However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 3 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

EarthQuaker Devices Disaster Transport Sr Delay

The Disaster Transport Sr from EarthQuaker Devices is a dual delay pedal fused with reverb, modulation and a huge range of other effects. Providing edgy lo-fi sounds over two channels of delay, it will transport you straight back to the 80's and 90's garage rock scene. Whilst the Disaster Transport may initially seem intimidating with its plethora of controls, it actually offers an intuitive and easy to navigate top panel giving you the power to control your delay channels separately and sculpt your dream sounds in seconds. On top of delays and reverbs, the compact unit can create other effects ranging from smooth chorus to crazy warped flange, making it an amazingly versatile choice for the lo-fi, old school tape delay enthusiast.

The delay and reverb options are almost endless with this pedal, offering a straight delay, straight reverb, rhythmic delay, modulated delay and old school tape-style echo. The layout of the EarthQuaker Disaster Transport Sr is simple; the top row of dials control delay A, and the bottom control delay B. You can run both of the channels completely separately, in parallel, in series or mix these up for ultimate customisation of your tone. Delay A can even be bled into delay B with bleed and expression controls.

Delay A

Delay A provides a 600ms delay with modulation.

  • Time: Controls the delay time from approximately 30ms to 600ms.
  • Repeats: Controls how many repeats of the signal there are till it dies. Ranges from one single repeat through an endless wash into self oscillation. Can also be controlled via an external expression pedal.
  • Mix: Level control for the wet signal. Unity is around center, anything above is boosted. Boosting this works great with a distorted signal. This is a gain control, slight hiss is normal when above unity.
  • Depth: Controls the intensity of the modulation. From no modulation to all out seasick pitch bends.
  • Rate: Controls rate of modulation. The LED for delay A flashes in time with the modulation to visually show where the rate is set.
  • Bleed: This feeds delay A into delay B, post reverb. Use this control for series or series/parallel operation to create rhythmic repeats, extra long delay time or an all out echo wash. This can also be controlled via an expression pedal. When using the bleed, experiment with the repeat controls on each delay channel. Try using them in different settings, both together and individually, for different timing and textures.

Delay B

Delay B provides a 300ms delay with reverb.

  • Reverb: Controls the amount of reverb added to delay B input.
  • Mix: Level control for the wet signal. Unity is around center, anything above is boosted. Boosting this works great with a distorted signal. This is a gain control, slight hiss is normal when above unity.
  • Repeats: Controls how many repeats of the signal there are till it dies. Ranges from one single repeat through an endless wash into self oscillation.
  • Time: Controls the delay time from about 30ms to 300ms.

The EarthQuaker Devices Disaster Transport Sr gets better and better by the minute with the capability to create a multitude of crazy sounds from warped records, flange, smooth chorus, echoed out squalls and various other mind blowing effects. If you're mad for old school tape delay and lo-fi tones, you will get endless enjoyment every time you plug into the Disaster Transport. The switches for both delays switch the inputs only. The outputs are always connected, allowing you to have trails by always leaving the bypass switch engaged or to use the bypass switch as the master on/off for true bypass. Also, you can feed delay A into B using the bleed control without having delay B active to provide a cleaner rhythmic delay.
