Last updated on May 26, 2024 6:22 pm Details


In this review post, we’re going to be discussing the EarthQuaker Devices Dispatch Master V3 Digital Delay & Reverb Guitar Effects Pedal, including an overview of its unique features.

Product Description

The Dispatch Master is a hi-fi digital Delay & Reverb Device that combines independent delay and reverb effects into one space-saving enclosure, so you can keep deep ambient echoes (or just a quick slapback) on speed-dial.

The best-selling EarthQuaker Devices pedal just got bester [sic] with new Flexi-Switch® Technology! Want to dip into ambient delay and reverb sounds for just one note? Press and hold the footswitch for as long as you use the effect, release it when you’re finished and resume your regularly scheduled dry sound. To use the Dispatch Master as a normal effects pedal, press the switch once to activate and again to bypass.

Our Verdict

Although not as versatile as two separate pedals, this is a nice option for those with limited room. Together, they give a highly useful range of sounds.

It’s a brilliant idea to combine delay and reverb in a single pedal. Because both effects share a set of parameters, utilizing two pedals would provide more sonic variance, but the Dispatch Master’s format has other advantages, and it’s wonderful for covering your sound with atmosphere and space with a single footswitch press.

Where to Buy

The best place to buy this product has to be Amazon, due to their competitive pricing and fantastic customer service.
