BBE Sound CRUSHER 122105 Owner`s manual

Owner’s Manual
Thank you for your purchase of the Two Timer!
The TWO TIMER was inspired by the long discontinued Boss
DM-2. The DM-2 was known for its warm haunting reverb and
tape-like echoes. The TWO TIMER offers two Independent
delay times which are foot selectable via the TWO TIMER’s
TIME 1/TIME 2 mode switch making it possible to have one
delay setup for a short slapback rhythm sound while another is
set to a longer delay for solos. It’s essentially two great analog
delays in one compact pedal. The TWO TIMER circuit features a
BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) for the warmth and character only
analog can deliver, 1% Metal Film resistors for pristine audio
quality and a True Hardwire Bypass for a clean signal path.
