    I have a Dan Echo too. It's very versatile especially the slapback switch, instant 1950's!

    I've owned gobs of delays, analog, digital -- even tape.

    The two best I've ever used for live work are the Boss DD3 (wish I still had it) and Mad Professor Deep Blue (presently on my board).

    I think the analog is always better rep is a lot of hooey.

    Well ok, i have no experience with a delay pedal, and I play all kinds of stuff, but nothing well. jazz, blues, soft rock, Christmas carols. No metal or anything like Zeppelin. So good suggestions all.

    If I had to pick one simple, do a lot delay, it would be Hardwire DL-8.

    But I also own....... here goes.

    PDS 20/20 and 8000, VFE Ravine and Möbius, Adineko, Hermida EPH-3 and MultiTap, Lovepedal Stir Of Echos and DL 1.6. Also a Jamman Delay that has a phrase looper and a synced 16sec delay.

    In racks I've got RDS 4000, Lexicon Vortex and Jamman, and my old Art SGX-2000, I love that old Art thing because it has analog filters/eq, tube and solid state preamps and pitch effects setting in front all kinds of delay/reverb types.

    I have to keep the mix just above 0 - yep, that far down. Even all the way down, its adding something to the sound and just above there seems to be a sweet spot for a nice delay that you hear but its not quite so obvious. Above that, it becomes really present and that has its place, but I like to use it just enough to enhance the tone.

    A very underrated delay. Wish I still had mine.

    Behind my beard.
    I built my own using a kit from ebay.

    It's PT2399-based, and I built it as I fancied a signal boost (for solos), and delay, in the same box.

    Monkeyed with the feedback resistor of the summing stage, and hey presto!

    For 'shop bought', I really don't think you can go wrong with a Boss DD-3.
