Catalinbread Adineko Oil Can Delay
Viscous echoes smear into a smokey, mysterious fog.
As we always strive to do when making something old, new again, we want to honor the old experience and expand upon it. Our ADINEKO is no exception: the murky warble of the old units, traditionally only achievable when the oil’s thickness is incorrect, can be conjured a twist of the VISCOSITY knob. The warm echo quality has an expanded range of delay time (TIMING knob), more so than any oil can unit could ever hope to achieve. The dual playback head is continuously balanceable (BALANCE knob) to favor one head over the other for interesting syncopation feels.
To get acquainted with your new ADINEKO, let’s plug it in by itself, without your other pedals. Start off with a clean sound from your amp.
The ADINEKO can achieve the authentic oil can sounds, but is designed to model the mechanical concept well beyond what was possible in original units. Let’s set up your ADINEKO for an authentic oil can sound!
TIMING to 9-10 o’clock
VISCOSITY to 9-10 o’clock
REVERB to the verge of self oscillation
Now you’re hearing all of the hallmarks of an original oil can unit. A relatively short echo time on two taps, a vibrato in concert with the delay time, and a reverb that sounds like low lying fog coalescing upon the verge of a self-oscillating resonant point. To get more of the vibrato sound of a Tel-Ray Deluxe Organ Tone, use the above settings but turn the REVERB down and the BLEND up to taste!
