there's a beauty to the short 300 ms delays though. thats why I have a DM-2, AD-80 on my board as well as a Carbon Copy and an AD-999 for the long ones.Replace the MXR with a 616 and I would completely agree. If my vintage AD-9 had more delay time it would never leave my board.
Agree. Boss DM-2 being my number one pick.BOSS DM-2
MXR Carbon Copy
which AD-80 did you try? the re-issue is a nice pedal, but the old school big box 18volt is something else. pretty pricey these days. worth it though if you love a nice 300msMalekko Echo 600 Dark. ....I just recently aquired another (thanks to pwrightmd) after selling 2 and having 1 stolen. I have tried the 616, aqua puss original and reissue, multiple dm2's, ad80, and a carbon copy.
And in my opinion the E600 Dark is the best....exp pedal control, tb/buffered bypass switch, 600ms of awesome sounding delay in a small cool looking box. And if you like it can do some pretty wild self oscillation spaceship stuffs. I could not be happier to have finally have one of these back in my rig. The ad-80 would be my second choice as far as overall tone.
I had an old first edition? The one with original style enclosure it ran off of 2 9 volts and had the mn3005. It sounded amazing and I would like to het another but I like the E600 dark just a hair more because I love the sound, the extra delay time and the other additional features. The original ad80 is definately my second favorite for small analog delay....what a kick ass sound.which AD-80 did you try? the re-issue is a nice pedal, but the old school big box 18volt is something else. pretty pricey these days. worth it though if you love a nice 300ms
