I think if there’s one effect that I will never have enough of it’s delay, apart from sounding pretty it consistently helps me come up with new ideas. I currently have these pedals:
Boss DD-3: I have one of those old Japanese long chip ones that I was looking to sell it for a while, but given that I’ve never received any offers for it, I decided to stick with it and I am kinda glad I did. Hold mode is really nice for creating stutters and glitchy sounds.
EQD Avalanche Run: Use this on everything, all the modes are usable and they all sound great. The reverb isn’t the most versatile ever but it sounds very good regardless.
Moog Minifooger Delay: Has loads of character and does the analog delay thing really well, the drive sounds good too. I think I am going to be selling this for a Catalinbread Belle Epoch just to try a different flavour.
OBNE Dweller (Phase Repeater): My wife got me this for my birthday, I am still learning it but I am liking what it’s capable of. It definitely has a very distinct sound and the random mode is an early favourite of mine.
Meris Enzo: Not really a delay (kinda like the Dweller) but in Dry mode the delay sounds incredible. The ability to mix that with the built in Ring Mod, Filter and Modulation gives it a completely different flavour to the rest of the pedals I have.
I would love to have an Echophon one day, I am trying to get away from pedals and focus on finishing my effects skiff (which currently only consists of the PNW) on my I tried it once at a store and I remember loving it, very inspiring.
TL;DR Yay for Delays…ays…ys…s…
