Crazy Tube Circuits Unveils the TI:ME

Crazy Tube Circuits TI:ME

It features an all analog signal path with a high-quality opamp.

We are excited to announce our new compact delay/echo pedal inspired by the first digital delay rack units introduced at the beginning of the "digital audio revolution" in the mid-late 70's. These units had lower bit resolution and bandwidth compared to today's digital delay standards.


TI:ME is not your typical sterile and ultra clean digital delay. With separate analog and digital paths to get best of both worlds, this retro inspired echo effect will warm up your tone. An all analog signal path featuring a high quality opamp is used for the best reproduction of your dry signal. Two digital recording devices, along with carefully tuned filtering, placed in parallel with the dry path give you the most ambient delay unit you have ever heard. Think of a Model 113™ rack unit; the repeats are really musical, reminiscent of worn tape echoes.

The tap tempo function adds extra versatility and ease of operation while the tone knob will make the delay repeats stand out when needed or discreet for that little extra touch of space and ambience. Smart single knob modulation control adjusts rate and depth at the same time, from a little warble to smooth vibrato.

Each TI:ME unit is hand lacquered in copper color and one of a kind!

Street price : 189 euro / 209 USD

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
