Help Choosing a Delay Pedal
I need help choosing a delay pedal guys. I've been looking at a lot of different ones and they all have their pros and cons. Here's a list of my stuff I've been thinking of getting:
This pedal sounds really cool. It's analog, it's true-bypass and it's got a cool little feature where the stock stockswitch is used for feedback/occilating delays. I like it because it's small and can use a voodoo labs power block.
Line 6 Echo Park
This pedal also sounds really cool. I like it for the immense power that it packs, all the delays and modes you could possably want with a tap tempo. Problem is it's Line 6, it's the EMG of the amp/effect world "it's sounds too digital... it's too lifeless blah blah blah even the analog settings sound too digital". Another problem is it uses a Line 6 power connector, while the voodoo labs power pack +2 says it'll power Line 6 pedals, a lot of people seem to be getting lots of noise and stuff if they don't use the OEM adaptor.
Visual Sound H2O Liquid Chorus/Delay
This pedal is freakin cool because it's 2 pedals in one. You get true analog chorus and a analog voiced digital delay, each channel can be used independently or together. I like it because it's cheap (I can get it for less than $100) and it sounds pretty good. My concern is, no true bypass and made in China (cheap parts).
Analog Man/Boss DD-6
Why not add the tride and true in here? Modified with a switch to make it sound more analog'y. My only concern? Everybody uses it. I wanna sound slightly different ya know?
