    I was searching for the delay pedal to replace my DMM,
    and thanks for the TGP's peoples recommendation, I tried some of the best delays out there.
    Then I found used Skreddy Echo on local so I bought it.

    First impression : It's Dark!
    I heard about it and many people said it was dark, but I never thought this dark!
    But darkness pros for ambient thing, cons for through out the mix.
    The modulation is very nice. I bought it because it can dial from chorus to vibrato,
    what I like about my DMM. But it never gets crazy like DMM.

    Overall it is great delay pedal. I need a wall of sound delay,
    and this fits that role.

    p.s. This does not sound like DMM, but skreddy echo has it's own thing.

    One of my most satisfying pedal purchases ever.

    Totally rules for ambient stuff. Big, soupy, washes of sound.

    My favorite delay as well. I agree, great for ambient stuff. Have you tried running it 18v?

    By far the best straight up (non-preset, menus, etc.) delay I've ever played through.

    Not yet. How is it? Better than 9v?
    I have to buy the voltage doubler to do that.. :(

    A little more headroom and maybe a tad less dark. Just something to try when you get the chance. Sometimes I forget about it but it gives the Echo another gear.

    I've had my Echo for a couple months and I love it. I use my at 18v so its more present and less dark. I use it for a shorter delay time and nothing will beat it!

    I'd be afraid it'd be too dark, but then again, I like my delay always on and sort of "behind" my sound. Good for this application?

    I tried it at 18v and felt the repeats were a bit too percussive, so I went back to 9v.

    Cool! :aok

    As coincidence would have it, I just grabbed
    one locally. Never played or owned one before,
    so this will be my first go round with a Skrecho!

    I bought one a few months ago to replace my Belle Epoch (which I loved dearly, but I needed to be able to switch off the preamp from time to time).

    Amazing delay!

    It is dark but not as murky as some other analog delay pedals out there.
    It really sits well musically.
    You will like it :)

    No, not at all. Just more up front than I wanted. Still had that same midrangey character to the repeats but didn't hang in the background as well as it does running at 9v.

    Almost word for word my initial thoughts as well. If the term soupy ever applied to a piece of music gear, it's the Skrecho. The limiter is so good. The weird thing is - I went back to the Echo after not using it for a while and it sounded a lot brighter and punchier than I remembered. :eek: lol Context from using other delays I guess.

    Have fun @la noise!

    It's a great piece. Make the most of that loop.
