    I own a DBD and i am about to sell it to get me 2 different delays.

    The DBD is the best delay i have on my board, i just want to go out there and try other delays.

    SO if anyone has any experience with the Keeley modded delays, please let me know

    I thing he is referring to Mad Professor's Deep Blue Delay...which by the way is an excellent delay IMO.

    ..... i use a Keeley modded AD-9....limited capabilities but very toneful and useable....its analog warm without too much signal deterioration...pretty clean sounding...i tend to use it quite a bit with minmal settings in lieu of reverb..i can get spacey with it on occasion though....

    +1 for the AD-9. I recently tried one at my local guitar store and have added it to my "must have" list of pedals. It's pretty simple and easy to use with not many frills but it's very warm and clean sounding. Personally I have two delays I use - one is a Keeley modded DL4 and the other tha AD-9. With the two I pretty much have my bases covered.

    I have a Keeley-modded AD-9 as well. Very warm and natural. Not much flexibility or delay time (300ms), but great tone.

    I've had two Keeley AD-9's. In my opinion, they are OK but nowhere near as good as the Maxon AD-9 or an original (not reissue) Ibanez AD-9.

    thanks to all.

    DBD means deep blue delay.

    I will check the Maxon and DD3

    i want something that is quite the opposite of the DBD just to have more bases covered, hence the DD3 i will check
