A first venture from the electronic music label into hardware production.
Realised by Coldcut’s Matt Black and longtime friend Dr Walker, the new hardware effects unit is produced in collaboration with Erica Synths, who created and manufactured the product.
The Zen Delay works as a dub-delay hardware FX unit, combining extreme feedback ranges for dub and experimental lo-fi effects with a multi-mode 24 dB synth filter and valve overdrive.
Described by Ninja Tune as a pedal able to offer extreme dub possibilities for live performance, studio use and creative DJing, it’s a first venture from the electronic music label into hardware production.
Speaking on the unit, Ninja Tune affiliate The Bug describes The ZenDelay as “perfect for live abusage, and studio madness… the Zen Delay is the analogue delay unit I’ve been waiting for”.

Priced at €499, the first 300 units are available for pre-order with the product due to ship for Christmas delivery.
