    Hello, I'm looking to buy a delay pedal for the pedal board. I'll only be stepping on it a few times a night, specifically for volume swells with a longer delay setting. I don't really have a budget but I probably won't be spending $250 on a pedal that will see minimal use on stage. I have a 5150 III 50 watt that I run almost exclusively on the blue channel with the gain set relatively low compared to what the amp can produce.

    Also while you're here and if you can help, I've been using a boss CH1 for a subtle chorus effect with my volume pot rolled down. Not really digging the tone, any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,
    Gerry

    Make him a offer on this, see how low he'll go, start at $120 and he'll probably counter with the lowest he'll take.

    You might like the modulated delay for its kind of chorusing effect as well. You can always defeat mod if you want straight repeats.

    You might think of instead of chorus getting a pitch pedal like boss ps-5 and running in detune mode, low mix level. It will give you thickening like a chorus but without the modulation.

    Either of these work. You can also try an Echo Park.

    One of the BOSS DD pedal should work for you.

    Yep, Boss DD. Any of them will be fine.
