We recorded clips of 10 different high end delay pedals in Taylor Barefoot's Studio in Brighton Massachusetts to show off the different flavors of delays available.
We recorded each pedal using an original 1959 Fender Stratocaster, Monster Cables, a Voodoo Labs Pedal Power II, and Alessandro Black 'n Tan amp, Royer 121 microphone, Shure SM-57 microphone, Shadow Hill Industries Gama 8 preamp and a Lynx Aurora 16 A/D convertor into Protools.
Minimal digital limiting was added in Protools to boost the volumes.

Each pass was recorded first with the bridge pickup, then the neck pickup. Taylor tried to play the same thing each time, but we didn't use any reamper or similar to get the exact same thing each time.
We simply set each delay to a setting (with tasteful modulation) that we felt sounded 'good' for that pedal, as if we were trying to use it for a song that had this riff in the studio- a real world application. There are plenty of videos that go into the details of each pedal, look them up!
Boutique Tone had the honour of hosting a sneak peek event introducing the world to the incredible collaborative guitar created by luthier Nik Huber and marine mammal scientist Richard Sears, founder of the world's first long term research program devoted to the Blue Whale.
Profits from the sale of this beautiful instrument go to support the programs created by Richard Sears at the Mingan Island Cetacean study and to the long term survival of the world's largest mammal, the endangered Blue Whale.
