-C-mode only (light scheme)
-C-mode only (dark scheme)

Download the PDF. Then print it. Sticky paper is a good idea but normal paper will work.

Everything should be sized right automatically. Printed decals should be about 1 inch x 1 inch each.

Pull the left and middle knobs off.

Unscrew the nut on the left knob and take the nut and washer off.

Cut a hole in the center of your decal and place it around the left knob shaft.

Try to make it line up as straight as you can.

Put the washer and nut back on. Keep the decal straight as you screw the nut down.

If you’re using normal printer paper, make sure the nut is tight enough to keep the decal from spinning.

Turn the shafts all the way to the left (counter clockwise). Put the small knob on the left shaft and the big knob on the middle shaft. Both knobs should face 7 o’clock when you put them on. Turn the knobs left and right to make sure you have them lined up.

Finish by putting the corresponding legend (the thing saying which note is which color) on the footswitch between the word “delay” and the black rubber pad.

I have 2 of these pedals and use the S-mode dark scheme for one and the C-mode light scheme for the other.

I’ll use S-mode for slapback. Feedback (labeled “intensity” for some reason) at zero. Level (labelled “echo” for some reason) between 9 o’clock and noon. And Repeat Rate is usually a 16th note of the song’s tempo. The knob ends up being around 11 o’clock most of the time.

I’ll use C-mode for longer delays. Feedback (labeled “intensity” for some reason) between 9 o’clock and noon. Level (labelled “echo” for some reason) between 9 o’clock and noon. And Repeat Rate is usually an 8th note of the song’s tempo. The knob ends up being around noon most of the time.
