Today I dropped the following question at Twitter – “Best delay pedal available today?”. I really like to hear what others have to say about pedals. One cannot play every pedal, and play it to the point of really knowing them all really well. We’re left to everyone’s individual expert opinion of what works and especially what works for them.
That question is a pretty tough, in the sense that different delays offer different features, options, capabilities or tones. We talking analog or digital? We talking tap tempo or modeling? We talking about epic long sample rate or super sweet slap-back? A pedal that does it all or pedal that does one thing very well? Many factors make it ‘best’ for every individual or need depending on the song or the style of guitar play.
But with that said, it was interesting to see the pedals mentioned. Some I expected, some I was surprised to see mentioned.. or not mentioned. I thought I’d post the list of delays that were brought up and discuss each of them in more detail as the days go on. But I wanted to post the initial list here to see if we can further the discussion via the comments below.
- Boss RE-20 Space Echo
- Line 6 delay modeler
- Eventide TimeFactor Dual Delay
- Electro-Harmonix Memory Man Deluxe
