Tim Mahoney, guitarist for American rock band 311 sat down with Ernie Ball to test out a couple of their new effect pedals, namely the Ambient Delay and Expression Overdrive.
The Ambient Delay features between 50 milliseconds to one second of delay time with a variety of tonal options, including slap back and extended repeats. Controls include delay time, feedback, reverb level, as well as a foot sweepable effect to give variation in creating a subtle tone to a lush extended texture.“I really like this delay pedal. It seems like a unique take on a delay, to be able to access that control with your foot while you’re playing,” Mahoney said.
The Expressive Overdrive includes controls for drive, boost and tone, with a foot-sweepable overdrive control, making it easy to go from a clean tone to dirty with ease.“It’s great having the drive adjustable on the fly so you don’t have to stop playing guitar while you’re doing it,” Mahoney said.
