Lee Ritenour contributed two delay TonePrints, one with modulation and one without.
The one without modulation, the Rit Ping-Pong Delay TonePrint, really came from the fact that Lee took a liking to our TonePrint pedals right off the bat - he loved how they keep his tone intact. For this stereo ping-pong delay TonePrint, Lee cut a bit off the highs and the lows, to keep things tight yet un-provocative, along with a nice ambient vibe. Whilst adding a bit of saturation for a nice warm and human voice type edge.
The idea for the Rit Ping-Pong Delay with Modulation was the same as Rit’s TonePrint without modulation: a nice stereo ping-pong delay that is warm and present, but not too 'in your face'. Lee wanted to add just a tiny little bit of modulation on the tail of the delay trails, which makes for a very subtle afterglow on an already beautiful sound. It adds just that hint of shimmer and life that is really pleasing to the ear.
The legendary Dean Brown also contributed a TonePrint, Dean's Retro Flashback. Dean loves the Flashback Delay and actually told us the one he has on his board is on almost permanently. Dean wanted some nice, natural tape-like compression that gives a great round sound. He went for an analog delay cutting the lows just a bit whilst cutting the highs a whole lot more, giving an easy-going, ambient vibe. Very Echoplex like, this TonePrint brings down the delays just a bit when you really dig in.
Completing the Jazz TonePrint package is a TonePrint pioneer: Grand Baton, who contributes with his Shimmer Delay TonePrint , a custom delay with a unique filtering that makes the delays brighter and brighter as they die out. Grand Baton also contributes with the fan favorite Grand Baton Flanger TonePrint – a musical and slow modulation which is pronounced but not overwhelming, perfect for strummed guitar parts.
