Andy Timmons’ mysterious sounding “Halo” effect is a modulated dual echo sound that has long been kept a secret by the tone wizard himself. Andy spent decades combining and crafting the sounds you can now get from the HALO. Notes from the HALO dance rhythmically, almost creating a reverb diffusion. Those notes are held together with tape-style effects like modulation, saturation and compression. The results are stunning. The pedal comes loaded with his signature delay tone and you can program your own sounds and save them as presets. Easily bounce between Side A and B on the fly, essentially giving you two delay pedals in one. In addition to Andy’s signature “Halo” sound, there are numerous other rhythmic delays including: quarter note, dotted 8th, stereo rack mount analog delay, and a vintage multi-head tape echo. Stunning stereo and pristine sound quality are further enhanced with controls for saturation, tone, and shelving filters that give you the ultimate delay pedal.
Use the Saturate control to add tape compression texture to your tone. The Tone and High Pass Filter controls your overall delay shape and mix. The Rhythm Mode selector delivers 5 delay types, including Andy’s unique “Halo” sound. Set the Time and Feedback controls low, and you can open up a world of ambient chorus and flanger effects. Run the HALO in stereo for incredible true-stereo imaging. Save your favorite combination of settings as a preset and the HALO becomes an incredibly compact multi-effect workstation.
The Sound of Two Delays
Use the HALO as two delay pedals that work in tandem, letting you switch between your main delay (side A) and an alternative (side B). With up to 1500 ms of available delay, set sides A and B for different delay times, then simply foot switch between the two. Our Smart Stomp System allows you to press and hold either stomp switch to engage tap tempo mode. Press and hold the alternate stomp switch for infinite repeat/hold. Each Preset bank gives you 2 delays settings for a total of 8 user-storable effects!
Use the Rhythm control to select between different echoes like HALO, Analog, Tape, Quarter and Dotted Eighth.

Master of Snippets
The revolutionary DITTO JAM X2 LOOPER features our cutting edge proprietary BeatSense technology, making it the first looper pedal ever to automatically keep your loops from drifting out of sync.
Our state-of-the-art algorithm is able to snip, stretch and compress each beat of your loop dynamically to your tempo while still maintaining audio quality. This means your DITTO JAM X2 automatically stretches the loop by a couple of milliseconds to make it fit the pocket – so your performance is always nice and tight.
For the first time ever, you can loop with your band in real-time without having to sync with a MIDI clock, letting you make it up as you go, without drifting out of rhythm. It’s like having an invisible band member onstage with psychic powers. Top that, Dr. X!
Built-in microphones and an included clip-on mic allows DITTO JAM X2 to listen to its surroundings, separate background noise from the rhythmic elements of your band and sync up.
Connecting the included mic under a snare or on a percussion instrument, leaves the job of timekeeping to your drummer so you and your bandmates are free to play without constantly having to stay in sync with a fixed loop!
Practice Makes Perfect
DITTO JAM X2 provides the perfect practice platform for getting those extra tricky intricacies locked down with the revolutionary ability to record a loop and speed it up or slow it down using tap tempo.
Simply lay down a solid loop and gradually increase the tempo as your skills progress or take it way down and practice filling out the pocket until it’s bursting at the seams!
Of course, DITTO JAM X2 LOOPER also features a classic looper mode like the one you know and love from the rest of the DITTO series for when you’re in the mood for some old school looping.

The Distortion+ delivers everything from cool overdriven blues tones to huge ’80s hard rock distortion.
THE LONG STORY
This little yellow box is responsible for those great distortion sounds heard on so many classic recordings. Set the Distortion control low and crank the Output knob to drive the front end of your amp for cool blues tones, or max out the Distortion knob for classic early ’80s hard rock tone. There still isn’t any distortion unit on the market that sounds like the Distortion+.
This pedal can be powered by a 9-volt battery, a Dunlop ECB003 9-volt adapter, or the DC Brick™, Iso-Brick™, and Mini Iso-Brick™ power supplies (not included).
The MXR Thump Bass Preamp is a tone-sweetening, signal-boosting, and altogether groove-enhancing machine. This pedal was conceived when the MXR design team and our in-house bass players discovered that the Echoplex® Preamp’s sonic secret sauce made for just as delectable a pairing with bass as it does with guitar. Using that circuitry as a foundation, the MXR team added a simple yet potent tone-shaping interface so that you can dial in the perfect bass sound for the stage and the studio. Crafting the sound you need is easy. The Echoplex Preamp circuit conditions your signal with a carefully balanced EQ profile, and this pedal’s tone controls let you take it from there. The Treble and Bass knobs cut or boost frequencies at 4 kHz and 40 Hz respectively, while the Mid knob cuts or boosts the midrange as set by the Frequency knob, from 250 Hz to 1 kHz. This range of frequencies was selected to give players maximum flexibility and minimal fuss when refining their bass signal. Whether you need to punch up a solo, boost your signal in a live mix, or sculpt more edge into the sound of a passive bass, the Thump Bass Preamp packs incredible versatility into an MXR mini housing.
If you listen to classic rock, then you’ve heard the wonderful and awe-inspiring sound of he Uni-Vibe Chorus/Vibrato. It’s one of the most iconic effects in music history and that’s not an exaggeration. Since the late ™60s, players pushing the limits of the guitar have used it to blow minds and reconfigure the tonal and textural palette of music. The geniuses over at MXR have just remastered the classic effect for today’s guitarist but in a smaller footprint while maintaining all of the gorgeously chewy, Leslie-sounding goodness. With its simple three-knob interface, you can dial up the sound to your liking without problems. First, use the VIBE switch to select either Chorus Mode”dry signal mixed with pitch-shifted signal”or Vibrato Mode”only pitch-shifted signal. Then, use the LEVEL control to set the effect volume, the SPEED control to set the sweep rate, and the DEPTH control to set overall intensity. The Uni-Vibe comes in a Phase 90-sized housing”a fraction of the size and weight of the original Uni-Vibe pedal”and features true bypass switching. Perfect for hitting the road with lush, swirly madness.
