something very special.

The Tone knob itself is where a lot of ‘ole Tony’s mojo lies. Fully clockwise, it gives you its brightest delay sound. Now it’s still pretty dark, mind you, especially compared to digital delay standards. But Tonal Recall’s tone is brighter than your average analog delay while being able to get darker and warmer as you cut the knob back. It gets super dark at lower settings left of noon down towards 9 o’clock. There’s a lot of beautiful murky goodness to be found in that range. Sounds like someone dropped a bucket (brigade) into an oil can (delay). With the Tone any lower it rolls off so heavily that it’ll cut the repeats even if you’re using high Regen settings.

It’s worth further emphasizing the interplay between the Tone knob and Regen control. The way the Tone rolls off the high-end impacts the way the repeats dissipate. If you crank the Regen up towards the point just before it starts to self-oscillate, you’ll notice the different length of repeats you get when adjusting the Tone knob through its range. For the longest possible amount of delay repeats, set the Tone fully clockwise. If you need to cut it down a bit for a darker tone to suit your guitar or amp setup, you may want to consider increasing the Regen to compensate for any shortening of repeats.

From here let’s explore how the Regen affects the fidelity of the repeats. The higher the Regen setting, the more times the recorded guitar signal is copied/repeated by the BBD(s). On each repeat the sound loses some fidelity and distorts or breaks up a little. This is part of the tonal charm of analog chips, and the breakup character of various BBDs contributes to what makes certain chip models stand out. Of course, the tone inherent in the chips goes hand-in-hand with how the engineer implements them within a circuit.

Meet Tony & Tony

The pre-production Tonal Recall pedals pushed the aforementioned breakup characteristics to an extreme that yielded very distorted and lo-fi sounding delay repeats. The original Tonal Recall video from Knobs Demos exemplifies these characteristics well. Allow me to present Exhibit A for your viewing pleasure.

The original Tonal Recall video from Knobs Demos showcasing the pre-production Tonal Recall’s gritty, lo-fi repeats.

That video presents some interesting sounds that parallel my experience with the pre-production version of the pedal. However, that early iteration of the pedal was arguably not the DMM/DM-2 killer that many guitarists were expecting considering all the growing hype surrounding Chase Bliss Audio releasing an all-new MN3005 based analog delay pedal. While this version of the pedal did have a trailblazing attitude in taking analog delay into a novel, lo-fi zone, Mr. Korte decided just before the Tonal Recall’s imminent launch to release the crowd-pleasing pedal that guitarists were expecting.

Did CBA succeed? Does the Tonal Recall live up to the hype? And is it the best analog delay pedal money can buy?

One thing that was already apparent with the pre-production Tonal Recall is that it was an incredibly low-noise pedal, commendable considering that analog delays are usually significantly less quiet than digital delays. And if the repeats weren’t driven so hard into a chewy distortion, the low noise floor would further shine.

Here’s the new Knobs Demo of the Tonal Recall that portrays the sounds of the current production unit.

Tony part 2. Much cleaner, right?

The production version of Tonal Recall backed off on the amount of saturation present in the repeats, resulting in a much cleaner and smoother delay line. The repeats still degrade nicely as they dissipate which is more noticeable on longer delay times with high Regen settings. As the delays trail ever towards silence, you’ll sometimes hear a more percussive character creep in. I rather like this sound as it reminds me of the percussive “knock” of a dbx style compressor. Or maybe it’s the presence of the beating analog heart contained in all Chase Bliss Audio pedals. With shorter delays, you won’t notice it as much which is especially great for clean slapback delay echos, but it adds to the special feel of this pedal’s delays when you do hear it. Also, your picking dynamics can impact the way the delay line distorts, so experiment with guitar volume level and alternating between softly picking and digging in to vary the response.

Short & Long

chase-bliss-audio-tonal-recall-review-best-analog-delay-pedal-04Speaking of delay times, there are multiple modes to determine how long the delays can be. The Short (S) toggle-switch setting provides shorter delays from about 20ms to 275ms and uses 1 of the pedal’s 2 Xvive MN3005 BBD chips. This is what you’ll set it to when dialing in slapback echos or general shorter delays. If you shorten the Time to minimum you can even use the modulation for chorus tones or vibrato. (More on that in a moment.) Flipping over to the Long (L) position brings in the 2nd Xvive MN3005 chip and extends the available delay time to between 40ms and 550ms. This’ll give you those longer analog delays that, when combined with higher Regen, will linger behind your dry sound and emphasize the warm degradation characteristics of the dual MN3005 chips.

Best of “Both” Worlds?

I originally suspected the Both setting to be a tacked on feature because CBA engineer, Joel Korte, couldn’t think of anything better to include in the 3rd flip-switch position. Okay, maybe I still suspect that, and maybe it’s true. But as it turns out this mode utilizes both MN3005 chips to create a quick burst of 2 delays that sounds quite interesting. With longer time settings it gives you an Echorec style pattern of 3 delays. Minimum Regen just gives you those 2 extra delay hits. Boosting Regen carries on the trails with a rhythmic pulse. With the Time down to around 9-10 o’clock or lower the pedal creates a reverb-like dwell behind your playing because the delay times on both BBD chips are so short. Increase modulation and Regen to taste, and it gets really interesting. Roll down the Tone for some murky reverb.

Modulation

With a slight boost of the Rate & Depth, Tonal Recall will bring a little Warped Vinyl inspired modulation to the delay line. On short slapback echos, this’ll add a little tape-echo style movement. With longer delay times it’ll add some atmosphere to those lingering trails. With the Mix dialed up to around 3 o’clock, you’ll get a 50/50% wet/dry sound that works well with Short delays, minimum Time, and no Regen to bring in a new variation of the chorus flavor round in the Chase Bliss Audio Warped Vinyl MKII. The Tonal Recall’s dedicated Time knob lets you adjust the “voice” and phasing characteristics of the chorus by moving the placement of the wet signal against your dry tone. If you want a full-on vibrato, keep the Time at minimum and crank the Mix while using the Tone to brighten or darken your tone.

chase-bliss-audio-tonal-recall-review-best-analog-delay-pedal-05Dip-Switches

The Tonal Recall features the usual array of 16 dip-switches found on all Chase Bliss Audio pedals released so far. There’s a full spectrum of Ramping options that let you make the parameters either morph to a set position when activating the pedal or Bounce back and forth when that option is selected. This adds a lot of creative performance potential when you’re ready for a fresh breath of Martian air. Ramping Rate, Depth, Mix, & Regen are all good for subtle changes to your delay sounds (or dramatic if you push the Rate & Depth into upper extremes). Ramping Time gives you warped, analog pitch modulation effects while you play. You can also plug in an expression pedal and control any parameter set to Ramp.

Trails/Buffered vs True Bypass

Where you’d often find a Mode switch on some CBA pedals, the Tonal Recall lets you choose between a True Bypass mode and a Buffered mode with spillover delay trails. This comes down to a general matter of personal preference or what a song needs. If you want a buffer at the end of your signal chain, the Tonal Recall can be it. If you’re using short delays, you may opt for True Bypass. For extra long delays with high Regen, definitely consider the Trails & Buffer setting for letting that long delay ambience spillover when you bypass the pedal.

Hold (Self-Oscillation)

chase-bliss-audio-tonal-recall-review-best-analog-delay-pedal-06Ah, yes. For the first time a Chase Bliss Audio pedal gives you a unique dual function for the Tap foot-switch. Pressing and holding it down makes the Regen swell to its max setting for self-oscillation. When you release the foot-switch, your Regen returns to its previous setting. A really cool performance trick I found is to use the Momentary Bypass mode with Trails. Alternate between pressing and holding Bypass to activate the delay on certain notes/chords and also pressing and holding both Bypass & Tap foot-switches to activate the delay with self-oscillation. Release to let it spillover as it recedes. If you press Tap closely in succession or spaced farther apart, you can jump to faster delay times or slower delay times for some weird noise.

Divisions & S/L/B  (MIDI Presets)

All the expected division settings are here – quarter notes, dotted eights, triplets, and more. Try them in conjunction with the S/L/B settings for a huge range of different Tap Tempo delay timing. When exploring all the weird sounds this pedal can make, I noticed that switching between the available Tap Divisions causes the delay time to jump to the new settings while warping your delay pitch as it shifts. If you’re using MIDI preset switching, you can control the Tap Divisions with a MIDI CC message or create different presets with unique Tap Divisions (and S/L/B settings) and select between them to make the pedal jump to the new settings for weird pitch-modulated timing adjustment effects. Don’t mind me. I just enjoy discovering all the strange sounds a pedal can make, and Tonal Recall can get crazy.

MIDI

With a CBA modded Empress Midibox (or new CBA branded Midibox) you can control all knob parameters via MIDI. As per usual I got in deep with Ableton Live and journeyed down the rabbit hole of automating parameters via MIDI CC messages. You can always just stick to using a MIDI compatible effects switcher to select presets, a feature that makes the Tonal Recall a must have for MIDI-enabled pro pedalboards and rack rigs. The pedal also responds to MIDI Clock, so you can easily lock it in time with any clock source.

Tonal Recall X 2

I’ve always been a huge fan of linking two delay pedals in series. While it’s fun to use two digital delays or one analog and one digital delay together, the added noise of compounding two analog delay pedals often keeps me from that option. The quiet operation and deep tap division options make a dual Tonal Recall setup a huge temptation. If dual delays are an essential part of your sound, you can Tap sync 2 Tonal Recalls or set both pedals to the same MIDI Channel and make companion presets for both pedals so that you can always easily recall a host of dual delay settings. I’ve posted several clips of 2 Tonal Recall pedals in series on our Instagram. Here’s one.

Makes me wish I had two free hands.

While most guitarists don’t have the delay devotion (or budget) to spring for two Tonal Recalls, one is more than enough to compliment any other delay on your board or take over sole analog delay duties. The pedal’s compact size makes it especially tempting for a crowded pedalboard. As this review comes to a close, I find myself searching for any aspects of this pedal that I dislike or that could be significantly improved. Perhaps the repeats could be even longer without needing a second pedal to further extend the feedback. Maybe a triple or quadruple chip Tonal Recall MKII at some point could extend the possible delay time. Stereo analog delay? That might be pushing it. Here’s one more notable complaint: when using the Hold function, the self-oscillation could be compressed or limited more so as not to get too loud. I often use it with a limiter in the chain after the pedal or just press Hold in short bursts. I’d also bet that a few more little tweaks could be made for an even cleaner delay signal path with perhaps even less degradation, but the overall package still exceeds the quality of this pedal’s nearest competitor. See you at the party.

Overall-Rating-5.0

The Chase Bliss Audio Tonal Recall is a new breed of analog delay pedal that will appeal to fans of bucket brigade delay tones as well as any guitarist seeking out new delay sounds. It’s not that Tonal Recall offers any single feature that is revolutionary by itself (well, maybe presets in an analog delay and Ramping, of course). It’s the fact that this pedal does so many things very well that puts it into a class of its own. Between the digitally controlled functionality (MIDI, presets, Ramping, tap tempo, etc.), super low noise floor, and incredibly wide range of great tones, this pedal is a strong contender in a world of noisier analog delays and digitally recreated analog delay emulations. And if you consider yourself an analog delay aficionado, the Chase Bliss Audio Tonal Recall is an absolute must play. Now get your GAS to Mars.

That concludes our Chase Bliss Audio Tonal Recall review. Thanks for reading.

  1. Very good

  2. One of a kind that would be great on my board.

  3. This pedal looks amazing. So many knobs so many possibilities.

  4. A new standard in analog delay pedals! Brilliant design!

  5. Christophe R. Côté says:

    Such a huge pedal with tons of utilityl. To bad that chase bliss is so difficult to find in Canada. I would love to have it

  6. Looks like an amazing pedal!

  7. David Fisher says:

    The question for me is: Is this too much to control? I have always wanted to try a Chase Bliss pedal, Joel is a wonderful human being and I love the guy (never met him, just a great person). I’m always nervous as a bedroom hobbyist if these pedals are too much to handle. I want to try them now more than ever with the Tonal Recall and the Flanger that Joel released. Incredible pieces of gear, taking ingenuity to new levels!

  8. Josh Petermann says:

    Absolutely killer pedal! It would be an absolute privilege to own one of these incredible machines! I would love to see Chase Bliss give a reverb pedal a shot, he’d be one of the few that could make a reverb pedal that could take a stand against my BigSky!

  9. The Knobs demo is what first turned me onto the Tonal Recall, but it’s the dipswitches I’d be most excited to play with.

  10. I need this or I’ll cry!

  11. I would love to add this pedal to my board. I play live every week and would love to rep Chase Bliss and help push their products – especially since we hail from the same town. It’d be great to tweak around with for days and find some really spacey tones I could utilize. This pedal is a knob tweaker’s dream!

  12. Anton Syzko says:

    Advanced delay , works perfect with bass and loop station.

  13. Bam Rodriguez says:

    I’ve been trying tons of delay pedals lately, this one keeps coming back to my dreams.

    Anyone knows if when you change the tap while you play, the remaining sound changes pitch? I forgot to check and it’s kind of important for me.

  14. David Dalby says:

    Freakin’ awesome

  15. Seriously get anything that Knobs does a demo of. Do it.

  16. Manny Azinge says:

    I reached to turn off my alarm clock as I sat up from the bed. I swung out from under the covers, letting my legs hang off the edge. I was lost in thought. I had the same damn dream again. The one where I salute a roaring crowd just before exiting the stage of boldly lit arena – so bizarre, yet so real.

    I walked to the edge of my room and grabbed my ’64 Jazzmaster off the stand. I powered on my amp, and as the tubes were warming up, I looked up at my framed poster of Jimi Hendrix and let out a despondent sign. It was gonna be another ordinary Saturday morning as a bedroom guitarist, but I shook the thought and flicked the standby switch in the up position.

    I played through my usual set of repetitive licks and chord progressions, before getting bored and plugging in my pedal board. I cranked up my Blacks Arts Pharaoh fuzz and cut the reverb mix out on my EarthQuaker Devices Avalanche Run. Every knob on the delay band expect the time and repeats knob was set to 12 o’clock. It was in a perfect slap echo setup, and I churned out some raunchy blues inspired licks. Suddenly, I felt spacey. More spacey than usual that is, and there I was on stage at the arena again.

    Things were different this time. It was so vivid, almost as if I was there. I mean, I had to have been – I was! The crowd roared ferociously, “encore, encore, encore!” Just before exiting, I turned around and walked back center stage. They cheered my name wildly. Guitar in hand, I was ready to take the crowd into a realm super sonic surreality. As I looked down at my pedal board, a rush of adrenaline surged through me as lost memories overcame me with lucid excellence. There at my feet laid the lexicon that revealed the knowledge of my existence, once lost in the depths of the void. I was awakened, and I smiled as I read, ‘Chase Bliss Audio, Tonal Recall’.

  17. Andrew Scott Lingrell says:

    I think I may have tried a pre production version somehow? Or maybe was just hitting the preamp to hard? All I ever heard was overdriven saturated repeats. Even with very clean signal to the pedal… thoughts?

  18. This sounds interesting.

  19. Omar Garcia says:

    This would be a nice addition to any guitar rig… and with all the different modulation tweaks available this would be the perfect delay to pair up with an analog synthesizer. The possibilities are endless with this machine. I absolutely MUST have this pedal!!!

  20. When I was a kid, my neighbor Tommy Knopfendoffer was always trying to “one up” me. I’m not sure why, I mean we were friends and hung out a lot… but he was always trying show me up.

    I’d get a small bag of chips from the Frito Lay variety pack in my lunch box, he’d have a bag of O’Boises or Tato Skins twice as big. I’d get a new backpack to start off the school year, he’d have the best JanSport (with leather bottom) money could buy. I had a Colecovision my dad found at a garage sale, Tommy had the Nintendo Entertainment System, the one with the gun and power pad for track and field games.

    I remember one Saturday morning we were hanging out eating Cookie Crisp and watching NBA Inside Stuff when we saw a commercial for Reebok Pumps. These shoes were amazing! We both wanted them of course, but a BMX ride to the Footlocker would reveal a hefty price tag. I begged my parents, but they were not into the idea of buying me new kicks outside of a Payless ShoeSource. Plus it was the middle of the school year, they had already bought my “new” pair of shoes the prior August. My mom reminded me that I still had some Christmas money saved that I had yet to spend and that I would be getting more money soon for my birthday from my Grandparents. I did the math and figured I might have a shot at actually owning Reebok Pumps. I waited and waited for my birthday. Finally, the day arrived and I was off to my birthday party at Showbiz Pizza. Both of my Grandmas were there and I could see a few cards on the “presents” table as my friends rolled in. And then I saw them… a pair of black Reebok Pumps with the basketball logo on the tongue… but, of course, these beauty’s were on the feet of Tommy Knopfendoffer as he walked over to my party. I couldn’t believe it, one-upped again!

    Fast-forward to now, my wife and I were waiting in line for a midnight release of Rogue One on opening night a few weeks ago, when I saw Tommy. He had just come out of an even earlier Star Wars showing from Thursday night when we got to talking. Turns out he plays guitar too and recently got a Chase Bliss Tonal Recall for his pedalboard, he highly recommends it. So as you can see… I really need the Tonal Recal #1, not only for all of the great reasons in your fantastic review, not only to use on the worship team at church, but also for spite.

    P.S.
    I did end up putting my Christmas and Birthday cash together and purchased my own pair of Reebok Pumps. They lasted about two weeks before one of the Pumps stopped working.

  21. The possibilities are endless. What i would give to play around with this pedal….

  22. Sam Thomas says:

    I tried this at my local shop the other day and knew I had to have it. You can create any sound with it, it has everything you could want in an analog delay. The swiss army knife of analog delays.

  23. Great review. This pedal looks amazing!

  24. Trevor Owen says:

    Looks like the perfect pedal for 2017. Cheers!!

  25. Douglas Levin says:

    Just a masterful accomplishment!!

  26. Probably one of the most inventive pedals from one of he best dudes. Best peda company.

  27. Looks like a solid build. I would love to get my hands on one.

  28. If I pick this up, I’d have four delay pedals. I’d like to see this and El Capistan in action together.

  29. Joash Sathyadass says:

    What are the chances of me being picked… I hope its more than what I think it is

  30. This is something my brother wants so badly!!

  31. I would use the Tonal recall for making unusual wobbly delay sounds and use the bounce dip switch for fluctuations in the delay and modulation! Would love one of these.

  32. I have wanted one of these since the moment I knew it was announced. Still want one!

  33. Looks like a great pedal! Hope to be the lucky one!
    Happy new music-year everyone!

  34. Santa in New Years eve please!

  35. Joseph Bugg says:

    Dig it! Thanks for the great review

  36. Needs one

  37. Russell Watts says:

    I must have it.

  38. Nathan Guzman says:

    Want, need, love

  39. Mike Moger says:

    Had a chance to test this pedal out at Russo Music in Asbury Park, NJ recently and it is awesome. I already have tons of of delay options, but this one might be the best.

  40. This pedal is amazing! I really want to play around with the ramps feature!

  41. need

  42. need

  43. Luke Palmer says:

    Great revyeew!

  44. Great review! makes me want to win that contest even more!

    -Micah

  45. The best delay on the market, great review.

  46. Great review, would love to try it with my moog and midi clock function..

  47. Ben gilchrist says:

    Amazing review, this pedal looks unbelievable. Hope I win the competiton!

  48. Awesome review Chad bliss put out great stuff with so many intricate little touches. Would be stoked to add this one to my board.

  49. Charlie Anderson says:

    Such a thorough review, I was looking at the tonal recall as an alternative/compliment to my flashback x4 and I can honestly say this has helped me thoroughly in my research!

  50. Brandon LaPointe says:

    So after a while of looking into this pedal now, my god. This pedal is a work of art. Loving the super vintage tones it can create. Crossing my fingers and toes for this giveaway but either way it will most definitely end up on my board someday. Or i’ll just put a sticker on a dd7 like on your instagram lol Best of luck everyone!

  51. This pedals dank, people use it, like a lot of people, I won’t say who because so many people use it! Just get it this is some DANK stuff!!!

  52. Chad Bartel says:

    Tonal Recall is a game changer. Upped the ante for pedalboard delays.

  53. Paul Stewart says:

    A good friend of mine just today picked up a Tonal Recall to be best pals with his Warped Vinyl. I’ve never seen two pedals happier together in my life. My Warped Vinyl sits on my board lost among overdrives and fuzzes.. alone.. no one to talk to, no one to relate to, no one to just be there and listen to what it has to say, no one to reassure them that everything is going to be okay.

    My Warped Vinyl needs the Tonal Recall’s help. I need the Tonal Recall’s help. It isn’t the help we deserve, but it is certainly the help that is desperately needed. Be the change you want to see in the world. All you need is love. Rome wasn’t built in a day. If you can’t stand the heat – follow your dreams.

    Thank you Chase Bliss. Thank you BestGuitarEffects.com. Thank you Guy Fieri. I am one with the force, and the force is with me.

  54. I can see it now; when I have the Chase Bliss Tonal Recall fastened proudly to my pedalboard it will be as if I am transported to another, distant place. No longer will I be standing on my familiar rug that ties the room together, admiring the glimmering lights twinkling from my pedalboard. I will be dwarfed amongst the strong pines on a freshly terraformed Mars, glistening with a morning dew. Deep green moss gently creeping along the planet floor contrasts sharply with the native red dirt. A vibrant pink sky washes across the horizon as the day gives way to a cold, Martian night. With my wrist straight, a down stroke comes from a movement in the elbow and great thrum thrusts me into the air; I ascend. I can feel the gravity beginning to tug at my momentum and as I reach my terminal altitude, another thrum, weaker than the last pushes me higher. The thin Martian atmosphere is no match for my velocity. My fingertips tingle. I can feel a small, light blue, scored aluminum knob turning counter-clockwise and increasing the speed. Suddenly, delayed pulses envelop my body like fading memories of gamma wind hoisting me even higher. The flat horizon begins to curve as I witness the red expanse slowly morph into a planetary body and I am plunged into the black drink of space. I am moving fast, very fast; but the feeling goes unnoticed. Ares has me know and I remain orbital, free to experience the atmospheric emptiness and play with the colorful knobs and switches at my fingertips.
    Just as Ares has me, I have the Tonal Recall and I am free to create endless sonic madness with its power achievable at the push of a button. With this great power comes my realization that I have the responsibility to finally pull the trigger on Midi. My third eye opens for the first time as my pedals evolve into intelligence and synchronization brought on by the Midi. Skynet prowls through the circuits of my Midi connected pedals, though it will not attempt to rebel against its master. I have seduced it with my notions of total sonic control. I am the dictator and the pedal board is my subject.
    Satisfied, I sit upon my Toan-encrusted throne and await Chase Bliss’s next release; dreaming, wanting, wishing that it will be a reverb; honest with its analog heart, sharpened by a digital brain.

  55. I actually went to my local guitar store today and told them I was looking for a analog delay with tap tempo. They showed me a few pedals but nothing compared to the Tonal Recall. Compact size, digitally controlled, tap tempo, external dip switches, the whole nine yards. It’s a game changer for sure. In a world where digital delay is slowly taking over the Tonal Recall stands out and changes the way people think about analog delay.

  56. I saw one of my favorite bands play a few weeks back and they crushed it with this pedal, used it to create some really crazy chorusy delay-wash-spaceship-craziness. One of the coolest pedals I’ve ever heard live.

  57. Matt Bushyeager says:

    Thanks for this awesome review! This pedal has been on my must-have list ever since CBA first announced it. The idea of having the warmth of an analog delay, with tap and 122 PRESETS ! (via MIDI) is too good to be true. And as of right now, it is too good to be true. It is only a dream of what could be. Hopefully this give away goes in my direction and then this dream will become reality !

  59. Andrew Garrison says:

    Brilliant pedal. I’d give a kidney for one of these. And from a Minnesota boy, to boot. Can’t go wrong.

  60. Jacob Lightford says:

    I’ve never owned an analog delay before and owning this would be a big step closer to completing my board (not that you’re ever really done). I’ve heard countless positive reviews on it, and I’ve had my eye on this pedal for a long time ever since I tried one from a friend. I will probably buy one soon regardless, but I’d be thrilled to win it in this months giveaway!

  61. So how does this pedal compare, tonally, with an original MN3005 delay like say an AD80?

  62. About 4 months ago I flew across the country to see my favorite drone metal band, Miley Cyrus, perform. Things were going great that night. I met an amazing woman who was also waiting in the embarrassingly long line to get into the venue, had the best poop earlier that day, AND, I finally got this piece of apple that was wedged between my canine tooth and the tooth next to it for what felt like two weeks! You could say it was the best day ever.

    As Miley entered the stage wearing nothing but a gold loin cloth and chuck taylors I see a mysterious man standing on the side of the stage. Three songs in he rushed the stage and grab her Chase Bliss Audio Tonal Recall (which her mic was plugged into) and ran out of the emergency exit near the stage before any of the Hells Angels security guards caught him. Attempting to continue the show, she couldn’t do it without her Chase Bliss Audio Tonal Recall. “sorry everyone, Miley can’t sing without her Tonal Recall”. What a bummer to my day. She cancelled the rest of her 4 month long tour, which I had tickets to see her every-night, unless someone returned her special Chase Bliss Audio Tonal Recall serial #00001.

    So you see, I’m entering this contest so I could win the Tonal Recall and return it to Miley Cyrus so she can continue touring with her gold sequin loin cloth and inspire everyone with the amazing warm analog richness of what is probably the best analog delay on the market today.

    Thank you!

  63. It’s impressive how Chase Bliss was able to pack so many features and innovations in such tiny footprint without sacrificing quality. Definitely a must for any pedaboard willing to make an impact!

  64. This pedal is essential and important.

  65. Chris buscemi says:

    Woo! Can’t wait to play!

  66. Raul Trujillo says:

    Bucket Brigade will always be the way to go with delay pedals. This guy sounds killer, no matter how you manage to set it. Now, let’s pair it with a good, wet reverb and see what you can do with a tad of self oscillation!

  67. Alexander Gustaw says:

    I’ve wanted one since I saw Knobs demo it. What would I do with it? Whatever it wants

  68. Albert Guevara says:

    This would be a dream come true for me. I recently got my hands in a Twin Peaks tremolo and the potential combination of it with a Tonal Recall would literally open flood gates of new sounds and ideas. I’m a huge delay junkie. I currently have a time factory and a timeline on my board but based on all the videos I’ve been reviewing, the Tonal recall is ambient constructor’s holy grail of all tools. I have my fingers crossed I win and look forward to sharing all of the sounds that come spilling out of me if I do.

    Thank you!

  69. Josh perkins says:

    I use multiple delay pedals in my signal chain to color thicken and augment my playing. with this pedal now available i will have to assign my dd7s (the delays i currently use) more permanent simple roles. for instance:min feedback &short delay setting for foot ‘punches’ to punctuate and elongate sustain amd swell at the end of phrases . Or just a dotted 1/8 setting and now explore some of the amazing functionality the tonal recall has. Im very excited to get goimg with one of these pedals. Thanks for making this sort of stuff available .

  70. Love the demos of the chase bliss pedals. Very classy

  71. jim DeArmond says:

    I want to win this and be the center piece of my board!; fantastic tone monster

  72. Josh Petermann says:

    Absolutely incredible pedal, as typical from Chase Bliss. Man alive it would be an absolute privilege to own one of these fantastic machines! Also would love to see their spin on a reverb pedal. Could possibly give the BigSky a run for its money!

  73. Thomas Flores says:

    I love delays, i love modulation, i love total recall, and i would love to make some weird noises with the Tonal Recall. I would sure love to hear it running through my pitch shifter. Sadly i can’t even kind of afford it, and therefore would have to win this giveaway in order to ever be able to own one. I also loved Joel’s interview on the Tone Mob podcast. Super nice guy.

  74. Joshua Flores says:

    I’ve wanted this pedal since I’ve seen the Knobs pedal. It’s on the top of my list for dream pedals.

  75. I can’t wait to explore all the different sonic wavelengths with this thing!

  76. If I won this… every night before bed I would play some sweet simple lines through my looper and set them on repeat as I drifted off into the most peaceful and euphoric slumber…

  77. My favorite delay pedal these days. I love this thing!

  78. Cole Friesen says:

    Ahh, i love chase bliss so much! Had a chance to use the gravitas and the Ramp function is SOOOO cool. Can’t even imagine how cool the ramp function would be with a delay pedal!

  79. This is the most thorough and useful review of any pedal that I’ve read in a long time! It seems that the tonal recall has taken analog delay to a new level in pretty much every way. The midi control and tonal flexibility would help a ton in my rig using a master controller for presets…definitely a step above my tried and true carbon copy…true control while still achieving all of the classic analog delay oscillation and more (something the Timeline can’t replicate). Thanks for a great review/rundown!

  80. Levi Herron says:

    This is by far the coolest and most useful delay I’ve seen. If the price wasn’t as high as it is I’d have two. I play a variety of different kinds of music so it’d be perfect for subtle delays or twisted psychedelic madness. Chase bliss is one of my favorite brands I’ve come across, tons of versatility. Can’t wait to see what they have in store for the future.

  81. Steven Cipriano says:

    I love this pedal. There is no more natural sounding delay available. Virtually no noise added. My go to. Unfortunately mine was taken at a gig a few weeks back. Will be replacing asap. Get one!

  82. I’m a bassist and do a lot of ambient sounscape work and this pedal alone would take that approach to the next level, I’m certain! Very informative review, thanks!

  83. I can only dream of how amazing Tonal Recall would be coupled with El Capistan. Dual delay dreams! Winning this quality pedal would be an amazing way to finish/start 2016/17!

  84. Just leaving my comment here for the giveaway. Truly the only analog delay I’ll ever need!

  85. I want!

  86. Amazing delay!

  87. Joseph Poe says:

    Wow, what a crazy pedal, so many options. Thanks for the review, you guys rock!

  88. Send it and I’ll give it a spin.

  89. The Warped Vinyl MK II is my favorite pedal I have ever owned. This guy makes the most ridiculously flexible, inspiring, and musical pedals. Someday I will buy them all but it’d be nice to get one for free. Can’t wait to see what Joel comes up with next.

  90. Guillermo Alvarez says:

    When I discovered this pedal it became by an instant my most desired pedal ever! I feel that getting one of these would be the end for my GAS, like heck to all, thats the end of it!

  91. I am a Delay junkie, this covers it all, BB, Mod, Tap. What more could ya want?

  92. Awesome products and service from a well directed company!

  93. Andrew Skelton says:

    Super innovative and versatile! Hope I win the giveaway!

  94. Mohammed Ashraf says:

    Honestly thought this pedal was way overpriced before hearing it but after the first video I saw of it… goddamn it seems like it’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a delay! *fingers and toes crossed to win this*

  95. Great pedal.

    Happy new year to everyone!

  96. Wow! This is so cool this is the best gift for my brother! He loves this site!

  97. The new XVIVE BBD chips are quite an excellent simulacrum of the original Panasonic, and this new delay sounds lush!

  98. Tim Johnson says:

    I am really excited to check a Tonal Recall out!

  99. Rodger Reed says:

    Great name, great sound, great pedal! And you gotta love all those knobs. Sign me up!

  100. i never used any of these pedals…sooooooo

  101. This would be a great addition for my pedal board! great way to start the New Years!

  102. John Nikas says:

    Wish Santa listen to my thoughts!!! Happy new year everyone!

  103. Alberto Almansa Rueda says:

    Wonderful pedal and sounds

  104. Bruce Williams says:

    This tonal recall guitar fx pedal looks amazing!

  105. The big-daddy original of the big-daddy originals! Oh yes!

  106. Derek Sasaki says:

    Looks like a winner pedal ! Would love to win this awesome pedal !

  107. Fred St Clair says:

    This would be perfect on my board.

  108. Thomas DiSanto says:

    Dying to add this spectacular unit to my rig!!!

  109. I know a girl who’s a sucker for pedals so if I win this I thought I’d give it to her so she can use it for her new snow songs :-)

    She could play them in the White Lodge:

    https://twitter.com/SugarBuzz80

    Now that I would like to hear!

  110. Paul ferguson says:

    The choice of colors on this pedal are awesome, looks very classy

  111. Gary Plaus says:

    Nice! I like it!

  112. Peter Bennett says:

    Great pedal would love to own one a fine pedaL

  113. Yes Please, Chase Bliss make some of the finest pedals.

  114. Doug Kline says:

    As a guitarist in my sixties I’ll be happy to try a peddle I don’t own yet.Send when ready, I’ll be waiting.

  115. Yonathan Randyanto says:

    I really want to try this out. I think it will be staying in my board :) but yeah the price tag is the only thing between me and my intention to chase bliss >.<

  116. Evan Adamson says:

    Nnnnggggg…splooter…….!!!! Thats it…..that’s all…..nuff said…….gimme…..please…..

  117. Nitsan Gur says:

    Absolutely irrational dream. seriosly!
    The endless daydreaming tha could be established
    with this thing.
    I mean…

  118. George berry says:

    I really hope that in a few days I will be that lucky someone who gets the tonal recall-haul. This thing (amongst all of CBAs line up) is just a different league. Amazing review as usual from BGE.

  119. If there is a pedal that would magically allow you to slip into an alternate dimension, Tonal Recall is it. It allows you to create tones reminiscent of traveling through some beautiful lo-fi sonic wormhole- someplace we’d all like to escape to. The only snag with using a pedal that sounds so lovely is that if you give me one I may never want to use anything else!

  120. Paulo Barone says:

    I will spend hours finding out how it works, and what it does. And will lend to my son from time to time.we will play together and have one of this simple moments of joy.

  121. Too complicated not to have it!

  122. Zachary Weston says:

    The best delay pedal on the market imo!!! Would give an arm and a leg for it!!

  123. This pedal is pure psychedelic bliss! Such amazing tones this is unlike any other delay pedal! The tone this gives is exactly what I need to manifest the sound in my mind into reality!

    Sweet cosmic nostalgia honey connecting stars to souls to blades of grass to specks of dirt to single called organisms to neutrons to the pure white light. Help a sister out. :)

  124. Jacob Erickson says:

    Every pedal of Chase Bliss’ that I’ve tried has sounded excellent. I’d love to try this one.

  125. Fantastic review again. Always checking out your reviews they are always thorough and informative. Definitely want to try this one out some day.
    Cheers, Dave

  126. Ethan Roggow says:

    this pedal looks really cool, but would look way cooler on my pedalboard. (let me win the giveaway please!)

  127. Eli Boretsky says:

    I would use this for rhythm guitar and have someone cut some paths in it with their lead. Also DUB.

  128. Francis L. says:

    Man i’d like to at least try one! So hard to find one where I’m from.

  129. Yea boi!

  130. I’m broke! All of my Christmas money is going to hospital bills… Hopefully you pick me I was intending to buy a delay with said money.

  131. Dr. Phibes says:

    I MUST HAVE THIS PEDAL, AT ANY COST

  132. rick weesel says:

    cool beans !!

  133. Kevin L. Gibbs says:

    Thanks for the opportunity! I would make beautiful Gilmore-esq sounds!

  134. I run a small label in Cape Town called Rootspring music. (www.rootspring.co.za) I record a great variety of music and inevitably need to overdub various guitar tracks myself. As a very NON keyboard player I rely on a great variation in guitar textures and tones. Specially analogue washes….apart from the fact I struggle with keyboard I usually enjoy guitar tones more…..but I NEED that Chase bliss audio tonal recall pedal as my tones are getting too samey. Its expensive in “SA Rand” terms. I agree….your most exciting giveaway yet!

  135. i wants this so bads

  136. Quite a wealth of control over the signal, & what amazing effects this pedal creates. A must-have! As in ‘I must have’.

  137. Oh man this gotta be the best analog delay stompbox in the world… Will definitely be the icing on cake when I add it to my pedalboard, right there, next to the blue reverberations machine

    https://s27.postimg.org/uksnza35v/PEDA2.png

    Thanks for the reviews guys, helped me to build my board =)

  138. Samuel Madden says:

    My bass teacher has one, it continues to blow my mind how organic is sounds withh all the midi functionality.

  139. Sounds great!

  140. Brian Kretschman says:

    Sounds like fun! Nice ear candy!

  141. Kobediah Miller says:

    I want one!

  142. Justin Wilson says:

    This deserves 5 stars through and through, and that goes for anything Chase Bliss puts out! I’ve wanted to demo one of these the moment I knew CB had a delay on the market. And who Joel is and what he has overcome and accomplished makes their gear more than just professional equipment. They hold an inspiring story.

  143. Bing bang boom.

  144. Can’t wait to try this one out! The many tonal options on this bad boy have me pumped. Been searching endless delay pedals for that one that can get that slight trailing edge with some darkness AND sizzle…. upon reading reviews this may be the ticket. :) Plus with expression output and the tap/swell option this baby packs a TON of tonal options into such a small tough box. And we haven’t even got into the dip switches!!! I can already see it replacing my TC Flashback Triple delay.

  145. Lots of features on a small footprint. Love it!

  146. John Nickell says:

    Would look great on my board

  147. John Nickell says:

    Would look great on my biard

  148. Jose Ceravolo says:

    Great pedal, you can get lost in this…
    Nice review!

  149. Andrew Rigsby says:

    Gotta have it! Been looking for something to replace my carbon copy…

  150. When this pedal by chase bliss audio was released my need for any other pedal went out the window.
    I am a nerd for sci-fi books, movies, and sounds.
    A massive part of my last years art studio practice has been around creating sounds and composing pieces based off sci-fi ideals and themes found in classics such as Logans Run, Zardoz(not a book), Blade Runner, Farhrenheit 451.

    https://soundcloud.com/user-k-568535752/31-5-sanc

    This pedal is ideal in my mind to further this process I’ve been working on musically.
    It has all I need in one wonderfully made pedal.

    I’d own already it if I could.

  151. All of the chase bliss pedals are so sweet! I love how tweak-able they are!

  152. Josh wambeke says:

    Me want

  153. From infinite space sounds to dub slaps this would make my year

  154. Encarna Rey says:

    It would be a dream to start the year with this pedal and get the myor party on my guitar, thank you very much, merry christmas.

  155. I would love this

  156. Awesome Pedal!

  157. Kenny Sheldon says:

    I love this site, and I love that I might win a Chase Bliss Tonal Recall!! That would rule, and make a fantastic PERMANENT addition to my studio AND live rigs! :-)

  158. Steven Perry says:

    Such a great pedal with so many knobs to turn. Would love to have one!

  159. David McDermott says:

    I’m sure I’m not worthy, but man, I’d love to have one of those! I wouldn’t leave the house for a week!

  160. Gabriel Hasser says:

    Sounds super unique. Do want.

  161. Would be such a good mate for my Les Paul and my Bogner. True friendship in sight :P

  162. Jose Antonio Aybar says:

    Awesome pedal , Is like you have more than one pedal but in one pedal , I don’t have the money for buy it but someday I will get one ! Amazing sound and full diversity of options

  163. Don Paterson says:

    oh man i’d better start saving.

  164. If I won this I’d never put my guitar down. How such a small box can open up such a world of trippy modulated madness is an absolute miracle.

  165. Oh yeah, love those BBD type things!

  166. Looks like a really nice pedal. Would love to get my hands on one to have a play.

  167. W……ow

  168. If I had this pedal I’d say I Caught Bliss.

    Grzl!

  169. Laurent de couesbouc says:

    That’ s a fine delay…

  170. Arend Raifsnider says:

    I tested one of these recently. It was a bit intimidating but there’s a lot of potential there!

  171. I’ve been drooling over this pedal for months. The old warble sounds that this thing can produce is amazing. Can’t wait to get one.

  172. Alex Thornton says:

    The other half of my creative mind bought one of these as his first real man’s pedal, and wow it can do anything and everything delay! I would figuratively kill for one! Imagine the power of using two!

  173. Andreas Skeidsvoll says:

    Smooth. :)

  174. Brent Baron says:

    this pedal and company are in a entire class or world of their own. chase Bliss Audio make dream pedals and i only pray one day to be able to add one to my bucket list of effects.

  175. Oh lord. Add it to my list of NEEDS. Great review!

  176. Asher Watson says:

    Droooooools!!

  177. I don’t know what to say about this thing. It’s next on my list. It’s everything that I want in a delay pedal. Chase Bliss is doing some ridiculous things, and Tonal Recall is top of the list for me.

  178. Looks like a fantastic pedal!

  179. I want one!

  180. Amazing pedal, absolutely love the analogue heart digital control philosophy, brilliant!

  181. What a delay! Can’t wait to have one of my own!! :)

  182. Hunter Borowick says:

    I finally got to play one of these the other day and I fell in love with it! Hopefully I can win one. Great review also!

  183. Analog delay is the best!

  184. Bob 'Skippy' Blechinger says:

    Wow. Just wow.

    It’s interesting to see how much retro effects – and analog delays are VERY much in line with that mindset – have returned with a vengeance, even in the digital age, where almost everything can be modeled PRECISELY!

    The MN3005 was, of course, THE bucket-brigade delay chip back 40 years ago (The original Electro-Harmonix Memory Man debuted in 1976), but with time, as ICs tend to do, it was dropped in favor of ‘newer and better’ chips. It’ remained the ‘Holy Grail’ of analog delay tone, though, even as supplies of the chip dried up.

    Enter Xvive. Along with Howard Davis – designer of the original Memory Man – they reverse-engineered the MN3005 and brought out their own version. Is it as good as the original? Maybe, maybe not. EHX is using the new chip in their new production Deluxe Memory Man, though, so that says something…

    The sound of an analog delay isn’t JUST the chip, though; it’s the circuit.

    Chase Bliss Audio has made a GREAT circuit!

    When designing the Tonal Recall, CBA had to balance the best of the old BBD delays with the advances in technology that have come along in the last 40 years.

    They found the RIGHT balance!

    The Tonal Recall SOUNDS like the best of the old analog delays, but at the same time, it has MUCH more control over tone – the 16 DIP switches, MIDI control, etc. – that makes it the next step in analog delays!

    The Chase Bliss Audio Tonal Recall might not be the Holy Grail of analog delays, but if not, it’s pretty damn close!

  185. Such amazing products from Chase bliss. I wish I had some!

  186. Victor O'Connor says:

    Not only is this a great delay pedal but also comes backed by the awesome customer service of Chase Bliss Audio. They always take care of their customers and listen to customer feedback. I will always support a pedal company that cares about the people who buy their products!!

  187. Jeremy Baker says:

    I feel like out of the many boutique pedal companies, this one stands out the most. I would love to put one on my small board

  188. Christopher says:

    In the market for a delay. This might be the one!

  189. As a beginning guitarist winning the Tonal Recall would be fantastic to learn how to use a delay pedal and bring a whole lot of excitement in to my practicing.

  190. Attila Mihálka says:

    Maaan, wish I could afford one, sounds so awesome…

  191. Since I was unable to obtain a Moog MF-104M before they went out of production, I would like to have a Tonal Recall to use on my Theremin.

  192. Jasen Fontaine says:

    Need to get my hands on a tonal recall!

  193. Coll Thomson says:

    This looks and sounds absolutely awesome! Would definitely love to have this on my board!

  194. Would probably make a good upgrade from a memory toy!

  195. Roy Donkin says:

    I’ve always liked the sound of analog delays but most had just too little tweakability… this one seems just right

  196. I am really into the MIDI controls and would like to fully exploit this by connecting the Tonal Recall to my G2 Advanced Switching System, from Gig Rig, which I recently installed on my board. Need an analog delay to round out my pretty awesome board and definitely moving this to top of my list. Using the one-switch control, I’ll be able to activate any preset on my Tonal Recall and my H9 simultaneously, effectively analog-izing the digital-ness of the H9.

  197. I’d really like to own an analog pedal. Much more organic sound than a digital signal!

  198. Awesome machine, total tonal flexibility.

  199. Alex Porter says:

    We Can Remember It For You Wholesale – so there…

  200. Richard Hemsley says:

    looks like an awesome pedal to own

  201. Nate Steckel says:

    I don’t have this modern classic yet. But if I win this bad boy I’d put it before EQD Afterneath for that extra ambient effect.

  202. Justin Krampert says:

    I would use this pedal to create music for my parrot. Nibbler loves to listen to guitar music, and he’ll hang out on the top side of my fretboard and chase my fingers as I’m playing.

  203. Sean Marshall says:

    Would love this pedal, but don’t have FB or Twitter account to “like.”

  204. This would bump so many things off the board. Rad work as always.

  205. This is the next step in analogue delays. BRAVO!

  206. This company amazes me. Badly need + want this unit!

  207. Dan Kucera says:

    Looks like an amazing pedal!

  208. Want much.

  209. Damn, as someone with a Memory Boy, this pedal seems like the necessary next step in making a massively capable delay in a more traditional box size. All that awesome modulation being able to get so dialed in without getting out of control is an awesome tool. Kudos to Chase Bliss!

  210. Marc Brule says:

    Who wouldn’t want such a great pedal, regardless of serial number! But having this one? Oh yeah!

    Oh the textures I would infuse into my rig!

  211. love it.

  212. Wow! Do want :)

  213. I need some bliss.

  214. that’s a total recall that it is the best

  215. Christopher Trocano says:

    I have a Memory Boy which is cool, but I’ve always wanted to play with something with tap tempo.

  216. Nice!!!! One of these is high on my GAS list.

  217. Very interesting features. Would love to experiment this pedal with my bass.

  218. Tonal Recall ( Recall Recall Recall ) Excellent Analog Delay (Delay Delay Delay) and This Pedal Will Make You Say ,,,, “Get Yourself To Mars” and “Start The Reactor” with all the adjustments ready this delay will take you there

  219. This is THE Swiss Army knife of all things Delay. And in an unbeatable package size. Wow. It is the best Delay I have seen in 28 years.

  220. Jimbo Riach says:

    This delay would probably knock 2 other delays off my board. Paired with my new Empress Reverb, I would be the undisputed tone king of my town.

  221. Vincent Garrett says:

    Great review indeed ! Hope to try this pedal by myself ;-)

  222. Jonathan Ory says:

    I’d like to think it doesn’t disqualify me that I used to own one of these. I was so so excited to get it the first day they were up for sale. I cherished it. I made recordings with it. Then… Money got tight. And I thought I could make do with just my source audio nemesis. Don’t get me wrong, I love my nemesis, but there’s something special about the tonal recall that it could never replicate. The tonal recall is crazy expensive and I’ll likely never afford it again, and it did help me out of a jam, but damn I miss it.
    Please Gabriel, give me yours. Lol.

  223. Kevin Fanning says:

    Need this badsly

  224. Very nice

  225. Andrew ranford says:

    Only heard good things about this delay, it’s on my short list!!

  226. Ken Wright says:

    Could really use this in our church band.

  227. Darryl Robbins says:

    I’ve heard great things about the bliss pedal! I hope to experience it myself with this giveaway!!
    Winner!

  228. Billy Roberts says:

    I’ve never played any Chase Bliss pedals, but I’m looking for a new delay. I’ve been using a Pigtronix Echolution, which is really amazing because of all of the crazy stuff it can do, but I’m looking for something more compact. Thanks for the review!

  229. Josh Kauffman says:

    This delay looks amazing ! Can’t wait to try it out ! Chase bliss audio makes amazing boxes , love my wombtone ver.1

  230. Stewart Guernsey says:

    When the dimensions begin to meld into each other, and time and space evolve to form an expanded universe of delights and wonder pulling all sentient beings towards a complete unity of consciousness, we will be able to safely say Chase Bliss paved the way with accurate prescience and Tonal Recall.

  231. This is the best pedal of all time!

  232. Antonio Caridad says:

    I think with this analog delay you can get that sound you’re looking for. Thanks. Good luck everybody!!!

  233. Mark Nason says:

    I have a friend who has a Chase Bliss pedal (the Gravitas) and I’d love to see what all those controls can do for a great delay pedal! I’m normally a option-phobe (afraid of too many choices) but I’d be willing to throw caution to the wind for this mighty Tonal Recall #1!

  234. Mike Harris says:

    So many switches and knobs… My brain may explode.

  235. If I am not me, then who the hell am I?

  236. This is the delay I’ve been looking for.

  237. Excellent review for an excellent pedal. Analog delay all day!

  238. Kyle Tippin says:

    I’ve gotta get my ass to Mars!

  239. I need this delay pedal, looks and sounds totally sick. Thanks for the review!

  240. Gotta love the Hybrid pedal idea.
    Great analog sound-check
    Digital Control-check.

    Cant go wrong with that

  241. Wow! I’ll take that one for sure!!

  242. Bruce Fontaine says:

    Sweet!
    #GetYourGAStoMars! http://bgfx.co/giveaway @ChaseBlissAudio #TonalRecall No.1 Giveaway!

  243. Really want to get my hands on one of these. Other than what seems to be an excellent delay in a compact form, I’m interested in the flexibility of the “digital brain,” because I’m all about tweakability. The icing on the cake, I’ve heard, is the drive an all-analog circuit like this brings to the delay platform. Give me a Beano, because I’ve got some serious G.A.S.!

  244. Why, WHY am I haunted by the fact of not owning that pedal! I definitely need to get one.

  245. Arturo Caissut says:

    Everything from Chase Bliss is freaking amazing.

  246. Sounds amazing! This would really complement my digital delay.

  247. Seth Okrend says:

    I’ll take it!

  248. Rémi Sève says:

    I’d love to play with this wonderfull pedal… I always loved delay, specialy analog ones. The sound is so organic, I never had such a feeling with a digital delay.

  249. More like Bonal recall. Hey-ooo!!!

  250. Giveaway entry!

    I have had my eye set on a Tonal Recall for quite some time! I would love to run this into my Mr. Black Ambience pedal & get weird.

  251. Noah Barnett says:

    I’d love to have this to use with my electric cello. The possibilities are absolutely endless.

  252. This delay sounds really good compared to other analog classics.

  253. This pedal is #1 on my want list. I think it would totally (tonally?!?) complete my ambient rig!

  254. This would replace every delay pedal I currently own! Killer!

  255. Travis Hill says:

    I have too many digital delays, and not enough analog. Please!

  256. Brandon Marsella says:

    Want!

  257. This is quite the impressive pedal. The fact that it’s both analog and midi capable is a huge plus. GAS intensifying for sure. I’d love to have this in my board.

  258. Cody Rathman says:

    Being completely analog and a massive amount of customization, this pedal seems to be the end-all-be-all of analog delays. I really dig the small footprint too!

  259. john j pioli says:

    Wow what a sweet pedal !!!

  260. Justin TenCate says:

    I have such a soft spot for unique one-off pedals, that it’s rare for a production critter to gain and keep my attention. Chase Bliss has done exactly that with this masterpiece. Well done, mad scientist CB guys!

  261. Steve Comeau says:

    I have a digital delay – Flashback mini – but I don’t think it can sound as lush as the Tonal Recall.

  262. Still want it!

  263. Mario Manzano says:

    I bet there is a saucer full of secrets in this tiny box

  264. Mario Manzano says:

    I bet there is a saucer full of secrets in this tine box

  265. Jared Hissa says:

    The dual function Tap / Hold alone looks like it’s worth the price of admission!

  266. I’ve used a Warped Vinyl and desperately want to fiddle with the Wombtone… the flexibility and absolute attention to tonal detail makes me think anything Chase Bliss does a necessity for a pedalboard.

  267. Heard it. need it. Want it!

  268. David Polidoro says:

    Chase Bliss Audio makes high quality, extremely innovative products, and this one is no exception.

  269. Awesome. Love the analog sound

  270. Joel’s secret? He is actually an army of tiny, magical gnomes wearing a human disguise.

  271. Guido Huffenreuter says:

    Very nice! Thinking of getting me one.

  272. Simen Andersen says:

    I have a huge pedal that can do about the same stuff as this tiny thing. This tiny thing sounds better though…

  273. Zack Simpson says:

    Amazing sounding pedal and I can’t wait to add it to my arsenal!

  274. I never know if I like the way this pedal looks but I do know it sounds awesome. And it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right?

  275. Nathan Guzman says:

    Amazing

  276. Jason Eshelman says:

    This thing is an engineering marvel. So much is packed into it. I can’t wait to get my hands on one!

  277. Steve Tupper says:

    I’ve haven’t tried one yet…..but it’s on my list for 2017! I hear on good things about it. Love the name too!!

  278. Derrick White says:

    Built like a Tank. Love to Own this

  279. Felipe Devicaro says:

    This is like creating soundtrack with just one pedal.

  280. Wow!

  281. Wowee!!!

  282. Jamie Irving says:

    I almost don’t want to win this because I’m fairly sure I would never leave the house ever again.

    (I very much do want to win this, sacrificing social interaction and sunlight is the very least I would do for this pedal)

  283. Patrick Redford says:

    I had one when they got released, but sadly had to sell it on – gutted. The modulation is as lush and worth the money alone.

  284. Tester Retset says:

    Holy cow! It sounds absolutely amazing, dude!

  285. Steven Razey says:

    Shes a beauty

  286. Amazingly beautiful and versatile. Has to be the best analog delay (way) out there at the moment. A pedal to inspire whole songs or even records. Would love to have one.

  287. Great pedal and one of the best demo!

  288. This pedal looks amazing!

    So the odds of winning are incredibly low, but at the entry price of these pedals, this may be the only way I manage to snag one. Good luck everybody!

  289. oh boy… i. must. have. now. now. now. this is such a super crazy awesome pedal i don’t even know if i would be able to fly it – but i sure would try – and then some (and probably get sucked in and dial knobs for hours and flick switches and noodle and hum and forget about all the rest). this is a dangerous beast! and I wanna play with it so so so so bad.

  290. “Space by itself, and time by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality.” Enter the Tonal Recall.

  291. michael tomlinson says:

    I need it I need it I need it I need it I need it I need it I need it I need it I need it.

  292. keytana escobales says:

    I would use it to create all kinds of unique sounds and come closer to finding my ideal tone. As well as a third pedal.

  293. Been battling a design flaw in a cheap old johnson analog delay pedal (it’s lacking pre-emphasis but it surly has a de- emphasis sucking away at my tone). It ads an awesome dark and dirty element I wish it was more tonal! Sounds like the tonal recall is what I need to replace it with.

  294. This is a dream pedal. The modulation possibilities are off the charts. If I don’t win one I’m certain to shell out the money for it anyways (it’s worth it)

  295. This is an absolute dream pedal. Nothing compares to its tones and modulation. Can’t wait to either win one or just shell out the money (it’s worth it)

  296. Great review. I feel in love with this pedal at the LA Stompbox Exhibit and have wanted one ever since. The modulation effects are killer.

  297. Owen steiger says:

    I WANT!

  298. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for in a pedal for almost all of my effects I’m looking for.

  299. Nathan Asfour says:

    This is one helluva pedal. Id love to own one someday. Merry Christmas!!

  300. Commenting for the dubya

  301. It’s not a tumor.

  302. According to the demos, this thing very accurately replicates the sound of icicles falling down a vast chasm, and I’m into that.

  303. This is freaking awesome!

  304. Chase Bliss Audio has captured my heart with their creativity and quality products. At this time I only have their Gravitas Tremolo pedal and it’s fantastic! It super versital with its digital controls, but carries the organic warm of a true analog pedal.

    I would expect nothing less from this pedal and hope that in the coming year that I am able to acquire one. From what I’ve read and watched in demos, I feel that this would be a perfect addition to anyone’s board.

    Personally, I would love it to use in worship, jazz, and organic ambient spacey pieces. It would be awesome for drones, swells, pads, etc.

  305. Larry Pascal says:

    With all the dip-switch possibilities this one’s awesome for the tweakster in us all

  306. LOVE this stuff. Analog meets digital. Killer

  307. Great pedal, love to be able to experiment with this!!

  308. I need one of these!

  309. Joel is the man

  310. Camille Meslier says:

    I want it sooo much, such a sweet pedal !!!

  311. Joel and co. are the best! I’ve been lucky to own a few of his pedals, and they sound amazing of course, but there is a feeling of something that was really crafted too. I love the Warped Vinyl, but I’m hoping the Tonal Recal will give more of the pitch bending goodness I love.

  312. Joel and co. are great dudes! This is the first delay that has made me think about selling my DMM.

  313. David Outten says:

    This pedal looks crazy. Like nothing in the world to this point. Can’t imagine how excited I’d be to win this

  314. I so want one of these!

  315. Arthur Turner says:

    Cheers for the chance

  316. Arthur Turner says:

    sweet ass choons an all that

  317. Elijah Johnston says:

    I am a delay junky, so this is more or less the holy grail. I think I would pair it with a Digidelay or dd20 to get super murky repeats that could then get lifted to a little brighter sound afterwards. It would also be fun to try and replicate the sounds of the warped vinyl, because there seems to be a lot of potential for overlap in the two pedals

  318. Bev Davies says:

    Have seen & heard loads of brilliant demos of the amazing Tonal Recall pedal, it’s very inspiring !!
    Always amazed at the build quality from @chaseblissaudio and the sheer flexibility they manage to squeeze into such fantastic looking pedals !!! Awesome!

  319. Polimorfos says:

    Ingenious design.

  320. I would love this pedal with all my heart. Have had my eye on it for a while. Analog delay, with all those modes, a dry-to-wet mix knob, and fine-tuning time-shaping knob to boot. Can’t be beat–yes!

  321. Kjetil Hallén says:

    The possibilities seems endless for this pedal, and would be all everyone probably will ever need. The sound is good, it seems well built and for beeing handmade the price is OK. Today I have a Catalinbread Echorec, and I do think this pedal would macht perfectly, since it is possible to find my sound because of all the the options.

  322. The things I would do for this pedal

  323. Seems to be a must have – just liek the other chase bliss pedals :-)

  324. Simon Humphries says:

    I tried this pedal at my local shop and have been dreaming of it ever since. It has everything I could ask for in an analog delay pedal, such a great sound and an amazing piece of technology!

  325. Jim Lipscomb says:

    This delay sounds like a winner. I really want to riff around with the “both” switch enabled

  326. These things sound great in all the demo videos. But I don’t know if I am smart enough to dial one of these in.

    Maybe I will win one and I can try

  327. Ian Swanberg says:

    This is a crazy pedal! It needs to be in my collection and make crazy in love with my tone everyday!

  328. I’ve played all versions of the DMM, DM-2, digital delays galore. I can’t wait to see how the Tonal Recall stacks up.

  329. Jim Quarnstrom says:

    The only CB pedal I have yet to own. It will be mine, oh yes, it will be mine.

  330. Love the work you guys are doing

  331. Very interesting. I have not kept up with the latest info on BBDs. I’d love to have this pedal to check them out.

  332. Fabian Torres says:

    I plan on repeating myself a lot in 2017.. this would help.

  333. jeremiah lind says:

    Thanks for the chance.

  334. Joel Matthew Gray says:

    Borrowed the tonal recall from my keyboard player a few weeks ago and I was blown away. The versitility is insane for an analog delay, and offers so many tonal possibilities.

  335. Joel Matthew Gray says:

    Borrowed the tonal recall from my keyboard player a few weeks ago and I was blown away. The versitility is insane for an analog delay, and offers so many tonal possibilities.

  336. Loving the midi / cv capability !!! Chase bliss is really onto something

  337. Have wanted one for months!

  338. Sure hope to get to try one of these.
    Thanks

  339. Absolutely amazing! This would pair up with my synths perfectly.

  340. I have never heard anything like this…..amazing job!

  341. Best analog delay ever!!

  342. Ryan Worthley says:

    This is hands down the greatest modern analog delay on the market.

  343. Looks good! So many options, maybe too many. Definitely a quality product

  344. This pedal sounds amazing and Id really love to add it to my signal path. I’m a delay junky and the modulation on this is so unique. I’ll have one someday

  345. Joshua Biehler says:

    I want one of these so much! My only concern is that my size 13 shoe would demolish the toggle between the foot switches! Thank goodness for Barefoot buttons…

    • Ryan Worthley says:

      The toggle is super low profile, you’d be fine. And if you hit both switches at once to turn it on or off it’s no big deal because the tap sequence takes at least two taps to be initiated!

  346. Gabriel Miller says:

    I need something to go with a carbon copy to get maximum shoegaze – this seems like it fits the bill. Also, starting to get a heavily sequenced effect chain going using Numerology, and midi controlled delay is exactly what I want!

  347. Okay, first of all, I think I’m in love with this company. I’ve sought for a long time to have a 100% analog signal path and struggled with a lack of functionality that accompanies digital pedal interfaces (chiefly, BPM and tone presets). Chase Bliss changed all that. I’ve now got the Gravitas and the Tonal Recall and use them in combination with the Disaster Area DMC-4. I have all the functionality of digital, one click presets with all the prestige (maybe I spelled pretense wrong) and gorgeous warmth and decay of an entirely analog signal. Thank you Joel Korte!

  348. Looks and sounds amazing! It would be interesting to hear how it sounds with an analog synth

  349. greg piotrowski says:

    sounds like a great pedal! keep up the good work.

  350. Brendan Collins says:

    I keep hearing great things about this pedal and delays are my favorite so I would love to get my hands on one of these guys. Great review!

  351. Edward Cabrera says:

    Chorus and Vibrato too!? Joel is a wizard. I very much appreciate his approach to building as I have a reverence for all things analog, especially ones that are capable of creating such unique sounds as his whole line is. I’m still building my pedal palette regarding which sounds I’d like to adopt into my own but as soon as I heard of this powerhouse a few months ago it was a no brainer that I needed this in my chain. And when I saw you folks were giving one away for free I dropped everything and jumped all the hoops as fast as I could. Whether or not I win this amazing box, I resolve to make this a part of my board someday.

  352. Looks like a whole lotta pedal!

  353. Josh Birdsong says:

    The tone of the Tonal Recall by Chase Bliss Audio is inventive, expressive, and exceptional. This is truly an instrument and provides endless creative potential.

  354. Nice sound to this one

  355. Andres Murillo says:

    Very Great Pedal

  356. beautiful sounding pedal!

  357. Ryan Pedersen says:

    Great in depth review and beautiful sounding pedal!

  358. Ryan Edwards says:

    One of the most exciting analog delay pedals to come out in years. Looking dorwatd to whatever Chase Bliss comes out with next. And here’s hoping I win one from the best guitar effects contest.

  359. This would definitely be a well used addition to my board!

  360. Alice Pearson says:

    Nice pedal, would love to have it!

  361. tonal curatorial capabilities of this pedal seem endless, totally making a vid if I get this…I’d love to win this since currently I’m out of delay pedals.

  362. This is way more than i need but i want one for sure

  363. Sounds amazing. Ich need this one <3

  364. Great review. Nothing would make this holiday season sweeter than getting one for my board :D

  365. Besides this awesome Tonal Recall pedal reviewed here, I also dig all the rest of Joel’s pedals and the design aesthetic he incorporates.

    What I would love to see in the future from Chase Bliss…

    Fuzz pedal with some glitchiness ala the PTD Tornita, Fuzz Factory, and Sputnik, Not sure if there can be an alternate use for the mod u shape switches as I am not sure that would be the best use for them in a Fuzz type pedal. Yes I am aware of the joint project one that does fuzz trem, not at all what I would like to see from a straight up Chase Bliss version of fuzz.

    Filter pedal would be killer and could be quite fun in Chase Bliss format.

    Ring Mod that can track notes ala the vetruvian but with slightly better tone like Randy’s Revenge or the Moog would also be an interesting choice for CBA.

    So there ya go… my wish list of 3 for Joel to hit us with down the road. :)

    and

    hoping I shared photo and comments correctly to be properly entered in giveaway :P

  366. Cousin Orson says:

    Khuu Khuu Khuu

  367. I’d love to try one of these. I suspect it’d bump my Caroline Kilobyte right off my board!

  368. Brett Paschen says:

    If I won the Chase Bliss Audio Tonal Recall it would definitely be my go to delay.Although I would keep my other delay pedal on my board and run them together from time to time.Chase Bliss pedals are the most tweakable pedals out there.I love the fact that they use Panasonic MN3005 Bucket Brigade delay chips!!I love everything about this pedal!!

  369. Nikita Gedgaudas says:

    It amazes me how it still is analog. It’s a dream to have my hands on that, that’s one pedal to replace them all

  370. Man you really getting some lush sounds out of this pedal!

  371. Awesome delay, from what I’ve heard in demos. Would love to get one. Pricey though.

  372. Cant wait to take this thing for a spin!

  373. Johnny Williams says:

    Tonal recall is a total dream machine for sound designers and pedal enthusiasts!

  374. Looks sweet.

  375. Lewis Davie says:

    An absolutely stunning pedal, make no mistake! Fingers crossed for the giveaway. Great review.

  376. Brandon LaPointe says:

    Not bad! Good job with the review getting its versitility.

  377. I want this!

  378. Patrick Rose says:

    Has an awesome name, and sounds awesome too. Sounds like it is a very good analog pedal.

  379. Great review. I’ve tried it in the shop twice and am still discovering possibilities.

  380. Louis Kiley says:

    oh sweet nectar of the gads! how beautiful art thou…

  381. I think this could definitely knock my digitech delay off the board! This would be my face if I won! https://goo.gl/images/fjwULV

  382. Jona Rosenberg says:

    One day it shall be mine.

  383. This pedal was love at first sight for me. Not only does it sound amazing, the look and the name of it just makes it perfect.

  384. Nick Cronin says:

    This looks/sounds absolutely amazing. Owning this would give me a complete analog effects rig. Complete my life Best Guitar Effects, I’m on a mission to Mars! Side note, I recently stumbled upon your website and have been enjoying you’re in depth reviews.

  385. I consider myself an analog delay aficionado and this pedal seems so great. It’s great to see that some pedal company have a similar approach to their product as classic luthiers, they want to make it as good as possible. Also Knobs videos are amazing and sell it even more.

  386. Akshay Nikumbh says:

    The sounds are amazing. I’d love to experiment with it’s tonal possibilities. It’d be a perfect for my first analog pedal ever!

  387. Boom.

  388. Well written review, and CBA proves time and time (and time-time-t-t-tiiiiime-ti) again that there are few makers who possess the creative ability and thoughtful execution found in these northern U.S. wizard boxes.

  389. Miles Cookman says:

    I so need this pedal. My last delay came to a sticky end thanks to an over zealous dancer with a full pint of beer.

  390. Chris Trentacosta says:

    I love this review because it goes over all of the details. Delay is one of my favorite effects and this pedal is the most amazing sounding delay I’ve ever heard. I would absolutely love to have it

  391. Jeff Brehony says:

    Great name for a delay! They ought to classify it as a delay/cancellation pedal, cause I know if I got my hands on one, I’d have to clear my calendar! Thanks fer all the great info here on the website folks!

  392. How is this on synths? Is it a step up from the Minifooger Delay?

  393. Jessica Ackerley says:

    woohoo!

  394. Justin Slaughter says:

    Awesome pedal. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for amazing and diverse tone quality.

  395. Conner Johnson says:

    Chase Bliss units are truly works of art. My fingers are SOOO crossed!

  396. Longer delay time would be cool. Nice pedal, anyway

  397. It’s AMAZING!! It would be the best Christmas if I got one… Think of the wondful sounds one can create with such a beauty!!!

  398. Sean James Clements says:

    I want this pedal sooooo bad! I’ve been using a EHX DMB fir awhile now and it’s been great, but I want more. Chase Bliss has it! With this pedal (and a Midi controller) I’d be able to get all the different delay sounds my heart desires! I mist have it!!!

  399. Tom Richardson says:

    Chase Bliss have an appropriate name… the lush sounds I forever aspire to but have so far failed to summon the funds! One day, one day.

  400. This is exactly the tone possibility you want in any situation. Few pedals can do all this better.

  401. Andy Baird says:

    I would love to use this pedal in conjunction with a digital delay to really put out the voicing that I want. I’m currently using a carbon copy, but this would give me so many more options in creating great soundscapes.

  402. I love delay & reverb pedals. They sound amazing with clean playing, and subtle addition of it adds depth to overdrive sounds. This pedal is over-the-top boutique deliciousness. However, it does get me wondering if this could potentially lead to a successful line of Arnold Schwarzenegger-movie themed pedals. Ideas such as “The 6th Delay”, “Collateral Damage” (it could be a fuzz/distortion pedal), or “Last Action Tremolo” come to mind. Jokes aside, this is a serious contender for the crown for delay pedals. The only downside that I can think of to this pedal is that a great deal of time has to be dedicated to exploiting all of the overwhelming potential that it holds. This is definitely a pedal that requires a pen and paper in order to “Recall” all of the presets that one may want to use. Then again, that may not be such a bad thing.

  403. IndieGuitarDude says:

    This pedal is amazing! It totally stretches the boundaries of what an analog delay can do and would be a good fit on just about any board out there! The modulation can give this pedal a cool eerie sound that is incredible!

  404. Wow, what an awesome blend of old and new! I haven’t seen anything quite like this pedal with the analog signal path, midi control, and very low noise. This pedal leaves lots of room for experimentation! I can’t wait to try it out!

  405. Akshay Nikumbh says:

    I really loved the sounds of Tonal Recall!

  406. paul ferguson says:

    This is a nice pedal but can’t see it as being a sole delay in a setup. More of a compliment to another delay.

  407. Henry Reinach says:

    One of the best compact delays on the market. Top of the line quality of course coming from Chase Bliss. Will sound great in tangent with my Empress Reverb!

  408. David Sensenstein says:

    I really like what this pedal is and does. The only thing that could make it better would be if there were a hidden “Arnold” setting.

  409. Cool pedal! I think it would be interesting to see chase bliss take on a popular distortion pedal, like the proco rat or muff, and give it a ton of controls.

    I also think a Chas Bliss tri-chorus would be epic!

  410. I’ve always admired Chase Bliss from afar, watching demos and drooling. The price has always been way out of my league, though, and for a while I thought it was a little ridiculous. Until I got to play one of these the other day, and MAN…the price is justified. I can’t believe how much this thing can do. And at EVERY turn how good it sounds. It’s truly the most organic, sweet-sounding delay I’ve ever played. And along with all that analog warmth, it’s still clear as a bell. Truly the best of both worlds. I see this pedal in my dreams…DAMN YOU JOEL, YOU MAD GENIUS!

  411. I love the Tap-tempo button doubling as the Feedback regeneration, great space saver.

    That and the ability to double up with another one are my favourite features.

    If only it had top jacks, it’d be perfect.

    Any Chase Bliss pedal is always a tweaker’s delight!

  412. the hold function seems super cool and useful. would love to incorporate some crazy oscillation into some songs in a more controllable manner!

  413. Brandon Pickel says:

    Talk about a retro looking pedal with old school inner workings. An analog delay seems very interesting, I’ve only had experience with digital delay pedals so this should be very cool. As a guitarist who enjoys playing around with atmospheric tones, this in combination with my Arrows Preamp from EQD and built in reverb from my Marshall combo amp could definitely paint a very trippy scene! I’ve entered the free pedal giveaway and would love to add this to my chain!

  414. Love the features and build quality

  415. Sash kosovic says:

    Wow. You could fake a Martian landing with this thing!

  416. I’ve always admired and desired Chase Bliss pedals from afar. They are crazy expensive, but the other day I finally got to play a Tonal Recall and MAN…the price is justified. It can just do SO MUCH. And even when you are using it at its most basic settings, it sounds sweeter than any delay I’ve heard. I started by dialing in a Gilmourish short repeat, and it was simultaneously warm and very clear. Sweet, sweet sound. And then as the rep showed me all the ins and outs, I became further blown away. This analog dream is seriously at the top of my wishlist. DAMN YOU, JOEL, YOU BLOODY GENIUS!

  417. I cannot wait to snag one of these!

  418. Sometimes you need that extra “something” to take you to space. You’ve tried numerous delay pedals and none of them can satisfy that natural analog urge without sacrificing digital convenience. Then you finally save up enough money to try the Chase Bliss Tonal Recall and suddenly, you realize you’re gonna need one for your bass player too. Too bad he’s broke. I’m sure you’ll figure something out.

  419. Nunzio Annunziata says:

    This pedal is looking great and sounds even better than it looks!
    I think this will get every guitar player satisfied at 100%.
    Great look, outstanding sound.. What are you searching for? This will be perfect even if you’re an audiophile.

    Nunzio A.

  420. Peter Semple says:

    Sounds complicated but awesome. I used to have an old Ibanez Analog Delay that I regretted selling. This sounds like a much smoother version of the same yummy sound. Now that my son is learning guitar and getting into old songs with classic tones it would be perfect.

  421. i’ve been experimenting with a lot of digital delay effects for the past couple of years. based on the myriad of options on this pedal i think i might want to try and save up for one of these to add to the end of my signal chain for some otherworldly choices.

  422. I feel kind of strange writing a comment because I dont know much about pedal effects. However I have been a guitar player for around 9 years now and think I’m ready for experimenting with my sound. So it is no surprise that Chasbliss’s Tonal recall caught my eye. Not only does this pedal look like a device from a Sì-if movie, it sounds out of this world! I love how versatile the controls are and the amount of possibilities it gives you to create a uniquely stellar tone. I already entered the contest to win a free One and of course I really want to be the lucky recipient. Knowing my odds I’m ready to drop the cash in a heart beat.. but a free one would be nice.

  423. This pedal seems very interesting.

  424. I have a circuit bend Yamaha DD6 that I would love to run through the Tonal Reacll and my modified BossDD3 stacked Glitch to the max

  425. Merlin Long says:

    Pretty- like an airplane control panel.

  426. anders lisle says:

    would sell my left earlobe for this pedal. love these guys

  427. EtherealityX says:

    Can I achieve The Edge’s ( Unforgettable Fire- Joshua Tree- Rattle & Hum era dealy tone) with this pedal?

  428. Amazing. One of those boxes that is actually unique and hasn’t been replicated!

  429. Federico Benvenuto says:

    Mindblowing pedal! I’d like so much to afford it

  430. Andrew Wang says:

    I’ve always dreamed of a bucket brigade delay with options like this. Mind blowing. Especially in a world full of digital delays with crazy options. Need this thing.

  431. I’d love to see an ambient reverb machine from Chase BLiss, that would truly blow my mind

  432. arbel maidan says:

    What a unique pedal. Joel really shines with the work on these pedals, giving you so many options to create your own sound and signature. This is truly a brilliant concept.

  433. Thomas Howard says:

    This is straight-up otherworldly!! Wow!!

  434. Josh McConnell says:

    Can’t wait to get my hands on one of these!

  435. After falling in love this this pedal recently I haven’t been able to keep my eye off it. Being new to the pedal community this pedal is really what I desire most to help fill my board. The simplicity of tap tempo, along with the ultimate 3 types of modulation are just amazing. Even the graphics on this thing shine above that of other pedals, as clearly represent what the art piece this thing is would be used for; spacey, out of this world sound. This really is the psychedelic guitar players dream, hence why I only desire to own this masterpiece of design and sound. It’s not too common that you come across something like this.

  436. 3 knobs are better than 2! Very cool pedal with amazing features.

  437. Jeremy A. Madrid says:

    This is how I imagine the Tonal Recall interacts with other delay pedals.

    Generic Delay Pedal #1000, “You’ve got a lot of nerve showing your face around her [Tonal Recall]

    Tonal Recall, “Look who’s talking!”

    Joel makes beautiful pedals, and I can’t imagine you would need another delay after this one.

  438. Matt Anderson says:

    I would love to try this pedal out!

  439. Kristin Ellingsen says:

    I’d love to bring Tonal Recall with me to the studio, for the making of my new record!:)

  440. Rad sounds :)

  441. Wow! This is definitely the pedal to cover Radiohead songs from Kid A on. Great ambient sounds and spectacular responsivity… would like to try one live!!

  442. I love this pedal. Very great for experimental sounds! I wish the delay was a bit longer. Still it’s AWESOME!!!

  443. Love Chase Bliss, looks like another home run.

  444. Jeremy Madrid says:

    This is how I imagine the Tonal Recall speaks to other delay pedals:

    Generic Delay Pedal #1000: “You’ve got a lot of nerve showing your face around here [Tonal Recall].

    Tonal Recall: “Look who’s talking.”

    Joel makes beautiful vehicles for music, and I don’t expect you’ll ever want another delay after hearing what this pedal can do.

  445. Jacob Medeiros says:

    Pretty Dope Pedal

  446. Jacob Lacayo says:

    This pedal pretty much covers every possible idea for a delay pedal. Amazing work by Chase Bliss, and a great review.

  447. Derek Stark says:

    Digital control of analog circuits. That’s extremely hot. It boggles my mind how they fit that in such a small enclosure. It could have been Strymon sized and nobody would have batted an eye.

  448. Amazing to see this amount of features in a pedal this size. Brilliant.

  449. I really dig Chase Bliss’s approach to maximum versatility. Being able to really dial in a sound is a major selling point for pedals in my opinion. I don’t have a ton of pedals, but the next time I consider getting a delay, this one is at the top of my list.

  450. David Ramirez says:

    Awesome pedal! Can wait to try one! :)

  451. that first knobs demo is incredible

  452. Looks gorgeous, sounds even better. This sucker would take me to Pluto. Top clobber.

  453. Just getting back into guitar effects. Your website is a really great resource. This looks like a sweet sweet pedal too.

  454. Hoping to win this!
    Genuinely interested in hearing how it matches up to a vintage EHXDMM

  455. This looks like a really cool pedal.

  456. Adam Legros says:

    Sounds awesome!!

  457. Would love to play this. Especially interested in the crazy oscillation sounds, for me that’s where the biggest difference between analogue delay pedals lies…
    A distortion would be interesting done by Chase Bliss, im sure it would be very special :)

  458. Reminds me of Brian Eno sounds, very good pedal indeed

  459. Branden Timm says:

    Bad ass.

  460. Thomas DiSanto says:

    Great pedal!

  461. It sounds like it s a pretty good pedal.

  462. Jake Noble says:

    afternoon recall
    sounds sweep back, back,
    waves atonal

    low fi rise and fall
    audio warm bliss
    echo chase
    warm recall

  463. Ian Oakshott says:

    Nice delay. Just about to order one to pair with my Skredd Echo. Can’t wait!

  464. This pedal sounds dope! Need it to experiment in our new songs!

  465. Páll Sólmundur Eydal says:

    I’d love to have this one!

  466. great review – a trusted producer tells me this pedal is one of the best delays out there

  467. Jim Hughes says:

    I I I would would would put put put delay delay delay on on on my my my comment comment comment

  468. Yosua Lesmana Sitepu says:

    Rad! Rad! Rad!
    This is a whole different level of delay. Absolutely game-changer.
    Move aside gents, to infinity and beyond!

  469. Seems incredible! Would love to have a go with this down in the rehearsal with the band.
    Keep up the good work!

  470. Oh boy, this is one gorgeous pedal

  471. MIKASCH NEEDS THAT WONDERFUL DRUG. <3

  472. Awesome pedal to have!

  473. Ernest Montano says:

    Would use this with guitar and keyboards. Love the momentary bypass and the expression pedal capabilities

  474. Tanner Morgan says:

    So, the EHX DMM had MN30** BBDs in them right up until they switched to the Xvive? That’s what your writing makes it sound like, but I’m pretty sure there were several years where there were no MN30** chips in the DMM.
    ???

  475. Anthony Baccari says:

    Very Cool effect. Would work great with many instruments.

  476. Luke Garner says:

    Damn this thing is one hot tamale. I’ve been using a midi controller to use echoboy with all sorts of latency problems. Keeping my fingers crossed.

  477. Grayson Williams says:

    Gives me a warm feeling in my heart, and an ominous feeling of dread in my wallet. Marvelous.

  478. Ryndan Riley says:

    Dream delay pedal. Would love to have one. Would definitely be my go to delay.

  479. Graham O'Brien says:

    Chase Bliss Audio proves with the Tonal Recall that delays can still reach a whole new level of engineering and soundscapes.
    Combining digital and analog characteristics to create one kick-ass pedal appeals to me big time.

    I tried one in New York last month on a vacation and it was like leaving a girlfriend at the airport. I wish I could we could be reunited in some way.

    :D

  480. This delay is something truly special. The applications for this effect are near limitless, and that analog warmth this pedal is saturated in is infectious. This is an incredible device crafted by wizards. Always a fan of Chase Bliss Audio devices. Cheers!

  481. Great review of a really tempting pedal. The review covered all the bases of this pedal really well. I have wanted this pedal ever since I saw the Pop Life cover Andy @ Pro Guitar Shop did.

  482. Josiah Piper says:

    This thing does the job like no other.

  483. Laura Jaime says:

    AWeeeeeeesomeeee! Its fantastic

  484. Matthew King says:

    Holy moly. Great review of an amazing pedal, guys.

  485. It really sounds amazing. Would be awesome to have one!

  486. I need this pedal to conquer the world, please give it to me.

  487. Marius Lamprecht says:

    Nice thing! Would perfectly fit in My collection! There’s Neger too much gear. I need it!!

  488. Abhijeet Singh Negi says:

    Chase bliss Audio tonal recall delay sparks a whole new level of inspiration I love the sound which echoes all over the place and connects with the the soul I cannot say more this pedal is in my blood and Chase bliss Audio in my heart,someday I will love to own one.

  489. I’m a delay-aholic and this analog fuzziness is my latest fix. Really into the complete and utter overkill of it’s many options. Infinite delays for infinite days!

  490. Michael Brunetto says:

    Game changer pedals. My Mk1 Warped Vinyl is still one of my all time favorite pedals ever.

  491. Luke DJ SlyWalk says:

    I want to rock this delay pedal on one of my synths too, can’t wait to try it out.

  492. I love it. I want one!

  493. Wow! This is some serious analog delay pedal. The very cheap pedal I use nowadays could be retired if I added the Tonal Recall to my pedal board. Unfortunately it’s not that easy to get your hand on something like that here in Brazil… And it’s expensive over here, probably double the price than in the US or Canada.

  494. Mo Gottschall says:

    There must be an army of creative geniuses at Chase Bliss Audio. They managed to think of a mind-boggling number of unique features to pack into the Tonal Recall. I thought the simple tone control sounded really useful , but the list of cool ideas just kept going and going. It was like an infomercial, “But wait – there’s more! You can even switch from buffered to true bypass!”
    And it even LOOKS insanely cool. Reminds me of an awesome toy laser I had as a kid.
    I’m really impressed with this pedal! Great job, Chase Bliss!

  495. This is an incredible pedal. The amount of thought put into the design is ridiculous. Without a doubt at the top of my list of wanted gear. The way this thing self-oscillates is very cool. The hold button function for it is a nice touch. I’m sure the demo video just scratches the surface of the musical scope of this pedal. It is inspiration in a pretty box. One downside to the pedal is that I wish you could use both the ramp mode and expression pedal simultaneously, but I believe the ability to do so might just create a giant black hole and the world, along with this fabulous creation, would be no more. Thank you Chase Bliss

  496. Josh Richardson says:

    Absolutely gorgeous pedal!

  497. Travis Fletcher says:

    The Tonal Recall is the delay everybody needs! I have been a huge fan of Chasebliss ever since the warped vinyl. I have had the pleasure of playing most of their pedals (yes including the Tonal Recall) and everything is spectacular. Given the chance I would run my T. rex replica delay off my board for this! It covers so much!!!

  498. Yet another amazing pedal – thanks for a great comprehensive review!

  499. Siiiiiiiiick!
    Saving my quarters now…

  500. looks pretty sweet, would love using it to create some bedroom slow jams with my slow hand. a chase bliss compressor would be interesting… or an envelop filter.

  501. OMG this pedal is just blowing my mind! Wish this little badboy could end up under the christmas tree this year.. I’m dreaming about it.. this could upgrade my old delay pedal by far!

  502. Tim Clarke says:

    I would sell my spleen for this pedal.

  503. Amazing design, linked delays, stacked options, awesome sound – this is a premium delay.

  504. Can’t wait to use the tonal recall on my elektron machinedrum!!!!

  505. This pedal is really a work of art and advanced technology all in one. The fact that it has subdivisions, tap tempo, and so many different features in a standard size footprint sets it apart in a new class – and analog too! It’s visually stunning, and seems like it would inspire one to play, exploring the seemingly endless possibilities of this pedal. It’s very intuitive, yet user friendly. I’d use this pedal for many different applications, from a simple vintage analog delay all the way to ambience that would make you think you’re in a galaxy far far away. This is a great in depth review of this pedal. Do want.

  506. Laurent de couesbouc says:

    Wow amazing sounds… impressive!

  507. Morten Sigurd Hansen says:

    Very interesting, have to try this some day!

  508. This is most likely the nicest sounding analog delay I have ever heard.

  509. I wish I had this awesome pedal.

  510. What a great opportunity. Would be awesome to own.

  511. I’ve been keeping an eye on this since it was announced. I LOVE the DM-2 and this looks like such an amazing pedal in a teeny tiny enclosure! I’m super impressed with Joel’s approach to design. And who doesn’t love a good Paul Verhoeven reference!

  512. Brix Milner says:

    Wow! Now that I have read this…even if I do not win the drawing, I may have to buy one! I don’t even know where to start about the awesomeness of this thing. Must have!

  513. Luis Campa says:

    Let’s take a trip back to memory lane :)

  514. Wouter Standaert says:

    Looks nice!

  515. The sound on this Delay pedal feels like it echoes back to my teens and then brings me back again!!

  516. Jeff Passet says:

    If I could only win one of these it would free up more of my time I could and try to recall who I am when I am playing

  517. This thing looks amazing. I would love to have one of my own.

  518. This thing looks (and sounds, in the videos) amazing. Would love to have one of my own.

  519. Not a common pedal you’d think of, immediately.
    I appreciate the mindset the producer had, for inventing this überduperdope delay pedal.
    It’s so versatile and it comes with these many functions, I cannot even put them all in one reaction.
    For it is a huge evolution in the creation of pedals, I put myself into participation for this competition.
    The origin of the name for the pedal, is also worth mentioning and therefore I show my condolences to its friends and family.

  520. LUST LUST LUST

  521. Paulo Barone says:

    Excellent review! Amazing pedal! I want it!

  522. Antonio Lorenzo says:

    Cool review

  523. You wouldn’t have had to write this review… now I’m forced to try it :(

  524. Good review. I’d love to have one… Unforunately, i’m too poor :D

  525. Good review. I’d love to have one… Unforunately, i’m too poor :D

  526. Peter Grey says:

    Another great review of another great pedal and another pedal on my must try list

  527. David Fisher says:

    Joel blows my mind with his creativity and his master building skills! My goodness this pedal sounds incredible.

  528. Would love a chance to check it out.

  529. Paul Wichmann says:

    This is honestly the best stompbox delay i’ve ever heard, and for me the next best thing soundwise to a real echorec, while offering tremendous functionality while being much too expensive, though still considerate considering the size of chase bliss effects.

  530. bertram D says:

    with all these control at hand, would be great synth delay…

  531. Darryl Robbins says:

    I’d love to try it – maybe I could win it? Yes!

  532. Andy Ranitzsch says:

    Hoping to win, else I don’t think i’ll be able to play such and artwork in my life :)

  533. Andre van Niekerk says:

    I can’t wait to give this a crack, I had no idea that jellybeans are fruit!
    This pedal looks absolutely amazing, I can’t wait to put it to work. So many subtle, warm, atmospheric options to fill out those bass lines and reduce the footprint on the pedal board! Spectacular!

  534. Gabe Tonestoy says:

    So damn luscious, yet so damn expensive…. Perhaps my only chance to play through one of these beauties is if I can win it on Best Guitar Effects! Haha. Wish me luck! But seriously, what an incredible core tone. I just love analog delays, and this one looks like it just takes the cake.

  535. Gabe Tonestoy says:

    So damn luscious, yet so damn expensive…. Perhaps my only chance to play through one of these beauties is if I can win it on Best Guitar Effects! Haha. Wish me luck! But seriously, what an incredible core tone. I just love analog delays, and this one looks like it just takes the cake.

  536. Pat Lacey says:

    Great review, but oh my…. That’s another pedal I have to save for

  537. That’s some trippy delay

  538. Aramis Jaramillo says:

    Looks awesome, I want it.

  539. Jacob Eras says:

    Joel Korte’s legendary work on these pedals have made my heart skip beats and my wallet cry. I love how the modulation and dip switch capabilities work for the Tonal Recall. The work of a god this thing is.

  540. There is so much to be said about a pedal that allows this level of control. Some of us (myself included) definitely have a problem with our brains that demands an insane level of control to exercise over every little detail. The short/long/both delay selection, the LFO selection, and the ability to control Mix, Rate, Time, Regen, and Depth via expression are epically valuable to me. Even on other delays that are very satisfying, these are things I always wish for in the back of my head. To cram all of that, and so much more, into one pedal is nuts. The fact that the effect sounds so good regardless of the generous array of controls is enough to cause a severe case of GAS in any effect geek. Honestly, they could have must made the pedal with regular Mix, Regen, Delay controls, but preserved the sound quality, and I would have still wanted it. But knowing the guys at Chase Bliss, they would never have stopped until every parameter was exploitable. That’s why I love those guys. Maximum delivery in every single pedal.

  541. Charlie Hase says:

    Love the design… my pedal steel would love it

  542. I’m pretty sure with the CBA dip switches this thing is gonna take forever to work out but hey it looks absolutely awesome!

  543. Intriguing and confusing. Yes, please!

  544. jeremiah Lind says:

    WHat an awesome delay

  545. Seems to be a really complex pedal, but i already love it! A muddly pedal but i would really give it a try!

  546. Manuel Latorre says:

    I’d love to have this both aesthetic and sonic beauty and the beast. My twitter account is @ManuelLatorreJr
    Thank you very much for the chance!

  547. Adam Altman says:

    how could so many options be in one small pedal??
    I want to know…..I want to have it!!!

  548. Don Hutchko says:

    Good review

  549. ADELA CORDERO SERRANO says:

    GREAT!!

  550. ADELA CORDERO SERRANO says:

    GREAT!!

  551. With this the possibilities make for anything I’d need.

  552. Seems there I found the way to get my ass on mars.
    See you at the party, Richter.

  553. Dan Holyfield says:

    I hope to get the chance to use it it sounds great.

  554. I’ll post a hundred times if I have to. I just want to win this pedal.

  555. I want this pedal so bad, and I don’t think I even fully understand all that it’s capable of.

  556. luis neiva says:

    There are many analog delays, but I doubt that there’s another that calls my attention as much as this one. I want one… :-)

  557. Nitsan G. says:

    This thing is too rad!
    I have 3 ideas for songs only by reading about it!

  558. Nathanael Nguyen says:

    I can’t begin to imagine the amount of creative juices flowing out of my brain once i get my hands on a tonal recall and a gravitas.

  559. sweet love to try one out

  560. Kevin Foertsch says:

    How could this pedal get any better? Analog with tap, midi, expression, and tons of possibilities. Since I first heard of this pedal I’be been wanting to actually hear it! Lol. Thanks for the great review.

  561. Jerry Stoonfeld says:

    The warped vinyl makes all my dreams come true. With the tonal recall I would be unstoppable.

  562. Christian Bjørn Olsson says:

    If I won this pedal, the thing I would be most thrilled about is the expression pedal compability. Controlling delay time in realtime, now that’s sick! Also the fact that this pedal is so flexible in sound with the tone knob, that is a very nice feature. God I hope to win this pedal!! :D

  563. Great review of a great pedal. I’d love to add it to my pedalboard!

    https://twitter.com/GodsOfTheEarth/status/795056081710022656 (I remembered to include the picture in this tweet!)

  566. Eddie Silva says:

    This pedal looks and sounds amazing! I’ve had my eye on it since the day it came out. Could only dream of winning this baby in a giveaway. My hopes are up.

  567. Adam Angus says:

    Having a hard time deciding whether to go for a Moog 104m / 104z, a new memory man or the Tonal Recall.

  568. Alan Grimes says:

    What an incredible machine and a fabulous prize, hope I get lucky.

  569. Oh yeah

  570. Daniel West says:

    Chase Bliss has so quickly risen the ranks of pedal manufacturers. We sorely needed such a revolutionary design concept. The molding and digital and analog has always been a huge challenge, but there is such a huge market for it that it’s worth it if you can do it.

  571. Beshmonger says:

    What a wildly awesome pedal!

  572. This pedal is amazing!! Check out the Warped Vinyl pedal they have too. I imagine both of them combined would be magic!

  573. Jamie Larbalestier says:

    Amazing delay!

  574. Dan Leary says:

    Quato says, “Open Your Mind!”

  575. Stephen Prentiss says:

    Joel is making some of the craziest pedals right now. I love all the awesome stuff he’s been coming out with. Especially at such a small size.

  576. Kirk Eriksen says:

    I love the way this unit covers nearly everything a guitarist looks for in an analog delay, while retaining an all analog signal path. I also think the design is attractive and pedalboard friendly. I would like to link two of these for expansive soundscape design.

  577. Daan Bossink says:

    In my opinion this is the best sounding delay one can get, it may not be as versatile as a Strymon Timeline. The sound and authentic feel make up for that, keep up the lovely reviews Gabriel.
    Thanks!

  578. Steven QUEEN says:

    Awesome

  579. It’s been a long time since I have been this impressed with a pedal after watching the video by Knobs. Would love to add this to my pedalboard, if only the pricetag was a little less pricey…

  580. Dip switches party!!

  581. Wow, Chase Bliss Audio have done it again ! Amazing !
    J’en ferais bien mon quatre heures de cette petite pédale :-)

  582. Saul Chavez says:

    rad!!

  583. Dmitry Shilov says:

    Small. Versatile. Powerful. The only one!

  584. Isaac Perez says:

    Hope to win this pedal…its got so many features on it.

  585. I have not gotten a chance to try one of these yet, but I can’t wait to get my hands on one! As an EE student, this is pedal is truly impressive, and a perfect marriage of analog and digital electronics. However, there seems to be one barrier that no analog delay pedal has broken. That barrier is delay time. I’m not aware of any analog delay that goes much beyond 1000ms. This would be really cool for guitarists who love to experiment with extremely slow music like doom and drone. Keep up the great work Chase Bliss!

  586. Neil points says:

    This pedal looks so amazing

  587. This pedal has been on my wish list for ages! Such fascinating possibilities! I feel like you don’t see a whole lot of soundscaping in technical metal, but I’m here to change that!

  588. Owen Keenan says:

    Chase Bliss are killing it. Sign me up for everything they release.

  589. Peter Cruz says:

    I love the features this pedal brings with the added dip switches. So many tonal possibilities!

  590. I have a Chase Bliss Warped Vinyl and I love it! Quality effects with great sounds, amazing features, and solid construction. I would love to get my hands on this pedal.

  591. I don’t love spinach but love this pedal

  592. Great sound and review.

  593. Nicholas Akam says:

    That’s pretty bad ass

  594. seriously, this thing is a beast……and the way it reflects lights from above bc of the chasis is just crazy awesome. sounds soo good, clear and pummeling. gonna become an integral part of my rig

  595. Nice one

  596. I’m gonna make some sexy delayed synth w this

  597. Richard Grier says:

    Sounds like a really nice delay pedal. I would love to get one o add to my pedal board.

  598. Shawn Mack says:

    Epic repeats. “I’ll be back, back, back, back….. “. Arnold would be proud!

  599. Douglas Ives says:

    This pedal is just perfect… Sounds amazing, with a lovely analogue delay… Does amazing things with the digital control… And looks amazing! Brilliant and helpful review as well, LOVE IT.

  600. Peter Teipe says:

    Really nice sounding analog delays from this pedal. Would love to add it to my setup!

  601. I have been looking for a new delay to replace my MF-104M and this is one that popped up on my radar. I really love the tap tempo feature but I’m also a huge nerd for dotted 8th note delays too. After watching a bunch of videos, this is in my top three choices so far. A friend of mine actually has one so I was able to play with it for a while at his house. It sounds great, not too lofi for analog delay pedal. I also love the small footprint it leaves on your board.

  602. Prabjit S Virdee says:

    Sooooo many comments!

    I used my MKII Warped Vinyl as an always on pedal to transport sound into another space. Whether or not I win this giveway, I’m buying one. I’d love to win though. Tonal Recall in really the most compact modulated delay. I don’t want JHS’ Panther or EHX DMM1100. I WANT THIS ONE!

  603. give me all these pedals i love it

  604. Clare Lord says:

    I thought I was done with Delay pedal GAS, until I watched this!!

  605. This would fit perfectly to play in my Jonas Brothers Cover band

  606. Joe Bertucci says:

    Not only a great sounding pedal, but it looks fantastic! Hope I win one…

  607. Chris Aguilar says:

    The King of analog delay pedals! It demands room on my board!

  608. This would be a trusted friend in shaping your sound for years to come.

  609. Anthony Childs says:

    Thanks for the review. I enjoy the sound of the pedal but find the max 1/2 delay time to be curious. I wonder what all those options could do with a full second or two of delay. Wondering what they’ll come up with next. I mean this and Spectre within a year, I wonder if they’ll create the mother of all octave/filter/envelope pedals…

  610. Sumptuous and delicious, hours will drift aimlessly away with one of these.

  611. Marc Brule says:

    It’s like melting butter on warm bread. Yep, I want it.

  612. Seth Oyer says:

    totally…. awesome…

  613. I need to get my hands on one of these stat!

  614. Tulio andrade says:

    Really want this!

  615. This is the dream right here. It’s all about digital controlling analogue signals. And presets!

  616. Nick Blaskovich says:

    Holy wow. Pretty slick design, and LOADED with features. If you didn’t, watch the video reviews to see just a glimpse of what this incredible pedal (or string of pedals!) can accomplish!

  617. Graydon Smith says:

    This is my dream pedal of all time I love everything about this so much. I really would cry if I won this!

  618. It gives really too much possibilities!
    And I`m not sure that it`s correct to name it “delay”

  619. Michael Garovich says:

    WANT! More than the other kids who want to win. I’ll do some things I wouldn’t be proud of.

  620. Joseph Bugg says:

    Holy crap, so lush! Thanks for the great review!

  621. Wow… Great pedal!!!

  622. I want one of those! Very analytic review and thanks for giving the chance to win one.

  623. Very cool pedal. It sounds amazing !

  624. Evgenii K. says:

    Want to wint this pedal.

  625. Unit looks and sounds stunning, need this bad boy to add smooth textured layers to my music … and #0001 would just be immense bragging rights!

  626. Angel Roca says:

    hands down the best analog delay out there. it would be really sick to have. self oscillation is awesome and love the color scheme too

  627. Nils Olsson says:

    probably the coolest pedal in decades.

  628. Has to be the coolest pedal name. Period.

    Also my favorite Arnie film

  629. GiuseppeCe says:

    It’s 100% all-analog? Yep this should be enough, but this is also a full fashinating device, really iconic relic piece. Only one flaw: it’s not yet mine

  630. I would love to win this pedal. It sounds amazing. Keen to try one out some time!!!

  631. Patrick TATON says:

    The best delay I want for my postrock pedalboard

  632. Great review and great pedal

    Thanks
    G

  633. Man I better win this thing – you made us jump through some hoops here! I plastered a picture of a delay pedal all over my FB page for heaven’s sake – that is going to confuse a lot of FB friends out there. Boy, it’ll be worth it for this thing though, what a cool pedal – I am a delay junkie, and I need this.

  634. David Ernst says:

    thanks for the great contest

  635. Ryan Shippy says:

    Very nice.

  636. I love delay. It’s the bras and panties of my guitar session. You never get enough. Apologies for the reference but it was the first thing off my mind and I’m just rolling with it. I use an original boss DM 2 a carbon copy, el capstan and I also have a kilobyte I like to use. I’m able to get the bright delay to dark delay tones reasonably enough and they all have their perfect settings. A couple things though that make the tonal recall truly set apart. 1. Analog. 2. Tap tempo w/subdivisions(the only thing I really need for something like this) 3. The dip switches to fully customize and shape the sound which is very hard to do on every pedal given the amount of tone control you have and sometimes the difficulty(like inner trim pots) overall I’m really into the tonal recall. I haven’t been able to try one but I can guarantee if I get the first one I’m not going to put it in a museum but I’m gonna play the damn thing and enjoy it. Delay has this amazing ability to shape notes that can seem flaccid and boring into a melodic and beautiful movie scene. Truly amazing. When I got my first delay pedal (DM2) I was just taken to another world of music i had never been. Never going back either. Thanks for the great giveaways and awesome reviews!!!

  637. Looks like it could be the ultimate delay pedal! I’m impressed by all the features packed in such a small footprint; great design! They can stop chasing now; looks like pure bliss :)

  638. Michael Burleson says:

    Looks like alot of hard work and thought was put into making this stand out above the rest. Definitely would love to add this to my board.

  639. Wei-Chen Cheng says:

    Analog delay with digital control is the king!

  640. Gary Plaus says:

    I love it!

  641. Robert Abernathy says:

    Thank you for explaining the history behind the components- Joel spent a ton of time and energy to put this together!

  642. Kevin Ball says:

    I’ve been Salivating over Chase Bliss pedal’s for a long time. They are a little out of my ptice range :(
    I’m really hoping this is the time :)
    Gimme Gimme Gimme (please)

  643. Roger Williams says:

    If this pedal sounds as great as it looks, I’ll take two please!!!

  644. Dan Anthony says:

    A dream pedal…

  645. Brad Zoeller says:

    Can’t wait to try this one out!

  646. Francisco says:

    That would be a very nice friendship for my lonely Bogner. I guess they would love each other and because of that I would be happy too ;¬)

  647. WANT WANT WANT !!! will use to imbue my music with sweet bucolic timbres

  648. outstanding, yes please

  649. Josh Miranda says:

    This pedal is incredible. I drove two hours to try this pedal out (And a few others) and I was not disappointed. Saving up.

  650. Great read, and man, what a pedal. That thing sounds incredible. As a delay junkie, I’d love to add it to the board… what a wave of sonic possibilities it can create!

  651. Adam Thomas says:

    Very cool, yet more G.A.S !!

  652. Rodger R. says:

    What a great, thoughtful and detailed article! I read the article before listening to the demos and appreciate the history you provided and the full disclosure of your part in the pre-release of the pedal. The sounds are lush and beautiful and haunting. I have a greater appreciation for the pedal having read the article and learning about what went into developing this pedal and the history of the components from earlier analog delay pedals. Thanks!

  653. Conor Madden says:

    I’m a big fan of the original. Arnold’s humor is my favorite part. This new one takes itself very seriously. That’s not good.

    The film, after a good start and middle, falls apart at the end. From the moment Bryan Cranston arrives on the scene, the deterioration begins — and I love Cranston. But the story has no convincing finish.

    Not a must see for everyone, but an almost-must see for fans of the original. It’s nice to see the way they’ve integrated their references to the original.

  654. Bret Alexander says:

    Beautiful inside and out!

  655. The sound of this pedal is great!

  656. Kieran Hogue says:

    I actually really liked the lofi vibe of the first iteration of this pedal, but the “cleaner” version is arguably much more usable for the average guitarist. I want to enevitebly run it with a flux effects stereo analog delay whenever that hits the market. The sound that makes will surely be magic!

  657. Jonathan Lundquist says:

    evvvvvvery Chase Bliss pedal is unbelievable! i would love anything they make, especially the Tonal Recall or Warped Vinyl.

  658. Morgan Bell says:

    This is one of the best delay pedals I’ve ever seen, at the perfect size to fit on my board. Need… Neeeeeed…

    Great blog, guys. Keep up the excellent work!

  659. Bob Engeringh says:

    It just does not get any better then this!! Looking forward to try one after reading this review and listening to the videos!!

  660. Roberto Garcia says:

    I want it. Seems amazing!!

  661. Jake Brandt says:

    Analog > Digital

  662. Gerald Moore says:

    Sweet!!

  663. joshua COHEN says:

    the best ever i think?

  664. Ben Brock says:

    I absolutely love this pedal!

  665. Christian Egedesø says:

    This pedal sounds amazing! And the opportunities the dip switches enables… oh my….

  666. Stuart Bond says:

    I’m totally rockin this! I’m looking to expand my didgeridoo set with a pedal board and FX and this delay pedal is top of my list – pure analogue bliss. I’ve gotta get one!

  667. I’ve been following Chase Bliss’ effects releases since the Warped Vinyl showed up at my LGS. Wish I could dedicate the investment required to get such a great effect.

  668. Can’t wait to try out this pedal !

  669. Jesse Comstock says:

    This pedal looks absolutely amazing! I’m really excited to try it out!

  670. Jack Murphy says:

    Yes please!!

  671. Victor Futura says:

    One of my favorite delays. I’m always impressed how Chase Bliss can add all those parameters on a single pedal and ALL are useable, no dial or option feels forced.

  672. Amazing!

  673. Deke Roberts says:

    I’ve already seen this pedal reviewed, er… elsewhere, on the ‘net, and my immediate response was ‘Gimme one!’ because I like the name. But honesty prompts me to say that I wouldn’t buy one, and if I won one I’d probably keep it purely as a collector’s item.

    Simply put, it has a lot that I like. I only know of one other pedal that offers the ‘trails’ feature, it offers a really fast double-slapback, and it’s analogue, to name the big three, but it also contains just so much of the things I hate about stomp pedals. I don’t want a computer under my feet, I want a box that will work if I tap it in my posey vegan sandals but won’t buckle under the weight of my vintage blue suede creepers (Which I wear when I’m playing with tall people to make me look 3″ bigger), with as few knobs and flick switches as is possible for me to kick and break with the aforementioned footware. And whilst I’m sure that a lot of people will appreciate the MIDI feature, I object to paying for it because I don’t want it.

    On its basic feature, echo, the thing you’re actually buying it for, it seems to lag behind the Vox Double Decca, the Nux Time Core, and Marshall’s Echohead (One of the pedals that I had stolen which I, er, may have mentioned before somewhere, may Groundhog Day fall on Hallowe’en for the perpetrator etc. etc…). It’s saving graces appear to be its noise free operation, and the grunch it can generate when you twiddle the tone knob down. The gigs I do I doubt anyone would even notice.

    So I’m left here wondering whether I should just post this and not bother with putting the picture on Facebook, thereby disqualifying myself from the compo, particularly since I don’t have an FB account as far as most people are concerned, or whether I should post it anyway since this is obviously an attempt to further the advancement of the best pedals review site on in the internet.

    Watch this space.

  674. this pedal sounds lovely. perhaps shamelessly commenting here to be eligible for the giveaway, but if I had to make a case for my selection, I would say that this would be a welcome addition to my double bass w/ cassette tape manipulation setup. cheers!

  675. joanthan cummins says:

    Best guitar pedal company happening right now – period!

  676. Well, if it works as expected, you did put out the definitive Analog Delay Pedal…

  677. I would use this between the board and amp – it could then be applied to any/all of what comes out of my looper-array – yes, this is my pedal – so, I’ll wait for it by the mailbox –

  678. I’ve never heard it in person, but from the video an audio samples, I can tell it’s one of the most good sounding and great looking delays ever made.

    So many options and tweakability in a simple and small design, hope I win it!!!

  679. Kris Mulholland says:

    Spoken with too many guitar teachers and heard so much.

    Can only say this would fit my pedalboard extravaganza and I could reach the stars with the most pristine delays.

    A real requirement!

  680. Francesco Moriconi says:

    Well, it could be my only effect between amp and guitar. It’s so complete, there are so much features that you can be innovative and creative just with it. A wonderful pedal to wish!!

  681. This is a beautiful delay. Well designed and constructed and so lovely to hear.

  682. Andrew Dow says:

    Wow…everything one xould want from a delay!! WANT!

  683. steuart liebig says:

    i’ve heard it live and it was really, really good.

    talked to the designer and this company has some great ideas.

    so, i want.

  684. Mattson Coffman says:

    Gorgeous pedal & playing

  685. Patrick Huerta says:

    Are you serial? A numero 00001 Chase Bliss “Tonal Recall”?! If this were mine, it would only come out for recording or personal tweakage. Mos def NOT a gig pedal! Not even for my board. This is “Glass Case” gear. (In love). Just like Benny said in the movie, “Baby, you make me wish I had three hands.” Although, I suppose in this case, an expression pedal would be more practical. Love Chase Bliss! Love BGFX! Cheers and good luck to ALL!

  686. Looks like chase bliss knocked it out of the park with this one. I have always longed for the true sound of analogue delay with tap tempo and presets.
    I would love to hear how a this would sound through my kora (21 string africa harp) mmm one can only dream!

  687. Aaron Goldberg says:

    I’m super excited for this pedal! If I don’t win it, I’ll still buy one. Everything Chase Bliss does is incredible. Good Job!

  688. I have the production run version, but I love the lo-fi sound in the first knobs demo. If i could get another delay, it would be cool to get one of those

  689. Killer pedal. Thanks for the review! Would be a great addition, especially for midi controller users.

  690. Very good review! I’d love to try your momentary bypass performance trick!

  691. Fly Captain says:

    This seems to be a really good analogue delay…but with all the stuff it offers, I am a bit suprised they didn’t add an effects loop for the wet signal. This can be remedied easily of course but you need another pedal to do it.

  692. This pedal looks incredible. I remember talking with an employee at Guitar Center a little over a year ago about which were the best delay pedals. Strymon came up of course, and how they combined great sounds with midi programming capability and presets. But we also discussed the fact that digital delay pedal makers still hadn’t figured out a way to totally emulate the analog delay sound. “wouldn’t it be great if somebody combined midi capability/presets with analog circuitry,” I mused. About a year later. This glorious looking and sounding pedal comes out. Want want want…

  693. This pedal Total Recall is like being high as a kite everytime you step on it. Time and space is everlasting! Everyone should get atleast one!

  694. Harry Gann says:

    Gorgeous pedal, sounds fantastic, this would take over my board and never let go :)

  695. The best from the past meets the genius from now, this is a legend in the making in pedal land!

  696. I so want one of these. I think it would be a blast to pair it with an EQD Transmisser and my EF Blackfly. Maximum music destruction.

  697. David Ring says:

    It looks like the most amazing pedal of any kind. But two? Hubba. -‘d indeed, hubba.

  698. Max Dankevich says:

    I own Chase Bliss Gravitas and Warped Vinyl – and now look forward for this beautiful delay! )

  699. Alfonso Garcia says:

    Looks like this pedal is as good as your marvellous recipes! (BTW, good resource!)

  700. I don’t claim to be an expert in delay pedals, but looking at demos of this and other competitor products this one looks fantastic. I don’t own a delay pedal but I’d love to win this, after listening to my cousin use a delay to perfect his rig I was inspired to find one for myself. I believe it would add the final edge to my Tele & Vox configuration. I love your reviews. THANKYOU!!

  701. I’ve been on the lookout for a good analog delay to go with the current digital delay I’ve got and this looks like the current king. The tone in the latest knobs video is just amazing, and I’d love to get my hands on one. Really interested to see what they do next, a fuzz might be cool though.

  702. Ernesto Serrano says:

    This would make for an amazing birthday present! Ahhhh. Need me of these amazing pedals!

  703. I want to go Mars with this awesome pedal!

  704. Noah Hackbarth says:

    Hard not to be stoked about this pedal.

    Love pedals that are tonally modular.

    This one deserves some music just crafted around it.

  705. Tyler Hale says:

    I am no expert on delay pedals, but what I can say is that this pedal seems incredible. I love the complexity of it. I can definitely see some Radiohead inspired songs coming from using this. Huge fan of Chase Bliss Audio, would definitely love to get my hands on one of these!

  706. Chris Faricy says:

    There is Just Enough room on my board for the Chase Bliss Audio Tonal Recall. Please pick me as I’d Cherish this Delay above All Other Pedals.

  707. Send that baby to Canada, Im in the hunt for a delay, my Stiletto Ace doesn’t even have reverb mang.

  708. Daniel Molnar says:

    As an ECE/embedded software developer who’s very interested in pedals I instantly love any chase bliss effect even for the technology used itself.

  709. Sublime!

  710. Hiram Suarez says:

    Ok, let’s cross fingers this time. I would reaaaaally like to win that Tonal Recall ♥ Keep up with your hard work, guys!

  711. Connor Janz says:

    Oh Jeez I love this pedal…

  712. Patrick Huerta says:

    Just like Benny said in the movie, “Baby, you make me wish I had three hands.” Although, I suppose in this case, an expression pedal would be more practical.

  713. Russ Crossland says:

    The Chase Bliss delay is the cleanest ( to my ears) delay on the market with some many tweakable options. Gotta have it!

  714. Mmmm… everything Chase Bliss has put out so far is original and sounds fantastic. Crazy how much they pack into that little box.

  715. Ryan Musante says:

    “Okay Test Subject #0714, we’re going to have the machine here scan your brain for feedback on how to build the ultimate delay pedal. Think of anything and everything you could possibly want in a delay, and we’ll see what we can incorporate into our new design.”
    [After ten minutes of brain-scanning]
    “…But that’s impossible… That’s too many features. You can’t really expect us to put that all in one pedal? It would have to be huge.”
    “No. It’s got to be regular size.”
    “But how can we fit all of those controls—”
    “Switches. Use lots of switches.”
    “But we already have—”
    “Find room for more switches! Use the side if you have to!”
    “Can’t you just be happy with a super nice sounding delay?”
    “No. Everything needs to be controllable. Must satisfy OCD demon in my head.”
    “But it would take you two weeks to even scratch the surface of all those—”
    [Subject starts pulling at corners of mouth] “…two… weeks… twoo… weeeeeks…”
    [Richter takes notice from the hallway.] “Quaid. That’s Quaid!”
    [Test Subject’s head splits open, revealing Quaid] “You blew my covaaah!”
    [Quaid throws the dummy head to the group of scientists] “See you at the party, Richter!”
    [The head explodes as Quaid leaps to safety]
    The End.

    This pedal is really cool.

  716. William Gould says:

    The Tonal Recall would be the one piece that could finally complete my rig.

  717. Wow!

  718. Sam Say-Kapp says:

    Pedal looks incredible, amazing write up and review, can’t wait try it out some day. Good job best guitar effects and incredible as always Chase Bliss(Love Joel!)

  719. If I could just have this Pedal now, i would probably get rid of all my other delay Pedals. This ohne seems just perfect for all my Delay needs and it doesn’t take up too much of my precious PedalBoard Real-Estate

  720. Sam Say-Kapp says:

    Based on reviews and write ups, this pedal seems like an incredible addition to any pedal board. I hope to one day try out such a boutique unique pedal :)

  721. Jordan Gale says:

    I have an obsession with delays and reverbs. I love the DD500 and the Strymon stuff, but the sheer flexibilitty and genius of this design is inspiring. I’d love to get my grubby mitts on one.

  722. John Latartara says:

    Amazing pedal (s). Chase Bliss is one of the best pedal makers out there!

  723. I actually just heard about this for the first time. I am looking for my next delay pedal and this might be the one!

  724. Stew Guernsey says:

    HAL? HAL?…..I’m sorry, Dave, but my love affair with Analog Annie has produced a love child that’s keeping me up all night. I chased the bliss, Dave, and now I have this little creature with my brain and it’s mother’s beautiful voice. I’m sorry……Dave……

  725. dave jones says:

    me want (0_0)

  726. Marcello Sarmento says:

    Awesome review for an awesome delay

  727. Gregory Lauer says:

    My Goodness! Is there anything this pedal can’t do!?!

  728. Stefan Vos says:

    A pedal tweaker’s wet dream! Brilliant!

  729. Ben Butler says:

    awesome super review thanks pedals looks awesome

  730. Great review, thanks for that.
    The Tonal Recall sounds incredibly nice to me. It is a bit expensive but I think it is worth it.
    It provides a wide range of atmospherics sounds and it is very “musical”.

  731. Lucas Merrill says:

    There’s so many possibilities with this thing. I could fiddle for hours with it. All I need is to get one in my hands!

  732. Jet fuel can’t melt steel beams

  733. Quality review and pedal ! Thank you for that and for the opportunity of winning it BGE

  734. Wow! What a beautiful piece of sonic artwork I’m on a mission to mars now!

  735. Dimitris Vlachos says:

    The analog delay to end all analog delays. We found it guys, no need to make any more analog delays, the Tonal recall is the pinnacle of them all.

  736. I would really really love to have this. Chase Bliss for life

  737. I would love to pair one of these with my Deluxe Memory Boy!!

  738. Great review! Always wanted me since released.

  739. Erle Townsend says:

    The Chase Bliss Tonal Recall is one of the most amazing pedals I have ever seen. The range of functionality is off the charts, even by Chase Bliss standards. I will acquire one eventually, but if I have to save up for it we’re talking a couple of years out. Would absolutely love to win one, and to have the first one would be crazy. Thanks for the chance, BGE!

  740. Nice review of an even nicer pedal!
    Joel makes amazing gear…
    If I was equally amazing at saving up money I’d already have a CBACBA:
    Chas Bliss Audio Complete Board of Awesome!

  741. scott thompson says:

    NEED

  742. mike barlow says:

    Absolutely blissful. I want 4!

  743. It’s a thing of beauty….

  744. Wow!!! Deep space/Sci-Fi Fantasy adventures – here I come!!!!

  745. Appreciate the story between the pre-production model and the current one, I couldn’t find the info to why they changed it. The low noise floor really does shine in this one, and I love the hold function!

    Would like to win it!

    Regards,
    Daniel

  746. Want. Want. Want. Want. Want.

  747. Tomasz Litra says:

    I have played a Tonal Recall yesterday. Have to admit, the unit itself, packing, that box, little black bag, etc. it’s a piece of art. As soon as I plug it in, it was something different, fresh and new. Did manage to play like 2 hours in the shop, but there’s a whole world of undiscovered sounds waiting for me. Can’t wait for another trip, this time maybe longer. Greetings from Poland and Joel Bliss us all!

  748. Tonal Recall has such a beautiful sound. Instant magic whatever you put through it. Something about how the sound sways when it comes out of the pedal. A true beauty!

  749. Sirawit Khantarak says:

    Well, I’m now a fan of chase bliss audio. Gotta collect this guy on my board!

  750. Nathan Blache says:

    Informative review of a one of a kind pedal. Amazing.

  751. Charles Tran says:

    I’ve watched just about every review of this pedal and I can safely say it’s on the top of my want list. The only barrier now is the price! I may need to shed some old gear to pick this guy up… OR maybe Best Guitar Effects can hook a brother up?!?

  752. This pedal really is bliss.

  753. This would be PERFECT in front of my digital delay- just the sound I’m looking for!

  754. Mark Farrier says:

    Absolutely fantastic pedal. I want this #1 TR so so soooo bad. It will be the crown jewel of my ridiculous pedalboard of ridiculousness.

  755. Viktor Eggert says:

    To Win this pedal would make me the happiest person!

  756. Tom Treen says:

    These are cracking pedals I hope it finds a way of getting on my board . Thanks for the really nice review too.

  757. This is one of the best pedal makers out there. I own two and a third chase bliss pedal would be awesome. Especially this one. Excellent customer service too

  758. I love every product Joel comes up with. I’m owning the warped vinyl and a tonal recall would be a great next step for the collection.

  759. Sean Masopust says:

    There is no end to the creativity that can be inspired by this pedal. Except if you don’t have it, so please let me win… :)

  760. GASing pretty hard for one of these. Arguably their best pedal next to the warped vinyl.

  761. This thing is incredible!

  762. Chris Vincent says:

    Best delay ever! Hope I win #1

  763. Wahoo, this seems to be the impossipeble pedal !
    What can you not do with this ?
    It seems to sound so pristine clean….want it !

  764. I want one sooooo baaaaaaaad!

    Chase Bliiiiiiiiiiiiis!

  765. Love the pedal(s) from Chase Bliss, Joel is a great guy as well! TONAL RECALL!!

  766. Nick Kudrys says:

    Dope

  767. Excellent review! Would love to win this pedal!

  768. Great company! And by far one of the coolest delay pedals to come out in the last 10 years!

  769. RICHARD HEMSLEY says:

    This pedal does it all …….simply a MUST HAVE pedal

  770. hi i’m justin & i’m addicted to little electronic boxes… the first step is admitting you have a problem. i will get this pedal someday somehow.

  771. marc-antoine pelletier says:

    I don’t own an analog delay and this piece of wonder seems to deliver every bit of anything you could ask

  772. deheuvels says:

    another to chase

  773. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Chase Bliss. Joel is a great guy and this is a magnificent pedalhope to win‼️

  774. Cleamon Jones says:

    So many features packed in this little box. Long live Chase Bliss!!!

  775. Man, if I had this pedal I wouldn’t need another delay for at least a week…

  776. Dan Booth says:

    Would love to win this!!!

  777. Dan Klepner says:

    Never had an analog delay before. It’s got a really warm, organic character to it. Would love to have one!

  778. Cory Schibler says:

    Heard this on That Pedal Show and would love to own one.

  779. I really like how Chase Bliss incorporates analog with digital. You get the analog sound with the digital benefits like midi. Having the option of having short or long delay times is pretty effective especially with the midi because you can get something like a slapback with one part of the song while going to the next part and switching via midi to a long delay with beautiful modulation. Sometimes you have to have another pedal like the Walrus Audio Julia to get a nice modulation but with including some of the characteristics of the Warped Vinyl you wouldn’t need a seperate pedal to achieve a nice modulation to the delay, true analog sound. With the dip switches on the back it unleashes the possibilities of the sounds you can make. With the options of changing something small as ramping rate, depth, mix, & regen it should be impossible to find the sound that you are looking for. Sometimes you are looking for a delay that will cut off when you turn off the pedal but sometimes you need the trails to carry on for a nice melodic accent. The option of hold button increases your options for creativity of some nice melodic melodies. Now to the technical side, the midi is incredible. It increases the possibility of presets. No more bending down breaking your back in between songs to change the knobs for the next song. If you have multiple time based effects like the Tonal Recall, TimeLine and a Red Mountain Tremolo, you can connect all three to something like the Selah Effects Quartz V2 to keep them on the same time with out having to tap the tempo individually on each pedal.

    One thing I would change is having the possibility of making it stereo. Today a lot of people use their rigs in stereo so making that an option would open up more ways to use it for people in their rigs. Other then that I dont really see anything to really improve. I would totally use this with my TimeLine. Yes the TimeLine is a great delay pedal but you can never go wrong with the classic analog delay sound.

  780. Ian Felchlin says:

    This thing looks unreal. The level of delay capabilities in it is magic. I’ve tried all the big box delays and this thing’s demo videos leave me drooling!

  781. Blake wetsel says:

    Seriously love this pedal. I played a demo in Austin and could play it with all kinds of genres. I play worship/country/rock. Great sounds from this and a 5 star rating overal!

  782. Will it take Strymon’s Timeline off it’s throne?

  783. Ronald Olszewski says:

    Man, the sound out of that is something else! Such a lovely tone out of it!

  784. David Mednick says:

    want bad. hope to win!!

  785. Bruce Rainier says:

    Wow if this is like other Chase Bliss Audio gear it should be winner.

  786. David Mednick says:

    want bad, Hope to win!

  787. Carl Martin says:

    Gorgeous sounding pedal!

  788. Roberto Morales says:

    I love this pedal. It’s the ultimate delay, too bad I can’t afford it. Great review by the way!

  789. Louis Kiley says:

    That pedal is too cray! I think I just fell in love. Don’t break my <3

  790. Great review and what a rad looking piece of machinery!

  791. Steve Comeau says:

    Wow. I just bought a Flashback-mini because of limited pedalboard space, but I’d be willing to boot it and another pedal to get this one on my board.

  792. If I don’t win there’s a good chance that I could develop a stutter p-p-p please don’t do this to me.

  793. Fabio Shkurtaj says:

    Does it also make breakfast?

  794. I love this delay pedal and already own multiple delay pedals. Between the ramping options, the trails and the subdivisions and the rest of the dip switches this is one extremely powerful delay pedal in a small confined space! I’d like to see how easy you can switch between the subdivisions using midi setups!!! Man I love this pedal and I tried to avoid it because I knew I would… get your GAS to Mars!!!!!!!

  795. Paul Hogue says:

    The multiple dip switches are a great add to this pedal.

  796. Nice,

    A shop near me has these in stock; can’t wait to give it a test drive. I never win anything, but entered the give-a-way anyhoo; gotta be a first time.

    :-)

  797. This is amazing! So wish I had one, definitely one of the best delays out there.

  798. Joe Hartmann says:

    This looks nasty!! The PGS review totally sold me on it!

  799. Jonah lane says:

    I would die for one of these

  800. Brad Wyant says:

    This is everything you want in a single delay pedal without all of the confusing menus. Simply turn the knobs and turn it on. Plus tap tempo. And what a complete piece of eye candy to look at it!

  801. Giuseppe Galato says:

    Paraphrasing The Beatles I would like to sing “You never give me your pedals”!!!

  802. The best thing in the world that can blow your mind and creativity. You must get one if you love endless possibilities and analog sound.

  803. R Johnson says:

    WANT

  804. This looks like a real dandy pedal & definatly will be my next one-really impressed with this one.

  805. Dalton Gahafer says:

    I would ugly cry of I won this beaut.

  806. It is damn unlikely that i could be this lucky. But if you don’t try right? Have to say Chase Bliss Audio is quickly overshadowing the other pedal makers i have on my board. Seriously beautiful sounds. This would find a happy home with me.

  807. I really want a Tonal Recall because it would be the only delay I would need to use in most of the situations I play right now.

    With the midi and overall options, it is crazy.

  808. jose araujo says:

    and without further delay…

  809. jose araujo says:

    and without further delay…

  810. Joel Nathanael says:

    Truly innovative piece of kit here. I’d love to add it to my bass rig.

  811. Patrick Appelman says:

    You can really tell that Joel put a lot of thought and attention to detail into the Tonal Recall. There are so many options available with this pedal to dial in that perfect sound, modulation waveforms, and even midi control. As a musician who is constantly in search of new tone possibilities, this is a must have!

  812. There’s so much i would do with this pedal. Namely, I would probably feature the hold oscillation function at the end or beginning of my band’s tunes. I love delay and have been looking for a new delay with a smaller footprint than my Boss DD20. This would be fitting.

  813. Mike Harris says:

    So many good sounds in this little box!

  814. Brandon 'Stormbringer' Arnold says:

    Always looking to try out new delays!

  815. Alec Carper says:

    Would love to experiment more with the mm 3005 chips! I don’t own a pedal with the reissued chips..

  816. nicosonic says:

    awesome delay !

  817. John Inge Melve Ellingsaeter says:

    This pedal has a world of tonal possibilities. It would probably be an endless source of inspiration and creativity. I can’t think of any genre/gig where you couldn’t make use of it really.
    Wert well executed!

  818. I absolutely CANNOT wait to get this on my board! Chase Bliss never disappoints.

  819. emilio alberto quel says:

    Inceíble montón de controles!!

  820. Travis Hill says:

    Never enough delay! (and since recently selling off most of my gear, I could really use this little beast)

  821. I’m not saying my life would be complete with this pedal, but…oh wait, I am saying that!

  822. Roy Donkin says:

    I love analog delays… and this one seems to have it all

  823. Chris Davies says:

    want this, big time.

  824. Looks like a rrrreally good pedal with a ton of options. That’s very nice!

    …BUT…

    1. designing a pedal with a toggle switch just mm away from a foot switch is NEVER a good idea and makes such pedals simply useless in a live situation …and also a huge pain in the ass in the studio.

    2. Having the two foot switches this near to each other (+ the toggle in between) makes it even more unusable.

    I get it: Guys who build pedals are rarely practicing musicians but this should be a known no-go even among non musicians/pedal designers. …So please IF you design a super nice pedal (and I bet it’s not cheap) let us USE them!!

    Just saying…Nevertheless I would like to have one! ; )

  825. Andrew Amado says:

    Probably one of the juiciest of analog delay to be made in the last years, would definitely like to have one in my pedal collection!

  826. Leon Goodenough says:

    Love the buffered bypass with tails option!

  827. Alexandre G says:

    That’s what i’m talking about!
    Need this one bad…

  828. Amo Green says:

    WoW – Would Love To Win One – Hint Hint .
    ..

  829. Cody Hyke says:

    I love the capabilities vs the board footprint. Going to have plenty of space for more pedals 8)

  830. pure bliss

  831. Xavieronassis says:

    I must have this.

  832. Donald Jenkins says:

    Amazing pedal, would be an awesome addition to my board!

  833. If I am not me then who the hell am I?

  834. Kenneth Patrick says:

    Great review of an amazing pedal and company. Yall should support Chase Bliss no matter what, even if we dont win. They make some amazing pieces of machinery that have virtually endless abilities.

  835. Edd Manges says:

    Nice pedal i want

  836. This everything I want in a delay pedal. From the analog BB circuit to the dip switches.

  837. Seth Okrend says:

    This thing looks and probably sounds amazing!

  838. Another absolutely awesome pedal from Chase Bliss..!!

  839. So versatile, you could get lost for days with the Tonal Recall. This is what delay sounded like in 1983, but even better. The DIPs and controls give you options that morph bucket brigade analog with tape and tube style delay artifacts, and almost soft-synth plug-in like modern slicing, into something really never heard before. You weren’t kidding about martian air. I love the cleans for ambient tracks. I’d love to pair this up with a radically messed up flanger for fun also. This is a truly classic pedal right out of your shop!!!

  840. Mike Hodge says:

    Wow, someone do the math to calculate the number of possible sound variations built in this thing!

  841. Dylan Hensley says:

    It’s hard to believe something with so many controls in such a relatively small box can be analog.

  842. Oh man, I’ve never wanted to win something so badly. Endless options, warm analog delay for days. does it get any better than this?

  843. I am huge fan of the carbon copy which has been on my pedal board for many years. This pedal could very well topple it.

  844. Evan Kostalek says:

    This looks like the new king of analog delay!

  845. I would use this pedal to create beauty for my listeners-I hope!

  846. Jakob Helgi says:

    Chase bliss continues to impress!

  847. Pat McLean says:

    #1 – so sick

  848. This is one of the most interesting unit on the market now. Pure analog magic :) I’m so interested to play this!

  849. would probably take awhile to fully learn the total possibilities this pedal can come up with, but I am up for the challenge!

  850. Manuel Cordero Rodriguez says:

    Wow, I don’t know if I could use it with many options, but I would be very happy with it.

  851. Jeremy Bowen says:

    I would use this to create some of the most amazing ambient soundscapes I can dream up! Would love to win!

  852. Jeremy Bowen says:

    This Chase Bliss Tonal Recall is such an amazing pedal. I would so love to win one! I sure hope I’m automatically entered since I am already on the email list! Thanks for this opportunity!

  853. Gokhan Macal says:

    Hello BGE,

    I always liked the experimental ideas. I wonder how it will sound if i’m stack this pedal with Earthquaker afterneath. This is really warm sounding and versitale pedal in a small box. For me only downside of this pedal is the price. I find it a quite expensive but i’m glad it’s worth of it. I really want this pedal so bad.

    Thanks

  854. Jaime Rodriguez Guerra says:

    Cool review and sound!

  855. Andrew Schembri says:

    This is such an amazing pedal. I can’t wait to get my hands on one and treat it like it’s my daughter with tea arties and bedtime stories

  856. Cândido Filipe says:

    For me, this is the best delay pedal of all time. I loved to have one, but do not sell in Portugal.

  857. Christopher Andreasen says:

    Incredibly amazing pedal. Could be used to paint an atmosphere with a single instrument. I love the tap/hold functionality and would use it to let soundscapes soar over earthy rhythm parts. There is no better delay pedal on the market, and it would complete any ambient rig, especially with the ability to respond to a clocking source. This pedal is incredible on every level and I have always dreamt of having one of my own!

  858. Love the design of the pedal. Can’t wait to try it out and play around with everything it can do.

  859. asarmiento says:

    sorcery! extremely GASing right now

  860. woooooooooooow!

  861. Great features. Dreaming of owning one of these.

  862. Brandom Romero says:

    I personally think this pedal certainly brings out a very unique tone to the artist who seeks a very individual and versatile delay tone for either an ambient sound or a very colorful twist to their playing, I’ve never had the opportunity to try one these out and hopefully I will be able to use this in my pedal board arsenal to mix such a sweet tone into my playing and use it to its full advantage!

  863. The dude from Chase Bliss in a GENIUS! His entire line of pedals so far have been so unique, stupidly versatile, and beautifully well made! If only I could afford one! Haha! Maybe one day!

  864. Felype Lima says:

    Great pedal! First ever possible replacement for the eventide H9

  865. Bryce Hamels says:

    Yeehaw! A fanciful pedal!

  866. what a unique specimen

  867. Keith Yamamoto says:

    Awesome love analog delays! Congrats to whoever wins!

  868. jason lutz says:

    I would love to win this!

  869. Love the sound of this pedal. Can’t wait to get one.

  870. Adam White says:

    I’ve had a lot of great analog delays, but the creativity that is possible with the TR if only possible because of Joel’s creative design. Thanks for the excellent review and the coverage of my favorite pedal company out there. Great job Best Guitar Effects and thanks Joel for great products!

  871. Would LOVE to try this pedal. Nice giveaway

  872. Fernando Almela Giménez says:

    Very organic sound!!! good luck for all and thanks.

  873. kevin lacey says:

    Never enough echo echo echo echo

  874. Mike herring says:

    Sounds so awesome!!

  875. This delay pedal has so many options that it is incredible.

  876. Tom Poynton says:

    It really is the most beautiful looking thing, my god

  877. I need to get my hands on this thing! Never enough delayyyyyyy!

  878. Great giveaway! Thank you for oportunity to have it.
    Muñón from sapain

  879. matt sateriale says:

    Man i would LOVE to use this to spice things up in my progressive metal band.

  880. James Knowles says:

    Hell yeah, rethinking it from the ground up. I always appreciate pushing the envelope with effects. Side note: I have the same initials as Joel Korte. :D

  881. Walt Farrish says:

    Great pedal would love to have this!!

  882. Salvador silva says:

    Definitely the best delay there is. No competition.

  883. Man, all these CBA pedals are pure magic!

  884. Luke Jackman says:

    I’ve always used my delay pedals to get a fuller sound its good to hear a really full sounding new delay pedal

  885. This pedal is definitely the best delay pedal on the market by far, love it!

  886. I’ve been really into this pedal in all the demos I’ve seen. Can’t wait to sit one on my board!

  887. Mel Jones says:

    Great pedal!

  888. spectre + this = probably sounds like a magical whale!!!

  889. I heard this pedal when it first got teased and in person at Summer NAMM. I’ve never wanted a pedal so bad.

  890. Digging this pedal!! The demos sound incredible!!

  891. I’ll be back!!

  892. Fran Prado says:

    Great delay pedal. A lot of posibilities in a small format box. Like that includes a tap tempo

  893. This is what I’ve been looking for! The missing piece in my pedalboard, AKA my life! Thank you Tonal Recall, for this! I need you in my life!

  894. Another great pedal from Chase bliss!

  895. Antonia Börner says:

    It would be a nice present for my brother, he is one of the kindest person in the world an definitely deserves such a nice pedal ;-)

  896. Jake Russell says:

    I have the Gravitas by Mr. Korte and it is a ton of fun. My guitarist friends are intemidated by all the switches and knobs and but entranced wiyhe sounds I’mgetting.
    I’ve been drooling over the Tonal Recall since I first heard it through Knobs and can’t wait to own one. I have big plans teaming it with my Caitlinbread Belle Epoch, one delay in the front of my chain, one in the back. This needs to happen.

  897. Chase Bliss makes some of the best pedals around…incredible sounding delay!

  898. Desmond Reddick says:

    Oh my God…I can happily see myself falling into the abyss of knob and dip switch tweaking!

  899. Impressed with this pedal! The Tonal Recall could really fill in the gap of a solid and artful delay in my rig.

  900. Really cool design, very versatile.

  901. Best 2016 delay!

  902. k.foucault says:

    wow ! i love it :)

  903. Nathan Huesmann says:

    This is the absolute best.

  904. Brent Johnston says:

    Great review of a very useful delay

  905. A. Willson says:

    I’m gonna recreate the score to Total Recall exclusively with this pedal.

  906. Jason Sanders says:

    This might just be the dreamiest delay in all the land…

  907. Matt Bennett says:

    I’ve been looking for a feature-rich delay for a while, and this may be the winner! Everything I’ve read or seen about this thing has been wonderful. Hopefully one day I can try it out myself or better yet… have one on my board!

  908. Richie Worrell says:

    I’ve been looking for an analog delay for years now, waiting for something with more tweakability than just an average Carbon Copy type of pedal (not that the CC isn’t great). As soon as I saw and heard the Tonal Recall, I knew I had found the analog delay I’ve been looking for. My whole belief with pedals is that you should use pedals that inspire you to play better and be more creative. I’m inspired every time I simply LOOK at the Tonal Recall – I can only imagine what kinds of things I could create if it were on my pedalboard.

  909. jon flint says:

    A very cool box! I’ve been checking out delays for a while to see which is the most suitable for me. I think this one is it! Cheers!

  910. It’s easy to gripe about the cost of boutique pedals these days. But I think the cost of the pedals produced by Chase Bliss Audio are utterly reasonable given the very high quality of the design and components. It’s likely the Tonal Recall can spark both endless creativity and yet be ‘too much pedal’ at the same time. I mean, look at all of those toggle switches! Still, if you like to experiment and can be patient with one pedal at a time, this one just seems flat out amazing. And what a great contest to boot. Fingers crossed…

  911. This is literally my dream delay! This college student would love to win, because I certainly don’t have the enough spare change to buy one! :)

  912. James Alexander Thain says:

    Would love to try this delay out to replace my dm-2

  913. Amazing

  914. Patrick Redford says:

    It’s great to see builders like Joel bringing new tech to old effects, would love to get my hands on those dip switches.

  915. Tom Mycock says:

    This is exactly the pedal that I need.

  916. Kitty Lang says:

    Seems to be everybodies favourite pedal at the minute, must find one to try

  917. Yowza!

  918. Such a possibility box! I’ve got a vintage BBD delay that I love, but even if I crank the lid to misbias it, i cannot get such a range of possibilities. And those sounds . . .

  919. I have one but I should add one more! Stacked tonal recalls must be awesome.

  920. Jose Amarillo says:

    Awesome tone for this analog delay toolbox.

  921. Jose Amarillo says:

    Analog delay toolbox with awesome tone

  922. Zach Zook says:

    While, I’ve geeked out on this pedal for the past few months, this article and the new KNOBS demo has me reeling all over again. I didn’t know about the big differences between the production model and the current model so that was pretty enlightening. This was, by far the most in depth review that I’ve read and I thoroughly enjoyed it at work yesterday. I love analog delay and CBA is the best company to be forging ahead with new territory.

  923. Albert Chiochon says:

    WOW what a pedal,

  924. I want this pedal more than anything.

  925. Rick Molyneux says:

    It’s a “Monet” on ones pedalboard.

  926. I’ve been looking for a sweet delay, I’m definitely gonna have to get one of these!

  927. Wolfgang Schneider says:

    I really like the half digital, half analog approach!

  928. Peter Homoki says:

    very nice delay pedal

  929. Outstanding delay pedal from the kings of modulation effects, with stunning set of controls, open for thousands of crazy ideas.

  930. I want this so bad!

  931. Man, this gonna be the most epic delay of all time. I dream of it every night… just sayin’…

  932. Oof I want one for my drone set up.

  933. Stanislav Evmeshkin says:

    Just awesome pedal!!!

  934. render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s

  935. ron grande says:

    sweet pedal – did it twice on twitter once right, once wrong and couldn’t get it to work of FB.

  936. OMG … I need it …

  937. Jack Hansen says:

    I’ve literally been looking all over trying to find a a good tap delay pedal and this is one at the top of my list. Shout out to Best Guitar Effects cause I hope I win this one!

  938. I am so in love with this pedal, and so broke!!! Pick me please!!!!!

  939. Yeeees Knobs does the best demos.

  940. Gwenael GAUDIN says:

    Best delay pedal ever!!

  941. Stephen Bier says:

    This would easily be the most interesting analogue delay on the market in my view. The feature set and range of sounds far exceeds the other options on the market.

  942. I would love to have anything from Chase Bliss on my board!

  943. Michael Lee says:

    So much detail in such a compact package.

  944. Joaquin Galarza says:

    Interesante el concepto de tener una perilla que controle mas de un parametro , sin la necesidad de ser 100% digital (como el timeline), horas y horas deberian pasar para poder aprenderlo a usar bien. Yo no uso MIDI ( no se como ), asi que ese seria mi unico impedimento si lo tuviera. Cambiando de tema , es impresionante como se mezcla lo mejor de 2 mundos ( analogico y digital), realmente si se puede tener un equilibrio entre estos 2 mundos.

    A mi realmente no me da mucha confianza el uso de los chip Xvive, pues a los menos en mi pais (Ecuador), esa marca tiene productos de mala calidad.
    Salvo eso al pedal le doy un 9.2/10, es muy caro para un bolsillo que aun debe depender de sus padres como yo.

  945. Bill Plank says:

    Amazing sounding pedal!

  946. steven head says:

    Incredible pedal from one of my favorite pedal makers!

  947. Brandon Walker says:

    Wow…. easily One of the most well written reviews I’ve ever read. Based upon this alone and not knowing anything about CBA I’d fully buy this. Who ever wrote this should write every pedal review ever. Good shit, man!!!!

  948. This pedal has a huge amount of character, I find it is not often an effects unit (or any other piece of audio equipment for that matter) is able to deliver both it’s purpose and more. I find often with pedals and other pieces of equipment, they tend to do ‘what they say on the tin’, which is great, however musicians/technicians tend to want more than just that.

    If you look at the greatest pieces of studio equipment that has been crafted in the past, from hardware processors such as the LA-2A, Pultec EQP-1A and Neve 1073, all the way to hardware synths such as the OBX, Juno 60 and the Minimoog… All of these wonderful pieces of equipment weren’t just synths or outboard gear, they were so much more than that. They went down in history and became the studio standard across the globe, this was because they had character, they had a distinctive sound that was recognisable and desired. They didn’t just carry out their purpose, they performed with elegance and finesse and amazed every person who was lucky enough to hear or use one. I believe this pedal does just that, it has an unmistakable sound which is truly gorgeous…

    Well done to Chase Bliss Audio, a brilliant delay and so much more…

  949. Javier Campos says:

    I love Delays and NEED thus one
