    I use a Danelctro Reel Echo which is quite versatile and I love it. However it's too bloody big for my pedal board and may get retired soon.

    BOSS DD-3, 0r DD-2, whatever they are. I have a few of them and they work great.

    I dig analog myself so I use a Boss DM2 as my main delay and I also use a DLS EchoTap which is a combo of analog signal and digital processing ..

    Line 6 ~ToneCore ~ Echo Park
    see~

    http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/tonefreaks/1743-analog-vs-digital-delay-do-you-play.html

    They've figured out how to add wow and flutter plus Tape Wabble.
    You also get Analog , Digital and Tape Delays even Reverse. It's stereo ,also built
    like a Tank.

    Watch the Demo. If this doesn't sell you and my review, then nothing will and
    you'd be making a HUGE mistake .

    Plus I get a few cents for endorsing it. ( Joking )

    I just sold my echo park.. unfortunately, but it is hands down the best stomp box delay on the market.

    The Line 6 delay modeller is also super sweet, but its too big for me to lug around to gigs.

    The Echo Park SMOKES in the loop *which is where a delay should be anyway* but I found it had a touch of hiss in front of my older Marshalls. Nothing that I couldn't overlook, but a mild annoyance. In the loop it was dead silent, easy to use, and the most full featured stomp box delay I've ever owned.

    I give it 7 thumbs up. :D

    The secret to the noise is to buy the power supply that Line 6 makes exactly for it . Don't know exactly why.

    It also beats carrying around my Rack Rig to small gigs.

    Ive never been much for delay units, guess its just me but I did enjoy that reverse echo I could see some possible uses for me.

    I use a Boss DD-3 with the Analogman High Cut mod, digital quality with an analog feel.......... sounds great!

    You probably would dig the DD3 with the analogman high cut mod, its a 3 position toggle with the middle being stock, to the left it gets slightly darker on the repeats and to the right it get a bit more darker and really warms up the delay!

    CS ~ For me it's not about affording one.
    ( Well maybe it is, but in another way" Price of the tapes" )

    I've used them forever,but the tapes are a pain in the butt.
    They can just stop echoing in the middle of a gig or recording session.
    It seems that the tape can only go around so many times before
    something happens to the oxide on the tape and it won't record anymore.
    It's not like I ever carried one of those huge cartridges with me. If I did,it would get smashed with all the gear being moved around anyway.

    Tapes were about $15.00 U.S. way back .

    HOWEVER~ an Echoplex is an Echoplex and Nothing can give
    you that sound that I love so much :mad:

    Though the Echo Park is the closest I've ever come.

    My EchoTap does a very nice Echoplex simulation !! It has a vintage factor knob so you can control how much the repeats breakup and warble !

    Well I'm open to anything that may do exactly what I want.

    Which is the vintage factor knob ?

    Tape-Plex
    I've listened to this demo ( But the Guy just plain SUCKS , that it's scary ! :eek2: )

    The Echo tone knob changes the dynamics of the delay .. To the way left it is very digital sounding with very accurate repeats but as you turn it to the right it starts to sound more broken up and the repeats have more degradation with each echo like an Echoplex and with it to the extreme right you get some very convincing tape warble ! The tap tempo is good to have to as well as 2 different programable delay settings on the fly !
