This might be a stupid question to ask, but I'm just curious which delay pedal I should get. I'm willing to buy the Behringer DD100 because it's cheap for sound, but on second thought, I read reviews that there were issues with some people about this delay.
The other delay pedal I'd buy is the BOSS DD-3 which has more quality and better performance, but with a higher cost.
If there's a different delay pedal that you want to suggest about, please post.

Boss. If you really must save some money, try and get a Belcat delay.

I would go for the DD-7 personally, I owned the DD-3 and its great, but if you're going to go Boss than I say you should go all out, and get something with 40 seconds looping, 6 seconds of delay, and External Footswitch Tap Tempo.

No they are not. They are some of the worst delay pedals available, and yet still one of Boss' best new generation products

You'll actually find the Behringer will match the Boss for sound, but the durability is significantly less and the behringer is more noisy. I'd say save up a little more and get something nicer like an MXR Carbon Copy or a BYOC Delay, instead of being a tight-arse now and then throwing out the pedal 3 months down the track when you get a little wiser, I had to learn that the hard way unfortunately.

I disagree; DD-6 is more versatile. Way cooler. Plus, 6 is an even number.

Judging by your influences, you aren't going to need it for anything too extreme, so you may want to consider an Ibanez analog delay. You could probably find a used one pretty cheap. I've seen loads in my area. Being open to online shopping helps too (but I'm not, and I get around fine).
EDIT: Or a Carbon Copy, as the guy above me said. Anything nice and warm and organic sounding.

Anyway, thanks guys because I use a Behringer BO100 which is a good pedal for blues distortion so I asked if the DD100 is good enough also.

Not to make waves, but how is the DD-6 more versatile?

The DD-7 has more looping time, more delay, and considerably better options on it, plus the external footswitch control.

All things that make it MORE versatile than the DD-6. Plus on Guitarcenter right now their the same price.

Go with the Boss. Those things are invincible. If you want proof, I have an old DS-1 that's still working from when it was made back in 84.

So because YOU prefer analog delay, that instantly makes Boss digital delays "some of the worst available"?

Delay is one of the few effects I would consider buying Boss. Only digital though. That prompts me to ask a question though; i may just be having a brainfart, but do Boss even do an analogue delay?

The funny part is that he doesn't even acknowledge the difference (analog vs. digital) and I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't even know what it is.
Boss DDs are great pedals.

I'd go Boss, but if you can stretch your budget, a Carbon Copy or Memory Man.

Still i think if you want cool features in a delay you're pretty much going to have to go digital. But i also think the whole dominance of analog delays is a myth.

Id get the Ibanez DE7 delay, it offers more than the DD3 sounds better and has more delay time.

This would be okay, but if you can fork out the money for the DD-7 than you should do it.

I have the DE7, and for the money, it's pretty unbeatable. Of course if you have the money, then go for a Boss DD7. If you have even more money, go for an EHX Memory Man.

Neither pedal is great...the Behringer is pretty much a clone of the Boss with a plastic case. I've played both and they sound incredibly similar (yes this is a bad thing). If you want a digital delay I would give the Electro Harmonix Echo #1 a try. If you want an analog delay...go for the MXR Carbon Copy.
#40
I don't get the whole Carbon Copy bandwagon. I've played one, it was nothing special - I prefered the Modtone Analog Delay and the Ibanez AD9 for analog delay, but I prefer digital delay anyway.
