I've tried to replicate a simpler version by having a Maxon AD999 followed by a Zvex LoFi Looper. The latter was to simulate how an Echoplex can repeat a phrase (and Zvex has a vibrato control for the loop).
However, I have fond memories of using an Echoplex years ago, and am really thinking of the TTE now.
The Amp Forum section of TGP got me concerned about "dispurities" to my amp tube tone, so I stumbled across some articles about "Intermodulation Distortion." However, a friend pointed out he actually prefers having the delay repeats get the same color as the direct guitar signal. Thus, keep the delay pedal (or TTE) in front of the amp).
One suggestion - have you guys ever tried a volume pedal immediately BEFORE the TTE? What I found with my AD999 is I could attack a note and fade it out with the volume pedal, and have the delays trail on. Sounds very mellow and something like a Jimmy Page thing from The Rain Song or No Quarter.
Also, the Rotosphere idea sounds amazing, in terms of combining it with the TTE. So, if I get a TTE, I may need to also get a Rotosphere...
