Dakota County Delay


Across the Missouri River from Sioux City is Dakota County.

Always a bit behind Dakota County does a great job of repeating what we do.  The Sioux Guitars Dakota County Delay is an amazing sounding analog delay with warmth not available by digital.  Analog delays allow your echoes decay naturally giving you warmth and depth that digital delays just can't offer.  


We've now added a dry out, and a wet out to the blended out we always had, on this analog delay.  Now you can run wet straight to a clean amp and dry thru a fuzz before it hits the amp. If you play in a two piece, what if you run the blended to your guitar amp, and the dry to an octave drop to a bass amp to cover all the bases? What if in the studio you ran dry into a mic'd British half stack and the wet into a mic'd Californian combo and ran the blend to the board and you mixed them all down? The options you have with this little echo are amazing.


Jeff Dahl is known as a gearhead and a true seeker of tone.  This is what he had to say about the Dakota County:  "You've got a winner.  Really nice unit.  I love it.  Very smooth and quiet.  Easy to tweak. With Ron Asheton's old Les Paul it has a nice attack to the overall tone.  Adjusting the delay and feedback is super easy to sync it to song tempos with a really rich and warm delay.  I could see this as a great tool for leads and for rockabilly style slap.  And none of that cheesy, washed out town so many units give.  I also tried it with my old Washburn resonator, playing slide and that is probably my favorite.  You can get some real slimy voodoo funk happening.  With my Martin acoustic/electric, I set it to a real short, tight delay and it fills out the sound without washing things out.  Almost like having 2 guitars playing!  This would be ideal for and acoustic solo gig.  I also tried it on bass (Beatle bass and Fender Tele style bass) and vocals (Shure SM55 Elvis mic straight into a Vox amp!!) and got some very interesting and usable effects and tones.  Fun Stuff!  I didn't find any application where it did not excel.  As you know, I've never really used effects live but I like them for little touches here and there in the studio.  I can see this getting a lot of use.  Good one, man!  I'm sure I'll use it a ton.  (fave "basic" setting- 11/10/9/12 o'clocks)"

Danny Sage said this about the Dakota County:  "It's crazy.  I like my "other brand of delay," but your pedal kills it.  It just has more going for it all around.  I was playing it really clean, through the Magnatone with a Strat... it was really cool country/rockabilly sounding.  A lot of fun." He also said "last night at the Dickies gig, Stan Lee and I discussed Sioux. He likes the new pedal too, said he thought it was the best one you've done, I agree."

Cheetah Chrome just got it when he said, "Amazing so far!  Haven't had a chance to really play with it, but so far you have another winner!"


Sylvain Sylvain of the New York Dolls  said "It sounds really cool the level knob can deliver some nasty ass over drive...I'm having lots of fun with this honey.  Wow!"


Wreckless Eric claims "This pedal is dynamite. It's the closest thing I've ever found to a tube Binson Echorec."

When legendary musicians like these say stuff like this about our pedal, we must have gotten this one right.
