I'd go for a small modeler and use it soley for effects. Hotone Ampero Mini is small but will allow up to 9 effects. I use the Ampero II stomp for my delays, the sounds are excellent. The A2S is surprising in how good it sounds, on par with the Helix to my ears.
The Mojo Hand Park Theatre has an echo time and a feedback control, plus dry/mix, and is a very cool pedal.
Might not do everything a straight up delay or a reverb does, but it bridges the gap between the Sonic concepts of reverb and delay in a very usable way. And reverb is a delay, technically, so it was nice to have MHFX explore the concepts. It isn’t a one-trick pedal, either. You can get straight slap back or beautiful washy reverb, or go out way past Pluto and channel your inner Jonny Greenwood. I have found a lot spots within the settings that all do
Something a little different.
I started using my Ibanez AD9 for dirty texture (self oscillation)… sort of like an ambient pad, which was one of the ways I used to set the Line 6 DL4. Now that I played the Park Theatre, and bought one, I’ve very nearly retired the Ibanez and Line 6. It’s so easy with three knobs.
This is the hard to find FD-900 Delay from MUZA. This unit has been getting great player reviews and comments and now another chance for you to pick up one of these great floor effects which will add huge space and delay modulations to your sound. This is the latest version of great sounding FD-90 Delay/Reverb that had gotten a very good buzz and word of mouth and then became very hard to attain.... until now. I have a few of these units (brand new) that I am offering here! The new FD900 features all the acclaimed tones and options as the original FD-90, but now features dual line outs, where on the FD90, a "Y" adapter was required to obtain line out to seperate amps. Improved clarity and a new appearance is also present.

I have an RV-6 that can certainly add a delay. I use it on my board frequently for reverb. If you told me I could only have one though, it would be the Dispatch Master. It can do just a digital delay, just a glorious reverb, or a stellar combination of both.
Oh, and I have an EQD Avalanche, which has a little more tweakability, but the reverb is not the same as the DM, and the DM is just something special. Get one in on of the nifty, limited-edition paintjobs.
