mate - i find any true analog delay from the 80's worth a look - if it's got a bucket brigade chip in it it'll get those cool gritty warm repeats that oscillate in a real musical fashion. I've owned 2 cheaper analog delays - a Washburn and Arion - and they honestly sound just as sweet as my old DM3 - i'd jump on the old DOD delay - BTW I've heard they're very nice sounding.
haha, I know! I/We're horrible! I'm always on the look-out for new delays, especially analog/tape ones. I'm also hunting down a Roland SRE-555/RE-501 Chorus Echo and looking to get a Memory Lane 2. I'm testing the ML2 next week in some shop somewhere in the Netherlands.Demo...I think you and I or on about the same page as far as delays go. Always searching for another one ha! Damn I have 4 on my board right now! I've seen this video a few times. I can't count how many times I've sat down with my studio headphones and listened to samples of different delays for hours on end.
I've actually heard great things about this. Some guys did a clip of it:
I think it sounds pretty good! Check out the other clips on YouTube as well. It's definitely interesting! Very dark and gritty character. I've also read there's a trimpot inside to make the delay longer. It can introduce some clocknoise.
There's one in The Netherlands for around 95,-
haha, I might just pick it up for kicks, though I can't afford it right now (saving up for a Memory Lane 2) - so, I'll probably won't.
I was into these a while back and was checking them out on ebay to try to grab one until I started seeing them go for $90 - 120 which is TOTALLY not worth it.
These are great pedals but they are best used as a "always on" type pedal.
Remember, that's that flimsy 80's DOD little plate for you to step on, so they tend to break easy.
I had an FX90 on my board for about a year only to replace it with the FX96. So you might say that I am a fan. The FX96 is still part of my rig. FX90 has some serious grit too it and works better with a powersupply. I think it was originally meant to take 10volts so a 12 volt dc power supply might give you more clean headroom. I dont know for sure. I used a 9v. with mine. My switch was less than great but i think you can replace those or just wire it to always be on and stick it in a looper.
