    I like their PB & J delay. Long and short modes, very analog sounding. Not roadworthy, but was like $30-$40. I’ve had mine for decades, still sounds great. Good luck on your quest!

    The Danelectro FAB 600ms Delay is awesome for like $25 new. If you're worried about roadworthiness, get two! lol

    I really like the Danelectro tremolo. I have the same one I got when they came out, just gets tossed in a bag with cables and pedals and dropped in the trunk. Plastic but quite sturdy.

    AVOID the Mosky Blue Delay. Attenuates effected volume and degrades the bypassed tone.

    I have the Donner Yellow Fall which I believe is the same pedal and I don’t experience that. I do run it in my effects loop if that makes a difference.

    Best cheapies I’ve found are the Donner Yellow Fall and Boost Killer, also the Mooer Yellow Comp. I’ve tried quite a few and these are the standouts for me. Any many others from what I read.

    I think that's basically what that newer, inexpensive TC Electronics line is all about... rehousing Behringer circuits in a metal casing.

    That said, I've had a couple of Behringer pedals on my board for a few years now with no issues. I only play 'around town' though.

    I have a Caline Time Space for my bedroom setup. The housing is big and solid. The delay sounds fine. (I like Boss DD delays on my main board so that's the ballpark I am going for). I paid aud$31 for it new a couple of years ago (about $usd20). I haven't taken it on the road.

    The Boss SD-1 has long been a favorite of mine. I've called it my "desert island" pedal. But lately I've been using my Joyo Vintage Overdrive more. It is really good at what it does.

    Comparing it's construction to an Ibanez TS-9, the Joyo uses an electrolytic .22uf cap in the tone control, whereas the Ibanez uses a Tantalum capacitor. I replaced to tone cap in my Joyo with a Tantalum and like the pedal even more now.
