Yeah but is it true bypass?
I looove the aqua puss.
Yeah, really nice. Mine is 9v reissue. BTW, in my mini pedalboard, I've used Keeley Caverns v2 to make better use of the tiny space.
My fave one is my only one: An EHX Nano. It does a limited, but pleasing chorus sound too.
I never use it, though. I got it for a band that never materialized.
Just saw this....
isn’t that because it’s ... digital?
For my ears it has to be the Mad Professor - Deep Blue Delay. Works well clean but shines with a touch of dirt!
I don't believe in "true bypass" so my favorite analog delay is a Boss DM-2W.
also .... digital.
I have no problem with Digital delay. Often prefer it.
But OP wants analog.
Yep. Similar to the cheaper power supplies that claim to be “isolated”. Helluva pedal, though, and repeats kinda like an analog.
I had a CC and an Aqua Puss for a while. I liked the AP better.
Then I figured out I prefer digital and traded both analogs away.
I didn't care for the sound of the MXR Carbon Copy either....my favorite overall delay that I've played so far is the EHX Memory Boy. I love delay pedals and I've played many other brands, analog and delay, true bypass and buffered with tails styled delays but I keep coming back to the basic EHX Memory Boy!
I’ve had a Boss DM-3, Melekko 616, JHS Panther Cub. Sold them all.
I currently have an MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe and it works well with a couple of my amps but not so well with others. I like it enough to keep it but its a backup to my Diamond Memory Lane Jr. (Not analog but sounds like it)
Two faves for me:
1. Maxon AD-10. Simple. Sounds great. Sits so well in a live mix into an overdriving amp. Slapback to multiple staccato repeats to long dreamy delays. This is my go to delay.
2. Aqua Puss. The new one is tiny. But it sounds great. Easiest slapback to set in the world. Something really interesting in the delays. Does surprisingly well with its "longest" setting (maybe 300 ms?) and with multiple repeats.
I had a Boss DD-2 in the 90s. It was fine but I lost track of during one of those extended periods of inactivity. Couple years ago I bought the Carbon Copy and I am completely happy with it. I don't notice the darkness that most people do, or at least nothing objectionable.
