The Vapor Trail V2 appeared on our recommended list for Analog Delay Pedals from August 2017 until November 2020 when it was out-ranked by other pedals.
Like other analog delays, the Seymour Duncan Vapor trail has some high-end roll off. However, what really makes this pedal unique is the capabilities of its modulation.
A lot of delay pedals modulate their repeats subtly, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing in a lot of situations. The TRS send and return jack allows you to add different effects into the Vapor Trail’s repeats. This works with any pedal imaginable, including overdrive or even other delays.
The Vapor Trail’s LED blinks in time with the repeat time. It’s not as handy as a tap tempo feature, but it makes dialing the repeat times in with your band easier.
For the tweaker that wants to have more control over their delay sound while keeping pedalboard real estate to a minimum, the Vapor Trail V2 analog delay by Seymour Duncan is hard to beat for features and size.
Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Highest Rated Delay Pedals.
