    Looking for a second delay for bedroom playing. Not worried about bypass, tone suckage, gigability, etc. Looking under 50, even cheaper the better!

    Moen Pretty Dolly - Around $40-50 US on eBay. Analogue digital hybrid which sounds ultra-analogue. Is also true bypass, all metal enclosure.

    Toys R Us: First Act Delay. $39.00 and damn good. With a mod or two REALLY REALLY good.

    Damn, you beat me. There's a really long thread about that pedal too somewhere on here. You might have to dig a little, but try typing in "$39.00 Analog Delay" and you should find it. I, myself rarely use delay. At best, maybe a little reverb, and for either I just use the effects from my Korg AX1500 and keep the amp/cabinet side turned off. That's pretty much all I really need at the moment.

    The best delay for the $ you will find will be the Behringer EM600. It's a straight up Line 6 Echo Park clone, for $40. I doubt it's very road worthy, but for the bedroom, it seems to be the best deal out there.

    yeah man, look for a danecho on ebay, they go for pretty cheap used. Also, the danelectro PB&J is a little bad ass.

    I've got a DE7 that I might want to part with if you are still looking.

    My Maxtone dr-80 analog delay pedal sounds pretty good to me. Anyone heard of these? I think from the 80's, $50 cost to me.

    Try the Carl Martin Red Repeat. It's really good. The tone control for the trails is a nice touch. I think they are around $110 depending on the falling dollar.
