Add a dash, or a gob, of vintage-vibed delay to your sound with Seymour Duncan's Vapor Trail delay pedal. The all-analog design uses the famed bucket brigade chip for a warm, full sound with delay times of up to 600ms. Seymour Duncan also fitted the Vapor Trail with a TRS FX loop that allows you to process your wet signal through additional effects or split the signal to two amps At Music Experience we're fans of pedals with cool functionality - and the Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail is sure to impress.
The Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail is driven the infamous BBD chip, which was used in many classic delay pedals. BBD stands for Bucket Brigade Device - which, electronically, you can liken to a queue of firefighters passing buckets of water. Each stage of a BBD chip employs a single capacitor. Like those afore mentioned water buckets, an audio signal is passed from one capacitor to the next within the BBD chip - once per clock step. Slow down the clock and you get a longer delay; speed it up and you get a shorter one. The result is a vintage-sounding delay with its own inimitable sonic signature.
Beyond the typical delay pedal controls, Seymour Duncan also shoe-horned in a wet channel loop. This loop lets you add effects to your wet signal, like flange and/or distortion, to create cool and unique sounds. You can also use it to feed multi-amp setups, or plug in a volume pedal to control the wet mix on the fly. Of course, the Vapor Trail pedal is true bypass to keep your tone pristine when not in use.

Everyone loves the warm, smooth, ambient vibe of a Bucket Brigade Device (BBD) analog delay pedal. The Vapor Trail gives you those classic tones but with a TRS insert jack that lets you process the repeats through additional effects to unlock your creativity and redefine what you can do with analog delay. The Vapor Trail’s natural compression and treble-smoothing characteristics support rather than overpower the dry note… at least until you want to max out the controls to make ray-gun and spaceship noises. A flashing LED in the Delay knob gives you a visual readout of the tempo of your repeats (which range from 15ms to 600ms), and the Mix knob gives you everything from the gentlest hint of a repeat up to a 3dB boost. The Vapor Trail also has modulation controls to add shimmer and movement to your echoed signal. Use the TRS insert jack to send the wet signal through any other pedal or effect, such as distortion flanger, chorus, envelope filter or reverb – or use a volume pedal to vary the level of the delayed signal. You can even use it as a wet output to send just the repeats to a separate amp or signal chain.
