All Your Ambient Needs in a Compact Pedal
The EHX Canyon Delay/Looper is much more than meets the eye. Onboard you’ll find ten time-based effects, such as a Deluxe Memory Man-style analog delay, a reverb with plenty of control for matching your needs, a 62-second looper, and much more. And they can all be controlled with onboard tap tempo. The four control knobs are FX Level, Delay, Feedback, and the effect selector, and like many other pedals from EHX, the Canyon packs a lot of extra tweakability and tones under the hood. If you need a ton of ambient power, but don’t have much room left on the pedalboard, check out the EHX Canyon.
Powerful delay pedal
At its heart, the EHX Canyon is an incredibly deep delay pedal for its diminutive size. With a twist of the selector knob, you can choose from eight different delay voicings, including modulated delay, tape-like delay, and even a Shimmer setting. The Tap/Divide button determines the rhythmic subdivisions you’ll access by tapping out the tempo. And holding it down changes the function of the control knobs for deep editing parameters such as the repeated signal’s modulation, tape age, and more.
Onboard 62-second looper
The looping effect onboard the Canyon pedal is plenty for practice, songwriting, and even live performance. Simply pull up the loop function and step on the footswitch to start, stop, overdub, and erase your loops. And you can get up to 62 seconds of loop length, which is a ton of time for such a multi-faceted effects device.
Reverb and more
Electro-Harmonix didn’t stop with delay and a looper. They also crammed a great-sounding reverb setting into the unit. When blended with the onboard delay, this setting is ideal for worship guitarists and other players who lean toward the ambient. And adding in a quick delay with low repeats instantly calls to mind the slap-back tones of the 1950s. The reverb on the Canyon sounds so good, it would be well worth the price of admission on its own.
