An feature-packed delay that includes reverb and E-Volume for controlling background echoes.

Rochester, NY (December 7, 2020) -- DLS Effects has introduced the EchoTour analog delay! It features warm vintage delays up to ~ 600ms, plus Slapback, Reverb, Echo Tone controls and more! Echo decays can be set to “get out of the way” of your natural preserved instrument, or set louder than the original creating melodic repeats and musical overtones.

The Echo Tone pot turned CW yields slightly brighter echoes, or CCW for darker echoes, or set reminiscent of tape echoes. DLS designed this product with true bypass, superior capacitors and electronic circuitry, and enhanced voiced analog delay technology!

*Many thanks to Alex Lifeson (Rush) and Brian Craddock (Daughtry) for beta testing and using the EchoTour!

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
