Tell me your favourite delay pedals and why they are your favourite. i currently have a boss DD-3 which works great for me but im looking for something a bit nicer and more high end to add to my pedal board aswell. help me out here guys. what should i look for?
I'm using a DLS Echo Tap set to mimick an analog pedal for my clean tone. It sounded like crap untill I set up the internal trim volume pots. Now I like it. Sounds better than my analog pedal.
I like a clean digital pedal with OD tones. I picked up a Toadworks Redux and it is the most pristine digital delay pedal I have tried. Took a little knob spinning to get it there but I love it now. Works great for clean tones also.
Some other delay pedals I would like to try but a lot of them seem grossly over priced.

Very nice pedal, sounds warm/soft, and nice to have something under your feet that just work. Can't compare it to the other pedals mentioned, except the boss-things....not my thing. Many years ago had a dd-3. very digital....well...that's what it is, so it probably do what it is supposed to do. Just not my cup of tea anymore.
Just got my H & K Replex tonight. If you try to use this like you would a digital delay, you'd probably be disappointed ... it's pretty warm. Set up right, it's unbelievable! I'm using it with just a hair of double head delay and repeat, with the vintage factor all the way up. Although the delay is medium, it acts almost like a plate reverb. It just gives a hint of vintage depth and vibe that's right out of the Jimmi library. The fact that it's delay and not reverb, allows it to cut well before a high gain amp.
I'm finished with pure effects, anyone want to buy a G-Major? Nice sounds, but I'm running with the ugly chicks now
Chandler echo although not a pedal just does something special that you won't find with anything else except a tape unit. The mxr 1500 is really sweet too. Again, not a pedal, but it really does have the EJ sound going on. I expected it to be good, and I was suprised it was more than I ever thought it would be. I know they are rack delays, but man are they worth the extra hassle of having to deal with.
