Hey guys,

So far these three seem best but I'm always up for recommendations. The DD-20 and Dl-4 are the easiest for me to get but the DD-20 is supposed to be a tone sucker and the Dl-4 is supposed so be realllly fragile. The Nova seems to sound nice and has a lot of presets but i heard that it too is really fragile.

I need something that can handle basic delays well but also be capable of doing sort of "out there" kind of stuff (I play experimental music).

What's a guy to do?

The TPR thread may be of some assistance.

the tc nova is the best of those for the features, I never heard of any reliability issues with it, but yeah if you take good care of it, it won't break

Check out the EHX Stereo Memory Man. It is on par with all three of those, if not better.

i love my dd-20. my presets are: digital delay, analog delay, warp delay and reverse. i mainly use the first two, but for craziness the latter two are particularly useful. i'm also looking to pick up a danelectro wasabi forward/reverse delay for crazier stuff, because nothing's crazier than a forward/reverse delay being forward reversed.

I'm a big fan of the DD-20 myself. Doesn't suck tone as far as my ears are concerned. And all the features are pretty darn cool; though I'm not a fan of "Slice"...

The DL-4 also can drop your volume quite a bit i've heard. It seems like there is no all aroud great delay right now beside the DD-3, and that doesnt have enough options of me.

Go for the Nova dude. It is NOT fragile. T.C. Electronics stuff is built to last.

Yeah right now the only thing wrong i can find with the Nova is that its going to be harder to buy (long story) and has no built in looper (i'd rather have a really solid delay pedal than have a mediocre one with a so-so looper though). The other two both seem really nice as well, with the boss i'm only concerned about losing tone and with the DL-4 i fear breakage and the volume drop, this is so complicated lol

EHX Stereo Memory Man is the answer. Solid as a rock, sounds great, tons of options, 30 sec looper and no noticable volume drop. Seriously, watch some demos and try it out - it is sick.

Nova dealy. It's the best sounding delay hands down, and it's built like a tank. I dont know where you heard that it is supposed to be fragile, well, it's not.
