Dispatch Master remains EarthQuaker's top-seller to this day. Pick one up, and you'll know why.

Crystalline digital delays up to 1.5 seconds without nasty self-oscillation. Luscious reverbs that seem to last forever, like a collect call from beyond the fourth dimension. Ethereal ambient soundscapes that drift off into outer space like a psychedelic shooting star. Over ten thousand pickers, grinners, heshers, singers, shredders, ivory ticklers, trumpeters, bassists, and synthesists use the Dispatch Master to make and receive music in all genres - anything from thick swatches of reverb and delay, to a quick chicken-pickin' slapback, or even just to add a little bit of room sound to a signal that's a tad dry.

The delay signal is clear and strong, with no gross digital artifacts or tonal degradation. The reverb is massive and cavernous. With a twist of the "Mix" knob, youll hear everything from subtle ambient spaces, making the Dispatch Master a useful "always on" pedal; to cavernous reflections and echoes with near-infinite repeats.

The Dispatch Master is designed to be a little more hi-fi than the Ghost Echo or Levitation, for those players looking for clean, articulate time-based effects in a versatile yet still compact footprint. The Delay and Reverb effects may be used separately or in tandem. You just have to answer the call.

Controls:
• Time: Sets the delay time, from 0ms to 1.5 seconds.
• Repeats: Controls the regeneration of the delayed signal. Also acts as a enhancer for the reverb. In reverb mode this will control the thickness, decay, depth and overall nature of the reverb.
• Reverb: Clockwise for more reverb, counterclockwise for less.
• Mix: Adjusts the over all level of the effected signal.

To use as a reverb only, turn the time control all the way down and adjust the reverb and mix controls to taste. In this mode, the repeats control can be used to enhance the thickness, decay, depth and overall nature of the reverb. With the reverb control at its maximum setting, the repeats control will gradually overload the effect at higher settings.
To use as a delay only, turn the reverb control all the way down and adjust the time, repeats and mix controls to taste. To use both effects in unison, adjust all controls to taste.

Specifications:
• Dimensions: 4.37 X 2.37 X 1.75 inches
• Power: EarthQuaker pedals take a standard 9 volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel. Pedal-specific, transformer-isolated wall-wart power supplies or multiple isolated-output supplies are recommended. Pedals will make extra noise if there is ripple or unclean power. Switching-type power supplies, daisy chains and non-pedal specific power supplies do not filter dirty power as well and let through unwanted noise. Do not run at higher voltages!
• Current draw: 60 mA.

The Dispatch Master is true bypass, and built one at a time in Akron, Ohio, USA. The Dispatch Master uses silent relay-based soft touch switching. Audio will not pass without power.

I finally get why so many people call this their desert island pedal. It's so easy to use, there's no "bad" sounds on it (literally ever permutation of the controls elicits a usable sound, unlike some other delay/reverb pedals), and it's so versatile. The reverb goes from room to hall with everything in between, and the delay goes from slapback to what feels like infinity. Basically, you can go from having just some basic reverb and light delay to fill out a solo, all the way to creating lush ambient pads with the reverb and delay turned up all the way. The only con I can think of is that I guess it's not ideal for live playing if your style of music requires a very diverse set of delays and reverbs for each song, since you would have to fiddle around with the knobs a lot between songs (but let's be honest, if that's you, you already have a Strymon TimeLine and BigSky and aren't even reading this haha).

Love this pedal. I play bass. And this is such a cool pedal for making ambient sounds. Easy to use. Delay is really good. Its nice to have reverb and delay in one.
