I know the very first answer I will probably get is to invest in a "really good" delay pedal. So lets see if we can get that on out of the way first. Here is the issue. I have a cheap delay pedal on my board just for some light slap back here and there as I mainly use reverb and chorus for getting a nice, wet sound. It sounds good to my ears EXCEPT that it seems to pick up a LOT of my pick attack. Almost as much attack as actual tone signal. So, on single not lead stuff, there is an audible "click" that happens in the beginning of each note. Even as the delay decays. I have tried the level control to see if I can bring that down. Rolling off the volume on the guitar itself. Angling the pick itself to see if more of a "slide" off the strings as opposed to a "pop" off the strings would help. But to no avail. Now, bear in mind that I don't hear this when I am playing without the delay. The original picked note does have a pretty percussive attack...but no "pop". It is the echoes that have it. Also, when I am playing chords with the delay on, I don't seem to hear it either. So, my question is, is this common in delay effects? It it simply a flaw in the cheap a$$ pedal I am using? [It is a Mosky clone of the Mad Professor pedal]......OR (and this is likely) is it a result of my playing technique [or lack thereof]. And, if any of you have experienced this, and found a remedy, could you share it with me. Thanks in advance.
