Vein Tap - Tap Tempo Pedal

This list is a non-exhaustive list of pedals which we can confirm will accept a Vein Tap as an external tap tempo pedal. There’s hundreds more, but this list consists of pedals we’ve had here at to personally audition.

The following pedals require a “normally open” Vein Tap:


  • DD600 Digital Delay
  • DW400 Dynamic Wah
  • SP400 Super Phase Shifter


  • Deluxe Memory Man w/ Tap Tempo
  • Deluxe Memory Man 550-TT


  • ModFactor
  • PitchFactor
  • TimeFactor
  • Space


  • EH-1 Echohead Delay

As a general rule, any brand of pedal that isn’t Boss or Roland requires a normally open tap tempo switch, whereas Boss and Roland pedals require normally closed.

The following pedals require a “normally closed” Vein Tap:


  • AW-3 Dynamic Wah
  • DD-5 Digital Delay
  • DD-7 Digital Delay
  • DD-20 Giga Delay
  • GT-10 Multi Effects Unit
  • GT-10B Bass Multi Effects Unit
  • GT-100 Multi Effects Unit
  • ME-50 Multi Effects Unit
  • ME50B Multi Effects Unit
  • ME-70 Multi Effects Unit
  • PH-3 Phase Shifter
  • RC-2 Loop Station
  • RC-3 Loop Station
  • RC-20 Loop Station
  • RC-30 Loop Station
  • RC-50 Loop Station
  • RC-300 Loop Station

THIS IS NOT THE END – more pedals will be added, as soon as we’ve got them, plugged them in, and made sure they’ll work, even for fools like us.
