The Rubberneck first appeared on our recommended list for Analog Delay Pedals from September 2019 until November 2020.
When we reorganized our categories in October 2021 Rubberneck reappeared topping the rankings for Multiswitch Analog Delay Pedals where it remains today.
The DOD Rubberneck breaks the mold of typical analog delays by offering a plethora of options typically available in digital units such as specific controls for modulation and manual oscillation, regen control (DOD calls it rubbernecking - the common usage of the term is for distracted driving), and a built in tap tempo.
Players from blues, shoegaze to black metal have praised the Rubberneck's feature set.
The DOD Rubberneck was a surprise.
The reviews I encountered were so one-sided that I had to go to my local music store and try it for myself. From my experience with it after an hour's worth of tweaking, I couldn't find anything that an analog delay like the Rubberneck can't do.
Where other analog delays are more than happy to provide you with good tone, the Rubberneck one-ups the competition by giving you more control than you might think you need.
