$249.99

The EKKO EK-1 Delay Pedal from Aalberg Audio is a premium, warm-sounding digital delay that can be controlled wirelessly with the optional AERO AE-1 controller. The pedal is capable of delays up to two seconds and utilizes three control parameters including Time, Level, and Feedback. The EK-1 can also be controlled by a free iOS / Android remote app that provides easy editing and the saving of presets for later recall. All the electronics are contained in a rugged, custom-made aluminum housing, while the onboard blue LED bars at the top provide actual parameter settings easily seen from a distance or in low light. The EKKO is powered by an optional 9V adapter.
