    Need a delay for distorted tones that is small, takes a boss style 9v adapter and is quiet and doesn't sound muddy or digital. 500ms or less is fine.

    Gets my vote! Chad has some on Ebay for $135 they are normally $150 the Deeelay is very quiet and has True Bypass!

    also a Boss DD-3 with Analogman high cut mod is great!

    I've got a Cmatmods deelay and a couple other of his pedals coming. Look for a video review soon!

    For $60 you can get a used Digidelay. Very under rated pedal. Not too fancy but has several delay options including tap tempo. I like its lo-fi tape delay setting for slap back. Can be set up for longer delays, up to 2 secs, and with high-fi sounds as well.

    I've had a couple of them. Digitech's X series pedals are nice but they are flakey and unreliable. Two digidelay's I had went bad and I had to send my digiverb back to digitech to get it repaired.

    I really like the Guyatone MD-3. It sounds great and is the smallest one around.

    How about the DE7? Digital yes, but sounds very good and is cheap!

    Another vote for the MP Deep Blue Delay. Does everything you list, but involves dropping some coin.

    For $150, this is a no-brainer given the OP's requirements.

    Jacques Prisoner or Analogman AR200 are both small and sound great; neither is true bypass, so it would depend on how you get along with the buffer -- I use them w/ an A/B box because space is not an issue. but most here seem to be ok with the buffers on both
