    I'm looking for a good cheap delay to use as a washy, underneath type delay and I've heard good things about the DE7. Anybody notice any tone suck?

    I own a DE7 at the very end of my signal chain since 8 years, and haven't noticed any.

    ^^ +2 here.

    Had one for a couple years, right at or near the end of my chain; no tone suck for me.

    I have 2 of them right before a DL4 at the end of my chain.
    No complaints. It's a solid, good sounding, inexpensive delay.

    I haven't noticed any tone suck either. The DE7 on echo mode is great for what you're looking for.

    OUTSTANDING pedal. If Moneyball was about pedals, the DE7 would be on Billy Beane's board.

    I have a DE7 and mine definitely sucks tone. I clearly hear higher frequencies getting cut when the pedal is in the chain. I really like the delay sound in echo mode but the pedal just makes the overall sound dull and unexciting to play.

    great pedal.
    I run a 2 amp rig with a 73 Model T head and a Model T Reissue (combo)
    I keep the de7 on ALL the time through the old head. GREAT Bargain Delay pedal
    no noise or tone suck issue/ switch can become finicky but no big deal for me as its always on.
