Suggest a warm, analog or analogish delay that doesn't brighten the bypassed signal??

    doesn't matter. i'll take cheap and expensive solutions. I am not a huge delay guy, just using it for thickening a wee bit and also some triply clean stuff. must play well with other dirt or fuzz pedals if possible...

    I have a Digitech DL-8 stuck on the analog mode. It's not too bright, not too dark & doesn't add fizz to your fuzz.

    Maybe let us know what delays you are perceiving is brightening up the original tone? I think the Carbon Copy and Aqua Puss are great but at least one person here thought the CC brightened up the original tone (but I don't on my rig)

    +1 on Carbon Copy. T. Rex Replica, although the delay is less analog and more just ... gorgeous. :p -E

    no true bypass delays should be brightening up your tone when not engaged.

    if you already have a buffered delay you like you might look into getting a true-bypass loop.

    I just read the OP more closely and your right, bypass signal is not changed on a true bypass pedal. I thought he meant the original tone during operation.

    Cmatmods Deeelay is really inexpensive and sounds better than a lot of much more expensive delays that I have tried.

    my same tone-quest : Maxon is best at what you are requesting, the AD999pro is the best but it eats out the attack of the note so I ruled it out, the standard AD999 is the best
