I know bugger all about pedals really but would like to hone in on a suitable delay pedal. So I apologise for the mass of information.
I think I need a delay pedal but I don’t really use one. I put this down to just not having the right one but maybe I just don’t need it? I sort of imagine it will give something “extra” to solos, making them sound a bit more expansive. Equally, we do a Cars song and I know he uses slap back on it.
I play in an unserious covers band playing standard rock n roll, bluesy stuff - Chuck Berry, Clapton, the Cars, Little Feat, Dire Straits, Bowie, Doobie Bros etc. It’s pretty eclectic. There may be room and motivation for original stuff sometime.
So I think I need a range from decent slap back to a nice echo or longer delay but it doesn’t need to be too eleborate or spacey. I currently have the EHX Deluxe Memory Man and find it too complicated to dial in different useable sounds although when you get one they sound good imo.
I generally tend towards analogue but maybe digital would be more suitable?
I’m pretty much exclusively Strat or Tele into a Tone King Imperial, which I’d call a bright amp, if that has a bearing on things? Although I sometimes use a Tweed Deluxe. I pretty much use just the Clean channel and drive from a Xotic BB preamp and occasional distortion from a Myomorpha (which sounds great for the price). I have a Thorpy Veteran on its way which may change things.
Budgetwise, I’m flexible but would probably buy used. I think a max would be about £150 but would prefer something in the £75-120 region (or less of course!)
Many thanks for any thoughts.
