I,m old school...I just need something to thicken up my sound, without losing quality.
Mad Professor Deep Blue Delay.
Ibanez DE7. Dirt cheap too.
Way Huge Aqua Puss.
In addition to the good mentions, mxr carbon copy. Good tone, small foot print and well priced.
Is there much difference between the analog and digital Way Huge delay ?
Another vote for the Deep Blue Delay. Simple, but really nice sounding.
Lots of choices out there, but hard to go wrong with the DE-7. Really is that good...
MXR Carbon Copy, Mad Professor Deep Blue Delay, Catalinbread Belle Epoch, Way Huge Aqua Puss. I think you cannot go wrong with any of those. Check out some youtube videos on those and choose the one you like the most.
This is good site to check out as it has links to youtube videos on all the effects:
I've always loved my Carbon Copy. Random impulse buy 8 years ago. After 5 years of heavy abuse, the circuit board needed replacing. Dunlop did it for free.
Based on the many threads and thoughts here? Play within the mouth of a cave. It also comes with natural reverb. No shimmer or BPM though.
Carbon copy is an excellent choice. Really there are so many options out there, but about anything on the market can make a good thickener.
This long and no one mentioned the memory lane jr?
I recommend either the wampler faux analog delay or the earthquaker devices dispatch master, both very natural sounding easy to use delays.
Another vote for the CC. I heard about it here(TGP), bought one, bought two, and never looked back. Awesome for any basic delay use in any set-up not requiring tap tempo.
If all you need is to "thicken" your sound, Any dark voiced delay, or any delay with a tone knob should work. This is of course based on my preconceived ideas of "thickening" is. In my mind, I see a "thickening" as a short delay that doesn't have the highs my dry signal does, which gives the effect that my guitar is suddenly occupying more frequencies.
I've also seen guys use a tape delay set to an even shorter slapback with somewhat distorted repeats instead of purely darker repeats and give the illusion that there is just "more" guitar, that the sustain is increased, and that there is a gain increase (because there sort of is, but not in a way that muddys up your original dry sounds).
But those are the recipes I've seen and liked brother. I guess it depends on what effect you're going for and how you want yo achieve it. Care to share a little more about what you want?
