Amazing Deal on the Akai E2 Headrush! This deal will NOT last, so this seems good to you, you got to get on it. The Akai E2 Headrush is a delay/looper pedal. I’ve brought this pedal several times in the past. Mike Sullivan of Russian Circles uses one, Chris Wark of Arma Secreta uses one and I love both of these examples of players.
For a quick example, I wanted to bring up the recent Rig Rundown video of Russian Circles by Premier Guitar:
Now, here’s another example. This is Arma Secreta. One feature that is awesome about the E2, is that you can have the loop running to individual outs. So loops can be going to separate amps. This is what’s happening here:
Here is the official description of the Akai E2 Headrush:
The Akai E2 Headrush Delay/Looper Pedal picks up where the award-winning E1 left off. This stompbox brings together 16-bit digital delay with times from 0.5ms to an astonishing 35 seconds, tape echo simulations with 4 separate heads, and a looping recorder in one convenient effects pedal.
In addition to offering digital and analog-type delay sounds, user-selectable delay options allow for maximum control of signal output. There are several realtime interval and level adjustment selections as well as feedback level for repeats.
Headrush can also simulate a 4-head analog tape echo machine and it is possible to set the spacing between the virtual heads to create complex multiple delays and repeats. The outputs of each of the virtual heads appear on individual outputs for ultimate flexibility when used with an external mixing console.
The looping mode allows you to record and overdub layer after layer of sound in real time making Headrush an unbelievable live performance tool.
Depending upon which mode is selected, the left switch controls the on/off and play/stop functions while the right switch sets the tap delay time or recording and overdub options. The LED display indicates which effect is in use and blinks in time showing the delay time selected.
Again, the Akai E2 Headrush is currently on sale for only $99 at Amazon.com. At the time of this posting there were only 6 units in stock. Usually when the unit count drops, the price will rise, so if you’re interested in this pedal, I would act now. I suspect that these will sell quickly!
