What’s your favorite delay pedal you’re using... feel free to post pictures if you’d like.
I use a Mystery Brain digi-“tape” delay and a Maxon AD9 analog delay.
The “tape” delay with long repeats fed into the analog delay with a slapback makes for awesome dreamy echos.
MXR Carbon Copy
I've used an MXR Carbon Copy & Mystery Brain to great success in the past. I'm actually expecting a Boss DM-2w in the mail today!
MXR Carbon Copy V1
How about the option 'don't care'? I have analog and digital, and both sound terrific.
EHX DMM 1100TT does everything I want and makes me very happy.
Duo Jet > DMM > Matchless Lightning - I’m living the dream!
All likely have their time and place. My intent is not to say one sounds worse than another. It’s more to garner the preferred delay taste’s of the moment. Especially if you have to narrow it down to one vote in the survey.
Strymon Deco - so, a digital tape emulation.
Carbon Copy on longer delays... Mystery Brain for Slapback..
Still itching for a Mystery Brain, but that'll be a ways off yet....this guy is pretty nice, though...
Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital
I have a bunch of delays to choose from:
But mainly it's the Mystery Brain:
I'm sort of in the same camp. For the little bit of delay I use it doesn't matter a toss.
I've owned the carbon copy for years but have used a Joyo Digital and for the $200 buck difference in price both did the job for me.
TC Electronics Flashback II for me
I've used an oil can Del Ray, and a few tape delays---including a pair of Ampex 350 reel to reel recorders. Your survey questions need some rephrasing---tape and oil cans are analog, most everything else is digital.
I know the majority of us likely are not using a real Oil Can or Tape delay due to cost or maintenance. Maybe I’ll put the Pedal Form in the title in caps if it’ll help to clarify. I know in reality that both tape and oil can pedals are digital, but they have a distinct difference in characteristics compared to a traditional Digital delay.
Thats my favourite one!
Oil cans and tape are actually analog. Cascade types are digital. Most likely, if it's a pedal, it's digital. Anything mechanical is analog.
I saw this video a while back that made me think about doing the survey.
I hear what you’re saying by them being digital. But when it comes to wear, wow and flutter on some of the recent tape delays like Strymon or the Dunlop Echoplex.... they are partly digital by design but not by sound. The same goes for the oil can Adineko delay by Catalinbread. I’m not sure how they can make an analog pedal sound like oil swooshing around. But I could be wrong. Although I classify digital pedals in the survey as sound exactly like the dry path with no modulation. And with the repeats simply getting quieter.
