Seven FX “Presets” on a Flashback Delay

After creating a tone print for live use that was designed to minimize knob tweaking on stage I figured a way to take it a step further.

Now I can cover pretty much every delay/echo/reverb type effect I need with a quick turn of one knob. I’ve marked “presets” on the DELAY knob for different delay times, repeats and level, automatically suited to each type of delay effect I use.

If that wasn’t enough I added a cool “Fender Vibratone” (rotating speaker) effect which can easily be dialed in from OFF to slow to fast with very little hassle. Keeping the 3 options at hard left, hard right and anywhere between 10 to 2 o’clock on the dial. When playing live it’s easy to quickly select what I need on the fly when I have no time to be too accurate!
