    It can be new or used. I am looking for a good delay. I'm not up to speed on the whole analog vs. digital thing. As long as it sounds good and doesn't suck tone I'm open to it. :bonk

    MXR Carbon Copy- $132 @ Amazon
    Way Huge Aqua Puss II- $125 @ Amazon
    Hardwire DL-8 (Digital)- - $130 @ Amazon- Probably the best budget delay out. It sounds phenomenal. The Analog, Lo-Fi and Tape modes are fantastic. Actually all the modes are great. The looper is fine but obviously pretty minimal as far as loopers go.

    Any 3 of those would be a great delay pedal. I own all 3, along with about 7 others- everything from a DOD-FX90 to a Timeline- and all 3 of these hold their space for what they do.

    If one of these don't do it for you, then nothing "budget" will.

    The Nova Repeater and the Line 6 Echo Park are the best pedal values I've come across.

    Carbon Copy running at 12V (if you've a PP2+ or Supacharger or similar 12/16V capable power supply, I strongly recommend it, makes it a helluva delay) :)

    +1 for Boss DD-5. Nice delay with a lot of settings plus external tap.

    All of these suggestions are good really, there's a lot of good stuff available for cheap luckily. I think the most important thing is that you figure out if you like analog or digital better, or if there are any special features you might want (modulation, tap tempo, etc.).

    For a guy like me that likes analog delay with no bells and whistles, the EHX Memory Boy and Memory Toy are awesome. Both are very cheap (new or used), and they sound great. They both even have modulation, even though I don't use it.
