Malekko Ekko 616 sounds great, small, flexible, possibly no longer made. Ditto the DOD rubberneck, though it’s not small, it does do tricks. Carbon copy sounds pretty good and is still in circulation but I would look for a 616 if it was me.
It's actually quite easy now. Xvive produced MN3005s a few years ago and there are plenty for DIYers. They are also cheaper than the original Mitsubishi/Panasonic ones which are harder to find.I built a Madbean Aquaboy, a Boss DM-2/Aquapuss style circuit, it sounds great though I don't know how hard it is right now to get MN3005 type chips
MXR Carbon Copy. Not that I have tried many but I really like this one; easy to use too.I’m partial to my Ibanez AD-9, and it’s getting a little ancient. I don’t run many effects, typically just overdrive, sometimes a fuzz. The AD-9 is used to ‘cloud’ up the sound a little bit and it goes straight into the front of the amp with the OD, which is either a Tube Screamer or a DOD 250. The pedals all fit on a cutting board that I’ve covered with Velcro and fitted beneath with two wedge blocks. Simples.
Which analog delay do you like? Recommend me a chewy one! I feel some retail therapy coming with my tax return.
I bought CoolAudio MN3005's from Small Bear that I used in the Aquaboy. I see Amplified Parts has the Xvive chips at 23 bucks a pop, I've wanted to build Madbean's Deluxe Memory Man (Total Recall) but ouch, it needs two BBDs!It's actually quite easy now.
