Delay peddles, and units.

I'm really wanting some nice analogue delay, and just wondering what people would recommend, I've already checked out the Vox Time Machine which seemed to limited, the Behringer VM1 (which actually seems alright), the MXR Carbon Copy (again seems alright), and the Digitech Time Bender (not entirely sold on it).

I'm mainly looking for around 500ms-800ms delay, that I can set as I want (none of this 100ms/250ms/500ms only stuff like the Vox unless you tap-time it). Rack - MIDI controlled is fine as long as its priced comparable to a normal peddle...

What's the difference between the Vypyrs and the Spiders? I though they were essentially the same thing?

They are, but the vypers sound much much better (imo), especially with the high gain models.

The Line6 stuff sounds ok in isolation (hell, I'm using a Line6 Pod 2.0 at the moment), but next to a Vypyr the Line6 stuff just sounds so digital and processed where as the Vypyr is such a natural sound.

Try both and see what you think.

The Carbon Copy and Malekko 616 seem like the popular options, but the EHX Memory Boy and the Analogman job are meant to be alright too. You won't be able to get much used though as analogue was stuck around 300ms for a long, long time.

Yep, unless you want to do silly noise-rock tricks, the analogue mode on a lot of the digital jobs is very convincing. The DD-20, RE-20, DL4 and Echo Park are also all worth checking out and can be gotten relatively cheap used from the US.

What do you guys actually use delays for anyway? I don't really use them for much more than beefing up solo's although when I have time (ie after exams) I wouldn't mind having a crack at some of this stuff;

Short delay low in the mix just for adding a bit of texture to clean guitar, as I think it works better than affordable simulated reverb, especially in front of an amp. Or occasionally some surf slapback. There are lots of faux-complexity tricks you can do with perfect timing though, like the above, or this:



Also silly noise-rock tricks. I have an old clip I can upload I think.

Yeh, I normally use my delay in a U2 style of way.

I also like using it to fill in riffs with notes that I played earlier.
