MXR Carbon Copy. Some say it's dark. I like dark.
Yeah, I've never heard a complaint about it. I guess if you want the simplest thing for the least money, a dd3 or something is up your alley. But the dispatch master is one of those effects I think everyone ought to at least look at.
TC Alter Ego v2 is about $89.00 used.
TC Flashback. Does it all well. The 2290 template is great! I like the EP-3 template.
Keep in mind if you are just after a subtle delay then I find analogue delays sit easier in the mix. Digital delays are more fussy about being synch’ed with the time.
I love my Boss DM2 Waza but if I were to buy another digital delay I would want a tap tempo.
I have a Catalinbread Echorec that I'm very fond of, but it was over $200.
Another thing would be the Line 6 M5. about 99.00. It has rea;lly nice delays and is a swiss army knife so to speak. Very easy to use.
I'm relatively new to delays, currently have a Eqd Dispatch Master, Vfe BluePrint and couple weeks ago picked up Boss GigaDelay DD20...each one was under $100 used.
My favorite digital delay is the now discontinued Hardwire DL-8. I love the fact that it has a slapback mode that is pretty much a set it and forget it sound for me. I also own a Boss DD-3 and a MXR Carbon Copy, both excellent delays in their own right, but there's just something about the Hardwire. Once I put it on my main board it has never left.
The Hardwire is an update of the Digidelay. Nice
A DD-7 can be had for $100
If you want a great sounding, killer analog delay that isn't over complicated and a breeze to use (and did I say it sounds amazing?), I'd go for a used Boss DM-2W. I love mine. Would take it over a Carbon Copy any day of the week. There's one on Reverb right now for $83 (no affiliation to the seller).
I'm a simple guy and I'm happy with my Aqua Puss, it does your basic analog slapback stuff perfectly, big dials easy to adjust on stage. If I were getting a second delay I'd go for the Boss DD-3. Tough, cheap, surprising quality.
The Dispatch Master is a digital delay, correct?
Correct it is a digital delay, but it is voiced a bit darker like an analog delay. The reverb sounds like a Hall to me. The two blend together perfectly. I used it for a long time and then swapped it for the Belle Epoch, just because every now and then you want to change things up. I just put the Dispatch Master back and it was like, "Ah yes, now I'm home!"
I've always wanted one of those...always too pricey at any given moment.
Man I always browse through reverb and put stuff on my watchlist, then when I'm ready to pull the trigger BAM! There are a few on there right now under 150.
Yeah. The dispatch master is pricy compared to the lower priced delays and reverb, but considering it's both in one unit, it's actually quite a good deal if you want both.
Used Boss DD-5. I keep mine on pretty much all the time, with the mix set low.
TC Flashback. I'm sure you can get them for under $100 used. I'm selling mine cause I just upgraded to Flashback 2 -- three toneprints. Use one for chorus. Killer.
The Mad Professor Deep Blue Delay is a good choice. My favorite delay, is just sounds more natural than other delays. My only complaint is that is needs more delay time.
