    Thanks for the insight, Marc. For practical reasons the highest I can run mine at the moment is 12v, but I'm really enjoying the difference from 9v. Proud to say my board will soon have more Skreddy on it than any other maker :cool:

    I still want a big box dual Echo. Would love to be able to quickly switch between an EVH style slapback and a big soupy wash.

    Interesting. Maybe wire them up so the outputs are switched but they both get an input signal even when the other one is selected, so there won't be a moment of silence in the delay when the channel is switched.

    Yep; the difference between 12v and 9v is much more pronounced than the difference between 12v and 18v.

    Yes! Add the mix knob mod, which you've done for me in the past, and ditch the effects loop (if that will save space), and you can go ahead and send me the PayPal invoice right now! :D

    This would very much be in line with a potential stereo Echo product in which I could have switching options. 1: stereo, 2: long mono, 3: two switchable channels.

    While we're on the subject of pedal ideas, any chance you'd release a Gilmour-in-a-box kinda thing with a Muff variant, Swirl, and Echo in it, a la Foxrox Captain Coconut? Even in a limited run, that would be insane.

    Tried the 12v on my Skreddy Echo.
    It became better for my taste of use.
    The delay sound became more 'present' than 9v, and the modulation gets heavier.
    Like Marc said it seems like slightly boost the clean sound.
    What a great delay pedal.

    Just got mine today. F.A.N.T.A.S.T.I.C. going to do some recording this weekend with it. I am running mine at 12V and it is damn near perfect. The repeats are in fact murkier than my DMM, especially so at 9V. I find running it at 12V brightens up the repeats just enough. Love the modulation on this. The decays are just beautiful...there is a midrange to them that sort of reminds me of my Memory Lane V1, but they don't get chirpy and lofi. Just beautiful!

    I love your youtube clips that you've made.
    Really fantastic sounding tele and fender amps.
    Willing to see your clip of Skreddy Echo :D

    So how does it compare to a real DM-2, not that waza thing?

    I've had my skrecho for a few years and I keep taking it off my board in favor of some other delays(mostly because of tap... I really need tap) but always end up coming back to it. I've even sold it once and then bought it back from the guy. I used it this weekend and fell in love all over again.

    If there were ever a deluxe model I'd love to see tap tempo or an oscillation switch.

    Just got mine in today and it completely blew me away. It's really one of those pedals that staisfies you the moment you turn it on.
    Thank you TGPers for steering me in the right direction with this one. Wouldn't have found it without you guys.

    It's a delicious pedal. So tasty.

    I don't even think of it as a delay pedal, rather an experience inducer.

    Can't wait to get home from work and try it out at 12v.
    What are you fellas putting in the loop, besides the obvious phaser?

    I've put everything from a Fuzz Factory, to another delay (sometimes my other Skreddy....excessive, I know) but it's cool like that.

    I tried mine out tonight at 12v, and now I need to spend some more time experimenting with it tomorrow. The modulation definitely got stronger, but I swear the repeats were not as strong or percussive. This is counter intuitive to what I expected. I thought the repeats would seem more pronounced. Maybe it is because they are a little brighter, so there is a touch less low end which makes them seem a little more subtle? I definitely need to spend some more time going back and forth tomorrow. I had to keep flipping my board over to switch my dip switch from 9 to 12v, so my sonic memory is probably not very accurate.

    I'm still running my Skreddy Echo at 12v : which sounds better for my taste than 9v.
    You won't regret buying this great pedal @Moontrills !! :)
