Re: What's your favorite Delay for Live and Recording? Pedals especially?
Picked up the Flashback x4 last month. Can't say enough good about it. Holds three foot switchable presets, tap tempo, about ten delays to include modded versions of the carbon copy analog and 2290 delays, 40 sec looper, easy to dial knobs, quarter/dotted eight/combined quarter and dotted eight rhythm selector switch, and four delay banks easily programmable through an iPhone app (thus the x4 in the name).
Best delay tones I've heard in awhile. Presets are very handy if you're going to be switching between parts in a song. Very versatile w true stereo outs and midi capable. Only two real drawbacks - cost (249.00), and amount of space it takes on your pedalboard.
My wife was listening live recently and said it sounds like a different guitar up there (in a good way, of course!)
