    I am asking this for a friend.


    What (pref) analog, delay is out there, for good ol' fashion rockabilly slapback ?
    No need for an fancy unit with 25 features - just good 'ol (realistic sounding) slapback will do.
    PS : $200.00 MAX (...pref less)
    The band can get as raunchy as the Horror Pops, so they do not just do light foot tapin' Rockabilly.
    Maybe even the odd Cramps & Rev Horton Heat cover.

    Guitars will be Gretsch Electromatics, Epiphone Broadway & Gibson LP Jr.

    Thanx to all :wave:

    Just about anything, really. If you want to go with a pedal that does some tape warble effect, there are fancier ones out there but for one or maybe two repeats, I think the tape emulation is going to be largely lost in a band setting. I use an older Analogman pedal but the MXR, Ibanez, Electro-Harmonix and a bunch of others all make solid pedals that'll do great for a slapback.

    Not to derail the thread, but last time I (tried to...) play some rockabilly stuff, I noticed that I preferred more tight, tape-emulated repeats, than analogue settings. So, for that genre (and with that budget) I would look for a digital pedal that can emulate tape repeats (most of them do, actually).

    Other than that, if it's only analogue, the vast majority of them will serve your friend well. What Rich said, actually.

    Just for slapback?
    A Danelectro Echo will get you there in a warm and convincing manner for around $20.00 or so...

    The Aqua Puss is the crowned king for this specific purpose. It really can't do much else but if you want that really great sounding rockabilly slapback, seriously check out the Aqua Puss by Way Huge.

    Not analog, but I really like the slapback setting on the Hardwire Delay. The MXR Carbon Copy is analog and works really well also.

    I have an old Danelectro "Corned Beef" reverb pedal that does a pretty nice slapback effect. Not quite as good as my "Carbon Copy" delay, but you can pick up a Corned Beef really cheap...
