I acquired a gold skreddy echo this week (thanks Min!) This is a great sounding delay for exactly the purpose it is made for - tape delay sounds. I would say one thing I have not heard mentioned, is how similar it is to the Mad Professor DBD. They are not identical, but they both have a similar tape like progression of filtering to the repeats. I loved my DBD, and the skreddy retains that characteristic, BUT it adds a whole major element with the warble control, the trim pots, and loop. A great thing about the skreddy is how it can add that saturation/greasy liquid thing to lead tones. The echoes blend well, and it can really get the Eric Johnson EP sound better than anything I have tried, for both clean and lead. If they were a little less money and readily available I would like 2- one for big ambient sounds and one set for slap-back. This is one item that really lives up to it's reputation IMO.
