Big box DMM by a mile. My second favorite is digital: Belle Epoch.
I just got the CC deluxe version that has the bright built in. I prefer the original circuit so far but the bright circuit is a little better. Care to elaborate on what you mean by sensitive?
Honestly I think the CC may excel in more of a filler/thickening role. It will still do most of what I need.
3 head Echoplex EP-2. Analog tape with tube electronics. I don't know if it is true bypass or not, but I actually don't care because it just sounds awesome running signal through it. If you own one of these beasties, you are almost forced to have a backup machine. I have a 3 of them.
For pedals, I like the Ibanez AD-202 rackmount. These are a killer analog delay. Probably buffered, but it sounds good. For a floor pedal, the now discontinued Moog MiniFooger delay is a really cool pedal. I lucked into mine when they were being discontinued. They have a cool boosting feature with the delay that just helps the sound pop when the trails decay. Too bad those are no longer made. Again I don't know if its true bypass.
I felt the CC picked up more of my guitar pick noise then the actual note, and would modulate quicker than others I've played, so I guess more sensitive to touch? I had a trouble dialing in a proper delay that I like.
I really dug a Washburn A-AD9 I had, but the buffer wasn't very good in it. So looking for a true bypass.
There's actually a Maxon at the Guitar Center I bought the CC at. I might have to try it out
I thought that might be what you meant. I had the same issue with my TC Prophet. It’s less noticeable on the CC.
I’m beginning to think it could be guitar/ pickup related and also a lot to do with your attack.
You do have to find that “mix” setting where the wet is just below the dry signal otherwise it is going to mimic your attack on the first repeat.
Aqua puss for slapback/short stuff.
Yes, that's what I was trying to say, thank you lol
Interesting you didn't have that experience with the CC. I'm leaning towards a AD9 type at the moment
Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail is a good one.
No actually I did/do. If I get the mix too high with the CC then I have that happen. Not necessarily a bad thing but it just isn’t what I want. When you cut it down to diminish that effect then the delay effect become more subtle. If you want a super thick delay without that initial “pluck” it may not get there.
I think any version of the CC is a great delay but I don’t think it will do ALL the sounds properly. As is the case with many pedals.
I may actually get a second delay for the board at some point so I’m interested to see what you come up with.
Some of the more advanced delays may have some type of compressor feature built in that squashes that initial attack.
I love the insert jack on the Vapor Trail. It allows the echoes to have their own effect. I've used phaser, distortion, and another delay in there.
I've only ever owned a Carbon Copy and I love it. It's a little dark sounding but nothing i can't compensate for. There's a lot of different sounds in that small metal box. I'm yet to open the back and fiddle with the modulation pots.
I stuck a Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail at the end of my chain 2 years ago (none of my amps have fx loops) and have never moved it since. Warm and versatile. Love it.
My favorite analog delay stomps (in order):
1. Maxon AD999 (I own THREE!)
2. Way Huge Aqua Puss
3. Boss DM-2
Basically, the darker the better for me.
Malekko 616 & Strymon Brigadier.
EHX Deluxe Memory Man... I'd be happy with any of the variants. I have one of the Xvive chip loaded 1100-TT models. Love it and the extra functions over the old ones, got it at a price that made it impossible to look at the ones with NOS panasonic chips.
don't think dlx mem man is tb... at least originals weren't. easily the most musical analog delay ever. my absolute fav. I owned a few but sold when I built a madbean total recall which is a true bypass clone of the mm. Not for the faint of heart, and not 100% true to the original... but man it has the 'mojo' I got from the mm in spades.
I have a carbon copy... have owned maxon ad150, dod performer 585, dm2... several others. they all have some things they do really well. If you've never tried a mm, then you have no baseline to compare all others.
I like them as analogue as they come.
Ibanez AD-80 by leaps and bounds.
Haven't found anything that comes close yet.
The murky as hell Carbon Copy is one of the very few pedals I've flipped with no regrets at all...
