    Help me find a nice 2nd delay for on board.
    I have a Providence Chrono Delay, which is very good but it's lacking a little bit of warmth. So I'm searching for one that has more warmth.
    I don't want to spend massive amounts.

    There's one more problem: It needs to be sold in Europe, because I can't pay for shipping from the US.

    What I've listed so far are:
    Maxon AD10 or AD9 Pro
    Way Huge Aqua Puss or Supa Puss.
    MXR Carbon Copy

    I hope you guys can help me make a longer list, so I have more options.

    Thanks!

    +1 for the maxon
    With a bit of luck, you can find a vintage one (AD9) for a reasonable price (time to start a collection ?)

    There are some retailers but not many. I think Diamond has more retailers but still the pedals are quite rare. So I'm looking for alternatives.

    I have seen a AD999, but seems a little expensive for the way I'll use it.
    It's just for widening the sound a little. Short feedback and not to much mix.
    I love Maxon's BTW. I have the OD 808 and 820, so I do love their pedals.

    A lot of people seem to love the CC, but it's quite dark.
    Just looking for alternatives.

    Probably a Fulltone SSTE, I've given up finding a delay pedal that comes even close to an old EP-3.

    I saw one of those on a couple of websites. So I understand these are quite good?

    Haven't seen many Seymour Duncan pedals around...

    + 4 on the Moog Minifooger Delay.

    It is a really nice delay.

    It also has a DRIVE section that is very useful.

    I also serves really well as a stand alone mid gain drive.

    It got 22db of Drive where a Tube Screamer has 26db.

    The new DM-2w is great, really warm and blendy.

    The AD999 is awesome too. Get one used and it's not that much. You'll end up using it for more, too.

    As has been said already, the Moog Minifooger. It's a great value and a great sounding, versatile delay.

    This is true - i have one myself and don't really use it as my standard delay because of this (TC Flashback is my small board pedal as it can do so many different delays - 2290, reverse, mod, slapback, vintage etc at a turn of a dial - no screwing around with menus like on my TimeFactor)

    That being said, you did say you want a "warmer sound" which the CC certainly has (anyone explain the difference between "warm" and "dark" :dunno). Also have to admit i was playing throug my CC the other day (admittedly through brighter amp than i usually play with) and it sounded great even with humbuckers.

    They're a bit on the rare side these days, but I pair my Providence Chrono with a Lotus Yellow delay that definitely adds the warmth the Chrono lacks in my rig. That's exactly how I use mine.

    They're out of production now, but they pop up pretty reasonably cheaply every now and then. Here's Pete Thorn's video:

    My next delay will be the Chase Bliss delay pedal - whenever it comes out.

    Well, IMO dark is an exaggeration of warm. Maybe even a little bit muddy and loss of clearity.
    But I understand what you ment. And I agree that some amps handle them better. Especially the youtube video's I've seen. Some are great, some aren't.

    The Carbon Copy is a good choice.

    I had the Chrono.

    Closest thing to a TC2290 in pedal form (but no modulation)....super clean repeats.

    If you want something almost as clean, yet warm, analog is not the way to go IMHO.

    I'd check out a made in Japan Boss DD2 (or the MIJ version of the Boss DD3). nearly as clean repeats as the Chrono, but warmer.

    I like the Chrono very much too! But in some cases I just need a little bit of warmth.

    I like a lot of delay's that are on the market now. Analog as wel as digital.
    But he, choosing pedals to buy has never been easy....
