-I had the Strymon Volante at the beginning of the year for a few weeks. Sounded good, but really blew me away in stereo! A friend begged me to sell it to him, so I did. I just don’t do enough stereo guitar stuff right now to justify it.
-Got a Fulltone TTE tape delay. More for using on songs during mixing, it’s really fun hooked up on an AUX send on the console 100% wet. People love it! I’m happy with it on those duties, but honestly not all that blown away by it is a guitar delay. Still a really fun unit, but I would go back to the Volante in a heartbeat if it were just for guitar.
-My all time favorite, bought on a whim when they first came out: The Boss DM-2W... This thing has continued to rock my world sound wise and is quite flexible with the wet and dry outs. I think I payed like $100 for it with a GC coupon. I liked it so much better than my original Diamond Memory Lane and a few other expensive/heavy hitters. Every delay fan should have one of these on their board, just a no brained at the price.
I took a shot in the dark and bought a SolidGoldFX Electroman MkII. It does not disappoint! Lots of cool features in this pedal with the effects insert, great sounding modulation, dual delay mode and the warp switch. I am a fan!
