    I've heard good things about the Obscura. Lots of people like the Belle Epoch too, and for the same reasons. My search has been to find the anti-digital sound at a reasonable price as I don't use delay very often and don't want to put out much moolah for something non-essential. Otherwise I think I'd pick up one of the two.

    I don't know what your budget is, but the Obscura can be had for about $150 new, $100 or less used. And it's a digital pedal, but I wouldn't say that it sounds digital apart from being consistent and easy to control. The Tone and Degrade controls will muck your sound up good if you want it.

    I checked out some You
    Tube videos on the Earthquaker Dispatch Master. Sounds pretty impressive but again you can't switch between the two with a foot switch, you can only cut one side off by adjusting the knobs. Platefire

    I'm thinking of ordering one of these. The demos sound pretty good.

    Just looked at a video on the Atlantic Nux, another great sounding pedal!
    Wow! So many to choose from and there is still plenty more

    I did have a look at a couple of cheaper reverb/delay pedals in the $75 range. I watched a you tube on a Caline with seperate switches for R/D-----not bad! Can't remember what the other was.

    I had the caverns and was shocked at how cheesy the reverb was. I literally kept it one day.

    I usually like earthquaker but wasn't fond of the dispatch master either. Not terrible, just not a keeper and no separate switches as you and I both want.

    The one I haven't tried that meets your needs is the Nux Atlantic. Gets good reviews and is quite affordable.

    I went back to separate pedals for delay and reverb myself.

    Thanks for your comments Hoodster! First time I heard a negative comment on the Caverns but that's what I'm after is folks honest opinions. Platefire

    I have these delay pedals on my board, in order, Boss RV-3 delay, Diamond Counterpoint and Boss RV-3 reverb/delay, slight.

    I use various combinations, for electric, slide and lap steel.

    The Diamond Counterpoint, does not have any presets. It uses 4 settings, Vintage, MLJR, Ambient, 3 delays, Galloping Eights, dotted eights and quarter notes and Extra Faux Tape Delay, 1200 sec. The Counterpoint delay sits well in the mix and is excellent with gain.

    The Boss RV-3 has a small footprint with delay/reverb settings, plate is my favorite.

    YMMV

    I’ll put in a good word for the Digitech Obscura as well. It is one of my all time favorite delay pedals. Huge bang for the buck. I have 2 on my board. One for slap-back and one for longer delay. The tape echo and lo-fi settings are gorgeous IMO.

    Speaking of the RV3, #10 in the shootout, surprised after all these years of being out of production that it would be included with the latest delay/reverbs!
    I've been a RV3 user for years now on my second one, a later RI just before they quit making them all together. It just don't sound as good as the older one that smoked it's board. Right now I'm trying to use it as a long delay but no matter how I set it, just can't get what I want:>( Platefire
