I bought one few months ago along with the Tone+ and I love it. My amp sounds so much better. The pedal is pretty easy to use and great customer service from Randy Lone.

Thanks P G - I have heard good things, but better to find out off of their website - I really wanted to get one, but the Canadian $ is so low now I'm going to wait awhile - Is the Tone + similar?

I also use the Lone Wolf delay jawbone. I was using the Dan Echo Danelectro but experienced some degradation of signal path. The Lone Wolf Harp Delay does not mess with my signal. The TONE that I like is similar to the Chess Record recording sessions back decades ago. The Lone Wolf Harp Delay is a perfect match for this sound.

Hey Deacon - Thanx - I was using a Boss delay? (the pink one), then splitting the signal into a Fender Champ and a Traynor, and liked the sound, then my darn guitar player took it back as his new amp didn't have delay. I really miss it but wanted to try something that might be even better - sounds like this may be the one.

That pink one was a Boss DM-2. A highly sought after delay pedal!

Maybe I should tell my guitar guy that it sounds real bad with his amp!!!! But I notice he leaves his amp here after reheasal, but never that pedal - I don't think he will fall for it!! Does the Lone wolf have a better sound than Boss DM-2?

Jawbone, that's a good question. I haven't done a side by side comparison but have read that the DM-2 has slightly more presence (or treble). Lone Wolf has come out with a Harp Delay V2 that has more presence.

used the Dan Echo with a few different amps something always seemed not quite right and it colored your tone also, but after using the Lone Wolf Delay YOWSA!!! it's the difference between night and day, have been gigging with it about 8 to 9 months built solid , and it's what the doctor asked for

I have a Lone Wolf Harp Delay. Love it, but haven't played through others to compare.

Lonewolf Harpdelay v1 (regular) noticeably reduce amount of high frequencies in the dry portion of signal.First I've think mine is broken while international delievering, but Randy Landry tell me that it's ok (great contact and fast responce BTW). It reduces highs so it reduces feedback that it really feature especially for overdriven tone, but on the other hand it reduce edge and harp cut through the mix not so good. For clean tone to PA I lack some highs.So I don't want to sold v1, but I want v2 version too.

Do you note that high frequency reducing?

Does anyone try clean mic (e.g. 57) through Harpdelay to PA? I wanna buy me a carbon copy.

I have noticeable lack of highs. Otherwise it's great to overdriven amp or with harp attack to solid statr amp.

boris, what you mean is when the effect is completely removed from the mix, but the bypass is not on, then there is a reduction in treble portion of the tone? I have never noticed that, but I play it through an amp, and there is more than enough treble anyway (e.g. typical settings do not crank treble much anyway). Also, i play a CR cartridge, and that rolls of treble anyway a bit.

For what it is worth, I like the delay and use it almost all the time a bit, and crank it on the songs where I want a drippy, echo type tone.

However, Boris plays more jazz, not in a loud blues band like me, so our situations demand different things.

You understand me right. I've noted that sounds goes a muddy when I press LW on with blend all way down.

Different bullet cartridges noticeably remove highs from tone, guitar speakers too. Overdriven tone (no matter, amp or pedal, guitar or harmonica) does not need too much highs to avoid sounding raspy and sandy. So I'm happy when I play through the amp. But all my attempts to play without amp to PA gives me muddy tone. Randy offer me to change my v1 for v2, but I decide no to do that as mailing will cost too much for me and I'll better buyone another pedal instead of sending and returning.

I just interesting, does anyone have the same issues, but I note, that most of us use bullet mics to guitar amps and don't worry about it. Great product anyway.
