  3. It's Yiddish for "everything and the kitchen sink" or something thereabouts.

    That's kinda what I got from the video. I thought there would be more to it. Next thing you know everyone will be labeling there pedals with "Hazarai" and selling them for twice as much.

    i was wondering that after seing some e.h. adds in all my fave guitar porno mags last month (i always read then free at chapter's)

    i think 'hazarai' is actually marketing department tech talk for "our customers are douchbags".

    i'm a user of e.h. products,a holy grail and a big muff,and the odd 12ax7.

    i know they are just trying to move stuff and make some cash,but can't they do it in plain non-hyped english?

    Wow that video was painful. I can't believe the bullshit he tried to pull...looks like EH is going downhill.

    I have the SMM w/ Hazarai and I like it better than the DD-20, DL4, Echo Park, and Echohead, won't take the spot of my DMM though.

    Here's a clip I made with it, using the 300ms+Mod mode.
    Gear used for the clip, Peavey Ultra 112, SMM w/H and 2880 Looper.
    Reverb and dirt coutesy of the Ultra.

    I personally love my EHX products, and for anyone to judge anything by the Gearwire clips is just awful, and EHX needs a new demo guy.
     
  8. Thanks for that clip. I'm super stoked I've got one in the mail. All reports say it's got a very useful looper on it in addition to some flexible and tasty delays. Was the underlying clean guitar in that clip captured and repeated by the looper on it?

    Yeah, the Gearwire demos are horrible. I like how the guy with the mic doesn't know where to stick it: in the dude's face or near the amp. So he ends up missing so much. And the guy kind of whips through the features. TC Electronic's demos are equally horrible and done by a guy who outright rips off Eric Johnson's Camel's Night Out in one of the demos and calls it his own.

    It may just be my luck. I had 2 other muff pedals before I found the 3rd (and it was modded). The first two were faulty, one of which sounded like crap before it stopped working.

    I actually used my 2880 for the backing loop (I had 6 more layers on it and just singled out that one for the clip), but it would be just as easy to have used the SMMw/H for the backing track.

    I've got up to 6 layers on the SMMw/H before it started getting muddy.

    When you get the manual read it, read it, read it, lots of different ways to use the pedal depending on what mode you are in, the knobs do some cool stuff that isn't clearly labelled.

    I've been playing around with a bunch of the EH stuff lately and I honestly have to say I have been really impressed with most of it. Not all of it is everyone's cup of tea, but definitely allows a person to really experiment.

    Has only tried the new EH #1Echo? It is a really sweet delay and work checking out.

    Here's your answer....haha not just "A whole lotta good stuff"

    The Hazarai knob is a rotary encoder that allows the user to scroll through the 8 different Hazarai modes. The following is a list of the Hazarai modes that the Hazarai knob scrolls through:

    3 Sec Echo
    1 Sec Echo
    300 mS Echo w/ Modulation
    3 Sec Multi-Tap Echo
    1 Sec Multi-Tap Echo
    1 Sec Multi-Tap Echo w/ Reverse
    3 Sec Reverse Echo
    Loop


    The Hazarai knob is also a push button. Push and release the Hazarai knob to load your preset for the presently selected mode. Push and hold to save your preset into the presently selected Hazarai mode.

    Edit: Despite that terrible EH rep, I may be buying this pedal (you guys seem to think highly of the EH delays)...or I might just get another line 6 dl4 *block logo of course
     
  13. I've liked all the EH gear I've owned over the years. I broke a DL-4 pretty quickly. And there's a great story I heard from another forumite on a different board where he was back stage at a Minus The Bear show and the guitar play essentially had a trunk full of DL-4s. He'd go through a few every month and just keep sending them back to Line6. And Line6 would refurb them and ship them back to him.

    Thats a frightening story but maybe he had the script logo dl4's (the ones with the switches mounted onto the circuit board)???

    I like the reps description of "Hazarai". The pedal looks like it was designed by spaced out hippies who spend all day listening to Dark Side of the Moon- now I know it actually is!

    Its a pedal with a sense of humour, takes a certain balls to get away with that - by all accounts its a damn good pedal. And it has "Hazarai"!"
