    Agreed, although I wish it had a little more loop time, and that the delay effects worked while using the looper. If it had that and maybe were a little more intuitive it would be absolutely priceless.

    Wampler Analog Echo. Sounds gorgeous. No modulation, but otherwise a fantastic pedal.

    I've got an old DD2 that works fine for me, but I'm not really a big delay user.

    by far - Empress Superdelay.

    Don't bother buying crappy pedals that won't last, spend some good money and buy good pedals.

    Sorry, I just had to laugh at the Memory Lane being listed as a medium-priced pedal! It's a fantastic pedal, but jeez, I wish I had pockets deep enough to consider it medium-priced!

    I've been lusting for one of those for a while. Right now I have a Boss DM-3 set up for slap and a EHX DMM set up for long lush echoes. Together they take up a ton of space on the board, but they sound so good that I don't really want to tinker with something I like either.

    I've thought about picking up a single delay unit for slap back only.... and i still may one day... but for now the Empress does all that and more, including acting as a looper.

    In all honesty, i only use about 3 of the presets on the delay, so i'm not even using it to its full potential, and I could probably get away with having 2 smaller box units on my board, but, the superdelay gives me options. I like options. :D

    Just my opinion -

    Maxon AD999 - very nice. I like how the delay fades off when the pedal is switched off.
    Moog - Amazing sounding. On the noisy side. Very expensive.
    MXR Carbon Copy - sterile sounding. I'm not a huge fan. There are better cheap deals out there. The new EH Memory Toy is analog and true bypass for under (or around $100). I haven't heard it yet.
    Eventide Timefactor - Amazing digital delay(s). Very versatile.
    Fulltone Tape - Big, warm, lush, expensive.
    Diamond Memory Lane II - Nice. I really like Diamond products.
    EH Deluxe Memory Man - My favorite by a long shot. Priced right too. A lush warm delay with nice modulation. I loved it from the second I plugged it in. I have the Memory Boy coming this week. It looks great too.

    I've owned or played a few more, but these stick out in my head right now.

    Try it before you buy it. I'd figure out a way to make some room for the EH DMM.

    I've actually swapped things around again since then, and the DMM is still on there. I decided that I'm willing to make concessions to other things in order to allow the DMM to stay on the board. It's just too damned good!
