"powerful digital pedal"

The Zoom 508 is a compact delay pedal, similar in sound to the DL4 without the looper.  The pedal is a digital one, with standard 1/4 inch connections.  It is powered by either a nine volt power supply or battery and isn't rackable as it is a stomp box.


In terms of parameters, the Zoom 508 has a good amount of them to offer up.  You've got knobs for mix, repeat, time, modulation, and mode, which there are 11 of them to choose from, including the tempo tapping options.  There is also a switch for choosing between either tape, digital, or analog, as well as turning trails on or off.  If you're familiar at all with the Line 6 DL4, you can see that it has some similarities in terms of parameters, and I really view this as compact version of that pedal.  I've never had a need for a manual so I can't really say anything about it.


I have used the Zoom 508 with a Fender Telecaster and a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe amp, so I got a good read on what the pedal actually sounds like.  While the effects are definitely more than useful and are versatile, they do come off a bit too digitally enhanced sounding for my taste. 


For those looking for a compact digital delay pedal, the Zoom 508 will definitely do the job.  However, for those of us who are looking for a warmer and more vibey sounding delay pedal, this probably isn't the best choice.  The price is definitely reasonable, which is a main reason that I think most users will find this to be an attractive option.  If you're looking for versatility, Zoom 508 definitely offers that, but only through a digital means.  While Zoom 508 wouldn't be my go to option for a delay pedal, for those looking for a budget delay pedal with versatility, I'd recommend giving this pedal a shot.
