Maybe you guys ought to direct your GAS to the other side of the pacific.

Came across a few cool gear from Japan, including what looks like a Pete Cornish TES based delay pedal - kind of obvious from the box design and knobs: http://www.providence.jp/providence_e/fx_series/fx_2.html

Apparently, a lot of pros in Japan use Providence, so they're way up there (including the price). They've got other cool pedals too, check 'em out.

+1 on the skrydstrup if you want a Pete Cornish "inspired" delay...

That Providence delay-82 looks nothing like a TES...
I've played/seen a TES in person, and that thing's way off... even if it is just "inspired".

Or you could just...just throwing it out there...buy the real thing :D
The real thing ??
I know what you mean - TES inspired delay. But the TES was inspired by tape delays (and perhaps by the TC 2290 as well)
I´ve played both and although the TES is a very nice delay pedal the Skrydstrup is the best pedal based delay I´ve ever heard - bar none.
It also has tap tempo (no such thing on the Cornish) which I like very much.
I fact the only delay I´ve heard that is a match or better for the Skrydstrup is a TC 2290.
Just my 2 cents....

Thats good to know. I haven't seen too many people who have had the luxury of playing both. Does the Skrydstrup have a buffer do you know?

iuno, I agree with stress... just get the real deal (if you can afford it)!
A buddy of mine who lives a few miles away has the newer TES, and he brought it over a few months back, and I just LOVED it. So nice and warm sounding... Worth the coin, IMO. I was supposed to get on the list at Bassexchange, but then I cancelled, but now I wanna' get back on...

The Skrydstrup gear looks VERY close to Cornish's stuff in terms of visuals... and the pedals all seem to have the same concept behind them... iuno.

I've dropped Steen an email regarding his. If the waits not too long i may get one and do a shootout when my TES arrives.

I played through a Providence today. All I can say is WOW! It sounded delicious. Very reminiscent to a warm 2290

Im very intrigued about the Steen pedal also/however being a huge fan and owner of the TC2290 I must admit I get a little skeptical when people compare them!

The one thing I wish Pete Cornish did was a Compressor - I notice on Steens pic page he does have a few, that is also something im very interested in!

Pete uses the DD2 for the now obsolete chip that is sadly no longer available. Dont think it is a rehoused DD2 - he whacks his own circuits in there and even gives you a copy of the schematic when purchased!!

I have his Super Chorus which uses the CE2 - it weighs a ton as it has all sorts of stuff going on inside as well as mixers/buffers/IEC powersupply

The engineer guy @ Providence had helped Mr. Cornish to develope the rigs for Sir Paul McCartney several years ago. And he is one of a few people who was permitted to repair Cornish products. Very nice guy too.

And this is what I call TES-inspired Delay pedal. :)
