    Looking to get an analog delay pedal with a small footprint for a small board I am putting together.

    My large board has 2 T-Rex Delays on it (one in-line/one in efx loop) --

    Need something that delivers a quality delay (like the t-rex) but in a small package.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks

    Ibanez AD-9 is really popular for this use... Also, they will be increasingly more difficult to find as time passes, so it's a pretty sound investment.

    I really like the Prisoner - it only has 300mS of delay, but the modulation is fantastic.

    If you're handy the BYOC is pretty nice although not analog it has an awesome high pass roll off that nails the analog tone at a much nicer price level!

    Yes please do a search, this has been a very popular topic the last month. Generally most people recommend Diamond Memory lane, Maxon AD-80, Ad-9,ad-900, ad-999 for newer analog delays. For older vintage Ibanez ad-9, ad-88, arion analog delay, boss dm-2, dm3, and I am sure there is more. I own a boss dm-2 and am very happy with it. Remember analog delays usually have only about 300ms to 700ms depending on which pedal we are talking about. So make sure you are ok with shorter delays. Again do the search on old threads and good luck with your search for a new analog pedal.

    I dumped this one as well as the Blackbox Quicksilver due to the volume drop when engaged. Does the Jacques have this issue? The options on that sure look like fun.

    'Nother vote for Jacques Prisoner. 300ms of analogue delay in a tiny (smaller than BOSS) package. Gorgeous modulation thrown in at no extra charge.. Killer pedal.

    I don't hear any volume loss, but the pedal is buffered. No worse (and maybe better) than BOSS style buffering, but probably a deal breaker for those 'true-bypass-obsessed' players, of which I know you're not one;)

    i have a vintage Ibanez AD-9 and love it. Great warm delay. Find one on Ebay for about $150, just make sure its an original not a reissue.

    Maybe the dm3 route might work -- will check the vintage ADs as well.

    thanks

    The Keeley AD-9 seems to take care of any issues one might have...

    I use a Deluxe Memory Man, so I am not intimately acquainted with the AD-9's eccentriciteis with regard to volume. The DMM is an awesome pedal, but most likely doesn't fit your real estate requirements of having a small footprint by a long shot!
