    I usually don't use any effects. I've got an Ibanez DL5 and a CD10 delay champ that had
    been collecting dust for 20+ years. After hearing a friend use delay I started messing with
    my old delay pedals.

    Really liked the CD10 best and it seems easy on batteries. Used it on a gig last night, and
    a sound guy I know came by and said he really like my tone:) I left it on all night~
    level @2 repeat @1 and delay time @3 1/2

    Not a heavy effect but enough to add some ambiance. Going up on high strings seemed
    smoother, bass riffs seemed snappier, jazz chords seemed really lush...Don't think I'm in
    danger of building a pedal board, but delay has certainly found a spot in my arsenal.

    Pedal-itis is a serious condition and I'm afraid that it has already infected you. You're a goner. Next you'll be asking about low gain overdrives. Then you'll wonder about compressors and where in your signal chain to put a phaser and should you use the effects loop. It's a slippery slope my friend. Best advice, don't fight it. Subscribe to "That Pedal Show" and "Wampler Pedals" on YouTube and start your run down the rabbit hole.

    :D

    Suggesting that he subscribe to That Pedal Show and Wampler videos is like driving him into a den of crack dealers...have you no shame!!

    Ha! Just one pedal at a time.....

    Actually I use a Tube Screamer once in a while,
    mostly for slide. Also have a Boss tremolo that I
    used to use when I played with a drummer who
    liked to do a few CCR songs.

    Pedal-itis, can you get an immunization? Is it deadly?

    I understand that spouses often encourage the use of delay. :D

    Whatever you do, do not look at the prices of Mooer and Donner pedals...

    Some of the MFX pedals, have really good Delays, Reverbs, Tremolo and Tape Echo. I like the older Zoom models, that had a faster sample rate. Plus, it gives you the option of other effects, without a big price tag.

    I like just a touch of reverb and a little delay to make my guitar’s presence a little larger sonically. Really subtle use if that makes any sense. I’ve played with that sort of setup for a long time.

    This Ibanez CD10 seems to be a really smooth effect.
    I've got the dials set pretty low, level@2

    Starting Memorial Day through fall I'll be playing outdoors
    quite a bit. I'm wondering if I'll want bump the level up a
    bit in that environment? Right now I've got level@2
    repeat@1 delay time@3 1/2.
