One of the delays that I was surprised wasn’t mentioned early on during the “Best delay pedal available today?” topic was the T-Rex Replica Delay / Echo Pedal. This pedal has been on my short list of delays to buy for a long long time. The transparency of the delay is really impressive. I also like the easy of use, simple knobs for echo (mix), level, repeat and tempo. You can also control the tempo with a switch, and a particular control I like is the ‘brown’ switch, which gives the delay sound a ‘darker’ and traditional analog vibe.
Here is the official description of the pedal:
This Guitar Player Editors’ Pick Award winner can hand you studio-quality cool digital delay or the warmth of all-tube echo with single pedal convenience. Its secret is 2 Burr Brown 24-bit converters (one A/D, one D/A) to sample at a sky-high rate of 200kHz! The circuitry is entirely analog, with the exception of the 24-bit converters and RAM. The unit features special touches like unity gain, a Brown button (repeat-only hi-cut filter), and hot-wire bypass. The Replica is capable of delay settings up to 1550ms, has a tap tempo function (which can be controlled via MIDI), and a subdivision function for triplet delay effects. Comes with an external 12 volt power supply.
