Our members also liked: Sort by most akau most useful. I use both the tape analog mostly but the digital delay works very well too. I use a TC Electronics Ditto for my loop.

Both of these pedals are awesome; together, I doubt that there is a better combo for an on stage pedal board.

The downside is the large footprint and that a standard 9v adapter isn’t used. Overall, it is worth it’s price just for the tape analog delay and digital delay, both for the ease of use and the customization abilities available. The size being that of two pedals makes it ok as you ARE getting two pedals in one.

Did you find this review helpful? The Akai Headrush E2 is a standard digital delay. It’s pretty barebones as far as these pedals go. The settings are arguably the most minimal settings on any a Digital Delay, simply being able to adjust level, delay time, feedback, etc.

The last switch also incorporates a hold; feature, which will basically loop short phrases as long as you depress the pedal with your foot. There are two outputs, one on either side, but i haven’t ever used more than one so I can’t comment on majual that. There’s nothing crazy like midi or computer editing options on it either. If you don’t want to much getting in the way, this would be perfect for you. Not much too explain and will only take a few moments to get a grasp of it.

Even if you don’t know what any of the knob settings mean at first, you’ll get a feel for it quickly. I’ve never had anything but good experiences with this pedal manula far as sound quality goes.

I play guitar and I think the pedal is perfect for this, though I doubt a bass would sound any worse going mnaual it. The hold feature is pretty cool although it’s not a replacement for a loop station, since it tends to sound pretty clipped. It’s better as a jarring effect then a legitimate loop. I sometimes wish that I could do a bit more with it, but that would mean getting something much more expensive and generally unnecessary for me personally.

Akai E2 HeadRush – Looper Review |

I like how simple it is, which makes it easy to change settings on the go. That being said, programming pre-set settings onto it is not possible, and that would likely make it easier to use in live settings. I ended up going with this simply because it was cheapest, so I’d recommend shopping around and maybe checking out some other pedals first check out the other Akai pedals, just because they all tend to sound pretty good.

I don’t know if I’d pick this up again but it’s certainly not a regrettable choice. Digital delay with three modes: It has 23 seconds of delay time.

There are controls for level of the delay or looper, high frequency damping high end roll offfeedback, time, ratio, and head gap. The basic set up is just like any other delay pedal but gets a little more intricate if you plan on using the individual head outputs.


I did not get too into that part but it allows you to send four separate delay lines out through different akxi. The delay lines are divided by the ratio and head gap knobs. I never really noticed any tonal degradation but then again I’m not super particular about that kind of thing. I don’t set my amp up with just the guitar and then expect it to sound exactly the same after plugging ten pedals in line before it. The tape echo mode was very nice and the high frequency damping allows maanual to get a pretty authentic sound.

I am sure you would notice the difference in a studio but for live use I would much rather drag this out then bring an old actual tape unit out that requires maintenance. The looping was very clean and the stomps have a great feel. This is on par if not better than the line 6 dl4 in regards to getting you loops in time.

The delays sounded fine and I’m sure there are people out there that love the separate “head” outputs but I think there are better options for a stand alone delay pedal.

The looper is just great and is worth the price of admission on it’s own. I no longer own the pedal but I would buy one again in a heart beat hwadrush I needed another looper.

The E2 Headrush is a delay, echo, with separate outputs, and to a lesser extent a looper up to 37 sec. It was in the order of the knobs, the level of the effect or loop in “variable” mode a damp hf, which cuts treble on the manaul, the number of repetitions of the delay, and a mode manual adjustment of delay time thereof.

It was then a setting that allows you to set when the delay is fading, and a time to narrow, more pointed, the first setting of the genre if I’m making myself clear.

It has two switches, one for the output level of the loop in looper mode, a,ai that may be affected by the level knob, or remain stationary, and a headgush that defines quality and time looping, 11 or 37 sec of memory. The outputs are in jack 6 “35, and there are 5!

Akai E2 HeadRush instruction manual and user guide

A main, which couples the raw signal and the processed effect, and 4 others intended to simulate the passage on the heads as for tape echoes. They can therefore join different outputs, 4 amps, 4 channel strips or more reasonably, 4 audio interface inputs. No editing by computer possible, no usb, you plug the microphone with an adapterand his guitar playing, old.

Editing sounds is simple, the commissioning of the looper too, but the buttons would have earned to be bigger, especially switches to start and stop loops.

If it does not bother me when using the delay for the looper, sometimes I was not able to start my loop or stop in time, which is sometimes annoying. Mode change, delay in looper, could also benefit from a different type of switch, with two switches at the same time, it’s not top-top. I like the delays, color, sounds fast and well, even in the studio, I use little echo, and I rarely use more than one outlet, I’d better explain the Camaguey everything.

The looper sounds great too, no loss of sound or dynamics, compared to a Digitech JamMan, or Boss, it sounds much better, less corrupt. I use it with electric and acoustic guitars, electric bass, sometimes a voice and machines by assigning it to send my mixing desk, live, it works very well, thank you! The pedal is solid, well finished, connectors qualities, nothing moves, or do crunches, or any noise “beginning of the end. At his level, I have not tried other delays, except maybe a Gigadelay Boss, which is a sacred gasworks.


I used the delay, direct mode with tap tempo, to play alone or to the effects of “reggae” type. The looper is great in terms of sound, but I still run properly galley loops or not I pressed enough, I press two switches at the same time I do shoes as 43well However it sounds great, even if we can not store or save the above-said loops.

I bought euros Musik Store, I can not even remember when, I always have it in my pedal board, ready I use it mainly for making loops with the voice. For me the time loop is sufficient and as I live while the fact that we can not store the loops does not bother me. I found the buttons quite practical and accurate. Lack of XLR inputs, and a few new options available to loopers, saving the loop but I’m using it!

We sometimes hear the click of the start of registration, but nothing catastrophic. Also, a bug that bothers me if I touch his foot with the 2 buttons reading and rec at the same time it goes to the loop delay and I lose everything that is saved It happened to me sometimes.

On stage I use my voice as the second line passes through another slice and it’s great. I had to do concerts.

It is coupled with a Digitech Vocal and frankly even on large system it sounds! Yes I would do this choice. Maybe if I was more loop on the stage I test RC If you want to hear and see a piece done with the loops live: Manaul tap tempo-precise Hf-button warm damp perfectly sound it will delay the ultra cool to the analog sound Long-period delay tape echo simulation disappointed me on a point that if you move the button one time does not affect the pitch of repetition as the de-7 for ibanez.

What I think is a shame and what m requires it to keep for-7 for that. Otherwise the tape echo is very clean and gets dirty as the extreme settings.

Time-loop is sufficient for me because that time I did not superimpose bass over 3 couches. Sturdy case that holds well on the ground. Knobs and buttons within easy reach. It juggles Delay, Echo, and Looper. The main use for me is the Looper. Volume control of the output signal signal modified by the internal electronics that does not have enough range for my taste.

Between zero and maximum position, there is little difference. Another black spot I think it’s time recording mode Looper. It was at max 37 seconds, making chick. Way too little Another unfavorable remark: Can not save a recorded loop. It’s a fair bit. For those who want to short it’s all good riffs but for others, big Pb. I am part of others. My use is mostly not too Looper opinion on the time and the Echo.
