Gear Review – Line 6 DL-4 Delay Pedal

If you’re looking for versatility, this is the pedal for you. Though it’s a delay pedal, some of the settings on it can be used to create different, unique sounds. The DL-4 comes with 16 different presets that can model anything from analog delay to ping-pong delays. On top of that, this pedal has two other very unique features: the reverse and sampler presets.

The reverse option allows you to play your riff, and as you are playing it plays it back in reverse. Though that can get quite confusing, a lot of great musicians have used this feature to create some great sounds!

Another cool feature is the sampler. Usually, samplers come in a separate stomp box alone and it’s only meant for sampling. The DL-4 allows you to record a loop, layer, play the loop once and of course if you use your creativity you can take it further. The pedal itself has a couple of other controls that also affect the sound, such as the Tweak and Tweez knob.

To top it off, Line 6 has put in a tap tempo which comes extremely handy especially with delays because due to the nature of the effect, it usually tends to sound better when it’s on time with the song.

With the price ranging around $300-$350, it makes this pedal affordable and not to mention reliable. It is very solidly built and delivers a great response and overall performance every night. Many famous players, such as James Valentine from Maroon 5, Ed O’Brien from Sting, Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Troy Van Leeuwen from Queens of the Stone Age and many more use the Line 6 DL-4.

For it’s price, it’s one of the most versatile delay pedals you can find. Try it out!
