The pedal lets you choose between digital and analog-simulated versions of normal, ping pong, reverse and reverse pong delay types.

Santa Barbara, CA (May 10, 2017) -- Seymour Duncan, a leading manufacturer of pickups, pedals, and power amps, announces the Andromeda Dynamic Delay, a digital delay that employs the same Dynamic Expression technology found in the Catalina Dynamic Chorus to let you control certain effect parameters with your picking strength.

The Andromeda lets you choose between digital and analog-simulated versions of normal, ping pong, reverse and reverse pong delay types, while Dynamic Expression can be applied to the Mix, Modulation or Saturation parameters so you can vary the intensity of these effects in real-time simply by changing your picking strength.

A Tap Tempo footswitch and a Tap Value control let you quickly sync your echo repeats to the song, and the Andromeda can also store your presets for easy recall or be controlled via MIDI. It has stereo inputs and outputs, and you can decide whether the repeats cut off immediately when you hit the Bypass switch or trail off naturally. The Tap/Presets switch also has a Hold For Freeze function that gives you a further level of interaction during live performance.

“We created Andromeda to sound amazing and solve a few unique problems for delay users,” says Seymour Duncan SVP of Products & CRO, Max Gutnik. “First, nobody likes paging through layers of menus to find key features inside an LCD or LED display, so we put all of Andromeda’s features and functionality on to the surface of the pedal.”

“Second, players want the ability to create different colors and textures with their delay tone. So we provided both analog and digital delay palettes with a lot of tone-shaping functionality that can easily tweaked and shaped to taste. And finally, Dynamic Expression’s ability calibrate how much effect you’re getting based on your playing intensity is huge. It’s almost like having a virtual engineer riding the effects mix for you. When players get a hold of Andromeda and see how much it can enhance their performance, I think they’re going to be stoked.”

With Andromeda, digital delay is finally given the same natural interactivity and intuitiveness as effects like overdrive and wah-wah. Delay is no longer just an ambient effect that follows your guitar sound - it can also become an integral part of your performance.

Rig Rundown: Adam Shoenfeld

Whether in the studio or on solo gigs, the Nashville session-guitar star holds a lotta cards, with guitars and amps for everything he’s dealt.

Adam Shoenfeld has helped shape the tone of modern country guitar. How? Well, the Nashville-based session star, producer, and frontman has played on hundreds of albums and 45 No. 1 country hits, starting with Jason Aldean’s “Hicktown,” since 2005. Plus, he’s found time for several bands of his own as well as the first studio album under his own name, All the Birds Sing, which drops January 28.

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

Advanced

Beginner

• 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.
