The new line of Fender stompboxes was one of the most intriguing surprises of NAMM 2018, so we were looking forward to the first demos. The Fender Mirror Image Delay ($149.99) is one of the units that got the most attention.
More info about the pedal here and in the notes at the bottom of the entry.
Sweetwater recently posted this video of it, check it out.
Unsurprisingly, Reverb.com and Tone Report were the first ones to put their hands on these pedals. Here’s their video of the Mirror.
Here’s another video by Nathan Shafer.
This is an atmospheric delay effect, helping players create depth with a simple slapback or an epic soundscape with modulated repeats. The pedal offers Digital, Analog and Tape modes-each with two voicing variations – and an option to add a dotted-eighth note.
“It’s a working, pro tool. If we could have developed a delay in 1950, we probably would have done that one because it’s just a good working set of tools,” explained Cotey. “It’s for a craftsman.”
There’s no denying the power of a good delay; ranging from subtle to smashing, this ambient effect is one of the cornerstones of modern music. The Mirror Image Delay brings this atmospheric effect to your rig, giving you the ability to create depth with a simple slapback or develop an epic soundscape with modulated repeats. Digital, Analog, and Tape modes—each with two voicing variations—make this expressive and inspiring pedal indispensable. It even has the option to add a dotted-eighth note for those Irish-inspired washes of sound. The delay tails continue when the pedal is bypassed, ensuring a natural sound.
