I think that this may have been asked before and responded to in a number of different contexts, but just wanted to try to collect current opinion on this. I'm looking for a small footprint analog delay (Boss size) that runs on standard 9v (so I can use my Dunlop Brick to power it up). I have been using a Boss DD-3 for sometime now, and it is beginning to sound to sterile and synthetic for me - so looking for something more organic sounding - not sure how to describe this - but something less pristine than the DD-3. Not too concerned about price (but hopefully less than US $300), as long as it sounds good, and not too concerned about delay length either. Applications are to make leads sound a more full (while still sounding natural), and spaceship stuff (self-oscillation). For current production I think this is it: Behringer VD400 Arion SAD-3 Maxon AD9 Pro Ibanez AD9 Malekko 616 MXR Carbon Copy Of these, and for reference, I've only tried out the Malekko 616, and thought that this sounded too clean, although the 616 Lo-Fi, to me sounded more like what I had in mind. Of the current production pedals, I was leaning towards the Maxon AD9 Pro, but am worried that this may sound too clean and refined. And used stuff I've been looking at are: Boss DM-2 Boss DM-3 Please let me know if there are any others I should consider. Given all the choices just thought I'd ask here, and hopefully get some responses from people who are more familiar with this than I am, and who may have already gone through the same process. Thanks !!
