    ...for a slapback echo rockabilly kinda thing.

    If so, what delay pedal would you recommend?

    Heck yes!!!

    I use a BYOC delay. It's very good for rockabilly.

    Can you name some that are reasonably priced and are true bypass?

    what price range are you trying to stay in? are there any important features, or are you strictly after a good slapback sound?

    Would like to try and stay in the $75+/- range. I'm not adverse at all to buying a used pedal.

    Don't need nuthin' fancy...just good ol' '50s Sun Records-type slapback.

    I love the DE7 by ibanez ... used for 35 bucks ....I have it in a loop so I never checked out the buffer ... but the echo setting is as good as it gets for me if you want tradition echo type sounds

    DOD FX90 You can get them used for 40.00-50.00. The nicer one is the DOD 585-A white box uses two 9 volt batteries or 18 volt power supply. There perfect for slap in a tweed deluxe. A real bargin in analog delays.

    get something brighter for slapback, or else it's just gonna sound muddy.

    the Deluxe Memory Man is the best I've ever heard.

    I wouldn't get hung up on the true bypass part...

    For under $100 the best analog delay for slapback stuff I've come across is the Arion SAD-1.

    Brian setzer uses a Fulltone TTE but if you don't feel like dropping the money. A Boss Dm-2 excellent for slapback rockabilly. Plus the boss buffers will help keep your tone nice and spanky!!
