    A lot of you seem to make all of this a lot harder on yourselves than it needs to be.

    It depends on my mood. Sometimes I want delay, sometimes I want reverb. And I try not to use it to the point where it washes everything out.

    I'm like other people on here in that I use a DD-3 for delay exclusively. There's other pedals with newer designs that can do more but I've never heard a pedal, analog or digital, that does delay better.

    I love them both. I always use the built-in reverb of my DR and CPR and/or a Dunlop Echoplex. It fits the sounds in my head.

    I'm so used to Delay (the subtile type of delay I don't hear the fx of delay I respond to the emotional context , the feel of the delay, then theres the obvious de-de-de-de lay- now-now-now-now

    Having to cover songs that have delay I've learned to use it. It's not on all the time though.

    I use a T-Rex Replica because I need tap tempo to sync with the drums.

    I also have a good reverb pedal from Tech 21.

    I do not like it. It interferes with my judgement of timing. It is a feature in my Boss Katana and I also don't use reverb in my Princeton which I bought solely for it's sound.

    I use a delay only to pretend I’m Brian May playing Brighton Rock.

    It's pretty hard to have a single setting that is useful for all contexts. If you're just playing by yourself, it's sometimes fun to crank up the repeats. I have a dynamic delay in the Eleven Rack that is pretty confusing to use, but it either unmutes the delay when you stop playing, or mutes it. I haven't figured out what the best way to do that is.

    As far as "analog" vs. "digital", I figured if you roll off the high and maybe low end on a digital, you're 90% of the way to what people are talking about. I sometimes make my own DSP effects but I haven't bothered to spend much time on that.

    Bottom line, I do like it, but haven't really figured out the right way to use it.

    Delay is where I get my modulation. It just sounds best there.

    Honestly I think it's that some pedals don't click with some players.

    I play bass and as much as I want to do the funky Bootsie envelope filter slap & pop, I play straight-forward Jamerson style bass. It is what it is.....

    Boss RV-6 has a bunch of great reverbs...and also a Delay+ mode that combines reverb with delay. It's a cool pedal!

    I hate delays. I just cancelled a Walmart.com order that's 5 days late.
