Best delay pedals for less than $200?

Something similar to this I guess:

I like the sound of this but I'm wondering if I can get a similar one for cheaper or a better one for a similar price. Thanks.

You could get a used TC Electronics Flashback for under $200

^As well as the mini and the $169 version, which has multiple delay types.

I use a flashback and its a pretty versatile delay. Good bang for your buck.



I will say though, I miss the traditional tap tempo feature and the looper isnt too great IMO

You can also look into EHX's Memory (Boy, Man, Toy) line up.

Ibanez ES-2 is pretty good, though it has many fewer options and no looping function.

The digitals give you more features but I gotta give a +1 to the Malekko and Carbon Copy for tone. Just great sounding pedals. Tone or flexibility. It's whatever you're wanting to go after.

Seriously though it's the next thing on my board that's going to be switched out. Hello Malekko.

I've owned the boy and toy. They're built horribly and both broke within a couple of months.

Line6 Echo park or DL4?

You should be able to pick up the Echo park for well under budget.
It has tap tempo too.

OP do you want an analog or digital delay? That is the big factor

I picked up a Line 6 DL4 recently and the more I play on it the more I love it. It's got all the bells and whistles and all kinds of quirky tricks. It's a gigantic frickin' shoebox size pedal though. I got mine for $100 used. There's also the smaller DL8. I'm a fan of the TC Flashback and Flashback X4 too.

i grabbed a vox delay lab for 100bucks, does a bunch of cool stuff like lofi delay, rainbow machine, and the ambeint mode is amusing as well. it does the standard sounds ok to but its worth looking at they go for 100-150 used

yeah TC. i A/Bed almost every delay in my local GC and the TC easily was the most versaile and sounded almost as quslity as the analog delays. if something like the aqua puss just sounded better for "that one thing" (cause lets face it the aqua puss is a 1 trick pony) then the TC still one for having about 8 quality models AND tone print.

for me its a no brainer. oh yeah....looperrrrrrr. thats fun in my bedroom.

As most people have said already: TC Electronic Flashback is a great choice. Great array of effects in one pedal.
I have also recently added the MXR Carbon Copy to my board. A very simple, nice analogue pedal. If you don't need epic delays, I can definetely recommend this one. Also a good price (under 200 bucks).
