Great features - too much hiss  (By Middleman)

I had the same experience as the poster above. Great for low volume playing but recording and live, fugedaboutit! Too much hiss and I tried two different ones. If you run your amp around 7 and your guitar low for country playing, it's really unusable. The search continues. (Posted on 6/15/15)
Faux Echo Tap  (By hollotim)

This pedal is built and engineered like you would expect from a Wampler pedal. It is so intuitive you really don't have to think about manipulation of the controls when playing. The only problem (like the previous review) is the amount of hissing on the trails. I also play at a church and find myself frequently backing off the delay time. I know this pedal was designed for that analog sound but the hiss is way too loud for most worship music. (Posted on 7/6/14)
Not for me  (By Cylon99)

I bought this Analog/Tape Delay to replace my MXR Carbon Copy (my 2nd delay on my board. First delay is an Empress Vintage Modified Delay). I wanted a tap tempo that the MXR CC doesn't have.

For what it does, The Wampler is a great analog sounding pedal. The sway and movement knobs are really usable. This would be a great "always on" type of delay. Good trails, great slapback sound. Very natural sounding. Excellent for most applications.

However, where it failed for me were two important areas.
1) When I tap in the tempo while the pedal is engaged and I am playing, the sound fluctuates (like turning the echo knob back and forth, you get that weird ambient effect sound). Most delays just change the tempo as you tap it in. Not this pedal. It messes with your sound if you happen to be playing a riff and decide to tap in again. Not usable in a live setting for me.

2) I like to do ambient swells sometimes. That means I need a delay pedal with a long repeat time and a long echo with a hot mix. Unfortunately (and fortunately), this pedal simulates an authentic delay so well, that it hisses (like a vintage tape noise) and sometimes overdrives slightly when pushed. I wanted a cleaner sound, not the overdriven color. I really like the modulation and sway and movement, just not a drive sound. The hissing the pedal makes is very unusable when I play volume swells. I play for a church and that hiss is unbearable in that type of setting.

If you want an everyday, always on type of delay, go for it.. this is a great sounding pedal! For the price though, I think I'm going to try Way Huge Echo Puss (or Supa Puss) or Diamond Memory Lane Jr.

Wampler Faux Tape Delay with Tap Tempo

Brian Wampler is taking the world of digital delay to the next level with his Faux Tape Delay. This unit makes it easy to dial in anything from a crisp slap back to spacey Gilmour-esque lead tones. The Wampler Faux Tape Delay provides a vast amount of dynamic tone making it as close to the real thing as possible without the fuss of tape or head adjustments.

Wampler Faux Tape Delay with Tap Tempo

The modulation on the Wampler Faux Tape Echo is like no other modulated delay out there. When you engage the modulation, it actually speeds up and slows down the echoes just like a true tape delay. The rate of the modulation is dependent on how hard you attack the strings; the harder the strike the more the modulation is triggered. This feature makes the Faux Tape Echo a definite must have for anyone wanting to recreate the classic echo tone of the past.
