Electro-Harmonix says that the Grand Canyon builds upon the great delays of their popular Canyon Delay and Looper and makes them even more grand.  A spokesperson told us, "It takes the concept of the Canyon’s flexible secondary knob functions and places that functionality on the face of the unit for ease of use while performing and creating. With the extra parameters now more easily accessible, the delays can be twisted into even more special effects like bit crushing and tape flutter. It really cracks open the nut of the Canyon and lays it out for all to see."
The Grand Canyon features 12 effect types plus a fully featured looper capable of recording and overdubbing the Grand Canyon’s effects. The pedal provides up to three seconds of delay time, tap tempo and nine tap divide settings, stereo output, 13 presets, programmable EXP pedal settings and high quality analog bypass with soft switching. The Grand Canyon’s 13 modes are:

  • ECHO – 24-bit digital delay with bit crush/sample rate reduction and low/high pass filtering
  • MOD – Modulated delay, yields flanger, chorus, vibrato and more
  • MULTI – Multi-tap delay, set the exact number of echo repeats up to 31
  • REVERSE – Reverse delay with an intelligent pluck detection algorithm
  • DMM – Deluxe Memory Man, re-creates the tone of the EHX bucket-brigade delay pedal
  • TAPE – Tape Delay, simulates analog tape echo including tape distortion, wow and flutter
  • REVERB – Lush plate reverb plus echo.
  • PITCH – Polyphonic pitch shifting plus digital delay creates pitch-shifted echoes
  • SHIM – Shimmer generates a rich octave-shifted wash
  • SAMPLE/HOLD – Sample and hold, senses a note being plucked and produces echoes indefinitely until another note is detected
  • DRUM – Magnetic drum echo that emulates a classic Binson Echorec style delay
  • DOUBLE – Thickens up a mono signal or creates a stereo spread.
  • LOOPER – Looper with up to 16 minutes of recording time. Includes unlimited overdubs, undo/redo, dedicated stop button, loop fade-out, reverse and speed adjust.


The pedal comes with a 9.6VDC/200mA power supply.
