    I really like my DD-20. My son has the DL4 so I was able to use his before making my decision. I went with the DD-20 becasue there are more presets and I really like the ability to see, and dial in, the exact tempo of the song using the delay time knob and display. The DL4 has no display. I also did not like the fact that unless you save your current settings to a preset, you lose them completely. The DD-20 has the first preset as a manual setting which allows you to keep those settings even after switching away from them.

    I second the motion for the Boss DD-20. A very versatile delay, easy to use, and very quiet. With a Boss FS-5U Momentary switch, it's a breeze to Tap Tempo without holding down the DD-20 2nd pedal for 2 seconds. I always tap tempo the delay time with the FS-5U at the start of each song. That way, I'm always ready to use delay if I want to.

    Setting the four user patches is a breeze, too.

    wellll, I wouldn't exactly call the dd-20 simple. It is, however, straightforward and EXTREMELY versatile. Sounds awesome too, I love mine.

    If you look on harmony central, you'll see a ton of people who hate the DL-4, because apparently a lot of them will die with no warning and are completely unreliable.

    another vote for the boss. If you want simple, though, you may want a DD-6

    Another vote for the DD-20. I had TWO DL4's die on me seperately...at the gig no less. Before that, the switches had fallen apart on both (yes, I tightened them on a regular basis). It's called a STOMPBOX!! Got the DD-20 a couple of weeks ago while on the road, and even though I'm still tweeking back and forth, it's great, especially being able to see the settings.

    Ibanez DE7 is excellent for an inexpensive delay.

    I also own a Maxon AD999, and agree it is my favorite delay pedal. However, they are pricey, and so I recommended the Ibanzez DE7 as the "best" in the inexpensive category.
