    i am looking for the best small footprint delay pedal that will add just a subtle echo and depth to my sound. what pedals should i be looking at? (i already have a SMMH for wilder, longer delays). are there any pedals that would really add that extra "something" to my tone???

    I sure do like my AD-80 for that kind of thing.
    The blend knob allows you to back it off a bit.
    And it's analog so it does good stuff to your tone
    for that more ethereal spacy sorta sound.
    ymmv

    Small footprint?
    MXR Carbon Copy or the Mad Prof Deep Blue Delay. Both sound great.
    AD-80 is cool but sorta hard to come by.

    The Deluxe Memory Man can be a beast, but it can also be a great subtle atmospheric wash - the best part is that you can add either chorus or vibrato to your delays and a tad bit of modulation too, and stick it way in the back. Really makes it 3-D without being intrusive.

    You ought to try using a delay with reverse... put the regen (depends on the delay) around 40%-50% and the mix 25% or less --- works for me
