    Gday all, I’m after some advice before purchasing an analogue true bypass delay. There are so many out there I really don’t know where to start.
    Can anyone recommend a good delay that’s reasonably priced.
    Thanks very much in advance!

    Mosky Blue Delay - a clone of the Mad Professor Deep Blue Delay.
    Donner Yellow Fall - not sure what it copies, if anything

    Got both for $30-ish each, both pretty good, prefer the Mosky.

    Mooer Ana Echo is pretty good for not a lot of money.

    I can't afford delays I won't use, so reasonably priced is around $200 for an AD, which is generally the most expensive pedal I use.

    The Maxon AD9 Pro is more, but used ones get down into my price range.

    Depends on how long of a delay you seek? Simple slap back or very lush long delays?

    I use the MXR Carbon Copy for slap-back and find it just perfect to my ears. The Aqua Puss would be the same, but more versatile for long delays. The TC Flashback has a crazy amount of versatility and the analog simulation isn't bad for digital.

    The thing about that Carbon Copy that many don't show in the videos is that Modulation switch....that is what makes that pedal really shine.

    Love my MXR Carbon Copy. I'm not good at pedals, but you can't get a bad sound out of it. Use it on my acoustic as well.
