    Being mostly a guitar-cable-amp type of guy, I need some help with delay options.

    I'm looking for a delay pedal, which is true bypass, has the option of doing 100% wet signal (very important) and fairly small sized if possible. Does such a thing exist? Thanks! :)

    I think your best bet is to have an existing delay modified to have 100% wet.

    The only delays I have found that do 100% wet are all the larger ones - DL4, Timefactor, DD20, DMM, etc.

    I think it's actually pretty easy to have a kill-dry switch installed for a delay. I am having analogman do this to my DD-2 for placement in a parallel effects loop, and I imagine you could do this with other delays.

    The Malekko E600 has a second output for stereo and it can be switched to either wet or dry signal (not sure if it's 100% wet or if it's mixed, you would have to check). If you don't need stereo, you could probably just plug straight into the second output (you might have to use a dummy plug in the regular output).

    The Echo Park can go 100% wet. Just put in in a TB loop if the buffer really matters to you

    Do you want digital or analog? Digital will sound cleaner and give you longer delay, but sucks batteries like mad. Analog will sound sweeter, give shorter delays, and sips batteries. I prefer the sound of analog myself, and for me the best thing out there is a MXR Carbon Copy.

    i think most run-of-the-mill delay pedals with stereo outs will give you only dry on one output and only delay on the other when both jacks are plugged in.

    Actually, I've never gotten the DD20 100% wet and that's a typical complaint of the DD20. It gets close, though.

    this doesnt work for you?

    If I'm understanding "wet" correctly, I think the Digitech Hardwire DL-8 will do it, and it's TBP. There is some debate about this, but I did a quick A/B with mine and it was nearly, if not completely, invisible regardless.

    Thanks fellas. I prefer digital, BTW. But analog is good as well, depends on the pedal.

    To the last poster: the DL-8 will not go 100% wet, which is one of the reasons I sold it. It's nice a box however.

    Yeah, I came to my senses this morning and realized what you meant by "wet", 100% processed sound output. Right, a DL-8 won't do that.

    I think your best bet is to go with the Echo Park and deal with the tone suck, or have Analogman mod a DD-2/3/6 with a Kill Dry and True Bypass. I don't know if Mike does TB on Bosses... but it is possible. Or you could rehouse one altogether.
