Chase Bliss Audio Tonal Recall Review – Best Analog Delay Pedal?



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.


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.


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.


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.



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.

    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!

    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’.

    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.


    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.

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

    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!

  52. Brandon LaPointe

    December 30, 2016 at 11:24 pm

    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!

    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!!!

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

  55. Paul Stewart

    December 30, 2016 at 10:40 pm

    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 Thank you Guy Fieri. I am one with the force, and the force is with me.

    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.

    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.

  58. John Bleeker

    December 30, 2016 at 10:14 pm

    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.

  59. Matt Bushyeager

    December 30, 2016 at 10:14 pm

    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 !

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

  62. Jacob Lightford

    December 30, 2016 at 9:41 pm

    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!

  63. J Howell

    December 30, 2016 at 9:38 pm

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

  64. Mikey Coltun

    December 30, 2016 at 9:29 pm

    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!

  65. Arvid G

    December 30, 2016 at 9:28 pm

    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!

  66. Robert

    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!

  69. Alexander Gustaw

    December 30, 2016 at 8:53 pm

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

  70. Albert Guevara

    December 30, 2016 at 8:46 pm

    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!

  71. Josh perkins

    December 30, 2016 at 8:36 pm

    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 .

  74. Josh Petermann

    December 30, 2016 at 8:29 pm

    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!

  75. Thomas Flores

    December 30, 2016 at 8:22 pm

    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.

  76. Joshua Flores

    December 30, 2016 at 8:14 pm

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

    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…

  79. Aron

    December 30, 2016 at 8:07 pm

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

  80. Cole Friesen

    December 30, 2016 at 7:50 pm

    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!

  81. Andy

    December 30, 2016 at 7:46 pm

    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!

  82. Levi Herron

    December 30, 2016 at 7:46 pm

    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.

  83. Steven Cipriano

    December 30, 2016 at 7:45 pm

    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!

  84. Lex Park

    December 30, 2016 at 7:44 pm

    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!

  85. Cam J

    December 30, 2016 at 7:42 pm

    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!

    December 30, 2016 at 7:42 pm

    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.

  92. Guillermo Alvarez

    December 30, 2016 at 12:09 pm

    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!

    December 29, 2016 at 4:35 pm

    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.

  121. Rachel Hart

    December 29, 2016 at 4:35 pm

    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!

  122. Paulo Barone

    December 29, 2016 at 4:25 pm

    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.

  124. Zachary Weston

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

  125. Jessica Raines

    December 29, 2016 at 4:05 pm

    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. 🙂

  126. Jacob Erickson

    December 29, 2016 at 4:01 pm

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

    December 29, 2016 at 2:11 pm

    I run a small label in Cape Town called Rootspring music. ( 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!

  139. Sebastian

    December 29, 2016 at 1:34 pm

    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

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

    December 29, 2016 at 12:54 pm

    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.

  145. Maxx

    December 29, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    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.

  147. Szab

    December 29, 2016 at 12:42 pm

    Lots of features on a small footprint. Love it!

    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.

    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.

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

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

    December 29, 2016 at 11:57 am

    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.

    I would love this

    Awesome Pedal!

  159. Kenny Sheldon

    December 29, 2016 at 11:44 am

    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! 🙂

  160. Steven Perry

    December 29, 2016 at 11:40 am

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

  161. David McDermott

    December 29, 2016 at 11:29 am

    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!

  162. Gabriel Hasser

    Sounds super unique. Do want.

  163. Francisco

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

  164. Jose Antonio Aybar

    December 29, 2016 at 11:12 am

    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

  165. Don Paterson

    December 29, 2016 at 11:06 am

    oh man i’d better start saving.

  166. Jamie

    December 29, 2016 at 11:03 am

    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.

  167. Patrick Kammerer

    December 29, 2016 at 11:00 am

    Oh yeah, love those BBD type things!

  168. Cameron

    December 29, 2016 at 10:53 am

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

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


  171. Laurent de couesbouc

    December 29, 2016 at 10:42 am

    That’ s a fine delay…

  172. Arend Raifsnider

    December 29, 2016 at 10:35 am

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

  173. John

    December 29, 2016 at 10:31 am

    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.

  174. Alex Thornton

    December 29, 2016 at 10:24 am

    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!

  175. Andreas Skeidsvoll

    December 29, 2016 at 10:19 am

    Smooth. 🙂

  176. Brent Baron

    December 29, 2016 at 10:17 am

    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.

  177. Brian

    December 29, 2016 at 10:16 am

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

    December 29, 2016 at 10:09 am

    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.

  180. William

    December 29, 2016 at 10:08 am

    Looks like a fantastic pedal!

  181. Stanton

    December 29, 2016 at 10:06 am

    I want one!

  182. Ives

    December 29, 2016 at 10:02 am

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

  183. Michael Berndt

    December 29, 2016 at 10:02 am

    What a delay! Can’t wait to have one of my own!! 🙂

  184. Hunter Borowick

    December 29, 2016 at 9:48 am

    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!

  185. Carey

    December 29, 2016 at 9:47 am

    Analog delay is the best!

  186. Bob ‘Skippy’ Blechinger

    December 29, 2016 at 9:46 am

    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!

  187. Tai

    December 29, 2016 at 9:44 am

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

  188. Victor O’Connor

    December 29, 2016 at 9:38 am

    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!!

  189. Jeremy Baker

    December 29, 2016 at 9:33 am

    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

  190. Christopher

    December 29, 2016 at 9:31 am

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

  191. John

    December 29, 2016 at 9:23 am

    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.

  192. Attila Mihálka

    December 29, 2016 at 9:22 am

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


    December 29, 2016 at 9:21 am

    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.

  194. Jasen Fontaine

    December 29, 2016 at 9:20 am

    Need to get my hands on a tonal recall!

  195. Coll Thomson

    December 29, 2016 at 9:20 am

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

  196. Joe Rios

    December 29, 2016 at 9:20 am

    Would probably make a good upgrade from a memory toy!

  197. Roy Donkin

    December 29, 2016 at 9:14 am

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

  198. Neil Anderson

    December 29, 2016 at 9:10 am

    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.

  199. Ben Gubar

    December 29, 2016 at 9:07 am

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

  200. Anthony Juniper

    December 29, 2016 at 9:06 am

    Awesome machine, total tonal flexibility.

  201. Alex Porter

    December 29, 2016 at 9:06 am

    We Can Remember It For You Wholesale – so there…

  202. Richard Hemsley

    December 29, 2016 at 9:04 am

    looks like an awesome pedal to own

  203. Nate Steckel

    December 29, 2016 at 9:03 am

    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.

  204. Justin Krampert

    December 29, 2016 at 9:03 am

    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.

  205. Sean Marshall

    December 29, 2016 at 9:01 am

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

  206. Cory branan

    December 29, 2016 at 9:00 am

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


    December 29, 2016 at 8:58 am

    This is the next step in analogue delays. BRAVO!

  208. Rob Stein

    December 29, 2016 at 8:53 am

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

  209. Dan Kucera

    December 29, 2016 at 8:52 am

    Looks like an amazing pedal!

  210. Ryan

    December 29, 2016 at 8:50 am

    Want much.

  211. Alex

    December 29, 2016 at 8:48 am

    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!

  212. Marc Brule

    December 29, 2016 at 8:48 am

    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!

  213. tom

    December 29, 2016 at 8:48 am

    love it.

  214. Honza Čapek

    Wow! Do want 🙂

  215. Jin Jung

    December 29, 2016 at 8:47 am

    I need some bliss.

  216. deheuvels

    December 29, 2016 at 8:47 am

    that’s a total recall that it is the best

  217. Christopher Trocano

    December 29, 2016 at 8:45 am

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

  218. Fritz

    December 29, 2016 at 8:44 am

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

  219. Sebastian Zurek

    December 29, 2016 at 8:43 am

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

  220. Dave

    December 29, 2016 at 8:41 am

    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

  221. Dave Belknap

    December 29, 2016 at 8:41 am

    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.

  222. Jimbo Riach

    December 29, 2016 at 8:38 am

    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.

  223. Vincent Garrett

    December 29, 2016 at 8:38 am

    Great review indeed ! Hope to try this pedal by myself 😉

  224. Jonathan Ory

    December 29, 2016 at 8:37 am

    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.


  225. Kevin Fanning

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

  228. Ken Wright

    December 29, 2016 at 8:32 am

    Could really use this in our church band.

  229. Darryl Robbins

    December 29, 2016 at 8:31 am

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


  230. Billy Roberts

    December 29, 2016 at 8:28 am

    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!

  231. Josh Kauffman

    December 29, 2016 at 8:27 am

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

  232. Stewart Guernsey

    December 29, 2016 at 8:25 am

    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.

  233. William

    December 29, 2016 at 8:24 am

    This is the best pedal of all time!

  234. Antonio Caridad

    December 29, 2016 at 8:23 am

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

  235. Mark Nason

    December 29, 2016 at 8:22 am

    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!

  236. Mike Harris

    December 29, 2016 at 8:22 am

    So many switches and knobs… My brain may explode.

    This is the delay I’ve been looking for.

  239. Lucas b

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

  240. Kyle Tippin

    I’ve gotta get my ass to Mars!

  241. Adam

    December 29, 2016 at 8:16 am

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

  242. Gil Grosz

    December 29, 2016 at 8:15 am

    Gotta love the Hybrid pedal idea.

    Great analog sound-check

    Digital Control-check.

    Cant go wrong with that

  243. Guillaume

  245. kevin sherwood

    December 29, 2016 at 8:13 am

    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.!

  246. Brian

    December 29, 2016 at 8:13 am

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

  247. Arturo Caissut

    December 29, 2016 at 8:12 am

    Everything from Chase Bliss is freaking amazing.

  248. Chris

    December 29, 2016 at 8:11 am

    Sounds amazing! This would really complement my digital delay.

  249. Seth Okrend

    December 29, 2016 at 8:09 am

    I’ll take it!

  250. Rémi Sève

    December 29, 2016 at 8:08 am

    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.

  251. Adam

    December 29, 2016 at 8:08 am

    More like Bonal recall. Hey-ooo!!!

  252. Taylor

    December 29, 2016 at 8:07 am

    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.

  253. Noah Barnett

    December 29, 2016 at 8:06 am

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

  254. David

    December 29, 2016 at 8:06 am

    This delay sounds really good compared to other analog classics.

  255. Charles

    December 29, 2016 at 8:06 am

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

  256. Matt

    December 29, 2016 at 8:05 am

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

  257. Travis Hill

    December 29, 2016 at 8:05 am

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

  258. Brandon Marsella

    December 29, 2016 at 8:04 am


  259. KeKe

    December 29, 2016 at 8:01 am

    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.

  260. Cody Rathman

    December 29, 2016 at 7:47 am

    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!

  261. john j pioli

    December 29, 2016 at 7:20 am

    Wow what a sweet pedal !!!

  262. Justin TenCate

    December 29, 2016 at 6:51 am

    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!

  263. Steve Comeau

    December 29, 2016 at 6:48 am

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

  264. Rob Stein

    December 29, 2016 at 6:45 am

    Still want it!

  265. Mario Manzano

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

  268. Nick

    December 29, 2016 at 6:28 am

    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.

  269. Rob Stein

    December 29, 2016 at 6:26 am

    Heard it. need it. Want it!

  270. David Polidoro

  274. Simen Andersen

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

  275. Zack Simpson

    December 29, 2016 at 5:34 am

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

  276. Kyle

    December 29, 2016 at 5:17 am

    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?

    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)

  285. Patrick Redford

    December 29, 2016 at 4:04 am

    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.

    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.

  289. JohnyVasko

    December 28, 2016 at 2:59 pm

    Great pedal and one of the best demo!

  290. Tim

    December 28, 2016 at 1:45 pm

    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!

    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.

    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.

  295. Nate

    December 26, 2016 at 3:44 pm

    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.

  296. Peter

    December 25, 2016 at 3:45 pm

    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)

  297. Hopper

    December 25, 2016 at 3:43 pm

    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)

  298. Jesse

    December 25, 2016 at 3:15 pm

    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.

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

    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.

    December 24, 2016 at 7:20 am

    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.

  314. Lee

    December 24, 2016 at 7:15 am

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

  315. David Outten

    December 24, 2016 at 6:14 am

  319. Elijah Johnston

    December 24, 2016 at 5:06 am

    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

  320. Bev Davies

    December 24, 2016 at 4:33 am

    Have seen & heard loads of brilliant demos of the amazing Tonal Recall pedal, it’s very inspiring !!

    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!

  323. Kjetil Hallén

    December 24, 2016 at 3:11 am

    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.

  327. Jim Lipscomb

    December 24, 2016 at 12:37 am

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

  328. Nick

    December 23, 2016 at 10:03 pm

    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

  329. Ian Swanberg

    December 23, 2016 at 9:59 pm

  347. Joshua Biehler

    December 23, 2016 at 3:38 pm

    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

      December 23, 2016 at 3:50 pm

      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!

  348. Gabriel Miller

    December 23, 2016 at 3:31 pm

    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!

  349. Jake

    December 23, 2016 at 9:21 am

    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!

  350. Morgan

    December 23, 2016 at 7:17 am

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

  353. Edward Cabrera

    December 22, 2016 at 10:36 am

    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.

  354. Chris

    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. 🙂


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

    December 19, 2016 at 4:48 am

    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!!

  371. Nikita Gedgaudas

    December 18, 2016 at 1:57 am

    December 15, 2016 at 5:33 am

    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.

  388. Akshay Nikumbh

    December 15, 2016 at 3:59 am

  391. Miles Cookman

    December 13, 2016 at 11:42 am

    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

  393. Jeff Brehony

    December 13, 2016 at 10:15 am

    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!

  394. Axel Tasler

    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.

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

  403. Andy Baird

    December 10, 2016 at 7:32 am

    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.

    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.

    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!

  406. Randy

    December 9, 2016 at 8:58 am

    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!

  407. Akshay Nikumbh

    December 9, 2016 at 5:02 am

    I really loved the sounds of Tonal Recall!

  408. paul ferguson

    December 8, 2016 at 3:46 pm

    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.

  409. Henry Reinach

    December 8, 2016 at 7:29 am

    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!

  410. David Sensenstein

    December 7, 2016 at 9:29 pm

    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.

  411. Tom

    December 7, 2016 at 4:17 pm

    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!

  412. Lou

    December 6, 2016 at 11:54 pm

    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!

  413. NMA

    December 6, 2016 at 11:21 pm

    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!

  414. Jeffer

    December 6, 2016 at 3:18 pm

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

  415. Brandon Pickel

    December 6, 2016 at 2:39 pm

    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!

  416. Jason

    December 6, 2016 at 2:16 pm

    Love the features and build quality

  418. Lou

    December 6, 2016 at 1:06 pm

    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!

  419. Jacob Adams

    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.

  421. Nunzio Annunziata

    December 6, 2016 at 9:08 am

    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.

    December 6, 2016 at 1:28 am

    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.

  423. vincent

    December 6, 2016 at 12:03 am

    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.

  424. Sean

    December 5, 2016 at 4:32 am

    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.

  432. Andrew Wang

    December 2, 2016 at 4:00 pm

    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.

  433. John

    December 2, 2016 at 3:31 am

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

    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.

    December 1, 2016 at 12:15 am

    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.

  438. Victor C

    November 30, 2016 at 10:39 pm

  439. Jeremy A. Madrid

    November 30, 2016 at 4:27 pm

    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.

  440. Matt Anderson

    November 30, 2016 at 2:19 pm

    I would love to try this pedal out!

  441. Kristin Ellingsen

  444. Ernest Jow

  449. Derek Stark

    November 28, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    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.

  450. Nathan

    November 28, 2016 at 1:05 pm

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

  451. Jonathan

    November 27, 2016 at 6:05 pm

    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.

  452. David Ramirez

    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 🙂

  476. Tanner Morgan

    November 20, 2016 at 6:29 pm

    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.


  477. Anthony Baccari

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

  481. Graham O’Brien

    November 19, 2016 at 9:43 pm

    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.


  482. Joshua Hanson

    November 19, 2016 at 7:00 pm

    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!

  483. Joe M

    November 19, 2016 at 11:28 am

  492. Michael Brunetto

  495. Thomas Philip Dück

    November 18, 2016 at 4:03 am

    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.

  496. Mo Gottschall

    November 17, 2016 at 9:55 pm

    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!

  497. Earl

    November 17, 2016 at 8:54 pm

    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

    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!!!

    November 16, 2016 at 9:20 am

    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.

    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!

    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.

  531. Paul Wichmann

    November 9, 2016 at 2:47 pm

    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.

  532. bertram D

    November 9, 2016 at 6:52 am

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

  533. Darryl Robbins

    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!

  536. Gabe Tonestoy

    November 8, 2016 at 1:49 pm

    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.

    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.

  542. Ryan

    November 7, 2016 at 3:02 pm

    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.

    November 5, 2016 at 8:05 pm

    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!! 😀

    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.

    November 5, 2016 at 8:19 am

    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.

  579. Daan Bossink

    November 5, 2016 at 6:08 am

    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.

    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!

    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.

  604. Prabjit S Virdee

    November 4, 2016 at 9:41 am

    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!

    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…

    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!!!

    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 🙂

    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!

    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.

  658. Kieran Hogue

    November 3, 2016 at 4:15 pm

    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!

  659. Jonathan Lundquist

    November 3, 2016 at 3:45 pm

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

    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.

  675. Deke Roberts

    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.

    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!

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

  679. Rejyna

    November 3, 2016 at 1:08 pm

    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 –

  680. José Contreras

    November 3, 2016 at 1:01 pm

    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!!!

  681. Kris Mulholland

    November 3, 2016 at 12:59 pm

    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!

  682. Francesco Moriconi

    November 3, 2016 at 12:59 pm

    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!!

  683. Josh

    November 3, 2016 at 12:54 pm

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

    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!

  688. John Haycock

    November 3, 2016 at 12:33 pm

    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!

  689. Aaron Goldberg

    November 3, 2016 at 12:33 pm

    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!

  690. Pedro

    November 3, 2016 at 12:21 pm

    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

  691. Nick

    November 3, 2016 at 12:21 pm

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

  692. Gurr Gurr

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

  693. Fly Captain

    November 3, 2016 at 12:12 pm

    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.

  694. James

    November 3, 2016 at 12:10 pm

    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…

  695. Kiml

    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!

    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!!

  703. Keith

    November 3, 2016 at 11:32 am

    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.

  704. Ernesto Serrano

  707. Tyler Hale

    November 3, 2016 at 11:26 am

    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!

  708. Chris Faricy

    November 3, 2016 at 11:25 am

    “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.

    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”.

  733. Lucas Merrill

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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!

  781. Braxton

    November 3, 2016 at 9:09 am

    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.

  782. Ian Felchlin

    November 3, 2016 at 9:09 am

    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!

  783. Blake wetsel

    November 3, 2016 at 9:08 am

    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!!!!!!!

  797. Paul Hogue

    November 3, 2016 at 8:49 am

  802. Brad Wyant

    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!

    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.

  809. David

    November 3, 2016 at 8:35 am

    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.

  813. Patrick Appelman

    November 3, 2016 at 8:30 am

    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!

  814. Cody Rathman

    November 3, 2016 at 8:30 am

    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.

  815. Mike Harris

  826. Kiryk

    November 3, 2016 at 8:16 am

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


    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! ; )

  827. Andrew Amado

    November 3, 2016 at 8:15 am

    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!

  841. Shawn Reese

    November 3, 2016 at 7:33 am

    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!!!

    • Josef | Javier Ayala

      November 3, 2016 at 9:09 am

  842. Mike Hodge

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

  843. Dylan Hensley

    November 3, 2016 at 7:24 am

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

  844. Trent M.

    November 3, 2016 at 7:05 am

    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?

    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.

    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.

  858. Cândido Filipe

  859. Christopher Andreasen

    November 3, 2016 at 2:13 am

    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!

  860. Todd

    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!

  865. Jesse T.

    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!

    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.

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

    November 2, 2016 at 6:51 am

    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!

  910. Richie Worrell

    November 2, 2016 at 6:40 am

    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.

  911. jon flint

    November 2, 2016 at 6:24 am

    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!

  912. Matt Stutts

    November 2, 2016 at 6:18 am

    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…

  913. Mason

    November 2, 2016 at 6:08 am

    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! 🙂

    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 . . .

    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.

  946. Joaquin Galarza

    November 1, 2016 at 7:38 pm

    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.

  950. Cody

    November 1, 2016 at 6:19 pm

    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…

  956. Phillip L

    November 1, 2016 at 5:01 pm

    This thing sounds amazing, which isn’t surprising considering it’s from Chase Bliss. I’ve been wanting to up my delay game (only ever used it for basic slapback or longer times that give lead lines a bit of oomph). I’ve always liked the sound of tape delay and have been looking at those types of pedals, then this appeared. The repeats of analog delays are a very close 2nd to my beloved tape and when you add a touch of modulation to those lovely darkening repeats of analog delays it comes alive in much the same way. Then you let Joel mastermind and tweak all the parameters the way that he does and provides the user with the digital brain for ultimate control of everything to the nth degree and you have something that is magical.

    Out of all the Chase Bliss pedals (which are all great) this is by far the top of my wishlist… amazing job sir.

    Oh and a very good review here and I have loved your many clips you’ve done combining pedals with the Tonal Recall(s), it plays well with pretty much everything and crazy/wonderful sounds ensue.

  957. Keith

    November 1, 2016 at 4:52 pm

    Great review! Cool pedal. At normal settings was a lot like my DM-2. But so much more!

  958. Kaylie

    November 1, 2016 at 4:36 pm

    Fell in love with this pedal instantly and has been on my wishlist since coming out. Haven’t heard another pedal quite like this one. Excellent article on it. Thank you very much.

  959. Jase Ginkel

    November 1, 2016 at 4:24 pm

    I absolutely love using my tonal recall for reamping. It’s so much fun to spin the knobs and make some crazy sounds! I can’t even imagine the fun and possibilities of having a second. Dual Tonal Recall for the win!

  960. Andy McCauley

    November 1, 2016 at 4:20 pm

    Hmmm. When you think, you’ll never need another delay pedal, apart your DMM and Ekko616… and then chase bliss come to the scene with this one here… Would be great to compare or better use with the afore mentioned…

  964. Josh S.

    November 1, 2016 at 3:46 pm

    This pedal sounds amazing. I could get lost in it.

  965. Jeffrey

    November 1, 2016 at 3:39 pm

    I played it. And played it. and played it.and had to make a choice with regards to my limited funds.

    But now that I finally got a genuine ’65 jazzmaster…there is no tonal recall to complete that near perfection. Not yet anyway, one day…

    There is literally no other pedal that provides as much fun, wonderful useable sounds and jaw dropping results.

    Cheers and big thumbs up to Joel Korte, pedalgenius (next pedaldesign a nice fuzz pls?)

  966. James

    November 1, 2016 at 3:36 pm

    That pedal is awesome as well as chase bliss audio products, the fact that the tonal recall is a delay pedal. Since it’s a sick delay pedal it would complete my pedal board significantly. One of the last pedals I need for my board are delay and overdrive. I’d be so psyched to own the Chase Bliss Audio Tonal Recall. Good luck to all entrants.

  967. Rodger van Raalte

    November 1, 2016 at 3:20 pm

    It’s awesome to see a brand like Chase Bliss come onto the scene in such a game-changing way. Joel’s first creations the Warped Vinyl and then the Wombtone really captured mine and many others’ imaginations and blew open the door for other pedal builders to push the boundaries of design. It continues to amaze me what he manages to pack into his pedals, functionally and physically!

    The Tonal Recall is the pinnacle of this journey and although I’ve had mine since the first release, I still feel there are things in it I’m yet to discover. That’s the magic of Joel’s creation, and he truly is a wizard. I cannot wait to see what he conjures up next.

    Great review @bestguitareffects – it really details this amazing pedal well.

  974. James Hansen

    November 1, 2016 at 2:56 pm

    Knobs’ demo of this was all I needed to fall in love with this pedal. Those sounds! So many useful, unique, fun, inspiring, weird, completely enjoyable sounds capable in this very unique pedal. There are lots of pedals I want, but this and OBNE’s Dark Star are the only pedals that draw out of me a thoroughly complex sensation of pure desire. I crave the Tonal Recall. I want analog circuitry with presets. I want analog circuitry with subdivisions. I want ramping! Receiving Tonal Recall #001 would be a dream come true (let’s be real… I’m working two jobs just to make ends meet… I’ll never be able to afford this pedal on my own…). Thanks for the review and thanks for reading this rambling comment!

    • Deke Roberts

      November 3, 2016 at 1:35 pm

      This review just demonstrates perfectly the dichotomy that exists in the world of pedals.

      You love this pedal and everything it stands for. I look at it and I think “Presets??”. I don’t want presets, I want one pedal that does one thing really well and then I want to stick duct tape over the knobs to stop anyone from changing them ever again. You get excited about subdivisions and ramping, I don’t even know what they are.

      But at least we agree that analogue echo rules!

      I really hope you win this pedal. It should go to someone that needs and will appreciate it.
