Video: Chase Bliss Tonal Recall

Chase Bliss Audio has been on a winning streak. Every single pedal the company has released in its short life has been a hot one, garnering tons of popularity and acclaim. From the Spectre, Gravitas and Wombtone to the more recent Warped Vinyl, a vibrato/chorus pedal that honestly needs to be heard to be fully understood, Chase Bliss has been continuously on the up. Their most recent pedal, the Tonal Recall delay, has received the same flurry of excitement as their previous pedals upon its release.

And it’s no secret why. The Tonal Recall is an incredibly comprehensive, versatile delay pedal that sold out on Chase Bliss’ website with a quickness (don’t worry; you can still grab one on Reverb). Four toggle switches, six knobs, and a bevy of dipswitches on the back of the pedal offer complete control over your delay and give you the power to create sounds atypical of your traditional delay.

The Tonal Recall is built around reissues of the iconic MN3005 bucket-brigade delay chips, bringing the classic warmth of analog sound to your rig along with the precision of digital control. The basic delay portion of the circuit has tone, mix, time, and regen knobs to adjust and readjust your delay. A six-delay subdivision switch affects your tap tempo while the S L B switch allows you to choose between shorter delay, longer delay, or both, which provides a washed-out delay more akin to a reverb.

The modulation portion of the Tonal Recall allows for control over the depth and rate of the modulation and then gives you a switch to choose between triangle, sine, and square waves. Dial down the depth for a subtle modulation, or crank it up for absolute chaos.

You get 550ms maximum of delay time, but the ability to stretch that comes with the trimmer adjustment. The dipswitch board on the top of the pedal allow you to control virtually every possible parameter you could imagine with regards to your delay. Change them individually or simultaneously to get an endless array of effects; the way each parameter is adjusted affects the next, so it’s possible to play with the Tonal Recall forever and still come up with new sounds.

To top it all off, the Tonal Recall has MIDI control capabilities and an expression pedal jack, just to give you that extra ounce of control over your sound.
