    Hey everybody!

    I need an analog delay for some low mix background ambience, able to hit 475ms time.

    Problem is, I need it to be relatively cheap, because I need to sell another pedal in order to fund this new delay (by cheap, like $150).

    So methinks the Carbon Copy?
    Deluxe Memory Boy/Toy?

    What other ideas do you guys have?

    I'm not against a digital delay, it's just that I have owned a ton of delays (mostly more expensive vintage and boutiques,) and it seems like the few digitals I HAVE tried weren't too warm-- TC Flashback, DD5/20, Providence Chrono.

    You can find a used Retro-Sonic for $175 in the Emporium now. That'll get you up to 800ms and it's another world up from the Carbon Copy.

    Donner or Monoprice. Not analog, but unbeatable @ approx $35

    Just picked up a Dark 616 (Malekko) and it's perfect for low mix / sit in the background analog delay. Virtually certain it'll get ya to 600ms or more.

    Thanks for the opinions; I'll check into them!

    I had kind of ruled out digital delays, because aside from MIJ DD2/3 and a Catalinbread Montavillian, I hadn't found any that blended into the background well enough...too clicky, or trebly, sitting on top of my sound instead of just being a pillow of ambience in the background. But, maybe some one you guys listed CAN do this?

    Keep the recommendations coming please!

    Thanks!

    I haven't tried it, but the Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail looks interesting.
