    Anyone know of a dedicated stompbox for vocal reverb/delay that is XLR in/out.. to be used by a vocalist live ?

    Not interested in boxes that offer other effects like harmonizing or autotune.. have a singer who is not good with tech, so the simpler the better..

    tbh presets would be perfect, i would set them for him.

    I know that a soundman can do all this, and stereo too, just want to go the stompbox route for this particular singer

    Thanks in advance

    Not any good ones. Good reverbs and delays do not come in stompbox format.

    The TC Helicon stuff sounds pretty good.

    +1. It has a lot of other stuff too, but I have a voicelive 3 and I only use it for a verb and delay on my voice. It's very easy to dial in.

    The small box TC voice stomps sound quite good, are easy to use and can be linked together.

    I use the delay one.

    TC Helicon 'Mic Mechanic' is a small, affordable option. While there is a "Correction" dial, you can set it to 'off' and apply tape to it to ensure it stays off :aok
    All of us backing singers in the band use one. A bit of slap echo helps with monitoring our vocals, particularly because most of our performances are mixed from the stage or (cough) "stage".

    The TC Helicon Mic Mechanic is the one the op needs. Reverbs and Delays sound good too.

    the TC stuff is great, so is the BOSS VE-20, it was made to do exactly what you're asking about.
