    I have a memory man deluxe big box, and a Boss DD-2.
    But my main delay right now is that Catalinbread Echorec ( $220)
    However, regardless of which of these three I use, thee is always another one in there.
    And that one is a Digitech Digidelay ( $50 used )
    IT has 4 seconds, analog sim, modulated delay, reverse, looping, and tap tempo.

    I use a Malekko Ekko 616 for general echo and Nocturne Mystery Brain for slapback and tape echo effects. I have a Boss DD-2 but it collects dust these days.

    For digital - Boss DD-3
    analog - MXR Carbon Copy

    (The Boss is the one on my main board at the moment.)

    TC Nova Repeater... got mine used for about $100 (TC no longer makes that model).

    I shopped very carefully for a delay under $150 and chose it. It has plenty of features (including tap tempo) and sounds good. I'm quite happy with it.

    I see used ones for sale now and then, would like to get another as backup.


    TCE still has a page about it:

    Good luck in your search!

    I’ve had the MXR Carbon Copy for quite a while and really like it. Easy to dial in a good sound. Warm. Really sounds great with my Strat and Tele. I suppose if I was doing more exotic things with it I’d want something with tap tempo, longer delays, etc. but I just use my HD500X for that kind of stuff.

    I use the Analogman ardx20. Analog with two delay settings that you can preset, so you can switch between them. A lot of other enticing delays out there, and since I love having a nice delay, I am sometimes tempted to try another, but I keep coming to the conclusion I 'd be chasing my tail to make a lateral move, as the ardx20 is very nice.

    I'm not much of a delay guy, but the Digitech Obscura I bought on a whim is is a heck of a lot of fun, has a lot of options and sounds great.

    TC Electronics Nova Delay is a great and very versatile pedal; I took it off my main pedalboard because I liked the T-Rex Reptile's modulation better and I don't really need a taptempo. Nevertheless it's a rela working horse!
    I use the T-Rex Reptile (1st version) for slapback and long delays and a Red Panda Raster for everything in between - in general reverse delay and some weird pitch-shifting and modulation stuff.
    But then there is also my Danelectro PB&J which is also a fine little unit and now sits on my quick & dirty session-board.
    There are a gazillion opportunities out ther, I'm afraid........

    I use the Vox Time Machine.
    A great, dead simple to use delay. Has tap tempo, uo to 6sec of repeats, and digital and analog modes. You can have some modulations too.

    It sounds great too, and can be bought for not much at all 2nd hand.

    I have a Carbon Copy a Waza Craft DM-2 a DD-3 a Deluxe Memory Man an old Boss Reverb Delay and a Boss Pitch Shifter Delay (sorry can’t remember the model numbers), and I have just purchased a TC Electronic Flashback. I mostly use the Carbon Copy, but from my limited time with the Flashback I must say that I’m quite impressed. It does loads of stuff, good models of analog and I’m liking the tape setting. It also has a looper and the TC toneprint thing, lots to play around with.

    The DigiDelay and Alter Ego V2 get used the most. I made a custom Tone Print for the TC so I have a delay without modulation on it. The DigiDelay is a good all round good sounding basic delay with a looper built in that I've never used. They can be had used for little money.

    The Joyo broke not long after I got it. I fixed it, but the ribbon connector from the switch to the main circuit board still needs a decent soldering. At least better then I was able to do it.

    It didn't come in the mail yet, but I just ordered a Keeley Caverns V2. Looked great in the videos.

    I like it because it has one switch for reverb, and one for delay. I mostly play through vintage amps that don't have reverb so I rely on a pedal for reverb, which I always have on. I was looking for a delay pedal, and settled on the Keeley to save real estate on my board, and also save one port on my Voodoo Lab Pedal Power, since the Keeley is two effects in one but still runs on 9v.

    Carbon Copy or Belle Epoch. Had a Flashback and it was fine.

    I like the sound of my moog minifooger. Goes from brighter to darker as you increase delay time and has a nice sounding drive knob
