Chase Bliss Audio Thermae

Chase Bliss Audio’s pedals are the kind of effects that are most fun to explore with a night off and a nice bottle of red. They are deep, overflowing with fine-tuning features, and an transform from subdued to beastly with the nudge of a knob. The brand new Thermae harmonizing analog delay is very much in keeping with that tradition. It's driven by four re-issue MN3005 BBD chips, but the range of control is much more in line with number crunching digital units. This is a delay that will take patience to master, but even our short session yielded scads of wild surprises. At $499 it won't exactly be cheap, but there are years worth of musical exploration here.
