    If you're referring to my post, I meant quarter PLUS dotted 8ths together. It doesn't have that setting. Otherwise, yes, great pedal.

    Ha! Good description. It's nice to be able to come to you guys and weed out the ones that false colored, fake, or just bad news!

    I use (in no particular order), a Boss DD-2 that I've had since the '80's, a Digitech DigiDelay (can be found used cheap. simple and good sounding) and a TC Alter Ego V2, the one in the little box. I went online and created a tone print that I use all the time. I wanted at least one voice without modulation. My favorite delay is a rackmount Ibanez DM-2000 that I've also owned since the '80's. The last time I saw Dickey Betts he was using one. I've used it with guitar, in PA systems, anything that needs some echo. You can't program it, but sounds great.

    I also have a Joyo Digital Delay. The cable to the switch broke after a short period of time. I fixed it, but I don't trust it. It has some hum now.

    Of all the modes, which ones did you like better?

    Do you need tap tempo?

    Do you prefer it smaller or footprint doesn't matter?


    Do you care if it's actually analog or digital?

    You really should check out the "regular old" Flashback.
    Not overly complex, at all. Certainly no more than most of the other suggested options.
    And you don't need to download any Toneprints, as the pedal has plenty of great settings already built into it.

    I love mine.

    Option 2:
    If you want a "set it and forget it" delay, grab a little Dano PB&J. It looks like toy - and certainly isn't built for a lot of heavy stomping - but it's one of the best-sounding delays I've ever heard.
    I use mine for an "always on" delay.

    For an inexpensive, simple, analog sounding delay, checkout the Donner Yellow Fall.

    I have been using a Rogue Analog Delay for simple slapback echo, and I love the sound I get with it. For a cheap pedal (about $30.00 US) it seems durable so far, and I have felt no need to get anything fancier. I know they are probably considered not of high build quality, but mine seems solid and has been trouble free.

    Nova Delay is great. Simple interface and can do several subdivisions including quarter + .8th. Good prices on these also.
