What is your go to delay pedal ?? and why ?
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.
Ibanez analog delay
BOSS DD-3, 0r DD-2, whatever they are. I have a few of them and they work great.
Boss DD-3 or DD-6.
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
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.
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!
I had a DD3 but the repeats were too perfect !! I really dig analog !! My DM2 rocks !
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!
Echoplex, but who can afford one
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
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 ?
I've listened to this demo ( But the Guy just plain SUCKS , that it's scary ! )
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 !
I'll have to check one out when I get to a store.
I can't Imagine why they'd let that guy do that particular Demo !
Ohh dont judge the EchoTap by that demo on the DLS website !! The guy must be on crack !! I have the ChrusVib too and neither sounds like the demo's !!
