    Can anybody recommend a delay for under $200? I'm looking for 600ms repeats, decent analog-ish sound (can be a digital delay-I need the longer delay times) Cheaper is better, but I want to get something pretty good.

    Analogman AR20DL/XL is 600mS - great sounding analog delay with a ton of headroom.

    Is the Carbon Copy buffered or TB?

    According to Mr. Tripps (aka Mr. Huge) the man that designed the pedal, it is true bypass. I notice no tonal changes with the pedal in or out of my chain.

    I'm not trying to stir anything up, I am actually looking for a delay WITH a buffer, not TB... my FX loop sucks tone like no other.

    I meant "I" was stirring it up.... there seems to be a debate about the truthfulness of the TB statement. I am no engineer and cannot say with certainty if its TB or Not. Its NOT a 3pdt switch but that's all I know. I do know it sounds great and is a bargain. I would get the Maxon AD999 or Maxon AD-9 if a buffer was needed.

    BYOC DD80 (600ms) or AD80 (300ms) delay. Excellent analog-sounding delay for super cheap. There was/might still be one in the emporium for $50, and, even though I already have a well-modded one, I'm tempted to pick up another just for kicks. Seriously, if it's still there, you should buy it.

    Also, the Freakshow Digilog is really nice. Similar circuit to the BYOC, but modded for some neat extra features like a stomp-oscillation switch.

    You could wait a couple of months and pick up a Boss DD7. They look like they're gonna be pretty sweet. Seems like it will be a DD20 in a compact pedal...kind of. There are tons of features in this thing (analog, tap temp, etc etc etc). I think I've seen that they'll be like $170 ish. I think it will be worth trying out.

    I also love the DD5, but seems like the DD7 will replace it.
