Packed with more power than pedals taking up more real estate, the compact Canyon features a collection of awe-inspiring effects. From pristine digital delay to warm and warbly tape echo, reverse and modulated delays, cascading octave delay and shimmer… even an exquisite Deluxe Memory Man emulation. There are ten different effects in all plus a fully featured looper. Internal or external Tap Tempo with tap divide and a chasm full of intuitive secondary knob controls deliver a truly grand experience.


Features 11 modes:

  • Echo:  Digital delay - This mode is a simple digital delay, in which each delayed repeat sounds exactly like the previous one, and the repeats gradually decrease in volume.

  • Mod:  Modulated delay - This mode is the same as the ECHO mode, but with added modulation to the delayed repeats to give the delayed tone complexity and warmth.

  • Multi:  Multi-tap delay - In this mode, each repeat of the delayed signal occurs at exactly the same volume. The FEEDBACK knob sets the total number of constant - volume repeats.

  • Reverse:  Reverse delay - Echoes will play back in reverse. This is an intelligent reverse echo: it studies your playing so that it can produce reversed echoes that best suit your delay time setting.  Tip: Use the CANYON’s Secondary Knob Mode to adjust the sensitivity of the intelligent pluck detection algorithm.

  • Dmm:  Deluxe Memory Man - This is a faithful emulation of the tone of the EHX Deluxe Memory Man bucket brigade analog delay pedal. Organic echoes transform as they repeat, and lush modulation is available using the Secondary Knob Mode.

  • Tape:  Tape delay - This mode simulates the prized analog tape echo units of the 1970s. Echoes degrade and distort as they repeat, as tape Wow and Flutter provide true tape character.

  • Verb:  Reverb plus delay - In this mode, each echo also has plate reverb applied to it. Tip: Turn FEEDBACK all the way down to get a pure reverb effect, where DELAY controls the pre-delay of the reverb.

  • Oct:  Octave delay - In this mode, each repeat is progressively pitch shifted up one octave.  Tip: A sub-octave is also available by using the CANYON’s Secondary Knob Mode.

  • Shim:  Shimmer - This mode creates a shimmer effect, generating a rich octave-shifted wash of harmony with your guitar. The CANYON achieves this by modeling a chain of four EHX pedals.

  • S/H:  Sample and hold - This mode senses guitar plucks, and repeats them indefinitely until another pluck is sensed. In this mode, the FEEDBACK knob controls the CANYON’s sensitivity to guitar plucks. At the minimum position, only the strongest plucks will trigger the S/H mode. As FEEDBACK is turned up, the sensitivity of this mode increases.

  • Loop: Looper mode w/max loop length of 62 seconds - A recorded loop is stored permanently, even when the CANYON is removed from power. As a special feature, the FEEDBACK knob controls the level of the existing loop that is preserved when overdubbing.





Controls the output volume of the delay effect. When this knob is at the minimum position, the output is only your dry signal. As the knob is turned up, the delay output increases in volume. As the knob is turned past 2 o’clock, the dry signal decreases in volume. When the knob is at the maximum position, the output is only the delay output. Note: in S/H and LOOP modes, the dry signal remains at unity volume even as FX LVL is turned to maximum


Controls the delay time of the CANYON, from a minimum position of 5 milliseconds to a maximum of 3 seconds.


Controls the number of repeats of the delayed signal. As this knob is turned clockwise, the number of repeats increases. In S/H mode, this knob controls the pluck detection sensitivity. As the knob is turned clockwise, the sensitivity increases. In LOOP mode, this knob controls how much of the existing loop is preserved when overdubbing. As the knob is rotated clockwise, more of the existing loop is preserved. At the maximum position, the loop will stay the same volume while overdubbing.


This knob is an 11-position rotary switch that selects which of the CANYON’s delay modes is active.


This switch controls the Tap Divide setting. When the delay time is set using tap tempo, this button controls the division of the tapped tempo. Press the switch to cycle through the Tap Divide options, which are indicated by the LED color. Red indicates quarter notes, orange indicates dotted eighth notes, and green indicates eighth notes. If the LED does not change color when pressing this switch, internal Tap Tempo is disabled. See “Tap Tempo with the CANYON” on page 7 for the details of tap tempo use.


Press this footswitch to switch the pedal between bypass and effect modes. When the pedal is in effect mode, the LED will be lit. The footswitch can also be used to set the delay time by tapping it at least two times. This functionality is enabled from the factory, but can be disabled.

TAILS Switch

The CANYON allows you to choose whether delayed echoes continue to repeat or stop immediately after the pedal is switched to bypass. To control this, remove the CANYON’s bottom cover and locate the small slide switch on the bottom of the board labeled “TAILS.” When Tails are set to ON, the echoes will continue to repeat after the pedal is switched to bypass, with the number of repeats set by the FEEDBACK knob. Anything you play after entering bypass will not repeat. If the pedal is set for infinite feedback (i.e. the FEEDBACK knob is set to maximum) the repeats will continue until you turn the FEEDBACK knob down or switch to a different mode. Note: In Sample/Hold mode, repeats will not continue indefinitely when Tails are ON. The repeats will fade out over half a second. When Tails are set to OFF, all repeats will stop as soon as the bypass switch is pressed, regardless of the FEEDBACK knob setting.





This ¼” jack is the audio input of the CANYON. The input impedance is 1M ohms.


This ¼” jack is the audio output of the CANYON. The output impedance is 680 ohms.


Connect an external momentary footswitch to this ¼” jack to control the delay time by tapping in a tempo. The external switch should be normally open. Upon engaging the switch, it should create a short circuit between the Tip and Sleeve of the plug. See “Tap Tempo with the CANYON” on page 7 for details on using Tap Tempo.

9V Power Jack

Plug the output of the CANYON’s supplied EHX9.6DC 200mA AC adapter in the 9V power jack located at the top of the pedal. The CANYON requires 150mA at 9VDC with a center-negative plug.
