    Looking at some mini delays and got to thinking which mini pedals offer the best sound? Are there some that offer the sound/space nirvana? I know some don’t offer as many features as their bigger counterparts but just curious which ones really deliver.

    If you like analog delay check out the Ibanez mini.

    Lovepedal Amp 50 and Echo Baby... both are so simple but sound soooo good!

    MXR Phase 95 is ideal, stopped me from looking at any other phasers. :aok

    Menatone - top notch quality all around. I have a JAC Mini (compressor) on order and previously had a Hindenburg Mini that absolutely nailed the Supro sound! It sounded 98% like my Superbolt.

    @pickdropper also has a wide catalog of minis that are all handwired and top notch. Everything from delay and reverb to overdrive and fuzz.

    *TC HOF mini and Flashback Mini. Crazy good with the TonePrint feature. The price is right to!
    *LP BabyFace trem, Echo Baby delay and Pickle Vibe... All A+ pedals.
    *KO Amps Ten Cent trem. A photo cell trem with Germanium power... Thick and chewy goodness!
    Those are my stand-outs, but there are a lot of other great minis out there.:aok

    Decibelics Golden Horse (Klon) and Angry Sweede (HM-2) are the best for his kind that you're going to find.

    That analog delay is nigh unobtanium at this point, right? I saw one awhile back at a stupid price compared to current market offerings.

    And ..
    Dan Zink's stuff along with the Mooer Rat and flanger.

    I really like the Valeton FA-10 clone.

    regarding mini delays, I chose the TC Flashback mini. Great tones if you are comfy with toneprints. Can also create your own toneprints.

    Mr. Black just came out with a mini delay. Sounds good in demos.

    I don’t own one yet but I’d love to grab an MXR Vintage Bass octave... that thing sounds incredible.

    Whoa.

    I definitely would not hesitate to buy an MXR Mini in terms of quality. The Sugar Drive wasn’t much to write home about, but the others sound awesome!

    I should just make a macro for this but of all the minis/micro/nanos and/or picos I have the best bang for my buck ($17.00) was the Donner Jet Convolution. What made it even more fun was China sending me two of them for the price of one.

    Killer little thing, that one is, even if the price has doubled from a year or two ago.

    EWS Little Brute Drive is a powerhouse.
    Donner Yellow Fall delay surprised the heck out of me for $27.

    The 3 minis on my current board are:
    Wampler Mini Ego
    Mooer Hustle Drive
    Mosky SHO

    When I do the next revision I will be utilizing these in addition to a Mosky TM, Mosky B Box, and a Mosky XP.
