    Another mention for the FB... The LoFi setting is really nice.

    The DD-7 is awesome. Terrific analog mode.

    Flashback X4.

    It's simple, intuitive, programmable, has tap tempo, and sounds great.

    I also use a DLS echo tap.

    Two channel convenience and a wonderful analog sound.

    The DD7 has a great analog mode, sounds like a step up from the DD20 to me.

    I never liked the flashbacks analog as much as its tape.

    Flashback or AE if you can't afford the X4 versions. Some great TonePrints available to fine-tune either your analog or digital delay preferences.

    Nothing against the EchoPark either. I think it's also a great choice. Honestly, I think you can't go wrong with any of these three, although if you could fiddle with all three and your rig, one would probably grab you a bit more than the others.

    Don't forget the Ibanez DE-7!

    I have both the DD2 and the DD20. The DD2 is quite digital sounding to me, very nice but digital. The DD20 does a good impression of analog, but to me also still sounds a bit digital. Agree on the cutting through though.

    Then again, I am comparing them to my AD-80 and DMM, so maybe that is not fair...

    If you want to have best of both worlds at a reasonable price I think I would recommend the DD20, comes with some nice additional features as well.

    Get a DD-7. I am sure it will last X4 longer than the Flashback.

    ;)

    I'll add a vote for the DD-7, love mine! I think the Analog mode sounds great.

    PSA. The TC Transition is the Guitar Center version of the Flashback. Mine is FS for $75. You get both the delays loaded with the pedal, including a good analog, and Lo-Fi, as well as any of the Toneprints available.

    this!

    Best to find it locally and make sure the bypass switch isn't finicky. Many of the early 7 series had that issue.

    I really like the Alter Ego as well. It does a lot of things well, including analog emulations - especially for the price. For me, a no-brainer, really.
